Dell PowerVault MD3200i Series The PowerVault™
The Dell™ PowerVault™ MD3200/MD3220 series of storage arrays is a high-performance 6Gb shared storage solution providing high availability data access. As the next generation of our directly connected shared Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) arrays, this series offers exceptional flexibility and scalability and is ideal for consolidating up to four servers in clustered or virtualized environments. The PowerVault MD3200 array is well suited for deployments where cost per GB is a key requirement. The PowerVault MD3220 array is an optimal solution when cost/performance (IOPS) is a primary consideration.

A dedicated, high availability shared storage solution
The PowerVault MD3200/MD3220 series of arrays raises the bar for scalability and flexibility in the entry-level storage space. You can connect up to four high-availability servers or eight nonredundant servers for balanced performance in mixed virtualized workloads. MD3200 series arrays are ideal for Microsoft® Hyper-V™ and VMware® ESX virtual environments.

Support even the most performance-hungry applications
MD3200/MD3220 series arrays deliver an exceptional price/performance ratio. 6Gb/s SAS doubles the throughput capability of previous generation SAS arrays. These arrays meet the demands of large database applications with:
  • Increased processing capability
  • Four SAS ports per controller
  • High Performance Tier firmware upgrade to boost
performance MD3200/MD3220 series arrays also support solid state drives (SSD) for the most demanding I/O applications.

Gain a new level of management efficiency
MD3200/MD3220 series arrays are managed by the advanced MD Storage Manager software, an intuitive, easy to use clientbased Java application. Designed for easy user interaction with the system no matter what your level offamiliarity with storage systems, it offers two different management paths and features an enterprise window that monitors multiple systems through a single interface. Wizard-based array management helps simplify the configuration process. MD Storage Manager detects and alerts you to problems, and launches an automatic Recovery Guru to help you troubleshoot and resolve the problem. It’s simple—the expertise is built into the software. The PowerVault vCenter plug-in and vSphere Storage APIs - Storage Awareness (VASA) provides VMware administrators with powerful capabilities designed to increase their productivity and simplify their jobs.

Deployment scalability and flexibility
Scale up. Mix and match drive types to create a tiered
data environment.
Scale Easily: Up to 8 servers in a non-HA configuration or 4 servers in a High Availability configuration can be directly connected to a single MD3200 or MD3220 storage system. Storage capacity can be expanded up to a base of 120 hard drives, with an option to grow to 192 hard drives. Scaling capacity is as simple as hot plugging in additional PowerVault MD1200 and/or PowerVault
MD1220 expansion enclosures.
Mix and Match Drives: MD3200 arrays can hold up to twelve (12) 3.5 inch form factor hard drives and MD3220 arrays hold up to twenty-four(24) 2.5 inch drives. Both the MD1200 enclosure, which houses a total of twelve 3.5” hard drives, and the MD1220 enclosure, which houses a total of twenty-four 2.5” drives, can be added behind MD3200 series arrays, enabling you to mix 3.5” and 2.5” drives in the same array. This flexibility enables data tiering for optimizing system performance.

Optional data protection Snapshots: Take point-in-time snapshots of data for backup and other operations. The MD3200/MD3220 series supports up to 16 snapshots per virtual disk and a total of 256 snapshots per system. Snapshot scheduler and Snapshot Rollback are features included in the Premium Feature Key providing additional data availability. Virtual Disk Copy (VDC): Make exact, point-in-time full replications of existing virtual disks for decision support and software development testing. Reads and writes are supported while doing a virtual copy. Self-encrypting Drives (SEDs): SEDs encrypt everything written to the drive and de-crypt everything read from the drive. Once an SED is secured, it becomes “locked” and unreadable by unauthorized persons if the drive is ever removed from the array.

Additional hard drives Premium Feature Key Ability to add up to 192 hard drives providing additional capacity to the MD Series of arrays.
