Lenovo SAN Storage S3200
The Lenovo® Storage S3200 is a versatile storage system that is designed to provide simplicity, speed, scalability, security, and high availability for small to large businesses. The S3200 SAN array delivers enterprise-class storage management technology in a cost-effective solution with a wide choice of host connectivity options, flexible drive configurations, and enhanced data management features.
The S3200 is a perfect fit for a wide range of workloads, from specialized workloads such as big data and analytics, video surveillance, media streaming, and private clouds to general purpose workloads such as file and print serving, web serving, e-mail and collaboration, and OLTP databases. The S3200 is also suited very well for secure archive storage or a consolidated backup solution.
The S3200 offers the flexible choice of storage connectivity protocols: 6/12 Gb SAS, 1 Gb or 10 Gb iSCSI, and 4/8/16 Gb Fibre Channel (FC). Converged Network Controller (CNC) design of the S3200 makes the selection of iSCSI or FC host connectivity (or both FC and iSCSI) as simple as attaching corresponding transceivers or 10 GbE SFP+ Direct-Attach Copper (DAC) cables to the SFP/SFP+ ports on the RAID controller.
The S3200 supports up to 192 drives with up to seven external expansion enclosures, and it offers flexible drive configurations with the choice of 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drive form factors, 10K or 15K rpm SAS and 7.2K rpm NL SAS hard disk drives (HDDs) and self-encrypting drives (SEDs), and SAS solid-state drives (SSDs). The S3200 can be scaled up to 576 TB of raw storage capacity.
