The PowerVault ME5012 is part of Dell's ME5 Series of storage arrays, which can be deployed in either SAN or DAS configurations. The ME5 Series is optimized to run a variety of mixed workload applications – physical and virtual – for small businesses. Whether you need to consolidate your block storage, support applications without the need for low latency flash and NVMe, take advantage of intelligent data management or scale capacity to keep pace with data growth, then PowerVault ME5 is ready to meet your growing business needs. The flexibility of PowerVault ME5 offers multiple protocols, supports a wide range of drive types and capacities, scales up to 8PB capacity, validated with Dell PowerEdge Servers (16G ready) and is delivered to you with all-inclusive software – so you’ll have the needed data services to store, manage, and protect your data.
Using fast Intel Xeon processors, Dell PowerVault ME5 storage implements a dual-active controller architecture, 12GB/sec read and 10GB/sec write throughput and uses a 12Gb SAS backend protocol for rapid capacity expansion. The two non-dense ME5 base arrays start at 2U and the dense ME5 array starts at 5U. The base models all support dual-active controllers with each controller including 16GB of memory. Optional ME5 expansion enclosures let you scale up to 336 drives or 8PB. PowerVault ME412 and ME424 expansion enclosures can only be used with either ME5012 or ME5024 base arrays. The ME484 dense expansion enclosure is supported behind any of the ME5 base arrays. A variety of SSD, 10K and NLSAS drives (including FIPS-certified SEDs) are available.
