The next-generation 12 Gb SAS HPE D3700 Disk Enclosure simplifies the capacity expansion of HPE ProLiant server and HPE BladeSystem environments to external storage. Without having to make the switch to SAN or NAS, the HPE D3700 allows users to buy storage to meet current needs and simply add more as storage needs grow. It is ideal for remote offices, departmental locations, and small application environments. The HPE D3700 is a 2U enclosure that offers 25 SFF drive bays. At a maximum configuration of 8 shelves, it can manage up to 200 disks in Raid 0, 1, 1+0, 5, Raid 6 with ADG, 50, and 60 off a single controller port. With high levels of reliability and redundancy, the HPE D3700 reduces the single point of failure within the storage network. It is compatible with selected HP Smart Array SAS Controllers and HBAs, and provides Systems Insight Manager support. The HPE D3700 disk enclosure requires little IT experience to manage and features support for the HPE SmartDrive Carrier, (Gen8 ProLiant Drives). This allows a single set of similar drives to be purchased and used interchangeably for Gen8 ProLiant servers and D3000 enclosures. The HPE D3700 also uses familiar HPE ProLiant management tools including the HPE Array Configuration Utility (ACU) software and HPE Systems Insight Manager. The HPE D3700 also is compatible with many operating systems including Microsoft Windows 2003, 2008, and 2012, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux, and VMware.
