Greater Performance

Designed for entry-level to medium businesses, the Dell PowerVault MD3420 uses 12Gb near-line SAS drives and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). With single or dual active controllers, the MD3420 is a 2U, 24-drive enclosure that can support 4GB cache per controller, or 8GB cache per controller. When expanding with 192 HDDs using MD1200 or MD1220, the MD3420 has up to 768TB of raw capacity.

Management Efficiency

The Dell PowerVault MD3420 is managed by the advanced MD Storage Manager software, which is designed for easy user interaction.  This software can manage all administrative tasks and can be completed with no system downtime and no interruption to the performance of the array.

Data Protection

With additional PowerVault options, replicate data and easily recover files to keep valuable information safe on the MD3420. These options include Remote Replication, Snapshots, Virtual Disk Copy (VDC), Self-encrypting drives (SEDs), and Instant Secure Erase.
