Data Storage and Management
The Dell MD1200 is a 2U rack-mountable drive enclosure designed for use in enterprise data storage environments. It provides a scalable solution for expanding storage capacity by allowing users to add up to 12 3.5-inch SAS or SATA hard drives. The MD1200 supports both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives, and can accommodate up to 24TB of storage in a single enclosure.
In terms of data management, the MD1200 is designed to work seamlessly with other Dell PowerVault storage arrays, allowing users to easily manage their storage environment from a single console. The enclosure features hot-swappable drive bays, so users can easily replace failed drives without downtime. Additionally, the MD1200 supports a variety of data protection features, including RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and 50, to help ensure that data is protected against disk failure and data loss.
The MD1200 supports multiple host connections, making it easy to share storage across multiple servers. It also features a dual-controller design, which provides redundancy and improved performance by balancing the load between two controllers.
In terms of data access, the MD1200 supports SAS and SATA drives, so users can choose the right drives for their needs based on performance, capacity, and cost. Additionally, the enclosure supports a variety of protocols, including iSCSI, Fibre Channel, and NFS, so users can choose the right protocol for their environment.
Maximum Drive Capacity and Scalability
The Dell MD1200 drive enclosure is a 2U rack-mountable expansion array that provides scalable and flexible storage solutions for data centers. It supports both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch SATA or SAS hard drives and has a maximum drive capacity of 12 drives per unit.
The scalability of the MD1200 drive enclosure is achieved through the use of multiple units that can be added to the existing setup as the data storage requirements grow. Each unit can be managed individually, and the data can be aggregated through the use of a storage area network (SAN) solution. This allows organizations to easily expand their storage capacity without having to invest in a completely new storage solution.
In terms of maximum drive capacity, the Dell MD1200 supports up to 12 drives per unit, providing a maximum storage capacity of up to 96TB (using 8TB hard drives). This makes it suitable for organizations with growing storage requirements, as it provides ample space for data storage, and can be easily expanded as needed.
High Availability and Redundancy
High availability and redundancy are important factors in ensuring that data storage systems remain operational even in the event of hardware failures or other disruptions. The Dell MD1200 Drive Enclosure 2U Rack-Mountable Expansion Array is designed to provide both high availability and redundancy, helping to ensure that stored data is always accessible and protected.
One of the key features of the MD1200 is its redundant, hot-swappable power supplies and cooling fans, which provide automatic failover in the event of a hardware failure. This means that even if one of the power supplies or fans fails, the system will continue to operate normally and will not disrupt data access.
Additionally, the MD1200 supports multiple arrays, allowing for multiple data storage options and further increasing the overall availability of the system. This means that if one array fails, data can be accessed from another array without interruption.
The MD1200 also includes redundant SAS expansion ports, which allow for additional arrays to be added as needed. This allows for even greater data storage capacity and redundancy, ensuring that even if one array fails, there is still another array available to provide access to stored data.

About Refurbished Products
Hard Drive Cage
A server rack is a specialized rig to hold the networking equipment and server rig efficiently. But many of you might get confused between the server racks and enclosures while buying one for home use or server rooms. Here is a quick insight into the basic purpose of both for better understanding.
If you're looking for a rack to hold the server cables and peripheral rig, the server racks can be utilized for this purpose. These server racks will perform best in the large industrial space where employees don't see the naked wiring.
On the contrary, we have the server enclosure, which serves as a replacement for server racks with a better concealing and neater look. Moreover, a noteworthy feature that makes them a much-preferred option among tech-savvies is the increased safety and security. Not only this but plenty of other reasons would urge you to buy a hard drive cage.
Apart from the technical benefits, the server enclosure HDD cage aces in increasing the aesthetics, setting up the HDDs, and the overall performance.
Increased Performance and Activity:
The proper airflow needs the server rig, especially the hard drive, to perform better. But what if the hard drives are stacked on each other and placed irregularly! This way, the temperature will rise continuously, and eventually, the HDDs will not be able to function correctly.
Even keeping the hard drives on the tabletop can cause overheating. Thus, the server enclosures, mainly the storage drive cage will help you maximize the airflow. In this regard, we have 2 Bay, 2U, Fibre Channel, Proliant, Rack Mount, SAS, and SAS-SATA based cages to complete your rig!
Security measures need to be fulfilled on a priority basis! Thus, a hard drive cage enables the tech-savvies to save the HDDs from unwanted access! Having the naked HDDs in front of you while keeping them without a cage is similar to locks on the door with open windows.
Thus, most of the cages are built with locks and security to keep them safe from unwanted persons and avoid a security breach.
The HDDs might get corrupted due to plenty of reasons! But imagine going into a room with hard drives stacked on each other and all messed up with cables around. Don't worry, as you're equipped with the server enclosure - storage drive cage, making it easier for the professionals to run the security and maintenance check. Thus, the service and maintenance bill which are being charged per hour will be much lesser. Therefore, we have got you covered with a range of HDD cage products, including Storage Bay Adapter, SCSI, Thinkpad, 25Bay, and 8 Bay.
