Base Platform Key Value:

  • Flexibility

    • A single modular platform can address a wide rangeof storage and application needs to meet virtually any business objective with a single flexible platform.

  • Adaptability

    • The configuration choices ensure that customers can adapt the system to meet expanding/changing business objectives.

  • Scalability

    • Extreme capacity and processing density can enable consolidation efforts, reclaim floor space and lower environmental costs. Innovative dual access chassis design enables easy serviceability in even the largest systems.
