PowerVault NX3600 and NX3610 NAS Appliance

PowerVault NX3600

Data storage, simplified.

Get an integrated block and file storage solution that allows modular scale-out capabilities with a PowerVault NX-series storage appliance for GbE or 10GbE networks.

  NAS appliance
Each 2U NX3600 (1 GbE) or NX3610 (10 GbE) appliance includes two NAS controllers that operate in an active-active environment with cache mirroring between controller pairs
  Storage arrays supported
The NX3600 and NX3610 work with all Dell PowerVault MD 3200i and 3600i Series iSCSI arrays - MD3200i, MD3220i, MD3600i, MD3620i
  Expansion capability
The capacity of an NX3600 system can be expanded by adding additional MD1200 Series expansion enclosures. The capacity of an NX3610 system can be expanded with one additional MD 3200i or MD3600i Series iSCSI array and with MD 1200 Series expansion enclosures. An additional NX3610 can be added to an NX3610 configuration to increase performance.
  Maximum File System Capacity
576TB raw capacity per appliance with 1 MD iSCSI array and multiple expansion enclosures. A system with 2 NX3610 appliances can support 1PB raw capacity with 2 MD iSCSI arrays and multiple expansion enclosures.
NX3600 and NX3610 appliances contain dual active-active controllers that manage the file workload in a single namespace for 1 NX3600 appliance (2 controllers) or 2 NX3610 appliances (4 controllers).
