Veritas 2U12 49TB Storage Shelf overview
The optional Veritas 2U12 49TB Storage Shelf is a 2U12 drive enclosure that contains twelve 6TB 7200 rpm SAS hard disk drives. Available storage capacity of the storage shelf is 49TBs. Each disk drive can be accessed from the storage shelf's front panel. An embedded RAID controller is used to configure the disk drives into a RAID 6 configuration. One of the disk drives is reserved as a hot spare.
The Veritas 2U12 49TB Storage Shelf also contains two Storage Bay Bridge 2.1 compliant (SBB) Input/Output (I/O) modules. Each I/O module has three SAS-3 ports, which are labeled A, B, and C. As such, each storage shelf contains a total of six SAS-3 I/O ports. However, only ports A and B of each I/O module are used to connect the storage shelf to the appliance or other storage shelves.
Each I/O module also includes one Ethernet port and a 3.5mm RS232 Interface-to-Enclosure Services Processor jack. The Ethernet port and the RS232 jack are only used during on-site debugging operations. They are not used during normal appliance operations.
Along with the I/O modules and the disk drives, the Veritas 2U12 49TB Storage Shelf also includes a front control panel. The control panel provides LED indications of the health of the storage shelf. It uses a dual seven segment display for enclosure identification and a switch that is used for storage shelf configuration purposes.
The Veritas 2U12 49TB Storage Shelf serial number appears on a plastic panel on the left side of Power Cooling Module 0 (PCM 0). The storage shelf serial number begins with the letters SH.
