As the amount of data your organization generates and stores continues to grow exponentially, it becomes an increasing challenge to fit needed storage drives into limited floor space—not to mention power and cool all the systems. The IBM® System Storage® EXP5060 expansion unit offers tremendous storage density and significant operational savings for data-intensive applications and other environments that store vast amounts of data.
The 60-drive EXP5060 expansion unit provides up to three times greater storage density than traditional drive enclosures, which means a 1.44 PB DS5000 series system can now reside in a standard 19-inch rack. The highly efficient power supplies and cooling fans enable the EXP5060 to reduce power consumption and increased density reduces floor space requirement by up to 50 percent when compared to previous generation enclosures.*
