Storage nodes

Storage nodes include control modules and disk drives. They receive power and network connections from the Flex System Enterprise Chassis.

An Flex System storage node consists of a storage control enclosure mounted in an Flex System Enterprise Chassis. Each storage node might also include one or more storage expansion enclosures.

See the Flex System v7000 storage node information page for more information about the storage nodes that are available for the Flex System Enterprise Chassis.

Note: A 4-bay storage control enclosure or expansion enclosure occupies four adjacent node bays (two vertically and horizontally) in the chassis and requires the chassis shelves and shelf supports to be removed prior to installation.
