The Lenovo Storage E1024 has the flexibility and capacity to handle many different types of workloads. You can start with one E1024 enclosure as a simple JBOD, and later daisy-chain up to 7 more on a single HBA port. This provides support for up to 192 hot-swap SAS drives per array.
Supported drives include 15,000rpm, 10,000rpm, and 7,200rpm HDDs, secure self-encrypting HDDs (SEDs), and SSDs for read-intensive workloads. The E1024 supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, 50, 6, and 60, using a variety of RAID HBAs. A single daisy chain of E1024 units can contain a combination of HDDs and SSDs, with different speeds and capacities. Moreover, if high-capacity 3.5-inch HDDs are required, E1012 expansion units may be included in the daisy chain.
