    Implement with flexibility

    With extreme flexibility and impressive performance and capacity, the DS4200 helps you tame the storage monster. Using 3.5-inch (LFF) or 2.5-inch (SFF) HDDs and SSDs, the DS4200 supports up to 240 drives (using 9 expansion units), as well as mixing LFF and SFF enclosures in the same array.

    As your business grows, consider upgrading to the DS6200 for higher performance, additional fabric support, more ports, and more expansion units. No data migration, reestablishing LUNs, or changing licenses is needed with this upgrade.

    For ultimate flexibility, the DS Series supports replication between its new 12Gb platform and first-generation S Series systems. This enables you to move your high-performance workloads to the faster DS Series and redeploy the older models as data lakes or replication targets.
