The IBM System Storage EXP5060 Expansion Unit (Figure
D.8) unit offers tremendous storage density and signifcant
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 enclo-
sures, which means a 1.44 PB DS5000 series system can now
reside in a standard 19-inch rack. The highly effcient power
supplies and cooling fans enable the EXP5060 to reduce pow-
er consumption and increased density reduces foor space
requirement by up to 50 percent when compared to previous
generation enclosures.
Here are some quick EXP5060 facts:

• Designed to expand the capacity of theDS5000 series storage
systems and supports up to 60 SATA drives in just 4U of rack
space—reducing the physical footprint by up to 50 percent

• Reduces power consumption with an intelligent design and
high-effciency power supplies

• Offers uninterrupted data availability, with online service-
ability of individual drives

• Eliminates excessive front weight on the rack, with individual
extension of 12-drive drawers.
