Expansion enclosures

In the base configuration, the ThinkSystem DE6600F and DE6600H supports attachment of up to four expansions: 4xDE600S 4U60 LFF, or 4xDE240S 2U24 SFF, or 4xDE120S 2U12 LFF. These expansions can be mixed up to the aforementioned maximums.

Maximum drives:

  • All Flash- 120 (1 x DE6600F controller NVMe + 4xDE240S SAS, SSD)
  • Hybrid- 444 (1 x DE6600H controller NVMe + 7xDE600S SAS, SSD)

Note: DE120S and DE600S are not supported with All Flash controller.

The following table lists the CTO base models for the ThinkSystem DE Series expansion enclosures.

Table 6. ThinkSystem DE240S, DE120S, and DE600S CTO base models

Configuration notes:

  • For an all-flash configuration (DE6600F enclosure controller and DE240S expansion controllers) SSDs only (no HDD drives support). Such configuration supports a maximum of 120 SSDs.
  • For hybrid configuration (DE6600H enclosure controller and expansion controllers (DE120S/DE240S/DE600S)) NL-SAS and SSDs drives are supported.
  • A minimum of 20 drives is required for each 4U60 LFF enclosure (the front row of each drawer must be populated with four drives).
  • Intermix of FIPS drives and non-FIPS drives is supported within the system.

Software

The following functions are included with every ThinkSystem DE6600F and DE6600H:

  • RAID levels 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, and 10: Provide the flexibility to choose the level of performance and data protection required.
  • Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) technology: Helps improve performance and availability with significantly faster rebuild time and reduced exposure to multiple drive failures by allowing data and built-in spare capacity to be distributed across all physical drives in the storage pool.
  • All Flash Array (AFA) capability: Meets the demand for higher speed storage and provide higher IOPS and bandwidth with lower power usage and total cost of ownership than hybrid or HDD-based solutions.
  • Snapshots: Enables creation of copies of data for backup, parallel processing, testing, and development, and have the copies available almost immediately
  • Encryption: Provides encryption for data at rest for enhanced data security with the optional FIPS 140-2 Level 2 drives and embedded key management (AES-256) or an external key management server.
  • Automatic load balancing: Provides automated I/O workload balancing of I/O traffic from the hosts across both controllers.
  • Data assurance: Ensures industry-standard T10-PI end-to-end data integrity in the storage system (from the host ports to the drives).
  • Dynamic volume and capacity expansion: Allows the capacity of a volume to be expanded by adding new physical drives or making use of unused space on existing drives.

Software maintenance is included in the ThinkSystem DE6600F and DE6600H base warranty and optional warranty extensions, which provides 3-year software support with the option to extend it up to 5 years in 1-year or 2-year increments (see Warranty and support for details).

Management

The DE6600F and DE6600H supports the following management interfaces:

  • ThinkSystem System Manager, a web-based interface via HTTPS for single-system management, that runs on the storage system itself and requires only a supported browser, so there is no need for a separate console or plug-in. For more information, see the System Manager Online Help.
  • ThinkSystem SAN Manager, a host-installed GUI-based application, for centralized management of multiple storage systems. For more information, see the SAN Manager Online Help.
  • ThinkSystem DE Series Storage Plugin for vCenter. For more information, see the DE Series vCenter Plugin Online Help.
  • Command line interface (CLI) via SSH or through serial console. For more information, see the CLI Online Help.
  • Syslog, SNMP, and e-mail notifications.
  • Optional Lenovo XClarity Administrator support for discovery, inventory, and monitoring.

    Quarterly reviews check error logs, verify firmware and operating system device driver levels, and software as needed. Lenovo will also maintain records of latest patches, critical updates, and firmware levels, to ensure customer's systems are providing business value through optimized performance.

  • Technical Account Management (TAM)

    A Lenovo Technical Account Manager helps customers optimize operations of their data centers based on a deep understanding of customer's business. Customers gain direct access to a Lenovo TAM, who serves as their single point of contact to expedite service requests, provide status updates, and furnish reports to track incidents over time. Also, a TAM helps proactively make service recommendations and manage service relationship with Lenovo to make certain that customer's needs are met.

  • YourDrive YourData

    Lenovo’s YourDrive YourData service is a multi-drive retention offering that ensures that customer's data is always under their control, regardless of the number of drives that are installed in their Lenovo system. In the unlikely event of a drive failure, customers retain possession of their drive while Lenovo replaces the failed drive part. Customer's data stays safely on customer premises, in their hands. The YourDrive YourData service can be purchased in convenient bundles with Foundation, Essential, or Advanced Service upgrades and extensions.

  • Health Check

    Having a trusted partner who can perform regular and detailed health checks is central to maintaining efficiency and ensuring that customer systems and business are always running at their best. Health Check supports Lenovo-branded server, storage, and networking devices, as well as select Lenovo-supported products from other vendors that are sold by Lenovo or a Lenovo-Authorized Reseller.

Some regions might have different warranty terms and conditions than the standard warranty. This is due to local business practices or laws in the specific region. Local service teams can assist in explaining region-specific terms when needed. Examples of region-specific warranty terms are second or longer business day parts delivery or parts-only base warranty.

If warranty terms and conditions include onsite labor for repair or replacement of parts, Lenovo will dispatch a service technician to the customer site to perform the replacement. Onsite labor under base warranty is limited to labor for replacement of parts that have been determined to be field-replaceable units (FRUs). Parts that are determined to be customer-replaceable units (CRUs) do not include onsite labor under base warranty.

If warranty terms include parts-only base warranty, Lenovo is responsible for delivering only replacement parts that are under base warranty (including FRUs) that will be sent to a requested location for self-service. Parts-only service does not include a service technician being dispatched onsite. Parts must be changed at customer’s own cost and labor and defective parts must be returned following the instructions supplied with the spare parts.

Lenovo support services are region-specific. Not all support services are available in every region. For information about Lenovo support services that are available in a specific region, refer to the following resources:

  • Assessment Services

    An Assessment helps solve your IT challenges through an onsite, multi-day session with a Lenovo technology expert. We perform a tools-based assessment which provides a comprehensive and thorough review of a company's environment and technology systems. In addition to the technology based functional requirements, the consultant also discusses and records the non-functional business requirements, challenges, and constraints. Assessments help organizations like yours, no matter how large or small, get a better return on your IT investment and overcome challenges in the ever-changing technology landscape.

  • Design Services

    Professional Services consultants perform infrastructure design and implementation planning to support your strategy. The high-level architectures provided by the assessment service are turned into low level designs and wiring diagrams, which are reviewed and approved prior to implementation. The implementation plan will demonstrate an outcome-based proposal to provide business capabilities through infrastructure with a risk-mitigated project plan.

  • Basic Hardware Installation

    Lenovo experts can seamlessly manage the physical installation of your server, storage, or networking hardware. Working at a time convenient for you (business hours or off shift), the technician will unpack and inspect the systems on your site, install options, mount in a rack cabinet, connect to power and network, check and update firmware to the latest levels, verify operation, and dispose of the packaging, allowing your team to focus on other priorities.

  • Deployment Services

    When investing in new IT infrastructures, you need to ensure your business will see quick time to value with little to no disruption. Lenovo deployments are designed by development and engineering teams who know our Products & Solutions better than anyone else, and our technicians own the process from delivery to completion.
