Lenovo Storage S3200
Lenovo Press Product Guide
The Lenovo® Storage S3200 (as shown in the following figure) is a versatile storage system that provides
simplicity, speed, scalability, security, and high availability for small to large businesses. The S3200 SAN
array delivers enterprise-class storage management technology in a cost-effective solution with a wide
choice of host connectivity options, flexible drive configurations, and enhanced data management
features.
The S3200 is a perfect fit for for a wide range of workloads, from specialized workloads (such as big data
and analytics, video surveillance, media streaming, and private clouds) to general purpose workloads
(such as file and print serving, web serving, email and collaboration, and OLTP databases). The S3200 is
also well-suited for secure archive storage or a consolidated backup solution.
Figure 1. Lenovo Storage S3200
The S3200 offers the flexible choice of storage connectivity protocols: 6/12 Gb SAS, 1 G,b or 10 Gb
iSCSI, and 4/8/16 Gb Fibre Channel (FC). The Converged Network Controller (CNC) design of the S3200
makes the selection of iSCSI or FC host connectivity (or both FC and iSCSI) as simple as attaching
corresponding transceivers or 10 GbE SFP+ Direct-Attach Copper (DAC) cables to the SFP/SFP+ ports
on the RAID controller.
The S3200 supports up to 192 drives with up to seven external expansion enclosures and it offers flexible
drive configurations with the choice of 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drive form factors, 10 K or 15 K rpm SAS and
7.2K rpm NL SAS hard disk drives (HDDs) and self-encrypting drives (SEDs), and SAS solid-state drives
(SSDs). The S3200 can be scaled up to 576 TB of raw storage capacity.
Did you know?
The S3200 supports Intelligent Real-time Tiering capabilities that help optimize system performance,
reduce costs, and simplify management. The base software includes the ability to move data dynamically
between SAS HDDs that are optimized for cost per IOPS and NL SAS HDDs that are optimized for cost
per GB. With the optional software license, the S3200 supports hybrid tiering across HDDs and SSDs.
With flexibility of the Converged Network Controllers, the S3200 supports hybrid iSCSI and Fibre Channel
connectivity at the same time.
The S3200 supports battery-free cache protection, which reduces maintenance costs and provides
permanent backup of unwritten cache data if there is a power failure.
