Lenovo ThinkServer SA120 Storage Array
Product Guide
The ThinkServer SA120 direct-attach 2U rack-mount storage array provides high-density expansion and
enterprise-grade reliability. It is an ideal tiered storage solution for data center deployments, distributed
enterprises, or small businesses.
The SA120 offers 12 3.5-inch hot-swap 6 Gb SAS drive bays at the front of the enclosure plus four optional 2.5-
inch hot-swap SATA solid-state drive bays at the rear of the enclosure for data caching to improve throughput.
The SA120 also supports two I/O controllers for redundant host connectivity.

Did you know?
The SA120 is ideal for applications that need a large amount of direct-attach storage. The SA120 supports 6 TB
drives in the front bays and 800 GB solid-state drives (SSDs) in the rear bays, which results in a storage capacity
of 75.2 TB. Multiple SA120 enclosures can be daisy-chained together off the one RAID controller if wanted, up to
4 enclosures per port (8 for a dual-port RAID card) and up to 64 drives per port (128 per dual-port RAID card).
The SA120 is now interoperable with ThinkServer and System x servers by using ThinkServer adapters. This
interoperability provides all servers a cost-effective solution to expand server capacity without introducing
complexity into your server environment.
The use of the ThinkServer Storage Array Tower Conversion Kit enables the SA120 to be deployed as a tower
unit, which is ideal for customers that use tower form-factor servers.
