volume movement among arrays is enabled, allowing the combined capacity and cache of the entire federated cluster to be seamlessly utilized for maximum
performance and scalability in expanding data centers. For example, a cluster of 10 SC7020F arrays can provide a total of 5,000 drives (up to 30PB raw capacity) with over
2.5TB of system memory.
