Notes
1. Maximum performance configuration consists of 4x CS700 arrays, each with ES1-AFS All-Flash expansion shelf and 3x ES1-H65 capacity expansion shelves.
2. Raw and effective capacities are calculated using Base 10 (i.e., 1 TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes) after excluding space for parity, spares, and system overhead; the range represents 0 to 2x compression.
3. Maximum capacity is the capacity of the base array and maximum number of expansion shelves
4. Minimum usable capacity denotes the base capacity available to users once parity, spares and system overhead are deducted from overall raw capacity. Compression increases overall effective capacity.
5. Compression rates vary across applications. 2x compression factor reflected in upper range of effective capacity (based on actual compression rates seen by customers.)
