Supported system drive and capacities

The DR Series system is available in the following models:

  • DR4300e core system - Consists of preinstalled DR Series system software on a modified Dell PowerEdge R730xd appliance platform with no WAM2 card installed.
  • DR4300e standard system - Consists of preinstalled DR Series system software on a modified Dell PowerEdge R730xd appliance platform.
  • DR4300 system - Consists of preinstalled DR Series system software on a modified Dell PowerEdge R730xd appliance platform and offers a higher base capacity than the DR4300e.
  • DR6300 system - Consists of preinstalled DR Series system software Dell PowerEdge R730xd appliance platform and offers a higher base capacity than the DR4300.
  • DR2000v system - A Virtual Machine (VM) template of the DR Series system. For details on the virtual platforms supported, see the topic, "Supported Virtual Environments for DR2000v" in this document.

The DR Series system software is also supported on the following earlier models of the DR Series system:

  • DR4000 system - Consists of preinstalled DR Series system software on a modified Dell PowerEdge R510 appliance platform.
  • DR4100 system - Consists of preinstalled DR Series system software on a modified Dell PowerEdge R720xd appliance platform.
  • DR6000 system - Consists of preinstalled DR Series system software on a modified Dell PowerEdge R720xd appliance platform and offers a higher level of included system hardware.

Internal system drive capacity

The following tables define the internal system drive capacity and available physical capacity in decimal and binary values for the physical DR Series hardware appliances. The capacity values listed represent the internal drive and available physical capacities that have been adjusted for the associated overhead in the DR Series system releases.

NOTE: TB and GB represent terabytes and gigabytes in decimal values, and TiB represents tebibytes in binary values. Tebibytes are a standards-based binary multiple of the byte, a unit of digital information storage.
