Footnotes:

* The ESXi 5.5 version is VM hardware 10-based. This means you must use the Web client, and not the vSphere client.

NOTE: Capacity for the DR Series system is technically measured in TiB, where 4TiB  is equal to 4.398 TB. In the case of the 12 TiB drive, it is equal to 13.194 TB of storage capacity, and for the 24TiB drive, it is equal to 25934.3TB of storage capacity.
