An optional drive cage is required to install more than 8 hard drives.
Available only when the second processor is configured.
Maximum resolution available via EXPRESSSCOPE Engine 3 remote console is 1280 x 1024 / 65K colors.
Noise emission was measured in accordance with ISO 7779. The actual value may vary by the operating
environment.
When mounting 1000 Watt power supply, the depth is 770 mm (30.31 in).

An optional drive cage is required to install more than 8 hard drives.
Available only when the second processor is configured.
Maximum resolution available via EXPRESSSCOPE Engine 3 remote console is 1280 x 1024 / 65K colors.
Noise emission was measured in accordance with ISO 7779. The actual value may vary by the operating
environment.
When mounting 1000 Watt power supply, the depth is 770 mm (30.31 in).
Operable up to 35°C (95°F) when Xeon processor E5-2690 v2 or E5-2697 v2 is configured with an added
optional drive cage.
For Windows Server 2012 R2 installation, download the driver kit from the following website and install it after OS

See the table below for the maximum memory size that you can actually use on your system.
The maximum available memory is less than the maximum physical memory supported by your system

Up to four hard drives can be installed in the Embedded SATA configuration.
Hot plug insertion/removal are not supported in the Embedded SATA configuration.
All drives within a RAID array should be of the same type, capacity and rotation speed.
Up to two kinds of drives selected from SAS 10K HDDs, SAS 15K HDDs, SATA HDDs and SAS SSDs
can be mixed in each drive cage.
To configure a large-capacity RAID array, it is recommended to configure in RAID 6 or RAID 60 in
order to minimize the risk of becoming multiple hard drives failure during the RAID rebuilding process.
It is recommended to set RAID array configuration drives less than eight in order to minimize the risk
of becoming multiple hard drives failure.

NOTE:

To configure a large-capacity RAID array, it is recommended to configure in RAID 6 or RAID 60 in
order to minimize the risk of becoming multiple hard drives failure during the RAID rebuilding process.

It is recommended to set RAID array configuration drives less than eight in order to minimize the risk
of becoming multiple hard drives failure.
