Buy what you need now, add more needed. The FAStT600 is a scalable storage server designed to allow you to build on your initial investment. Simply upgrade, not replace as your needs increase. The FAStT600 scales from 72 GB to over 6TB of storage using FAStT EXP700 expansion enclosures. Each expansion enclosure supports up to 14 Fiber Channel disk drives. Moreover, you can select the appropriate RAID level (from RAID levels 0, 1, 3, 5, and 10) to match an application or suit particular needs, helping you to extend and leverage investments now and in the future.
