SG6060 and SG6060X appliances

Contributors netapp-pcelmer netapp-perveilerk

The StorageGRID SG6060 and SG6060X appliances each include a compute controller and a storage controller shelf that contains two storage controllers and 60 drives. Optionally, 60-drive expansion shelves can be added to both appliances. There are no specification or functional differences between the SG6060 and SG6060X except for the location of the interconnect ports on the storage controller.

SG6060 and SG6060X components

The SG6060 and SG660X appliances includes the following components:

Component Description

Compute controller

SG6000-CN controller, a one-rack unit (1U) server that includes:

  • 40 cores (80 threads)

  • 192 GB RAM

  • Up to 4 × 25 Gbps aggregate Ethernet bandwidth

  • 4 × 16 Gbps Fibre Channel (FC) interconnect

  • Baseboard management controller (BMC) that simplifies hardware management

  • Redundant power supplies

Storage controller shelf

E-Series E2860 controller shelf (storage array), a 4U shelf that includes:

  • Two E2800 series controllers (duplex configuration) to provide storage controller failover support

    • The SG6060 contains E2800A storage controllers

    • The SG6060X contains E2800B storage controllers

  • Five-drawer drive shelf that holds sixty 3.5-inch drives (2 solid-state drives, or SSDs, and 58 NL-SAS drives)

  • Redundant power supplies and fans

Optional: Storage expansion shelves

Note: Expansion shelves can be installed during initial deployment or added later.

E-Series DE460C enclosure, a 4U shelf that includes:

  • Two input/output modules (IOMs)

  • Five drawers, each holding 12 NL-SAS drives, for a total of 60 drives

  • Redundant power supplies and fans

Each SG6060 and SG6060X appliance can have one or two expansion shelves for a total of 180 drives.
