Dell PowerVault 220S is an expandable disk storage array capable of housing up to fourteen 3.5-inch disk drives in a single 3U rack enclosure.

Dell PowerVault 220S storage enclosures are the ideal choice for disk expansion on PowerEdge servers. The disk expansion enclosures can be attached to one server in a 14-drive joined-bus configuration; to one or two servers in a split-bus configuration where each bus controls seven drives; or, to two servers with 13 drives as part of a cluster configuration.


Dell PowerVault 220S systems are reliable, flexible, external SCSI expansion enclosures designed to support multiple Dell storage environments and RAID configurations. Each system offers maximized drive-spindle count, hot-plug hard drives, optional redundant power, redundant cooling, rackmount capability, systems management features, and a modular design for easy upgrades. Most major components, including hard drives and power supply/cooling modules are hot-pluggable and can be removed and replaced easily. The enclosure management module (EMM), split-bus module, and SCSI terminator card are "warm-pluggable." This means they can be removed or inserted while the power is on, but all I/O activity has ceased

  • Designed and tested to work seamlessly with most Dell PowerEdge servers
  • Delivers exceptional SCSI performance bandwidth when coupled with the latest Dell RAID controllers based on PCI Express
  • Houses up to fourteen 1" U320 SCSI disk drives (available at 10,000 and 15,000 RPM speeds)
  • Stores up 4200GB of raw capacity when 300GB U320 SCSI disk drives are used
  • Convenient hot-pluggable disk drives, cooling units and power supplies
  • Enhanced protection or performance offered through RAID 0, 1, 5, as well as RAID 1/0, 5/0 (with PERC 4e RAID controllers)
  • 3U form factor for rack dense environments and tower (PowerVault 221S) form factor for non-rack environments
