HPE’s D2000 Enclosures offer economical modular solutions to simplify capacity expansion in earlier HPE ProLiant and Integrity server and blade environments. In addition to directly attaching to supported servers, the D2700 serves as the SFF enclosure to the some of the MSA array models. Total support within the D2000 series can grow as needed to up to 96 LFF drives or 200 SFF drives.
