What stands out in the specification list is the number of storage options. You can install up to twelve hard drives in the front of the server and up to six hard drives/SSDs in the back.
To take off the top panel, you simply remove two screws on the top and some on the back. Then you simply grip the sides so your thumbs are at the indentations and push. The top panel should slide back about half an inch.
Here we have taken the top panel off so we can look at what the insides look like. All connections come pre-installed to the different hard drive bays, power, and fans.
This picture is at a different angle to get a better look at the motherboard area.
Now let us look at the front of the server, which is where you can find the twelve 3.5-inch SAS/SATA HDD (6Gb/s) drive bays.
Each of the twelve hard drive bays come with a locking tray that slides out so you can install or remove drives easily. Each tray can fit a 3.5-inch SAS/SATA HDD.
On the left side of the server, the status and power/reset button is built into the server handle. This status bar shows LAN activity, power status, and a caution LED.
Here we can see the general layout of the back of the server. The port used for IPMI is the first port on the left.
The back of the server comes with six 2.5-inch SATA HDD (6Gb/s) bays.
We can see the dual 800-watt 2U, 1+1 Redundant, Platinum Efficiency power supplies. These unlock by pressing the tab in and pulling the PSU out.
Now let us look at the middle fan bar. The server comes with three 80 x 38 mm PWM Hot-Swap Fans. These are not super high-speed fans and do not make a lot of noise.
Each of the fans can be removed by pressing in the tab and pulling up.
Now we are looking at the back plane for the front hard drive bays.
This is a close up of the rear left side of the 2.5-inch SATA HDD back plane. You can see how they connect to the motherboard.
Here we are looking at the rear right side. You can see the back plane that houses four 2.5-inch SATA HDD bays. You can see how they connect to the motherboard.
