The IBM® System Storage® DCS3700 consists of IBM System Storage DCS3700 storage subsystem and IBM System Storage DCS3700 expansion unit. The DCS3700 features the latest technologies, including 12 Gbps SAS and 16 Gbps Fibre Channel host interfaces, along with 6 and 12 Gbps SAS drives. The DCS3700 also features a 10 Gbps iSCSI host interface with an optional Performance Modules system.

DCS3700 supported drives include:
2TB, 3TB, 4TB, 6TB 6Gbps NL-SAS 3.5" 7200 rpm
300GB 15K rpm, 600GB, 900GB, 1.2TB SAS 2.5" 10K rpm
400GB, 800GB, 1.6TB SAS 2.5" SSD

Enabling T10 PI funtionality between the storage controller and disk drives helps to ensure data integrity at the drive level. T10 PI requires the use of PI capable 520 Bytes per Sector formatted disk drives. T10 PI capable drives can be used with or without the T10 PI function enabled and can be intermixed within a storage enclosure or across storage systems with non-PI formatted drives.
