Industry-leading reliability, ease-of-use, and scalability are the design criteria. The black finish and robust materials reassure customers that they purchased a product with longevity and value. Users see with a glance that they can store large volumes of data in a redundant, scalable system. Each disk drive is easy to access and quick to service, and the color-coded touch points communicate that the drives can be hot-swapped. Large air inlets are evidence that this product lowers customers’ cooling costs, and the curving front profile is inspired by the spinning disks inside.
