Hard-disk drives (HDDs)
Disk drive bays and HDDs used for log storage. By default, the M-600 ships with four HDDs installed in drive bays A1/A2 and B1/B2. You can install up to eight additional drives (four additional RAID 1 pairs) in the remaining drive bays (C1/C2, D1/D2, E1/E2, and F1-F2) to increase log storage capacity.
Each pair of drives are in a RAID 1 configuration. For example, A1-A2 is a RAID 1 pair and B1-B2 is a RAID 1 pair.
For details on storage capacity, refer to the Panorama Datasheet. For details on adding additional storage to the appliance, refer the Panorama Administrator’s Guide on the Technical Documentation Portal for the release version running on your appliance.
