Notes:
* The Total Efficiency Guarantee of up to 7:1 for the VSP F350, F370, F700 and F900 modelscovers savings from data de-duplication, compression, thin provisioning and snapshots.
** RAID 1 selection mirrors blocks across two drives and then creates a striped set across multipledrive pairs. This is commonly referred to as RAID 1+0.

1MB = 1,000,000 bytes
1MiB = 1,048,576 bytes
SFF = small form factor, LFF = large form factor
SAS = serial attached SCSI, SSD = solid state disk, FMD = flash module drive,
FC = Fibre Channel, iSCSI = Internet Small Computer Systems Interface, FCoE = Fibre Channelover Ethernet, FICON = Fibre Connection
