Total raw capacity = 2600 x 500 + 2600 x 1000 = 3.9PB.

Note that there is no such thing as a 500GB FC drive (146GB, 300GB, 400GB, 450GB and 600GB only). There is also no such thing as a DMX that supports 5,200 drives. The biggest VMAX array supports 2,400 drives. EMC say a maximum of 2.36PB raw: http://australia.emc.com/collateral/hardware/comparison/emc-symmetrix-dmx.htm

Apologies for typo errors

Actually i meant 2400 drives for DMX3 and 2400 drives for DMX4
Now i came to know for DMX4 the raw capacity is <1.05pb

In similar fashion What would be the Raw capacity for DMX3 which has 2400 drives?

Duncan MeyersCommented:
Ummm. I don't remember what the DMX3 specs were (they're kind of old now), but it would be similar to the DMX4 at about 1PB.
