Nimble Capacity expansion options

Hello there,

as I understand, when configuring Nimble AF40 you can go with either 1 or 2 banks of 2.5 24SSD. What if I filled the storage only with 1 bank of say 92TB (24x3.84TB) initially, would I be able to order the second bank of SSDs later on and install it into the same head? Or should I order the expansion shelf and with it with that second bank?

Hello!

All Nimble AF systems are able to be populated with either 1 or 2 SSD banks on day 1. Any additional capacity banks added to a Nimble array once installed (AF or HF) are a non-disruptive operation and can be done by yourself within a few minutes very easily.

If you want to have a play around, check out the HPE Storage 3D Demo tool, where you can pull apart a Nimble array to see how it scales. Very useful to have!
