*CMD - Cable Management Duct. optional.
**2 This is X2-R value. For X2-S weight, subtract 8.5Kg.
***Cluster can be configured to have only iSCSI connections and no FC.
****Usable capacity is the amount of unique, non-compressible data that can be written into the array.
*****Effective capacity includes the benefits of thin provisioning, inline global deduplication, inline compression, and spaceefficient copies. Datasheet numbers are a representative example at 6:1 and will vary based on each customer’s specific application environment and use of the XtremIO array.
