General properties

Capacity per drive (nearline SAS)

4 TB or 6 TB SEDs

Number of disk drives (min/max)

108/180

Encryption

All disk drives are SEDs. When encryption is enabled, the data on the flash drives is also encrypted. XIV encryption requires an external key management solution, such as IBM Key Lifecycle Manager.
