The Bosch DSX-N6D6X3-60AT DSA E-Series Expansion Unit (60 x 3TB) is a SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) interface-connected expansion unit designed for use with the DSA E-Series iSCSI disk arrays. This is a high-density 4U expansion unit with sixty 3.5”, 7.2 K, SAS, 3TB HDD enabled custom configurations. This high-performance solution designed with robust flexibility makes it a good fit for wide-ranging video surveillance requirements. Its balanced performance is designed for supporting high bandwidth and I/O intensive workloads. Fully redundant I/O paths, advanced protection features, and extensive diagnostic capabilities of this unit help deliver high levels of availability, integrity, and security.
This DSA E-Series expansion unit keeps your data safe and available with redundant hot-swappable power and fans, and offers protection from double-disk failure and single bit errors during RAID rebuilds with high-performance RAID 6. Its redundant components, automated path failover, and online administration keep organizations productive 24 x 7 x 365. Full SNMP support with MIB-II and NetApp custom MIBs are supported. In case of component failures, SNMP e-mail alert notifications will be generated. Additionally, an Event Monitor for sending alert notifications to a central Major Event Log is also available.
The NetApp SANtricity storage management software combines robustness and ease of use. Full-time storage administrators appreciate the extensive configuration flexibility, which allows optimal performance tuning and complete control over data placement. Part-time system administrators love the intuitive interface and wizards designed to simplify their tasks. With its dynamic capabilities, the SANtricity software supports on-the-fly expansion, reconfiguration, and maintenance without interrupting storage system I/O. SANtricity software is available as 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft OS installation package. Installable on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Clients, the SANtricity storage management software provides easy central management of all DSA E-Series arrays available within one network.
There is no additional software necessary to be installed on peripheral devices. In addition, the system provides a powerful Command Line Interface (CLI) which is fully remote accessible by SSH (Secure Shell). This unit offers per controller a serial console connector and 2 dedicated Ethernet management ports for management access and 2 x 10GB Ethernet iSCSI host ports. Each port must be configured with a separate IP address; the 2 iSCSI host ports have separate access paths to the storage system and represent an individual iSCSI target each.
Note: With Bosch iSCSI Recording Solution, the use of only one port per controller is currently supported. DSA E-Series in Simplex Controller configuration are only supported by BVIP Firmware 5.52 and later and VRM 2.30 and later. DSA E-Series in Dual Simplex Controller configuration are only supported by BVIP Firmware 5.60 and later and VRM 3.0 and later.
