Sans Digital EN316L+BXE overview

  • 1Description

The black EliteNAS EN316L+BXE 3U 16-Bay NAS + iSCSI + FC Target Enclosure is a comprehensive feature-dense unified/hybrid storage rackmount equipped with a 4.8 GT/s Quick Path Interconnect Intel Westmere Xeon Quad-Core processor and 4GB DDR3 ECC memory. Designed with hardware RAID protection and dual Gigabit Ethernet, this rackmount is capable of unlimited clients with network share and supports IP SAN/Fibre Channel SAN storage. The built-in SAS expander feature allows expansion of up to 7 additional EliteSTOR SAS expander JBOD storage units, up to a maximum of 120 drives, providing a total of 360TB storage in a network sharing or iSCSI/FC SAN environment. With 48TB in a single rackmount, this enclosure is capable of fulfilling the most demanding storage needs.

This device is built with simple setup and maintenance features. An installation wizard for easy implementation, convenient web-based management for local or remote configuration, dual 10/100/1000 network support for teaming or redundant networking, and hardware RAID support for data storage make the EliteNAS a simple and trouble-free unit. Dedicated 1200 MHz processor RAID engines support online migration and expansion while offloading complex RAID calculations to improve overall performance. The enclosure supports high-performance SAS hard drives or high capacity, low cost SATA hard drives. In addition, it supports 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 30, 50, and 60 RAID levels for advanced data protection in a large number of hard drive deployments.

The rackmount is bundled with additional advanced features, such as iSCSI target support for iSCSI applications, iSCSI initiator support for easy future expansion, NAS-to-NAS folder replication, scheduled or on-demand volume snapshot, and local tape backup support. To take advantage of centralized storage for all virtual machines in VMware ESX or Vsphere, this device can be used as a focal storage point for the VMWare ESX or ESXi server hosting multiple virtual machines. You can utilize it as an iSCSI target storage system for the VMware ESX/ESXi server, making it ready for your VMware storage virtualization needs. Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization environment is also supported. With the support of SPC-3, iSCSI can be used in Microsoft Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 clustering environment for high-availability applications. A 10Gb Ethernet network interface controller card is supported for 10Gb networking. With 10 times faster bandwidth compared to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet, the 10Gb network interface controller provides high performance solutions when needed.

Features remote monitoring and remote email notifications
Auto email notification for pre-defined events
Supports storage quota assignment to group or to individual users, as well as warning when approaching the quota limit
Volume snapshots supported: Supports multiple snapshots for 'point-in-time" user data image against accidental user file deletion and data corruption or virus attack. Snapshot can be scheduled or on-demand
Built-in iSCSI initiator: A new NAS acts as an iSCSI target; you can connect it to the existing NAS as part of the local storage
Supports local folder creation under each root network share
Multi-level sub-folders supported
Network share can be created based on volume or on sub-folder

NAS Administration

A NAS discovery tool, NAS Finder, automatically discovers any and all NAS units in the local network, allowing administrators to manually add an entry for remote NAS unit over the Internet/VPN/WAN
Monitors NAS resource utilization status via the web-based GUI
Monitors on-line users and folders being accessed via the web-based GUI
System log can be downloaded and emailed to technical support personnel for further troubleshooting
Supports system configuration for backup and restore functions

iSCSI Feature

iSCSI target function allows a certain portion of the storage to be partitioned as iSCSI volume and assigned to a specific host computer, appearing as a local disk to that host computer
Provides block-level services (iSCSI) and file services (NAS) in a unified storage system
Built-in iSCSI initiator function allows the NAS to mount remote iSCSI target volume as its local physical storage and expand its storage capacity
A combination of iSCSI target and initiator support between multiple NAS units can be used as one of the methods to perform multiple NAS aggregation for storage expansion
Built-in snapshot supports iSCSI volumes
iSCSI volume supports Microsoft Server 2008 R2 Failover Clustering (SPC-3) and VMware ESX/ESXi Server
