The black EliteNAS EN850L+BXE 8U 48-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 dual Intel Westmere Xeon Quad-Core processor and 4GB DDR3 ECC memory. Designed with hardware RAID protection and quad 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 14 additional EliteSTOR SAS expander JBOD storage units, up to a maximum of 244 drives, providing a total of 732TB storage in a network sharing or iSCSI/FC SAN environment. With 144TB 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, quad 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.
