The AccuRAID AR442F8 4U 42-Bay SATA/SAS to Quad 8 Gb/s FC Rackmount from Sans Digital is a diskless rackmount designed for storage applications and accommodates up to 126TB (expandable up to 378TB) of storage space. The unit utilizes advanced Fibre technology when operating as Direct Attached Storage (DAS), and can be set up as a Storage Area Network (SAN) with the assistance of a Fibre Channel network switch. In addition, the quad Fibre Channel ports support clustering, so the unit can be accessed by multiple servers, ensuring continuous uptime in a production environment.
To overcome hardware failure, the rackmount has two redundant and hot-swappable power supplies and cooling fans. The Single controller or Active-Active redundant controllers (AR442F8R) allow further failure protection when needed. Internally, the rackmount supports up to RAID 60, with RAID monitoring, RAID notification, automatic failover, and automatic recovery. The built-in expansion port allows up to two additional JBOD units (AS424X6 or AS424X6R rackmount for redundant controller) with up to 126 bays or 378TB. The unit's built-in Ethernet port with web-based management console and SES management features provide instant access to the status of the RAID array and the enclosure to reduce downtime. The rackmount supports SAS drives, while SATA can be used with additional MUX board.
The rackmount is a 4U, 42-bay, 126TB Fibre Channel system, which is expandable up to 126 bays or 378TB with additional JBOD.
Redundant Active / Active-Failover RAID controllers provide extra redundancy and availability.
Modular designs of controllers, cooling fan, and power supply provide automatically failover and recovery.
Supports up to RAID 0, 1, 10, 3, 5, 6, 30, 50, and 60.
