The EliteSTOR ES316X6+BSHP 16-Bay 6G SAS/SATA RAID PCIe 2.0 x8 Rackmount from Sans Digital is bundled with a dual-core RAID controller card that offloads complicated RAID calculations from the computer or the enclosure to the dedicated RAID engine. RAID setup and maintenance can be controlled via built-in web browser interfaces, and the unit supports e-mail notifications and SNMP trap. Utilizing high-bandwidth 2400 MB/s mini-SAS (SFF-8088) cabling, the rackmount chassis supports SAS or SATA hard drives to deliver superior read and write speeds that are crucial in performance-driven environments such as the video editing industry.
The mini-SAS connection combines sixteen hard drive connections into a single cable, reducing possible points of failures while preserving uninterrupted data transfer. A built-in SAS expansion port enables the system to connect up to 5 units or 120 hard disk drives daisy-chained together. System status information such as the hard drive, power supply, and cooling fan status are provided by the LED. All necessary hardware comes standard, including the mini-SAS cable, hard drive tray modules, and built-in mounting rail.
Supports 6G SAS and 6G SATA Technology
The rackmount chassis supports both 6G SAS and SATA drives.
PCIe 2.0 x8 Dual Core RAID Controller Card
It includes a PCIe 2.0 x8 dual-core RAID controller card that supports up to RAID 60. Dedicated hardware RAID engines offload RAID calculation from the main computer to the controller's processors, providing overall high performance.
With support for SATA/SAS 6G hard drives as well as 24 Gb/s of data bandwidth, the chassis is capable of delivering over 1000 MB/s read and write performance.
Additional Features Included
The rackmount chassis comes with additional features such as hot-spare hard drive, auto-rebuilding, online RAID migration, and online capacity expansion.
Web-Based GUI for Management and Monitoring
Built-in web-based GUI for setup and monitoring allows management of the RAID status using a web browser. Detailed event information is saved in an event log and critical events can be e-mailed using SMTP. SNMP trap is also supported. All management and monitoring can be performed on any web browser with remote monitoring.
Built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up extends the life/duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
Up to 5 enclosures or 120 hard drives can be daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
The rackmount chassis supports both SAS (Serial SCSI) and SATA hard drives to meet the requirements of different applications. SATA drives can be used for capacity-oriented storage such as disk-to-disk backup, data archiving, and digital video editing. Alternatively, enterprise-level SAS drives can be employed for I/O intensive applications such as transactional databases.
