The EliteSTOR ES224X6+BSHP 24-Bay SAS/SATA RAID PCIe Rackmount Chassis from Sans Digital is a RAID storage rackmount chassis that offers high-capacity storage solutions with support for a 2.5" Small Form Factor (SFF). It is bundled with a high-performance dual core RAID controller card that offloads complicated RAID calculations from the computer or the enclosure to the dedicated RAID engine. High performance can be achieved with a lower cost of ownership compared to RAID embedded subsystems. 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 2.5" solid state drives or SAS/SATA hard drives to deliver superior read/write speeds that are crucial in performance-driven environments such as the video editing industry. The mini-SAS connection combines twenty-four hard drive connections into single cables, 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. The chassis supports both SAS and SATA drives, allowing users the option to choose between high performance and high capacity storage solutions.
Note: Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise-class hard drives when in use with any RAID controller applications. Standard desktop or green desktop drives may not be supported and may compromise RAID system stability and performance.
6G SAS and 6G SATA Technology
The rackmount chassis supports both 6G SAS and SATA drives.
Hard Drive Support
It supports standard height and 0.4" (12.5mm) height hard drives.
High Performance PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID Controller Card
The included PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID controller supports up to RAID 60. Dedicated dual core hardware RAID engines provide RAID calculation offloading from the main computer to the controller's processor, providing overall high performance.
With support for SATA 6G or SAS 6G hard drives and 24 Gb/s of data bandwidth, the rackmount chassis is capable of delivering over 1700 MB/s read and write performance.
Advance Features Included
The chassis supports advanced features, including 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 helps to extend 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 supports both SAS and SATA hard drives to meet the requirements of different applications with different price or performance characteristics. Cost-effective 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.
