The EliteSTOR ES224X6+BHP 24-Bay 2.5" 6G SAS/SATA Rackmount RAID Chassis from Sans Digital is a high-capacity storage solution with a 2.5" small form factor (SFF). The RAID storage rackmount 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. It delivers superior performance with a lower cost of ownership compared to RAID embedded subsystems. RAID setup and maintenance can be controlled via a built-in web browser interface, and the unit supports e-mail notifications and SNMP trap.
Utilizing high-bandwidth 2400 MB/s mini-SAS (SFF-8088) cabling, the RAID storage rackmount 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 24 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. The RAID storage rackmount also supports SATA drives, providing users the option to choose between high-performance and high-capacity storage solutions.
6G SAS and SATA Technology
The RAID storage rackmount supports both 6G SAS and SATA drives.
Hard Drive Support
It supports standard hard drives as well as those up to 0.49" (12.50mm) in height.
High-Performance PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID Controller Card
The RAID storage rackmount includes a PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID controller that supports RAID levels up to 60. Dedicated dual core hardware RAID engines provide RAID calculation offloads from the main computer to the controller, 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 read and write performance of over 1700 MB/s.
Advanced Features Included
The rackmount chassis comes equipped with advanced 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 done using any web browser with remote monitoring.
Built-in staggering spin-up for hard drives during power up extends the life or duty cycle of the hard drives and power supply.
Up to 5 enclosures or up to 120 hard drives can be daisy-chained together for capacity expansion.
The rackmount chassis supports both SAS and SATA drives to meet the requirements of different applications with different 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.
Redundant Power Supply
Optional hot-swappable, redundant power is useful for protection against power failures. Power supply status can be easily monitored by the status LED and audible alarm alert.
