The EliteSTOR ES424X6+BSHP 4U 24-Bay 6G SAS/SATA RAID PCIe 2.0 Rackmount from Sans Digital is a storage rackmount that offers high capacity storage solutions. 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, this rackmount supports SAS or 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 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. This JBOD storage enclosure supports both SAS and SATA drives, allowing users the option to choose between high performance and high capacity storage solutions.
Supports 6G SAS and 6G SATA Technology
This JBOD storage enclosure supports both 6G SAS and SATA drives.
High Performance PCIe 2.0 x 8 RAID Controller Card
The included PCIe 2.0 x 8 dual core RAID controller supports up to RAID 60. Dedicated hardware RAID engines offload RAID calculations 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 is capable of delivering over 1700 MB/s read and write performance.
Advanced Features Included
The rackmount supports advanced features, including hot-spare hard drive, auto-rebuilding, online RAID migration, and online capacity expansion.
Web-Based GUI for Management and Monitoring
The 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.
The 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 supports both SAS (Serial SCSI) and SATA hard drives to meet the requirements of different applications with different price/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.
