The DS460FS 256TB (64 x 4TB) 64-Bay SAS RAID Array with Dual Controllers from Proavio is designed for mission-critical media applications. With the ability to support workflows ranging from HD to 4K, the DS460FS is a well suited choice for media formats such as DPX, RED R3D, ARRIRAW, Arri Alexa, uncompressed HD, DSLR RAW, and more.
Built with a 4U rackmount form factor, the DS460FS has a dual-active, 16 Gb/s Fibre controller and a total storage capacity of 256TB, made up of 64 x 4TB 3.5" 7200 rpm SAS 6 Gb/s drives. The system is further supported by the 16GB (2 x 8GB) of RAM. While working in RAID 5 mode, it is possible to achieve data transfer rates of up to 4,000 MB/s. For those who need to expand their system's storage, storage can be scaled up to 1.4PB using Enterprise SAS technology using a dual-port SAS 6 Gb/s expansion and JBOD expansion nodes.
This storage array comes equipped with redundant hot-swappable modules that offer power and cooling with dual power supplies and smart cooling fans. This feature provides redundancy and reliability for the mission-critical and intensive data applications. In addition to the modules, this array is compatible with Thunderbolt-to-FC bridging technologies to add support for both Fibre and Thunderbolt users. This array also supports SAN network configurations such as FibreJet, MetaSAN, SANmp, Stornext, and Xsan. These features help provide real-time file sharing in IT infrastructures as well as post-production workflows.
The DS460FS operates using 100~240 VAC and 12~6A at 47-63 Hz (per module). It is compatible with Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2012, Mac OS, Linux, and VMWare ESX operating systems. It is also VMware VSphere 5 certified.
