Online RAID Capacity Expansion
The storage capacity of a RAID configuration can be expanded by replacing the hard drives with larger ones. All the data will be kept and seamlessly moved to the newly installed hard drives. There is no need to turn off the server during the process
Online RAID Level Migration
Upgrade the disk configuration to higher RAID level with the data retained without turning off the server
S.M.A.R.T. & Advanced HDD Health Scanning (HHS)

Two operating systems are built on the DOM for system booting alternatively upon every system startup. When one fails, the other one for system startup and the failed OS is recoverable from the other healthy OS

Network Services
