With increasing demands on storage infrastructure complexity, IT administrators are constantly looking to gain an edge on performance and capacity. The 24-bay Promise Technology VTrak Ex30F is coupled with high-speed 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel host connectivity, support for 6 Gb/s SAS and SATA disks, and a next-generation embedded storage I/O processing platform that delivers enhanced performance while providing a reliable, flexible, and easy to manage RAID storage system.

As performance needs grow, the Promise Technology VTrak Ex30F is designed with the embedded, high-performance Intel Xeon processor C5500/C3500 series to keep pace with those demands. Paired with quad 8 Gb/s FC ports per controller and support for 6 Gb/s SAS and SATA hard disk drives and SSDs, the VTrak Ex30F delivers high performance. The Ex30F offers the full redundancy that is expected of an enterprise solution. Dual active-active controller modules with cache mirroring over a high-speed PCIe Gen 2 link allow for redundant data paths to ensure data availability while dual power supplies/cooling units are in place to minimize downtime and any disruption to business continuity.

This VTrak product utilizes environmentally friendly production methods and materials and is designed with efficiency in mind. Powered by an 80Plus certified power supply that offers up to 85% power efficiency, it improves total cost of ownership by conserving power, reducing heat output, and improving cooling costs. Additionally, the GreenRAID story includes advanced power management support for hard disk drives providing up to 65% energy savings.
