Features: Benfits:

18 Drive Capacity Populate with up to 18 SAS, SATA, or SSD drives to meet varying needs

Virtual Computing Environment Ready High speed SAS and SSD drives can be mixed to deliver performance to transactional applications or virtual hosts

Active Drawer Technology™ Allows one person to easily access hot-swappable disks and fans, in any of the two sliding drawers, which remain operational when opened.

High Availability Can be configured so there is no single-point-of-failure between the servers and storage system, or within the storage system. All power, fans, disks and I/O ports are fully redundant.

Active / Active Both controllers service storage requests, delivering twice the performance of the active/passive architecture offered by others.

Energy Savings AutoMAID is the storage industry's most sophisticated power management system, delivering delivers up to 85% energy savings. When a disk group is not accessed for a specified time period, it can automatically be put into a lower power-consuming state. No changes to applications or manual intervention is required to get the benefits of AutoMAID level 4.

Anti-Vibration Design Hard drives are mounted so that all disks are not spinning in the same direction. In addition, the anti-vibration design of the chassis provides unprecedented hard drive MTBFs.

Cool Drive Technology The high density chassis is specially designed for uniform airflow that ensures optimal thermal operation. The hot-swappable fans in the front and rear of the active drawers allow proper push/pull airflow.

Fibre Channel and iSCSI SAN Connectivity Each controller provides two 8Gb Fibre Channel ports and two 1Gb iSCSI connections – all four ports can be used simultaneously in SAN or direct-attached applications to support multiple workloads.

Easy Administration A built-in Web server utilizes the dedicated 100Mb/s Ethernet port to deliver a management GUI that sets the gold standard for ease-of-use.

2GB Battery-backed Cache per Controller The two RISC engines on each controller share a 2GB high speed cache which is supplied with enough battery power to permit it to be saved to flash memory in the event of a sudden loss of power.

Hardware RAID Supports RAID 0, 1, 1+0, 4, 5 and 6 using two dedicated hardware RAID engines per controller. RAID6 protects against the failure of two drives in a RAID set.

Automatic RAID Set Maintenance In the event of a drive failure, spare drives are automatically added to a RAID set and a RAID set rebuild is run all without any manual intervention being required. Administrators can receive email alerts, SNMP alerts or monitor the storage system's health remotely.

Flexible Storage Configuration Supports multiple RAID sets and multiple volumes per set with full LUN security and up to 254 LUNS per system.

Redundant Power Dual redundant 120V power supplies

Expansion Expand with E60X for up to 60 additional SSD, SAS, or SATA drives

Rack Unit fits into 2U of a standard rack. Cable control is internal to the storage system's two active drawers.
