Enhance Technology UltraStor RS Series Enterprise IntelliRAID Now Supports MicrosofMicrosoft Windows 2003 Servert Multipath I/O (MPIO) that integrates tightly with the Microsoft Windows family of products and their architectures. High reliance on the Internet and e-commerce means that organizations are increasingly requiring that their data be available 24x7, year round. Multipathing, the ability of a system to use more than one read/write path to a storage device, is a high availability solution that provides fault tolerance against single-point-of failure in hardware components. Multipathing can also provide load balancing of I/O traffic, thereby improving system and application performance.
Power & Cooling
UltraStor keeps your workloads and critical applications running 24x7 without hardware failure interruption through the deployment of robotic power and cooling management, specifically its redundant hot-swappable power supplies (2) and fans (2). As described by the testing engineer from hard drive manufacturer Western Digital Corporation's interoperability lab ". This system can compete side by side with some of the best systems that we have tested in our lab to date."
