iStor Networks iStor iS512 iSCSI Storage Array, Product Details
The iS512 iSCSI storage array is based on a next generation iSCSI RAID Storage System on a Chip. The 10 Gbit internal architecture enables full bandwidth to all eight host ports, and delivers exceptional performance with an amazing 890 MBytes/Sec of throughput.
Unlike all other iSCSI storage solutions, which are based on legacy architectures that rely on software RAID and a general purpose processor, the iS512 incorporates dedicated RAID hardware engines as well as hardware iSCSI acceleration and delivers in excess of 80,000 IOPS.
Designed to meet the most stringent reliability requirements, the iS512 includes battery backed cache and redundant hot swappable power supplies. Advanced RAID intelligence addresses potential hardware failures prior to their occurrence and provides the ability to migrate data off of suspect hard drives, thereby minimizing the probability of RAID rebuilds caused by failed drives.
Storage management and provisioning is as simple as choosing a capacity and RAID level: the iS512 does the rest. The iS512 protects your investment throughout the life of the product with the ability to mix RAID types, drives of different capacities and use all drive capacity regardless of the disparate drive sizes.
Dual controllers (Active/spare) provide high system uptime requirements.
Supports 4.8 TB capacity utilizing high performance 10K RPM SAS drives.
