Modular Design With Enterprise Reliability
The iQ2850 virtualized storage array delivers a scalable solution for a variety of business applications. The modular expansion approach enables IT administrators to quickly and cost-effectively add only the storage they need, when they need it to prevent over-provisioning.
Designed to meet the rigors of datacenter operations, the iQ2850 delivers enterprise reliability and availability through fully redundant, hot swappable components such as storage controllers, power supplies, cooling modules and disk drives with hot spares. Active-active controller technology ensures continuous data availability even in the event of controller or path failures.
Tiered Storage Support
The iQ2850 helps organizations to save storage costs by natively supporting tiered-storage. Support for both high performance FC drives and cost effective SATA drives, allows applications and data to be matched to the appropriate tier of storage thus maximizing the investment on storage infrastructure.
Ease of Use
The iQ2850 virtualized storage array is designed for rapid installation, simple management and seamless capacity expansion on demand. The virtualized storage arrays are typically installed, configured and serving hosts and applications in less than one hour. A simple management GUI provides a single interface to manage the entire solution. The centralized management tool constantly performs system health checks to ensure all components are fully functional.
