iQStor Q-Renegade Model iQ160 iSCSI/NAS System Product Details
iQ-Renegade Multi-Protocol Storage System
Affordable and easy to use, the iQ-Renegade is a unified data storage system. Supporting both iSCSI and NAS protocols, the iQ-Renegade provides up to 32TB of storage capacity in a 3U 16-bay form factor. It's the ideal system for backup, archive and digital security applications.
Simplifying IT Administration with Multi-Protocol Storage
The iQ-Renegade is a network-based storage system designed to provide heterogeneous access
to iSCSI, CIFS, or NFS data sources. This multi-protocol flexibility enables the system to support
a broad range of business applications. With the iQ-Renegade, businesses are able to easily
support and combine iSCSI and NAS storage requirements into a single physical system.
Protecting Business Data with Remote Backup
The iQ-Renegade provides iSCSI local mirror and volume copy features out of the box. Built-in NAS remote backup is part of the standard offering and allows data files to be automatically backed up to another iQ-Renegade system across any distance thus minimizing disruptions or downtime for critical business operations.
Port Bonding and Multi-Path I/O for Flexibility and Reliability
The iQ-Renegade addresses high bandwidth requirement by bonding multiple Gigabit Ethernet ports into a single pipe. Multi-path support enhances performance and reliability through load balancing, active-passive operation and best path selection. The multi-path software and redundant physical path connections to hosts provide reliability by ensuring applications access to data in the event of path failure between host server and iQ-Renegade.
High Performance RAID for Productivity
The iQ-Renegade uses high performance CPUs for both the iSCSI/NAS engine and for hardware
RAID acceleration. The system supports online RAID level modification and background drive
initialization. Powerful CPUs enable multiple tasks to be performed at the same time, greatly reducing system administration time and enhancing productivity.
