Enhance Technology's new performance driven UltraStor RS series Enterprise SAS RAID system delivers over 800MB/sec speed to meet with data/transaction intensive applications. Utilizing point-to-point host / disk connectivity, the UltraStor RS8 SS offers Enterprise-grade fault tolerance solution and improved performance for applications that demand nothing short of superior reliability. UltraStor RS series is designed to accept both high reliability SAS disks and high capacity SATA disks, and is capable of dynamic storage expansion to 4x more enterprise RS16 JS JBOD storage sub-systems for a total of 80TB storage capacity.UltraStor™ Versatility
The high-performance ULTRASTOR™ RS8 SS is becoming the new standard for RAID protected storage which provides the most scalable performance and high level of storage reliability using the latest SAS architecture and RAID technologies. The ULTRASTOR™ RS8 SS provides up to eight (8) 15K SAS or 3Gbps SATA drives and features two SAS channels and one SAS expandable port. It is powered by a cutting edge 64-bit RAID engine with up to 2GB cache memory, which maximizes disk performance allowing for a broader range of storage possibilities. Built-in enterprise features such as Snapshot, N-way Mirror, RAID-6, & Web GUI management makes the new ULTRASTOR™ RS8 SS an ideal solution for server storage such as Microsoft Exchange & SQL Server or professional storage applications providing versatility critical to a company’s IT infrastructure. Dynamic on-line RAID volume expansion allows additional capacity to be added without total system downtime, increasing your department's productivity.Appliance-based Storage
ULTRASTOR™ RS8 SS is a host independent SAS RAID storage appliance which provides a transparent and driverless method of adding additional RAID protected storage to an existing IT infrastructure, regardless of your operating system or hardware. The ULTRASTOR™ RS8 SS series is designed to easily integrate into elaborate SAN fabrics or point-to-point centralized storage. ULTRASTOR™ RS8 SS truly offers a flexible and powerful solution that will increase your capacity, productivity and add unprecedented data protection. The RS8 SS is essential for video streaming process, nonlinear video editing, disk-to-disk backup, database pools, near-line storage, data centers, media & asset management libraries and shared SAN networks.Powerful Storage Management
Multi-Path I/OEnhance Technology UltraStor™ RS Series enterprise Intelli-SAS RAID now supports Microsoft 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. Multi-pathing, 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. Multi-pathing can also provide load balancing of I/O traffic, thereby improving system and application performance.
Power & CoolingULTRASTOR™ RS8 SS keeps your workloads and critical applications running 24x7 without hardware failure interruption through the deployment of intelligent and user friendly power and cooling management, specifically its redundant hot-swappable power supplies (2) and fans (3). As described by the chief 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."
