Enhance ULTRASTOR RS16 FS 64-bit RAID architecture which maximizes the Serial Attach SCSI & Serial ATA disks throughput potential


SKU: RS16 FS Category:


Product Overview
The Enhance RS16 FS represents the pinnacle of hybrid I/O technology. UltraStor™ RS16 FS opens the door to the world of high performance computing by accepting both high performance SAS disks and high capacity 3Gb SATA disks with next generation 4Gb Fibre Channel Dual-port (FD) host interfaces. Embedded with MPIO support for both Windows and Mac applications, the RS16 FS addresses the challenges of high impact/high volume storage requirements, and drives data throughput over 600MB/sec offering possibilities for new level of applications. Being the most popular model within the advanced RS Series, RS16 FS offers dynamic data expansion through daisy-chaining four (4+) more optional RS16 JS JBOD units to form large RAID storage required by some data intensive applications, and continues the UltraStor™ tradition by delivering a solution that raises the bar in reliability, functionality, and performance.
ULTRASTOR™ FD 4Gb Reliability
MPIOThe RS16 FS supports various RAID levels, including multi-level RAID 30, 50, and 60. RS16 FS ensure the long-term data integrity and reliability with extensive utilities like disk cloning and disk scrubbing to proactively prevent performance degradation and data loss due to disk failure or latent bad sectors. UltraStor™ RS16 FS also supports Windows multi-path technology (MPIO) tolerating path failure while aggregating bandwidth of multiple FC connections for higher data availability and system performance.
ULTRASTOR™ FD 4Gb Versatility
With two 4Gb SFP Fibre ports, the RS16 FS provides increased reliability and functionality critical to a company’s IT infrastructure. UltraStor™ RS16 FS includes a cutting edge 64-bit RAID architecture which maximizes the Serial ATA disk throughput potential. Making the system an ideal solution for professional storage applications such as high-speed disk-to-disk backup, image processing, near-line storage, data center, database server, media & asset management library and shared SAN network. Dynamic on-line RAID expansion allows additional capacity to be added without total system downtime, increasing your department’s productivity. RS16 FS’s easy sharing and better flexibility allows different RAID configurations to be deployed independently on single disk group so that the storage resources can be utilized efficiently. It also provides comprehensive tools to online change RAID attributes and capacity to manage free space and to conduct array roaming.

Appliance-based Storage
UltraStor™ is a host independent 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™ series is designed to easily integrate into elaborate SAN fabrics or point-to-point centralized storage. UltraStor™ RS16 FS truly offers a flexible and powerful solution that will increase your capacity, productivity and add unprecedented data protection.
Powerful Storage Management
The RS16 FS offers multiple management options to match your workflow from a variety of user interfaces including command line over local console and secure shell (SSH) LCD panel, and web-based graphical user interface. UltraStor™ RS16 FS can be completely auto configured in minutes using the convenient front control panel, and monitored or reconfigured through a remote connection. A comprehensive menu screen facilitates the setup process and lets users reconfigure the system as storage needs change. An RS232 interface gives users access to advanced features such as multiple array settings, Fibre Channel parameters (connection mode, ID, LUN mapping, etc.), SNMP features and security options. Events are recorded on the controller and mail is sent out to notify the users without installing any software or agents. RAID reconfiguration and disk scrubbing can be scheduled or periodically executed.
