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 SS truly offers a flexible and powerful solution that will increase your capacity, productivity and add unprecedented data protection.  

Powerful Storage Management  

The new RS16 SS offers multiple management options to match your workflow, and can be completely auto configured in minutes using the convenient rear LCD 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, iSCSI parameters (connection mode, ID, LUN mapping, etc.) SNMP features and security options. A network interface is available for remote web browser based management and includes the essential tools required to manage and monitor your RS16 SS.

Multi-Path I/O

Enhance Technology UltraStor™ RS Series Enterprise IntelliRAID 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 24×7, year round. Multipathing, 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. Multipathing can also provide load balancing of I/O traffic, thereby improving system and application performance.

Power & Cooling
ULTRASTOR™ keeps your workloads and critical applications running 24×7 without hardware failure interruption through the deployment of robotic power and cooling management, specifically its redundant hot-swappable power supplies (2) and fans (2). As described by the 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.”
