Infortrend 2U 12-bay RAID, Single controller with 256MB, ASIC 266, 2 x FC-4G SFP host ports Fibre to SATA System


SKU: ES A12F-G2422 Category:



Combining the high performance, reliability, and extensive connectivity of 4G Fibre Channel interfaces with the cost-effective SATA drive technology, these entry-level, SAN-ready subsystems provide clustering capabilities for DAS, Fibre Channel SAN, and are well suited for imaging and archiving or secondary storage.


  • FC-4G to SATA-II (3Gbps) single controller RAID subsystem
  • RAID5 configuration end-to-end I/O performance: Sequential read:545 MB/sec, Sequential write:345 MB/sec
  • Dual-speed fans to reduce noise
  • 2U chassis providing up to 8TB or 12TB of storge capacity
  • SATA NCQ support



  • Multiple arrays configurable with dedicated or global hot spares
  • RAID levels supported: RAID 0, 1 (0+1), 3, 5, 10, 30, 50, and NRAID
  • Online expansion by:

    • Adding new drives
    • Copying and replacing drives with drives of larger capacity

  • Automatic background rebuildsConfigurable stripe size and write policy per arrayIntelligent drive handling: In degraded mode: skips irreparable blocks to continue rebuild, In normal operation: data-block verification and repair 

Host Interface

  • Two (2) FC-4G through two (2) SFP host ports
  • Concurrent I/O commands
  • Tagged command queuing up to 256
  • Variable stripe size per logical drive
  • Optimization setting for random or sequential I/Os

Drive Interface

  • Twelve (12) 3Gbps SATA-II (3Gbps) , hot-swappable drive trays that accommodate 1-inch pitch, 3.5-inch SATA-I or SATA-II (3Gbps) disk drives
  • Automatic bad-sector reassignment
  • Dedicated bandwidth to each connected drive
