The RAID Machine I6424RM is truly innovative in that it provides multiple host interfaces to address the needs of different cost-effective RAID storage requirements. The 4 port iSCSI connections deliver high performance, high availability and scalable storage capacity with both direct iSCSI host and IP network connectivity. High transfer rates and more SATA disk channels provide a major benefit for those applications requiring cost-effective RAID solutions that take advantage of the low cost, high capacity SATA disk drives, especially the rapidly growing demand from VMware ESX server external storage, DVR markets and cold storage.
Maximum Host Interoperability
The I6424RM supports eSATA III, iSCSI and USB 3.0 which can work with different application requirements. The 6Gb/s eSATA host interface can be directly attached to host computers by the widely-adopted and low-cost eSATA interface without add-on cards and device drivers, such as a digital video recorder (DVR). As video management systems continue to trend toward IP, iSCSI RAID subsystems have become increasingly popular to provide massive storage capacity in a highly secure manner. The I6424RM is designed with 4 1Gb/s host ports for a cost-effective and shared storage solution with Link Aggregation (LACP, Trunking), Multi-Path IO (MPIO) and iSCSI Multiple Connection per Session (MC/S) support. The I6424RM uses the iSCSI protocol which allows system designers significant flexibility in determining placement of storage within a network as well as how the storage is allocated across multiple NVRs.
Unsurpassed Data Availability
The I6424RM RAID engine features a 1.2GHz storage processor and 2GB onboard DDR3-1200 SDRAM memory to offer high performance with the added advantage of central management and RAID protection. It supports hardware RAID 6 which allows two HDD failures without impacting the existing data and performance. Link aggregation combines Quad Gigabit Ethernet connections to increase data transfer past a single connector and provides redundancy in the event of a failed connection.
Easy RAID Management
Configuration and monitoring can be done either through the LCD control panel, RS232 serial port or the Ethernet port.
