Sans Digital, a leading provider of high performance storage subsystems, is introducing a new ultra high capacity EN872L+BXE, an 8U 72-bay rackmount storage supporting up to 216TB of total disk raw capacity for both network sharing and iSCSI connectivity. Based on the existing popular EliteNAS series that ranges from 1U 4-bay to 8U 50-bay rackmount, the EN872L+BXE provides the same flexibility of supporting NAS and iSCSI target with an increased storage capacity by providing 72 hard drives in one single rackmount unit.
Information technology environment today often consists of computer using different operation systems such as PC, Mac or Linux. The EliteNAS EN872L+BXE, is a perfect choice when sharing information among different network clients. The iSCSI functionality allows the EN872L+BXE to act as a direct attached storage in an IP network enabling server storage expansion and virtual machine via VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V. To maintain optimal performance, the EN872L+BXE utilizes the latest Intel Xeon processor Dual Quad-Core CPU and has four built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports with a 10G networking upgrade option. Utilizing three 1200MHz RAID processors, hard drive failures are protected by RAID 1, 3, 5, 6, 10 30, 50 and 60. The built-in NAS-to-NAS folder replication and snapshot feature allows simple data backup.
Based on the same platform as the existing EliteNAS series, the EN872L+BXE provides 72 hard drive bays in one single 8U rackmount format. The unique physical structure of having 48 HDD bays in the front and 24 bays in the rear allows a total 72 bays in one single 8U form factor while providing sufficient cooling for the all the HDDs. Supporting the latest 3TB SATA and SAS hard drives, the EN872L+BXE allows up to 216TB in total raw storage capacity, making it the highest capacity NAS storage unit in the EliteNAS series. Designed with three built-in three expansion port, the EN872L+BXE is capable of expanding up to 360 drives or 21 more EliteSTOR JBOD units for a maximum of 1080TB (1.08PetaByte) in total storage capacity.
In addition to its large storage capacity, the EliteNAS EN872L+BXE come standard with enterprise redundancy features for maximum data protection. The built-in event log and e-mail notification record critical system information and allow real-time troubleshooting alerts. With four hot-swappable redundant power supplies, virus resistant OS, and SSD-like disk-on-module, the EN872L+BXE is designed to operate 24x7 with minimum system down time. Server fail-over mirroring is also available upon request. "The EliteNAS series has been proven successful in providing best performance and value as a unified storage for today's complex network environment," said Grandy Chen, President of Sans Digital. "The EN872L+BXE can be easily integrates into any corporate networks with minimum effort while providing maximum data capacity (216TB Raw) with great performance making it the most viable option for the ultra high capacity enterprise storage solution today."
