Sans Digital AccuSTOR AS108XP 1U 8 Bay RAID Storage System Debuts
Sans Digital, a leading provider of high performance storage subsystems, is introducing the AccuSTOR AS108XP, a 1U 8 bay rackmount RAID storage with support for 2.5" small form factor SATA, SAS or SSD. Based on the award winning AS108X, the AS108XP comes standard with the RR2722 6G PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID controller card, supporting RAID 0/1/1+0/5 through dual channel mini-SAS host interface with over 650MB/s read write performance.
SAS hard drives provide enterprise-level performance and features suitable for mission critical applications while SATA hard drives allow high capacity for nearline storage with affordable pricing. SSD drives provide lower power consumption and higher performance using memory module instead of spinning disk. Using either SAS, SATA or SSD hard drives, the Sans Digital AS108XP are ready for your application or storage needs in one single rackmount configuration. The bundled SAS and SATA RR2722 6G PCIe 2.0 x8 RAID controller is powered by a dedicated RAID processor, providing performance in excess of 650MB/s* with hot-spare functionality to immediately re-build data on the lost hard disk automatically.
In addition to the high performance and rich feature set, the AS108XP support a wide range of computer operating systems including Windows, MAC and Linux. The AS108XP is also supported by VMware for use as a centralized storage for ESX/ESXi server or by the virtual machines in VMware ESX/ESXi 4.1. Enterprise-like features such as online RAID level migration, online RAID expansion, RAID roaming and Email notification for critical errors/events are also included via an user-friendly web GUI based management. AS108XP provide a blazing fast data transfer speed (over 650MB/s) highly suitable for the video editing, critical server database or data backup applications with a very affordable listed price of $939.
"Supporting both enterprise SAS and high capacity SATA hard drives provides flexibility to our customers," said Stanley Chan, Director of Business Develop of Sans Digital. "With the 6Gbps SAS and SATA RAID controller, the AS108XP provides a feature-rich high performance storage system ready for your most demanding data storage application."
