arrow High-availability RAID Platform

The UltraStor™ DS316F8 RAID storage platform combines a state-of-the-art Dual-active RAID design with the flexibility of a modularized hardware architecture that offers a new level of data protection, availability and ease of use. An active-active, dual 8G Fibre Channel controller system design provides users with continuous availability of critical data at full bandwidth. In addition to the DS316F8 dual RAID controllers, the dual redundant power supplies and cooling modules are hot-swappable and can be replaced easily on the field, providing the ultimate redundancy and reliability for mission critical and data intensive applications to meet the storage requirements across the most demanding environments.

arrow High-performance & SAN-ready 8G Fibre Channel

Featuring eight (Dual Controller) high-speed 8Gb/s SFP+ optical interfaces with fully support of multi-path configuration, the UltraStor DS316F8 delivers an excess of 1800 MB/s in RAID-5 protection mode. Supporting both SAN attached network configurations for real-time file-sharing (requires 3rd. party SAN software) as well as direct-attached configurations for high performance demanded applications. Certified with VMware ESXi 5, the new UltraStor DS316F8 empowers your SAN with the speed and reliability needed for today’s virtualized IT infrastructures, and high-resolution post production workflows.
