arrow Expand as you grow

Utilizing sixteen (16) hot-swappable disk trays, the ES3160P4 can host up to 48TB of capacity. However, the storage capabilities don’t stop there. Unlike many storage systems, the ES3160P4 can easily grow far beyond the “limitations” of its drive capacity. Each ES3160P4 system can also be expanded with additional RAID protected data storage of up to 192TB (Raw) with 3 x ES3160JS SAS interface JBOD storage systems.

Professional Management

arrow Professional Management

Managing a ES3160P4 storage system is easy. With its cross platform user friendly GUI management, it’s easy to configure and administer the ES3160P4. Its web-based GUI interface helps manage, monitor and control the system, and even its expansion units via a standard web browser anywhere at anytime and can be setup to receive real time system failure notification in Email, with no additional software is needed.

arrow Energy-Efficient

The ES3160P4 equips with 80-Plus 500W dual redundant power supply to keep your workloads and critical applications running without hardware failure interruption and ensure system reliability and data availability.
