The A16U-G2430 subsystem is capable of RAID functionalities and performance that IT managers will find appropriate in a wide range of applications. The embedded ASIC400 XOR engine comes with the highest redundancy RAID6 functionality. With a dedicated XOR, dual PCI-X busses, adaptive I/O and caching policies, the subsystem easily sustains high throughput and is capable of handling I/Os of various characteristics. Throughout a decade of RAID storage design, Infortrend developed many configurable features that help adapt RAID storage to applications ranging from multimedia playback to small-block database transactions.
Featuring fast hardware and a wide variety of array configuration capabilities, the subsystem is ideal for applications that require the reliability of SCSI RAID, expansion options, or simply dedicated performance.
The 3U subsystem provides sixteen (16) hot-swappable drive bays for SATA-II disk drives, from which you can build high redundancy RAID6/5/3/10 or high performance RAID0 arrays. Our sophisticated firmware allows you to fully utilize the benefits of SATA-II disk drives such as the fast drive-level performance by the 8MB drive buffer and by the Native Command Queuing protocol.
