Product care at Starline: C-Series from RAIDdeluxe fibers now with 32 Gbps

Category: News, Press

A 32 Gbps quad host port module was launched for RAIDdeluxe's rock-solid budget series. Single and dual controller models from the C series thus offer four and eight of the super-fast Fibre Channel ports.

The reliable workhorses from RAIDdeluxe have always been characterized by an excellent price-performance ratio. Where else can the inclined IT administrator find RAID systems in the entry-level sector that are very easy to configure, solidly built and can transmit 2,500 megabytes per second? This is not the only reason why Starline is obliged to keep its own brand up to date.

With the new quad host port in 32 Gbps Fibre Channel technology, the popular RAID systems can now also be cost-effectively integrated into modern networks. For topologies in 16 Gbps technology there is no disadvantage, however, as downward compatibility is guaranteed.

The upgrade concerns new devices with 12 (2U), 16 (3U) and 24 LFF (4U) as well as 24 SFF (2U) drive bays from the RAIDdeluxe C series. With a built-in single controller, they offer four 32 Gbps ports - with a dual controller eight. Each RAID system has an expansion port that allows it to expand to a total of up to 512 drives via JBOD. Due to the 12 Gbps SAS technology used on the drive side, the stable storage systems can be equipped with either SAS or SATA drives. HDDs or SSDs can be used as required.


As an alternative to the Fibre Channel version, Starline also offers the C-Series in SAS and iSCSI host configurations. By the way, all RAIDdeluxe's FC systems have been certified for VMware so far. Certification for the new 32 Gbps hostboards coming soon.



The RAIDdeluxe series with twelve drive bays starts at Starline from 3,400 Euro. Further information on the C-Series can be found in the data sheet. High-resolution pictures can be found here.
