JStor-3 IDE 16-bay Fibre-Channel RAID Array
with MDF (Multiple Drives Failure) capabilities
Dual FC (Fibre-Channel) Host Interfaces

Key Benefits
Adding another dimension to fault-tolerance, JStor-4 IDE 16 bay fibre-channel RAID array with MDF (Multiple Drive Failure) delivers reliable RAID 6 data protection combined with the blazing performance of 2Gbit Fiber Channel host interfaces to support a wide variety of mission critical business applications. Engineered to meet stringent demands for continuous availability, JStor IDE 16 bay fibre-channel RAID array features a brand-new 64-bit RISC processor for blazingly fast parity calculation and I/O operations, completely cableless backplane-based design, and storage capacities reaching 6.5TB in one small 3U enclosure.

Low service and integration costs are assured by the JStor's cableless design, three redundant hot-swappable power supplies with three independent power inputs, turbo cooling fans, and embedded RAID controller. Three year warranty comes standard with every array and covers all components.

Versatility is in the heart of the JStor IDE 16bay fibre-channel RAID array. Indeed, it can be used as a desktop or be rackmounted into any standard 19" rack cabinet.

The JStor IDE 16bay fibre-channel RAID addresses many challenges present in datacenters and delivers unparalleled storage flexibility, higher levels of data availability, management and configuration simplicity, all while securing maximum investment protection to support future growth.

Advanced Features

Exclusive MDF (Multiple Drives Failure) technology (RAID 6) provides the highest level of data protection. Multiple simultaneous drive failures can be tolerated without downtime or data loss.

Exclusive RAIDm monitoring and notification software provides instant access to the status of the RAID Array and allows for 24x7 RAID monitoring and notification.

Redundant Flash Image provides an extra layer of protection against the firmware image corruption. If the primary firmware of the RAID controller becomes corrupted, the secondary firmware image will automatically be used.

Full 48-bit ATA addressing standard support allows for up to 144 petabytes capacity per drive to be utilized in the RAID array.

ASIC assisted parity for lightning-fast throughput.

SNMP supported.

RAID controller provides RAID 0, 0+1, 1, 3, 5, and RAID 6, Global Hot Spare Disk, Auto Rebuild, and up to 1GB of DDR ECC SDRAM-based data cache.

Intelligent IDE/ATA backplane design (uses no cables) allows "hot swapping" of disk canisters, power supplies, and fans for increased reliability, lower cost, and ease of maintenance.

Built-in management ethernet port provides easy access to the web-based GUI RAID Manager for configuration, management, and monitoring functions. E-mail event notification built in.

Completely user configurable via the front panel.

Online Parity Consistency verification feature insures RAID set integrity.
