Up to 1024TB (calculation based on 8TB SAS drives) of pooled storage is possible by connecting to 7 x EJ1600 JBOD Expansion Chassis.
Both models can be configured for RAID 0/1/5/6/5+ spare, and JBOD with online RAID capacity expansion and RAID level migration.
Equipped with a 800-MHz CPU and 512-MB RAM, the four-bay Disk Station DS408 is capable of housing up to 4 TB of storage in a range of disk configurations, including basic, JBOD, and RAID 0, 1 and 5.
For maximum flexibility it can be configured for RAID 5 (default), 0, 1, 1+0 and JBOD modes and also allows for hot swapping of hard drives.
The BroadFlex-3800 can accommodate up to 32 intermediate frequency analog signals which can be recorded to two high-density, ultra-compact JBOD storage units.
When ordered with the on-board PCI Express SATA controller, the unit integrates with major operating systems to provide additional storage capacity in JBOD or software RAID configurations.
Customers might choose to have one JBOD with 5 SAS SFF drives on one RAID set running mission critical applications, while 5 SFF SATA drives are in the same JBOD storing reference data.
Storage options include Fibre Channel, JBOD and HP StorageWorks disc arrays.
"The ability to extend netBoot/i into Fibre Channel, SCSI, iSCSI and JBOD storage infrastructures by using SANRAD's V-Switch allows our customers to use netBoot/i in a wider range of enterprise applications," said Carl Foggin, Director of Business Development for emBoot.
Featuring high-speed 150MB/s dual channel connections to Serial ATA Hard Drives while retaining support for up to four Parallel ATA-133 devices, the VIA VT237 combines optimum data transfer rates and maximized data integrity wit h easy installation and manageability through V-RAID, supporting multiple RAID Level 0, RAID Level 1, RAID Level 0+1 (where support for two additional Serial ATA drives has been added through the integration of the VIA SATAlite interface), and JBOD configurations.
The MDR can use either fibre channel Jbod or Raid systems as a storage device, and the included software contains essential striping algorithms necessary to work with low-cost Jbods--distributing the data through an advanced buffering system to several disks concurrently to sustain the high total transfer rates required by the aforementioned applications.
