As the demands for capacity expansion of digital media continues to explode, IT infrastructures and its growing complexities have become increasingly difficult to manage. With no end in sight of this storage boom, IT administrators are faced with finding a robust storage expansion platform to serve as a building block to provide high-availability, flexibility and energy-efficiency in a cost effective package that meets their application demands.
Delivering a reliable enterprise-level storage architecture
The VTrak Jx30 series 6G SAS subsystems deliver a high performance SAS solution with advanced enterprise level reliability and functionality. Delivered in a Storage Bridge Bay (SBB) 2.0 compliant package, the Jx30 series offers the full redundancy that is expected of an enterprise solution. Dual active-active JBOD I/O modules allow for redundant data paths to ensure data availability while dual power supplies and cooling fans are in place to minimize downtime and any disruption to business continuity.
6G SAS performance
Providing up to 24Gb/s of bandwidth over the external multilane 6G SAS host interface, the VTrak Jx30 series allows storage applications to access their data at blistering speeds. The 6G SAS architecture paves the way for immense available bandwidth to support the flood of unstructured data now flowing across networks today. Fully backward compatible with 3G SAS/SATA devices, users have the ability to deploy 3G and 6G SAS/SATA hard drives and solid state devices (SSD) in the Jx30 series.
Promise cares about the environment. VTrak products utilize environmentally friendly production methods and materials as well as a high-efficiency design that saves energy. The VTrak Jx30 series products improve total cost of ownership by conserving power, reducing heat output and improving cooling costs. The internal 6G SAS expander-based architecture also allows for transparent access to each drive, enabling full utilization of the power management features built into modern hard drives.
