Dynamic Network Factory Announces Enterprise 16000 Using Serial ATA Technology

Cost-Effective SATA Arrays Provide Mass Storage at Affordable Prices

Hayward, CA, Jul. 24, 2003 -- Dynamic Network Factory announced the ENTERPRISE 16000 SERIAL ATA RAID today. This 3U subsystem integrates the performance and cost benefits of Serial ATA with the connectivity and existing user base of SCSI. The ENTERPRISE 16000 SERIAL ATA RAID is equipped with a Serial ATA-to-Ultra160 SCSI RAID controller to offer fault-tolerant data protection with capacities of 576GB to 4TB.

ENTERPRISE 16000 SERIAL ATA RAID arrays are intelligent and innovative storage subsystems for mission critical and high bandwidth applications. Purpose-built for high volume, fail-safe data storage applications, the ENTERPRISE 16000 SERIAL ATA RAID sets new standards in its class. It features a backplane design for sixteen hot-swappable Serial ATA disk drives, N+1 load sharing power supplies with PFC, pure aluminum case and components, and specially designed airflow passages.

The array controller is 100% transparent to the host operating system and requires no custom drivers. The full-featured data protection subsystem supports RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, and JBOD. Available with either 7,200 or 10,000 RPM Serial ATA drives, the cache of the ENTERPRISE 16000 SERIAL ATA RAID can be upgraded from 128MB to 512MB.

An environmental monitoring unit ensures system reliability of the ENTERPRISE™ 16000 SERIAL ATA RAID. The environmental monitoring unit monitors the internal environment of the disk enclosure such as power supplies, temperature, voltage and cooling fans. It not only tracks the enclosure temperature, but also monitors individual disk temperatures as well. If any irregularity in these systems occurs, the monitoring unit alerts the administrator with an audible alarm, by fax and pager.
