16-drive iSCSI storage
Enhance Technology has unveiled its next generation UltraStor RS16 IP-4, a rack-mount 3U 16-drive Quad Gigabit iSCSI independent RAID storage system. The new RS16 IP-4 is the latest addition to Enhance's UltraStor RS series family with a built-in 64-bit RAID controller for mission critical applications. Key UltraStor RS16 IP-4 features include Snapshot, N-way Mirror, RAID-6 data protection, automatic background data regeneration, dynamic online volume expansion, and Multi-Path I/O support for Windows workstations & servers (pricing was unavailable).
The UltraStor RS16 IP-4, capable of supporting up to sixteen 1TB SATA II 3Gbps HDDs and powered by a cutting edge 64-bit RAID engine with up to 1GB cache, aims to maximize disk performance and data transfer throughput with its quad Gigabit iSCSI ports. A built-in Web GUI RAID management system enables users to monitor and control systems from remote locations via a Web browser, and supports a 'Snapshot' feature which takes an 'image' of the logical volume at a particular point in time for consistent backup of data.
Enhance's UltraStor RS16 IP-4 also includes a hot swappable 460W redundant power supply and cooling modules that enable system maintenance without interruption of service. An LCD control panel facilitates the setup process and enables users to reconfigure the system as storage needs change over time.
