Genesis V RAID subsystems

Micronet has announced 300-400MBps Genesis V RAID rackmount storage systems, intended for small and medium businesses. The Genesis line consists of six unitsm including the Genesis Dual 3U-16 bay dual controller Fibre to SAS/SATA II, the Genesis V 3U-16 bay 4GB per second Fibre to SATA II, the Genesis V 3U-16 Bay SAS to SAS/SATA II and the Genesis V 2U-12 Bay Fibre to SATA II. The company is also providing the Genesis V 2U-12 Bay and 8 Bay SCSI U 320 to SATA II.

The 3U-16TB SAS-SAS/SATA RAID is a web browser-based RAID manager that enables local or remote configuration, and management and monitoring of all system events; e-mail alerts can be sent to inform users of system health based on custom-defined policies. The device comes equipped with high-capacity SATA II or SAS drives, and supports up to 128 LUNs per RAID set. Online abilities allow for array roaming, capacity expansion, volume set expansion, and RAID level/stripe size migration.

For the 2U and 3U rackmount disk models, users can choose between a 12- or 16-bay Fibre Channel SATA II/SAS device and an Ultra 320 SATA II 8/16 bay system. All devices offer transparent data protection for all opening systems, allow online capacity expansion within the enclosure, and provide local audible event notification. RAID levels supported in the subsystems include 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, 6 and JBOD. Password protection is available, along with support for USB connections.

Other features provide support for clustering technology, and multiple array enclosures per host connection. Costs for Genesis V rackmount systems start at $3,500 and vary depending on capacity and configuration. Products are distributed through Ingram Micro and available through the Ingram partner channel.
