The VessRAID Series of storage subsystems are designed to make webscale computing easier for developers by offering scalable, energyefficient storage solutions for network computing. With Promises 4th generation Unified Common RAID Core and management software, scaling up to 80 bays on-the-fly is easy and affordable.
Exponential Data Growth of Unstructured Data
Managing day-to-day computing needs as well as archives of documents and emails, digital libraries, image and audio data banks to meet user requirements and industry regulations may easily create terabytes of storage demand.
VessRAID is a perfect fit for unstructured data storage like general-purpose file serving, offering cost-effective expandable storage for SMB and Entry- Level applications and access profiles.
Backup and Restore - Online - D2D
Shrinking backup windows require rapid storage and restoration of files and operating systems. To maximize operation, customers are switching to disk-to-disk backups to support restoration Service Level Agreements.
VessRAID features massive capacity with flexible direct attached storage (SAS) or IP-SAN (iSCSI) connectivity. Power management enables time and energy-efficient backups.
Moving from analog to digital, the 24/7 demands for video surveillance are creating incredible demand for storage.
VessRAID with its low-cost expansion capabilities and SAS and IP-camera ready iSCSI host interface is the product of choice for this application.
Graphic and video files may consume large amounts of disk space. When jobs are complete, they are often written and stored on removable media.
With scalable capacity, VessRAID allows you to save money and prevent data loss due to unstable removable media. Online files are also faster to access.
GreenRAID Energy Saving Features VessRAIDs power-scheduling feature allows the system to power-on from standby mode to run user-scheduled tasks such as backups and archives. Then as the task completes, the system goes into standby until the next scheduled task. Additionally, the 80PLUS-certified power supplies ensure the efficient use of power and minimize heat generation. VessRAID green features provide annual cost savings of up to 70% over competitive solutions.
Expandable Modularity The 2U/12 bay and 3U/16 bay VessRAID models are fully expandable to meet your needs today and in the future. Up to four additional expansion chassis may be added to the RAID system. This provides expansion for up to 60 drives using the 2U chassis or 80 drives using the 3U chassis.
Ease of Management One-Plug-Auto-Service (OPAS) reduces the time spent on conventional administration tasks. By simply plugging in a supported USB flash drive into VessRAIDs USB port, users are able to automatically download system service reports, as well as perform advanced functions like firmware upgrades and configuration script installation.
