            Ordering Information

            The 16TB PROMISE VTrak x30 Series 3U RAID Subsystem with eight SATA drives delivers the performance, reliability, and upgradeability for entry-level direct attached server applications. Eight 2TB 7200-rpm 3Gb/s SATA drives in a 3U rack-optimized enclosure provide 16TB of raw capacity for assignment to one or more RAID sets supporting all the major RAID levels including hardware RAID 0, 1, 5, and 6. The high-availability design of the VTrak x30 Series RAID subsystem provides the capability of dual active/active RAID controllers built using Intel Xeon C3500 series processors with four 8Gb Fibre Channel ports and 4GB of DDR3 cache per controller and redundant power supply units.

            The VTrak x30 Series RAID subsystem provides flexible configuration capability and can grow along with your business. Start with an eight drive configuration and scale the RAID subsystem with additional SATA drives or expansion units as your requirements change. In addition, you can field upgrade the RAID subsystem to a dual redundant active/active controller with the purchase of a PROMISE VTrak x30 service parts kit. With large VTrak deployments worldwide, enterprise users have come to rely on PROMISE VTrak to protect their valuable data. The VTrak x30 Series supports attachment of up to seven VTrak x30 Series expansion chassis, providing a total of 384TB of raw capacity using 2TB SATA drives for high-capacity storage applications like tiered storage, disk-to-disk backup, or archive.

            This enterprise-class, cable-less system design includes fully redundant, hot-swappable controllers and power supply units. All system components are constantly monitored to ensure continuous operation in case of failure or component malfunction. A field upgradeable option, dual active/active, failover/failback RAID controllers provide redundant data paths to help ensure availability. Plus, the VTrak x30 Series RAID subsystem features an embedded software solution that requires zero software installation to manage and configure your storage. Simply open your browser, locate the subsystem using Bonjour then click on the VTrak x30 Series unit you would like to manage. An easy-to-use guided setup allows novice users to create and provision the storage in just a few minutes. Managing your subsystem software updates has never been easier with PerfectFlash which allows software updates without the need to schedule maintenance downtime. The VTrak x30 Series’ rich feature set gives advanced users powerful tools to rapidly deploy multiple units tuned for applications like Xsan and Final Cut Studio.
