  Multi-Path I/O

  RAC281 Series Enterprise IntelliRAID Now Supports Microsoft Multipath I/O (MPIO) that integrates tightly with the Microsoft Windows® family of products and their architectures. High reliance on the Internet and e-commerce means that organizations are increasingly requiring that their data be available 24x7, year round. Multipathing, the ability of a system to use more than one read/write path to a storage device, is a high availability solution that provides fault tolerance against single-point-of failure in hardware components. Multipathing can also provide load balancing of I/O traffic, thereby improving system and application performance.

  Power & Cooling

  RAG281 keeps your workloads and critical applications running 24x7 without hardware failure interruption through the deployment of intelligent and user friendly power and cooling management, specifically its redundant hot-swappable power supplies (2) and fans (3). As described by the testing engineer from hard drive manufacturer Western Digital Corporation's interoperability lab ". This system can compete side by side with some of the best systems that we have tested in our lab to date.".
  Product Overview
  The RAG281, intelligent iSCSI RAID System, is the latest addition to the award-winning family with a built-in 64-bit RAID controller for mission critical applications. Utilizing the cost-effective 3Gbps Serial ATA disks, the RAG281 offers Enterprise-grade solution for applications that demand nothing short of superior reliability. Designed to meet the challenge of high impact/high volume network storage requirements, the new RAG281 can be configured in minutes and is becoming the new standard for simplified SAN storage. With hundreds of installations worldwide RAG281 has built a solid reputation in markets spanning from video broadcasting to emerging disk based backup & recovery infrastructures.                                                           
  Feature & Benefits

  • Hybrid Serial ATA disk based storage, compatible 1.5 & 3.0Gbp/s disks
  • Embedded hardware RAID controller with dual iSCSI ports
  • 2U modular rack design easily integrates into existing storage infrastructures
  • 2 iSCSI full offload with load-balancing & fail-over
  • One logic volume shared by as many as 16 hosts
  • Windows VDS/VSS/MPIO support, host access control, & CHAP
  • Easy LCD control, Remote monitoring and RAID management over TCP
  RAG281 Versatility

  Featuring two iSCSI ports , the RAG281 IP runs 10 times faster than a NAS system and provides versatility critical to a company's IT infrastructure. RAG281 is powered by a cutting edge 64-bit RAID engine, up to 1GB cache, and 3.0 Gbp/s disks, which maximizes disk performance (175MB/s Dual channel) allowing for a broader range of storage possibilities. Built-in enterprise feature such as Snapshot, providing point-in-time recovery that safeguard accidental deletion, makes the new RAG281 an ideal solution for server storage such as Microsoft Exchange & SQL Server, as well as professional storage applications such as Disk-to-disk backup, database pools, image acquisition, near line storage, data centers, media & asset management libraries and shared SAN networks. Dynamic on-line RAID expansion allows additional capacity to be added without total system downtime, increasing your department's productivity .

  Powerful Storage Management

  RAG281 offers multiple management options to match your workflow, and can be completely auto configured in minutes using the convenient front LCD control panel, and monitored or reconfigured through a remote connection. A comprehensive menu screen facilitates the setup process and lets users reconfigure the system as storage needs change. An RS232 interface gives users access to advanced features such as multiple array settings, iSCSI parameters (connection mode, ID, LUN mapping, etc.) SNMP features and security options. A network interface is available for remote web browser based management and includes the essential tools required to manage and monitor your RAG281.

  Appliance-based Storage

  RAC281 is a host independent storage appliance which provides a transparent and driverless method of adding additional RAID (0, 1, 5, 50) protected storage to an existing IT infrastructure, regardless of your operating system or hardware. The RAG281 supports Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) , is designed to easily integrate into elaborate SAN fabrics or point-to-point centralized storage. RAG281 truly offers a flexible and powerful solution that will increase your capacity, productivity and add unprecedented data protection.
