AC&NC LAUNCHES JETSTOR® NAS 724UX RAID ARRAYS TO DELIVER VERSATILE, ROBUST NAS & SAN STORAGE FOR ENTERPRISES OF ALL SIZES
JetStor NAS RAID Systems Feature Extraordinary Performance & Data Protection Thanks to ZFS Support and Solid-State Caching
Pittsburgh, PA, February 23, 2015. AC&NC, a provider of leading RAID/Hybrid Flash/All Flash storage solutions, today introduced its JetStor NAS 724UX RAID arrays to provide the I/O speeds and data protection needed for the most demanding workloads. The flexible 24-bay solutions integrate both network attached storage (NAS) and storage area network (SAN) storage as well as SAS, SATA, and solid-state drive (SSD) drives in a single chassis. Featuring the newest Intel Haswell architecture and energy-efficient power supplies to lower power consumption, they support the ZFS file system, SSD caching, data deduplication and compression for greater storage efficiencies, snapshots, thin provisioning, and a controller-based cableless design for greater manageability.
The ZFS file system stores data in unified storage pools, avoiding the need for volumes, and protects against data loss in the event of disk failure. Additionally, ZFS supports SSD caching, which enables the JetStor NAS 724UX RAID arrays to keep frequently read data in an SSD cache for extremely fast I/O operations while storing the data on slower, more economical hard drives. ZFS automatically moves often accessed data from the hard drives to the SSD cache for faster response times.
“Our JetStor NAS 724UX platforms can be tailored for every environment, business need, and budget,” said Gene Leyzarovich, president of AC&NC. “They leverage the ultra-fast I/O throughput of SSDs with the economies and capacities of traditional hard drives. Just importantly, they deliver the reliability of a proven, well-designed chassis.”
NAS, SAN & Multiple Protocols in One Chassis
The JetStor NAS 724UX storage platforms consolidate multi-protocol storage by supporting Windows CIFS, NFS, AFP, FTP, WebDAV, and iSCSI, eliminating the cost of a server for each supported protocol. The JetStor NAS 724UX chassis offers seven 1Gb Ethernet ports and the JetStor NAS 724UX 10G system features two 10Gb Ethernet and seven 1Gb Ethernet ports, both in small 4U enclosures. They support 2.5- and 3.5-inch drives and can be provisioned for capacity up to 21.6 terabytes.
To simplify user access to multiple data protocols, the JetStor NAS 724UX solutions support the patent-pending UnifiedAUTH, a unified authentication strategy that allows users to enter one password for multiple data services. The JetStor systems also integrate Windows Active Directory and LDAP, allowing IT administrators to manage up to 75,536 accounts easily. Their support for Windows ACL simplifies the setting of user privileges and provides access control, ensuring only authorized users access data.
“JetStor NAS 724UX systems are designed for uses cases that both small and large enterprises face,” added Leyzarovich. “They support virtualization and cloud and disk-to-disk backups, as well as applications like media, mail, and database servers, CCTV, and data archiving. They’re ideal for any organization that requires fast, dependable, and cost-effective storage.”
To simplify their management, the JetStor 724UX RAID arrays ship with RAID Manager, a browser-based RAID administration application. Using the software’s graphical user interface, administrators can remotely configure and proactively manage the arrays. RAID Manager automatically provides email event notifications and eases deployment and configuration for even beginning system administrators.
