Ultra-Dense, High-availability Platforms House up to 480TB of Data in a 4U Configuration for Applications like Big Data Analytics and High-Performance Computing
Pittsburgh, PA, November 11, 2013. AC&NC, a provider of leading RAID storage solutions, today introduced the new JetStor SAS 780JH family of JBOD platforms to address such demands as Big Data, Hadoop, HPC (High Performance Computing), ZFS, and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 projects. The rack-mounted solutions are designed for data-intensive environments that require extreme capacity and robust operation in a space-efficient chassis.
The JetStor SAS 780JH platform features 80 hot-swappable drive bays and simultaneously supports high-bandwidth SAS2 and SATA3 drives to deliver the best performance at the lowest cost. They deploy the latest generation SAS2.0 technology for 6Gb/s performance through 4x mini SAS external connections, making them also ideal for applications like data archiving, disk-to-disk backups, and audio and video streaming that must capture and store vast quantities of data without the capacity constraints of RAID arrays.
With so many enterprises struggling with torrents of data, AC&NC is delighted to offer such effective solutions as the JetStor SAS 780JH platforms,” said Gene Leyzarovich, president of AC&NC. “They target challenging use cases like Hadoop analytics and HPC that need maximum disk utilization and bullet-proof reliability in a very compact form factor.”
Rugged, Modular Design
The JetStor SAS 780JH family is comprised of the JetStor SAS 780JH with a single SAS2 JBOD controller and the JetStor SAS 780JHD with redundant active/active controllers for particularly demanding needs. Both platforms feature a modular architecture that is engineered for non-stop operation and reduced ownership costs.
Their fully cableless design maximizes signal integrity for improved reliability. Features like four 650W high-efficiency, redundant, hot-swappable power supplies with integrated turbo-cooling and separate power connections provide system tolerance against any component failure. Data remains online when drives are replaced and capacity increased, and data is automatically rebuilt on new drives. Intelligent airflow and thermal management enhance energy efficiency and a central management utility allows enterprises to easily monitor multiple units for storage troves that can be petabytes in size.
To further enhance availability, the solutions enable proactive maintenance by issuing SNMP or SMTP email notifications of all system events. They also use industry-standard SCSI Enclosure Services to monitor enclosure and disk environmental conditions and provide component diagnostics.
The JetStor SAS 780JH platforms ship with a three year warranty that covers all components.
