D1-Q36 6G SAS system is specially designed for high availability applications.
The D1-Q36 is well equipped with fully redundant components for all major functions,
including redundant RAID controllers, power supplies, fan modules, battery
backup modules, and SAS JBOD expansion ports. Being hot pluggable, all of
them provide non-stop services. In addition, the firmware is high available as well,
including RAID 6, 60 support, Opslag writable snapshot, Windows VSS support,
and volume configuration restoration; all of these are provided to reduce the
chance of rebooting or shutdown. Distinct from others,D1-Q36 is able to upgrade
firmware without system down time. Both firmware image and volume handling
are well protected by the redundant RAID controllers; when one RAID controller
is down or has lost the connection, the other RAID controller takes over its tasks
immediately. The volumes and the services are transferred seamlessly simultaneously.
D1-Q36 IOPS is 70,000 at maximum, much higher than other storage systems
within the same segment in the current market; besides, its throughput is
3000MB/Sec. at maximum.
The optimized IOPS and throughput are capable of providing run-time critical
online services, such as Cloud storage, SQL, Exchange and high-end surveillance
storages. Furthermore, with the 6G SAS interface, D1-Q36 is ideal for virtualization
environments - VMWare, Hyper-V, and Citrix. The data volumes can be
managed easily and well protected by Opslag advanced data protection features,
and there will be no system downtime caused by single point of failure.
All D1-Q36 systems are equipped with Opslag’s default green features for power
saving. In most cases, the hard drives consume most power. With the autodisk
spin down feature and proper configuration, the power consumption ofhard drives
can be reduced to a minimum, and users will not even notice this feature. D1-Q36
monitors the environment temperature for cooling mechanism and the fan modules
respond accordingly. The power supply modules are all 80 PLUS power efficient
for better power converting rate. In virtue of the reduction of hard drive
power consumption, the advanced cooling mechanism, and the energy-efficient
power supplies, the unnecessary power cost is decreased greatly.
