Installation wizard for easy implementation, convenience web-based management for local or remote configuration, dual 10/100/1000 network support for teaming or redundant networking, and hardware RAID support for your data storage make the EliteNAS a simple trouble free unit. Raid configuration includes RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, and 6 for advanced data protection in large numbers of hard drive deployments. Optional expansion kit will add support of 10, 30, 50 and 60. EliteNAS also supports optional 10Gb Ethernet network Interface controller card for up to 10 times faster bandwidth compared to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet. Dedicated 1200MHz processor RAID engines support online migration and expansion while offloading complex RAID calculations to improve overall performance.
Optional SAS Expander support for storage expansion Optional SAS expander module upgrade kit allows it to connect to 14 additional SAS expander JBODs (EliteSTOR ES208X+BE, ES316X+B or ES424X+B), or up to 120 total drives for 360TB total storage. The optional SAS Expander Module kit also adds support to both high performance SAS hard drives and high capacity, low cost SATA hard drives. (Additional Gateway License and Upgrade Kit required).
Feature Rich Network Storage In comparison to other NAS units in the market, EliteNAS is bundled with many additional advanced features at no additional charge. iSCSI target support for iSCSI applications, iSCSI initiator support for easy future expansion, NAS to NAS folder replication, scheduled or on-demand volume snapshot, and local tape backup support are just a few of the many features this product offers.
iSCSI Support for VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V To take advantage of centralized storage for all virtual machines in VMware ESX or Vsphere, the EN208L+BXE can be used as a focal storage point for the VMWare ESX or ESXi server hosting multiple virtual machines. Utilizing the EN208L+BXE as an iSCSI target storage system for the VMware ESX/ESXi server, the EN208L+BXE is ready for your VMware storage virtualization needs. Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization environment is also supported. With the support of SPC-3, iSCSI can be used in Microsoft Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 clustering environment for high-availability applications.
Optional NAS to NAS Automatic Server Failover and Mirroring Server Failover and Mirroring (SFM) is an optional feature used to bind two EliteNAS servers as one so that data is written to both systems simultaneously. At the same time, automatic fail-over will supported in case of primary system failure. Clients attached to the primary NAS server can be serviced by the secondary server and will not notice the fail-over process when the secondary EliteNAS takes over to provide high availability redundancy.
