EliteNAS EN208L+BXE – 2U 8 Bay Intel Xeon Hardware RAID 6 NAS + iSCSI Rackmount Server

EliteNAS EN208L+BXE – 2U 8 Bay Intel Xeon Hardware RAID 6 NAS + iSCSI Rackmount Server
Item# ST-SAN-EN208LplusBXE
The EliteNAS EN208L+BXE Linux series is a comprehensive feature-dense 2U 8-bay NAS rackmount with Intel Xeon Dual Core Processor and 6MB internal cache processor with 2GB DDR-2 ECC memory. The EN208L+BXE is a performance tuned NAS server capable of unlimited clients, with hardware RAID protection, up to 16TB of storage capacity, and dual Gigabit Ethernet. Now with optional expansion upgrade allow expansion up to 7 more addition EliteSTOR SAS Expander JBOD storage, or total of 122 drives, making a total of 244TB total storage in a network sharing or iSCSI envirnoment.

Note: Please allow 3 days for rackmount testing before shipment.

Dual Gigabit and RAID Hard Drives Protection
EliteNAS is built with simple setup and maintenance features. 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 date storage make EliteNAS a simple trouble free unit.

Feature Rich Network Storage – Built-in Snapshot, Folder Replication and iSCSI
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 just to name a few.

iSCSI Support for VMware 
SAN environment is most suitable for server virtualization, and SAN is mandatory when utilizing VMware Infrastructure 3 advance features. EliteNAS has built-in iSCSI target to fulfill this requirement at a fraction of the cost of Fibre Optics.

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 written to both systems simultaneously. At the same time,  automatic fail-over will supported in case of primary system is fail. 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 avaliablity redundancy.

*NEW Optional SAS hard drives support with expansion for storage expansion
The optional upgrade add SAS hard drives supports with SAS expander, allow connect to additonal 7 more SAS expander JBOD (EliteSTOR ES208X+BE, ES316X+B or ES424X+B), or up to 122 total drives for 244TB total stoage. It includes the following feature:

  • Support SAS or SATA hard drives – Support both high performance SAS hard drives or high capacity, low cost SATA hard drives.
  • Hardware RAID support up to 60 – Support latest RAID level, including RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 30, 50 and 60 for advance data protection in large number of hard drives deployments.
  • Expansion up to 244TB – NAS or iSCSI storage can be expand with EliteSTOR ES208X+BE, ES316X+B or ES424X+B with up to 7 units or 122 hard drives.

*New 10Gb Network Interface Controller Option for 10GbE Network Support
10Gb Ethernet network Interface controller card is supported for 10Gb Networking. With 10 times faster bandwidth compare to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet, 10Gb network interface controller provide high performance solution when needed. XFP, SFP+ and CX4 connector are avaliable.
