VessRAID™1000i Series

SAN with iSCSI for Broader Storage Possibilities
VessRAID 1000i series provides four-port iSCSI capacity using block-level transfers over a network, a faster data throughput compared to file-based data sharing like NAS. iSCSI encapsulates SCSI CDBs into TCP/IP packets where they are used to create a SAN. This proven technology includes a variety of IP-based applications and enables you to leverage existing network infrastructure. That means IT managers don’t need to install an expensive Fibre Channel fabric to obtain SAN capabilities. With an iSCSI SAN, they can have the consolidated storage space, remote and central management, and the flexibility to increase capacity on-the-fly. With the introduction of the VessRAID iSCSI series, users can easily scale storage architecture, integrate storage pools, reduce administrative load, and optimize storage utilization for a greater efficiency.

iSCSI in Surveillance
Network Video Recording (NVR) is an IP-based digital video recording system designed to operate 24/7, 365 days a year with non-stop A/V recording. This application demands reliable, robust, consolidated storage with remote management capability. VessRAID 1000i series in an IP SAN-based NVR system offers a more cost-effective alternative to the management complexity of a large installed DAS deployment. iSCSI technology encapsulates SCSI CDBs into TCP/IP packets enabling efficient, large block-level file transfers of sequential I/O for archiving and centralized storage management. As a result, you get the benefits of a SAN with the economy and convenience of Ethernet. NVR gives you video surveillance with central management plus consolidated archiving and storage, using proven technologies you already know.
