Xyratex Storage Array RS-1600-FC - 16 Bays - Refurbished

Following the very successful Salient (4U, 12 drive) family of storage systems, Xyratex presents its latest product range, the Salient RS family. This equally innovative and cost effective range of high performance, modular, storage systems provides a highly stable and reliable enclosure for sixteen Low Profile (1in) disk drives in only 5.25" of rack space. 16 drives in a 3U rack enclosure represents industry leading capacity in this form factor, with absolutely no compromise in cooling capability up to 40°C ambient conditions. Highly effective cooling ensures your drives will provide the best possible Mean Time Between Failure, maintaining the drive manufacturer’s warranty in full effect.

The standard enclosure is designed for 24x7 operation with fully redundant and hot-swappable data path logic, power supplies, cooling and enclosure management functions. Disk drive carriers are lockable and hot-swappable.

A range of optional modules provides customer flexibility and investment protection. Operating to the latest industry Fibre

Channel standards at 1 or 2Gb/s, enclosures can have a number of JBOD loop architectures or provide high performance RAID where required. By simply swapping IO modules, customers can upgrade from a 1Gb JBOD to a fully featured 2Gb dual RAID system.

The following modules are available for the product; full redundancy is provided if two modules are installed.

• FC-AL Single loop 1Gb, with DB9 or SC Optical connections.

• FC-AL Single or Dual Loop 1Gb/2Gb, with SFP interfaces

• RAID: full function 1Gb/1Gb (Single or dual controllers with integrated Hub function for failover)

• RAID: full function 2Gb/2Gb with dual host ports per controller, single or dual controllers, and integrated hub function

A flexible design approach enables Xyratex to provide functions or features to maximize our OEM partners’ potential; please discuss your requirements with us. Continuing our policy of providing product exclusively for OEM/System Integration Partners, the RS family has been designed with productization to match our customers brand requirements. Disk drive carriers are totally customizable through changes in color and form without incurring major costs.

The drive carriers also have mechanical properties which ensure excellent thermal, EMI and rotational vibration characteristics to support 15K RPM drives and 2Gb operation.
