Promise Technology has added to its line of VTrak iSCSI-to-SATA RAID subsystems aimed at bringing block-level networked RAID storage to small businesses deploying iSCSI networks.
The latest additions include the M610i, M310i and M210i subsystems, designed for large file operations through features like large frame support and link aggregation, with RAID 6 support to guard against multiple drive failure.
The systems are available in 2U and 3U form factors with eight to 16 3.5-inch SATA drive bays. Dual 1G iSCSI host channels can be combined to double available bandwidth, and the system is outfitted with 256 MB of battery-backed cache, upgradeable to 1G.
It also features an embedded management suite, the WebPAM PROe, which provides Microsoft Cluster and MPIO support.
