The FibreStream Fibre Channel RAID storage system delivers extremely
fast sustained performance and high reliability for the most demanding video and data applications. The FibreStream provides Fibre-tothe-host, SAS/SATA to-the-drives and comes available with either two
or four 4Gb/s Fibre Channel host ports (LC-SFPs) or four 8Gb/s Fibre
Channel host ports (LC-SFPs) for the utmost in data delivery.
Completely scalable, FibreStream allows you to create or add to your
existing Storage Area Network (SAN) using the highest performance
per dollar system available.
Performance and Reliability you can count on
To ensure extreme reliability in the worst conditions, FibreStream features
redundant (N+1) hot-swappable 620W power supplies and redundant
(N+1) hot-swappable cooling fans. Offering a wide selection of RAID data
protection modes, the FibreStream can be configured for RAID levels 0, 1, 4,
5, 6, 10, 40, 50 or 60, delivering 650 MB/s performance in RAID 5. True SES 2.0
services are integrated for local or remote monitoring to help guarantee
enterprise-class reliability.
Large capacity in a small form factor
Each FibreStream RAID shelf unit contains sixteen hot-swappable disk
drive canisters in a dense 3U rack mount frame. The canisters carry the
latest 3Gb/s SAS or SATA-2 disk drives, affording up to 32TB native
capacity using the latest SATA-2 disk drives. The disk drives are
contained in unique light weight, high technology resin carriers having
integrated light pipes, latching handles, EMI shields and are all
interchangeable with other BlueStor product disk carriers.
FibreStream can be easily expanded past the sixteen internal drives by
daisy chaining a BlueStor SAS JBOD Expansion unit through two SAS
8088 connectors provided on the rear of each FibreStream enclosure.
Multiple expansion units can be further connected to expand your
RAID volume(s).
