• RAID 1, 5, 6, 10 & 50 support
• Snapshot support for up to 192 snaps
• Four (4) 4Gb/s high speed
Fibre Channel host connections per system
• Up to 48 high performance cost effective SATA drives in Redefining flexibility and availability, the Xyratex F5404E offers
one system
affordable RAID data storage with high performance capabilities.
• StorViewTM controller The Xyratex F5404E sets a new standard in the design of mass storage enclosures and
provides unsurpassed disk storage capacity in a single enclosure. Housing 48 SATA drives in
4U of rack space, the F5404E can store 36TB of data in a single unit. With a combination
of high performance controllers and high density packaging, the fully HA design of the
F5404E increases the flexibility of storage deployment to the end user. The F5404E
provides an ideal solution to the secondary disk storage needs of compliance, disk to disk
backup, and CAS environments.
based or host based Software clearly differentiates the Xyratex F5404E over other near-line storage solutions on
the market today. All models in the Xyratex 5000 series of RAID systems feature StorView
for intuitive administration and performance monitoring. Automated control of individual
controller’s cache, arrays, and devices via a web-based interface simplifies storage
administration, resulting in decreased management costs and improved storage utilization.
All models in the Xyratex 5000 RAID series come with Snapshot. Four snapshots are
available to start implementing point-in-time recovery capabilities. An optional Snapshot
upgrade allows for up to 24 snapshots per Logical Drive and up to 8 Logical Drives in
snapshot mode. A full-function Command Line Interface (CLI) can be used to integrate
array management into existing operational procedures. Available an optional upgrade to
StorView, StorView Global configures, monitors, and manages Xyratex 5000 Series RAID
controllers from any location, anywhere on the network.
The Xyratex F5404E provides the bandwidth needs for disk-to-disk backup, archive, and
other storage intensive applications. The Xyratex F5404E leverages SAS full duplex, pointto-point architecture with dedicated connections for maximum data throughput. With
maximum flexibility, superior performance and continuous availability, the Xyratex F5404E
sets new standards for near-line RAID storage offerings.
