OVERVIEW
The A16F-G2430 comes in an
enhanced, cableless, highdensity 3U chassis. The
single RAID controller
provides two 4Gbps Fibre
host channels and sixteen
3Gb SATA II drive channels.
Its high performance and full
bandwidth assure the highest
level of data availability in a
safe environment.
Reliability
The A16F-G2430 fully supports advanced,
enterprise-class RAID features. Any logical
drives, logical volumes, and logical partitions
existing within the A16F-G2430 can be configured
using any RAID level including RAID6, a proprietary
extension of RAID5 that improves fault tolerance
with the ability to handle the failure of any two drives in the array.
The subsystem further guarantees data safety by supporting an optional battery
backup unit (BBU) and the installation of an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
The BBU provides power to cache memory during a power failure, while the UPS
extends the operating time for the entire subsystem if a power shortage occurs.
Combined with Infortrend's seamless firmware features such as DrvSmart and
SysSmart, the ES A16F-G2430 delivers reliable, consolidated storage for today's
enterprise environments.

MAJOR MARKETS
AND USES
Infortrend products are used in
server-attached and networked
data storage environments in
major industries such as medical
imaging, multi-media on demand
(MOD), and digital media including
video-on-demand, stream editing
and many others.
IOSmart
The IOSmart technologies consist of specific functions and configuration
options that control various I/O characteristics in order to meet the rapidly
increasing requirements of today's applications. The functions include
adaptable strip size, adaptive write policy and guaranteed latency I/O which
improve sequential write performance and ensure the fast and continuous
flow of data.
DrvSmart
The DrvSmart utility provides an easy way to store data while keeping it safe.
One of the main DrvSmart functions, Media Scan, retrieves data from
degraded or damaged hard drives and handles low quality drives in both the
degraded mode and during the rebuild process. Other DrvSmart features
include disk cloning, drive roaming, SMART, transparent resetting of nonresponsive hard drives, and RAID parity update tracking and recovery.
SysSmart
SysSmart combines enclosure monitoring and firmware management
capabilities to minimize the chance of downtime caused by hardware failures.
The auto data protection mechanisms were developed to ensure data safety.
Other SysSmart functions include event-triggered as well as other monitoring
utilities and approaches combined with the powerful RAIDWatch manager.
Component status, voltage and temperature readings, and system events are
instantly revealed through the manager's graphical interface.
Availability
The A16F-G2430 provides quiet operation with unsurpassed reliability for even
the most extreme storage environments. To ensure a high level of system
availability, the unique cableless chassis design allows all critical components
such as disk drives, and power supplies to be redundant and hot-swappable.
These modules are integrated into the passive backplane via board-to-board
connectors to increase availability and eliminate single points of failure, thus
making this subsystem an excellent choice for mission-critical applications.
W H Y BUY FC-4G
TECHNOLOGY?
This reliable, SAN-ready subsystem features a cableless, backplane-based
design to eliminate problems associated with cable connections and offer a
higher level of serviceability and hot-swappability. The subsystem's modular
nature and the easy accessibility to all field replaceable units (FRUs) through its
front and rear panels ensure easy subsystem maintenance.
Manageability
Managed by the LCD keypad panel, the A16F-G2430 provides a convenient way
to monitor and be notified of the subsystem status. The LCD keypad panel is a
simple management interface allowing users to configure and monitor the
subsystem. All modules on the subsystem have LED indicators so that subsystem
status can be determined in seconds.
The subsystem can also be accessed through the RS-232C terminal, telnet, or
remotely through the browser- or Java-based RAIDWatch Manager. By setting up
RAIDWatch Manager, users can be constantly aware and automatically notified
of array status using any or all of the following notification methods: email, fax,
LAN broadcast, SNMP traps, MSN Messenger, SMS messages, and the
configuration utility screen.
