The S1000 supports a variety of connectivity options, making it ideal for organizations who desire the
ability to leverage their existing infrastructure and the flexibility to adapt as requirements change or new
technologies become available. Choose the best connectivity option for your environment between 1GbE
or 10GbE iSCSI, 4Gb Fibre Channel, or 6Gb/sec SAS controllers.
Highly Available
The SnapSAN S1000 is equipped with everything you need to protect your most valuable business data
and provide non-stop services for critical applications. High availability features include fully redundant,
hot-swappable components (power supplies, fan modules, battery backup modules, and SAS expansion
ports), volume configuration restoration which eliminates the need to reboot or shut down host systems,
and redundant RAID controllers with automatic failover.
For data protection, you can take read-only or writable snapshots for point-in-time recovery, as well as choose
from a variety of RAID levels including “N-way” mirroring to guard your data against simultaneous drive failures.
Easily Integrated
Extensive host OS support as well as certifications for Microsoft, VMware and Citrix ensure that the S1000
can integrate seamlessly into any operating environment. Ideal for virtualization environments, multiple
servers can be easily installed, managed and protected with no downtime or single point-of-failure.
The S1000 is fully compatible with Microsoft Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) providing
integrated data protection for Windows Server applications; and support for Microsoft MPIO ensures that
host connectivity remains stable to maximize system uptime.
Redundant SAS connections enable scalability for up to four SnapDisk E1000 expansion enclosures for
180TB of capacity. With the ability to mix-and-match drives within the same chassis and the support for
high performance 15K RPM SAS or Nearline SAS, the S1000 allows you to grow your storage in any way
necessary to meet the needs of your business.
The S1000 delivers best-in-class performance for server consolidation, databases, and low latency
applications. With superior throughput and IOPS, the S1000 is an ideal storage platform for applications
such as virtualization, cloud storage, Exchange, SQL, Oracle, and video surveillance.

All S1000 systems are equipped with a variety of “Green” features and advanced cooling mechanisms
which maximize energy efficiency and power savings. The auto disk spin-down feature ensures that the
system is consuming only the amount of power required to serve data. Environmental temperatures are
monitored and fans are automatically adjusted as needed to keep the system cool and running optimally.
In addition, the power supplies were designed to further maximize power efficiencies.
