D-Link has launched iSCSI SAN Arrays, 1GbE DSN-6210 and 10GbE DSN-6510 for small to mid-sized businesses, state and federal government agencies and educational institutions.
The iSCSI SAN Arrays are cost effective iSCSI solution and delivers speed and flexibility in both physical and virtual environments.
The company said DSN-6210 includes six 1GbE Copper iSCSI data ports controller while the DSN-6510 includes two 10GbE SFP+ iSCSI data ports per controller for high performance environments, dual-redundant power supplies.
Additionally, iSCSI SAN Arrays support up to 72 TB of internal raw capacity with 12 SAS/SATA drive bays using 6TB drives.
The DSN-6000 series array can also scale to over 1PB of raw capacity by adding up to 21 DSN-6020 expansion JBODs.
In addition, users can host multiple processing-intensive applications simultaneously without performance degradation such as server virtualization, video post-production, back-up and disaster recovery.
Company officials said DSN-6210 and DSN-6510 offer flexible storage architecture for IP surveillance installations and secondary server applications.
The DSN-6210 and DSN-6510 also provide a high performance, easy-to-use solution for accessing, sharing, and backing up important data and intuitive graphical interface for easily configuring the array.
The new products also support set of virtualization technologies including VMware VAAI, Citrix and Hyper-V while avoiding storage space by purchasing only the disk capacity actually required.
“Beyond the robust features and attractive price point, system integrators will appreciate the ability to mix non-proprietary hard drives including SSD and standard off-the-shelf drives,” said Mike Boschma, director of product marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc.
Last month, D-Link offered a free dual-port 10GBASE-T network adapter card (DXE-820T) to purchasers of the new 10-Gigabit Web Smart Switch (DXS-1210-12TC).
In June, D-Link launched ShareCenter 4-Bay Cloud Network Storage Enclosure (DNS-340L) to provide features offered in both business and consumer storage arrays.
