According to StorCase one of the main features of SAF-TE
is that one board accommodates up to four channels - this enables customers to implement the board without having to sacrifice more than one SCSI ID per InfoStation.
was the predecessor to the SCSI Enclosure Services (SES) ANSI standard.
In addition to the standard features listed above, the 6022P-8R/6022P-8 includes a 2U form factor, six SCA hot-swap Ultra320 drive bays with SAF-TE
, a 400W power supply, one slim CD-ROM, and one floppy drive.
Its hardware includes two MegaRAID Elite 1600 RAID controllers, two 68-pin UHD to VHDCI 1-meter cables and the StorTrends 1312-C subsystem that features two cluster enablers (series 437), 12 hot swap drive bays, fans and power supplies and SAF-TE
Specific product benefits and features include: support for heterogeneous environments -- AdminiStor Plus is compatible with Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, Solaris (Sparc), and Linux operating systems; seamless integration with nStor storage solutions; local and/or remote access by system administrators; easy setup of any standard RAID configurations without interruption of server operations; full monitoring of component health via SES and SAF-TE
industry standards; full Logical Unit Mapping (LUN) for easy storage allocation and partitioning; and a permanent database that provides means for tracking problem areas, balancing storage usage and scheduling routine maintenance.
In addition to its unique air-handling capabilities, the enclosure adds reliability with its redundant and hot-swappable disk drives, fans and power supplies with independent power cords, as well as built-in SAF-TE
monitoring of all enclosure environmental elements.
compliant enclosures offer monitoring and status of its fans, temperature, power supplies and drives.
Fault tolerance is also featured with SAF-TE
for monitoring and communication of the status of enclosure power supplies, cooling fans and temperature as well as SMART ability performing near-term failure prediction of disk drives.
As a long-term vendor of RAID controllers and motherboards, AMI now offers custom IPMI, SAF-TE
and Intel(R) motherboard compliant backplane designs.
Digi-Data Corporation, manufacturer of the world's fastest RAID controllers, announces the immediate availability of the A-SFT3312 SAF-TE
Enclosure Management Module.
The company is utilizing its expertise to develop products for emerging standards such as Fibre Channel and Ultra3, as well as, SAF-TE
, SES, and IPMI enclosure management solutions.
Fault Tolerance features include automatic detection of failed drives; automatic and transparent rebuild of failed drives; online RAID capacity expansion; hot spare and hot swap drive support; RAID configuration stored on both disk and in non-volatile RAM; SMART-capable drive support and SAF-TE
