The F6500E RAID systems are designed for speed, integrity, and always-on-availability using newly available 8Gb/s Fibre Channel technologies.
Today's data-rich business environment presents a unique challenge for the storage manager. Balancing the demands of applications, performance requirements, capacity, management tools, environment and cost can be an impossible task. This often results in an inefficient and expensive solution. The F6500E sets a new performance standard for PAC Storage RAID systems, with 8Gb/s high performance Fibre Channel connections and faster internal bus architecture. The PAC Storage Model F6500E RAID systems are designed for speed, integrity, and always-on-availability using newly available 8Gb/s Fibre Channel and SAS technologies. The F6500E RAID controller provides full featured hardware redundancy, high performance host connections, and easy expansion with fault-tolerant, full-duplex, high-speed SAS external ports. An internal SAS interface delivers a total of 96 drives in a single RAID system. PAC Storage's dual controller configurations provide the ultimate in high availability with complete hardware and firmware redundancy and automatic fail-over/fail-back capabilities. The Model F6500E RAID system adapts to a broad range of applications, and the capability to mix both SATA and SAS technology within a single disk enclosure, including 2TB SAS drives, provides an optimum tiered storage environment for Information Lifecycle Management.
