Elma unveils new NAS appliance

Remote RAID array management through SNMP or a web interface

By CBR Staff Writer

ACT/Technico, part of Elma Electronic’s Systems division, has unveiled RAIDStor NAS appliance, a ‘rugged’ network attached storage platform that reportedly provides data collection and storage in applications with high shock and vibration parameters.

According to Elma Electronic, the new 2U convection-cooled RAIDStor NAS appliance is designed to meet MIL-S-901D Grade A (barge test) and MIL-S-167 (vibration) requirements with no data loss or hard drive damage, making the system suitable for harsh military environments.

The company said that the new appliance provides remote RAID array management through SNMP or web interface. Its network attached topology allows real-time data access by sharing data across multiple users to reduce overall storage capacity needed.

The company noted that, built on CompactPCI platform, the new appliance comes with four hot swappable, removable storage drives, either solid state flash or rotating in two horizontally-mounted 6U single slot blades. The system’s hot swappable power supply can be expanded to up to two modules. The RAIDStor comes with driver support for VxWorks or Linux.

The company also claims that the new appliance offers RAID level 5 protection across the four drives for a distributed parity redundancy architecture and provides 100% data preservation even with a failure of any one drive.
