Dynamic Network Factory Offers Enterprise™ 16320 SATA-to-Ultra320 RAID System

Storage capacity scales to 4TB

Hayward, CA, May 5, 2004 -- Dynamic Network Factory, Inc., a leading maker of affordable NAS and RAID, recently announced the release of its Enterprise™ 16320 Serial ATA RAID system. This intelligent and innovative storage subsystem is one of the first non-PCI based RAIDs with high-speed Ultra320 SCSI connectivity. It thereby avoids PCI performance limitations, and combines the efficiency of SCSI with the cost advantages of 1.5Gb/s Serial ATA. Housing 16 SATA drive bays in a 3U footprint, it has a storage capacity that starts at 576GB and scales to 4TB. For easy integration, the 16320 features a fast 320MB/s dual port SCSI interface, and maximizes performance with up to 1GB of cache memory.

Importantly, the product has dual-host capability and optional dynamic volume sharing. Dynamic Network Factory’s Dynamic Share software allows multiple users to work simultaneously on a single NTFS volume, thus increasing productivity and avoiding the downtime associated with leaving a single computer in control.

Continuity is ensured by triple load-sharing power supplies, hot-swappable drives, and highly sensitive environment monitoring. In case of any anomalies, this unit can send alerts via fax or email. The data protection subsystem offers a wide range of RAID levels, including 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, 30, 50 and JBOD, allowing administrators to choose a suitable level of performance and safety. All RAID functionality is transparent and independent of operating systems. The Enterprise™ 16320 is designed for applications requiring high data throughput, large capacity, superior availability, and flexibility of configuration.

This product is available immediately, directly through Dynamic Network Factory, or major reseller channels.
