EliteNAS EN212L+B 64bit - 2U 12 Bay NAS + iSCSI Hardware RAID 60 w/ Exp. Unified Network Storage
Item# KT-EN212LplusB

The EliteNAS EN212L+B is a comprehensive feature-dense 2U 12-bay 64-bit NAS + iSCSI unified storage rackmount with up to 12 hard drives for CIFS/SMB, AFP and NFS network and iSCSI SAN. The EN212L+B is a performance tuned NAS + iSCSI storage designed with hardware RAID protection and dual Gigabit Ethernet, capable of unlimited clients with network share, and support in IP / FC SAN storage. The built-in SAS expander feature allows expansion of up to 7 additional EliteSTOR SAS Expander JBOD storage units, up to a maximum of 120 drives, making a total of 720TB total storage in a network sharing or iSCSI / Fibre SAN environment. With 72TB in a single rackmount, the EN212L+B is capable of fulfilling the most demanding storage needs.

Dual Gigabit and RAID Hard Drives Protection
EliteNAS is built with simple setup and maintenance features. An installation wizard for easy implementation, convenience web-based management for local or remote configuration, dual 10/100/1000 network support for teaming or redundant networking, and hardware RAID support for your data storage make EliteNAS a simple trouble free unit. Dedicated 1200MHz processor RAID engines support online migration and expansion while offloading complex RAID calculations to improve overall performance. 

SAS Expander support for storage expansion
Supported SAS expander allows connecting to 7 additional SAS expander JBODs (EliteSTOR ES208X+BE, ES316X+B or ES424X+B), or up to 120 total drives for 360 TB total storage. (Optional Gateway License Required)

Support SAS or SATA hard drives
Supports both high performance SAS hard drives or high capacity, low cost SATA hard drives.

Hardware RAID support up to 60
Supports latest RAID levels, including RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 30, 50 and 60 for advance data protection in large numbers of hard drive deployments.

Feature Rich Network Storage -  Build-in Snapshot, Folder Replication and iSCSI
In comparison to other NAS units in the market, the EliteNAS is bundled with many additional advanced features at no additional charge. iSCSI target support for iSCSI applications, iSCSI initiator support for easy future expansion, NAS to NAS folder replication, scheduled or on-demand volume snapshot, and local tape backup support are just a few of the many features this product offers.

iSCSI Support for VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V
To take advantage of centralized storage for all virtual machines in VMware ESX or VSphere, the EN212L+B can be used as a focal storage point for the VMWare ESX or ESXi server hosting multiple virtual machines. Utilizing the EN212L+B as an iSCSI target storage system for the VMware ESX/ESXi server, the EN212L+B is ready for your VMware storage virtualization needs.

Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization environment is also supported. With the support of SPC-3, iSCSI can be used in Microsoft Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 clustering environment for high-availability applications.

10Gb Network Interface Controller Option for 10GbE Network Support
10Gb Ethernet network Interface controller card is supported for 10Gb Networking. With 10 times faster bandwidth compared to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet, the 10Gb network interface controller provides high performance solutions when needed. 10GBASE-T, XFP, SFP+ and CX4 connectors are available. 

Sans Digital recommends the use of enterprise hard drives when in use with any RAID controller applications. Standard desktop or green desktop drive may not be supported and may compromise RAID system stability and performance.
