Quad Ports iSCSI-to-SAS/SATA RAID 6 Storage System

Rediscover IP-SAN in a Click with VessRAID

SAN with iSCSI for Broader Storage Possibilities
VessRAID 1000i series provides four-port iSCSI capacity using block-level transfers over a network, a faster data throughput compared to file-based data sharing like NAS. iSCSI encapsulates SCSI CDBs into TCP/IP packets where they are used to create a SAN. This proven technology includes a variety of IP-based applications and enables you to leverage existing network infrastructure.?That means IT managers don’t need to install an expensive Fibre Channel fabric to obtain SAN capabilities. With an iSCSI SAN, they can have the consolidated storage space, remote and central management, and the flexibility to increase capacity on-the-fly.?With the introduction of the VessRAID iSCSI series, users can easily scale storage architecture, integrate storage pools, reduce administrative load, and optimize storage utilization for a greater efficiency.

iSCSI in Surveillance
Network Video Recording (NVR) is an IP-based digital video recording system designed to operate 24/7, 365 days a year with non-stop A/V recording. This application demands reliable, robust, consolidated storage with remote management capability. ?VessRAID 1000i series in an IP SAN-based NVR system offers a more cost-effective alternative to the management complexity of a large installed DAS deployment. iSCSI technology encapsulates SCSI CDBs into TCP/IP packets enabling efficient, large block-level file transfers of sequential I/O for archiving and centralized storage management. As a result, you get the benefits of a SAN with the economy and convenience of Ethernet. NVR gives you video surveillance with central management plus consolidated archiving and storage, using proven technologies you already know.

Totally Green Power
VessRAID features advance hardware design by using 80PLUS power supply and allows users to power down the system through power scheduler operation to optimize system power effectiveness and energy efficiency. Power scheduling enables the VessRAID system to do a disk-to-disk backup or restore operation on a user-scheduled basis then returns to standby mode when backup is finished, resulting in a considerable 70% cost savings annually.

One-Plug-Auto-Service (OPAS)
OPAS was designed to reduce maintenance complexity as much as possible. With a simple USB stick plug-in to the system’s USB port, it helps to shorten the turnaround time of conventional system diagnostic flow, and will come with more advanced applications like firmware upgrade, event log history, system setup restore, and array configuration scripts installation as a full service release.

Designed for Cost-Sensitive Business
Current economic conditions worldwide have caused enterprises to either cut their IT budgets or slow down their planned deployment of storage facilities. ?There is a tremendous need of cost-effective yet feature-rich storage solutions, and the Vess family is the right marketing fit at the right time.

Excellent product support by great customer service let down by initial installation problems relating to the rails.
Pros
- simple and great user interface
- seamlessly works with apc UPS without any overheads
- reasonable performance
- great pricing

Likes
- Separate dedicated management interface to iscsi ports
- Great customer service by manufacturer and supplier
- talks to UPS for graceful shutdown
- essential no frills features and able to backup configs

Would have liked
- ipv6 support
- a built in LCD status display or vga out (is it on ? is it awake ? talk to me !!)
- better designed rack rails and user guide
- mini SFP or SFP + GBIC slot

Cons
- poorly designed rack rails
- user guide for mounting instructions is no good
- status lights are not clear


Overall well designed unit with robust technology.If you can afford it - go for enterprise class SATA or SAS drives. Otherwise , just wing it with standard SATA.
