RAIDdeluxe-CD24 4U

New RAIDdeluxe C series disk arrays with 24 drive bays – 4 U

The RDL-CD24 – 4 U (dual controller) / CS24 – 4 U (single controller) disk array features enormous host performance to increase system efficiency and performance.

The new system are driven by Areca RAID controllers, with 16 Gbit/s Fibre Channel, 12 Gbps SAS or 10 Gbit/s iSCSI host ports.

It features 24 hot-swappable 3.5 LFF / 2.5 SFF 12 Gbps SAS and 6 Gbps SATA hard disk / SSD drive bays in a 19-inch 3U rackmount unit.

RAIDdeluxe is designed to grow with future requirements. To this end, RAIDdeluxe uses only common modules and the RAIDdeluxe enclosure is designed for maximum expandability and flexibility.

By connecting one or more RAIDdeluxe JBODs to the subsystem, additional hot-swappable SAS / SATA hard disk / SSD drives are possible per JBOD – up to a total of 256 devices.

With RAIDdeluxe, the power supply is directly cooled for better airflow. This eliminates pockets of dead air to prevent overheating of the subsystem.

RAIDdeluxe incorporates a cableless design which means fewer connectors are used. Fewer connectors result in better signal stability. In addition, RAIDdeluxe uses high-quality connectors for maximum signal integrity.

Exceptional Manageability:

  • Configuration and monitoring can be managed through the LCD control panel, RS232 port or LAN port
  • The firmware-embedded web browser-based RAID manager allows local or remote access from any standard internet browser via a LAN port
  • The controller also supports API library, so customers can write their own monitoring tool
  • The Single Admin Portal (SAP) monitor utility enables management of multiple RAID units in the same network via a single application
