XCubeSAN XS3200 系列

 為企業入門級設計的高性能 SAN 系統


The Next Generation SAN Storage

The XCubeSAN XS3200 series is the newest generation of SAN systems available from QSAN. It is an active-active dual controller SAN (Storage Area Network) storage system series, supporting both iSCSI IP-SAN and FC-SAN with ultra-high performance. Additionally, it simplifies the SAN deployment in the IT infrastructure, combining enterprise-essential features such as thin provisioning, SSD read/write cache, auto tiering, snapshot, local volume clone, remote replication, scalable to PB level capacity, etc. in one box.

With blazing fast Intel D1500 quad processor power, DDR4 system memory, cutting edge 12Gb SAS 3.0 technology, onboard high speed 10GbE LAN ports and the latest QSAN SANOS 4.0 (SAN Operating System v4.0), mind blowing performance, high reliability, unparalleled scalability,  the XS3200 products are suitable for Enterprise entry-level and SMB storage requirements.

Wide Ranging Product Portfolio

The XS3200 series features a wide range of form factors including:
  • XS3224: 4U 24-bay, LFF (Large Form Factor)
  • XS3216: 3U 16-bay, LFF
  • XS3212: 2U 12-bay, LFF
  • XS3226: 2U 26-bay, SFF (Small Form Factor)

Dual-Active Design

The XS3200 series features a Dual-Active controller architecture. Both controllers concurrently provide storage services in real time. Active-Active architecture doubles the available host bandwidth and cache-hit ratio which ensures there is no wasted resource in the system. If one controller fails, the other controller can transparently seamlessly take over all storage services. In addition to storage services, management services can be transparently passed to the secondary controller.

Ultra-high Performance

With its all-new hardware architecture and leveraging Intel® processor, 12Gb SAS 3.0 backplane, built-in 10GbE LAN, and the finely-tuned SANOS 4.0’s performance, the XS3200 series can deliver an astounding 12,000MB/s1 sequential read and 8,000MB/s1 sequential write in throughput and over 1.1 million2 sequential IOPS.

XS3226, SFF 2U26
 Design for All-flash Storage

QSAN XS3226 model (2.5” 2U 26-bay) is the industry’s first high-density all flash/low power SAN storage. It has accelerated performance, consolidated space, and two more storage bays (up to 8% more capacity) than the popular 2U 24-bay products available on the market. This can further lower the cost per TB, minimize IT rack space, and generate a smaller and greener footprint.

High Availability with No Single Point-of-Failure

The XS3200 series is a proven high-availability SAN storage system. All of the critical components in the XS3200 series are hot pluggable and designed with full redundancy. Additionally, dual-active controller design and automatic failover/failback mechanism, cache mirroring through NTB (Non-Transparent Bridge) bus to achieve Active-Active HA functionality allows the XS3200 series to withstand multiple component failures and achieve 99.999% availability.

Latest 12Gb SAS 3.0 Controller

12Gb SAS 3.0 is the latest and fastest drive interface available. It doubles the data transfer rate of SAS 2.0 (6Gb), while remaining backward compatible with 6Gb SAS 2.0 drives. The benefit is that you have the flexibility to purchase less expensive 6Gb SAS drives for initial installation or leverage investment of your existing 6Gb SAS drives and have a peace of mind knowing you can migrate to 12Gb SAS 3.0 by purchasing only new drives.

Built-in High Speed 10GbE LAN Ports

The base unit SAN controller comes with two onboard 10GBASE-T iSCSI ports per controller. The Dual-Active controller XS3200 SAN system has four 10GBASE-T iSCSI ports reaching 40Gb/s bandwidth when you aggregate all ports together. This base unit SAN system comes ready to support a variety of applications including data sharing, backup, video editing, and native virtualization support for VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V.

Multipath Storage Access

MPIO (Multi Path Input Output) is a fault-tolerance and performance enhancement technique which allows the use of more than one path to the volume from the same host server. MPIO is supported in both iSCSI and Fibre Channel protocols.

SANOS 4.0 SAN Operation System

SANOS 4.0 is QSAN’s proprietary SAN storage operating system. SANOS 4.0 is equipped with a refreshingly simple to use web GUI and is easily deployable into any infrastructure. Based on the Linux kernel, SANOS delivers comprehensive storage functionality including advanced storage management, complete RAID level protection, fast RAID rebuild, storage pool migration, thin provisioning, SSD cache, auto-tiering, snapshot, data backup and disaster recovery, virtualization support, performance monitoring, scale-up support, and more.

Advanced RAID Levels Technology

The most efficient and economical data protection method for enterprise and SMBs remains to be RAID technology. Using RAID has two advantages – high availability and better performance. SANOS supports complete RAID levels including RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 30, 50, 60, and N-way mirror. You can choose the appropriate RAID level to best suit the application requirements.

Enterprise Storage Features

QSAN’s in-house developed RAID stack technology has a proven track record of being deployed in enterprise environments for over ten years and is highly trusted by both SMB and enterprise customers globally. The advanced LVM (Logical Volume Manager) builds a solid foundation of disk virtualization to provide complete RAID level protection, enhanced performance, and many other enterprise-level storage features built on top.

Scale-up Solution

The XS3200 SAN provides a massive scale-up capability by connecting either our XD5300 expansion enclosures. It can support up to an impressive 286 disk drives or up to 2.6PB of raw storage space when using 10TB NL-SAS drives.

High Density, High Flexibilty, and High Scalability

The expansion XD5300 series is the best scale up solution for XCubeSAN XS3200 customers. It is available in 4U LFF 24-bay (XD5324D), 3U 16-bay (XD5316D), 2U 12-bay (XD5312D), and the world’s first 2U SFF 26-bay (XD5326D). These can support up to ten expansion enclosures. For ultimate flexibility, there is no restriction on mixing different form factors of expansion enclosures together. Users can choose different form factors of expansion enclosures in accordance with their needs and budget.

Modular I/O Ports for iSCSI SAN and Fibre Channel SAN

Each XS3200 SAN controller has two host card slots that can be configured as iSCSI SAN, Fibre Channel, or a mix of both. There are various types of optional host cards available to match your specific need, including 16Gb Fibre Channel, 10GbE iSCSI, and 1GbE iSCSI. You can choose the appropriate host card for your initial requirement and as your business grows you can add extra host cards to enhance system connectivity.
In dual controller configurations, the system can support up to 20 ports of 10GbE iSCSI or 8 ports of 16Gb FC connectivity3. Both 10GbE iSCSI with SFP+ interface and 10GBASE-T interface can coexist and deliver concurrent data services and maximize uptime. Utilizing these numerous ports, you can cost-effectively connect multiple host servers directly to the XS5200 series without using an FC switch or Ethernet switch.

Cache-to-Flash Memory Protection Technology

In the event of power loss, the I/O cache data stored in volatile memory will be lost. This can cause data inconsistencies, especially in database applications. The XS3200 series can provide an optional Cache-to-Flash memory protection function that will safely transfer the memory cache data to a non-volatile flash device for permanent preservation. The optional Cache-to-Flash module comes with an M.2 flash module and either a BBM (Battery Backup Module) or an SCM (Super Capacitor Module).

Data Backup & Disaster Recovery

With proven 99.999% high availability and reliability, the dual-active controller storage system with multipath environment can sustain multiple failures and keep data alive. This is important for mission-critical applications. The plan for high availability also includes data backup inside the storage system and between your centralized datacenter as well as remote and branch offices. Our QClone (Local Volume Clone) and QRreplica (Remote Replication) are the solutions which we provide.
QClone is used to make a duplicate copy of a volume in the same storage pool as well as in a separate storage pool within the same enclosure. QRreplica lets you asynchronously replicate data volumes and reservation snapshots between primary and remote locations. These features enable centralized backup and disaster recovery on a per-volume basis and leverage application integrated snapshots for faster recovery.
