D-Link 4x1GbE iSCSI SAN Array, 2U, w/o Drives, with Trays, 8 bay storage unit

Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
Integrated iSCSI System-on-a-Chip (SoC) Solution that can Handle over 80,000 I/Os per Second, Four 1GbE Ports 8TB Capacity with 1TB Hard Drives

The D-Link DSN-2100-10 xStack Storage Area Network (SAN) Array is designed to provide a smaller, more value oriented solution for entry-level and SMB customers. The heart of the DSN-2100-10 SAN Array is based on the same powerful System-on-a-Chip (SoC) design found in larger arrays such as the DSN-3000 series of products, but housed in a smaller chassis. Utilizing a 10Gbit iSCSI SoC solution that can handle over 80,000 I/Os per second and capable of supporting 8TBs of raw capacity using 1TB hard drives (and even higher capacity hard drives as they are introduced), the DSN-2100-10 SAN Array can easily be implemented as nearline storage or as a supplement to your primary backup and recovery device. This evolutionary advancement in performance is a testament to the tightly integrated xStack Storage architecture and is a sharp contrast to the discrete implementation of competing products.

iSCSI for IP Networks
SAN has been traditionally reserved for Fibre Channel networks until the recent introduction of iSCSI that extends this powerful yet simple centralized backend storage system to IP networks. By utilizing existing Ethernet technology, the cost associated with separate host bus adapters and the per-Gigabyte cost for storage is significantly reduced. iSCSI SANs can leverage the Ethernet infrastructure and standards which are quite familiar to your IT

Four 1GbE Interfaces
The DSN-2100-10 SAN Array implements four 1GbE ports and supports IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Groups (LAG) for full offload capability so that all four ports can be grouped together, totaling up to 425MB/s bandwidth, for increased throughput and redundancy.

System-on-a-Chip (SoC) Implementation
By utilizing a SoC design, the DSN-2100-10 SAN Array combines both networking and storage functions into a single specialized Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). The SoC solution combines 10Gbps iSCSI, TCP & IP offload, embedded processors, and storage virtualization firmware onto a single chip. The tight integration of these functions eliminate interoperability, timing, and support issues found in competitive products that offer discrete implementation wherein a chassis, a main motherboard, a RAID storage controller, iSCSI software or controller, network interface cards, and operating system software are chosen separately and then assembled. The DSN-2100-10 SAN Array outperforms these discrete implementations and does so at a lower price point. It also delivers mission critical data quickly with state-of-the-art reliability.
