AegisSAN LX F600Q-D424 & F600Q-S424 8G FC 6G SAS 4U24 SAN System  

Provide Great Performance & Availability for Enterprises
AegisSAN LX F600Q, boasting Intel Xeon processors, is an 8Gb Fibre Channel, 6G SAS high availability RAID system offering high performance and supporting up to 256 SAS & SATA drives. It's equipped with four 8Gb fibre channel ports and two 1Gb iSCSI ports. Providing high availability, frame-lossless characteristics and outstanding performance, AegisSAN LX F600Q best suits applications like video editing, video streaming, broadcasting, and highly virtualized environments.
Dual active RAID controllers, redundant power supplies, fan modules, and battery backup modules as well as JBOD expansion – all these included in Qsan's F600Q make the Fibre Channel RAID storage the best high-end system.
For better data protection, the top-notch disk array offers copy-on-write snapshot (QSnap), remote replication (QReplica), and battery backup module (BBM) features. It also delivers multiple paths and load balancing functions such as MPIO, MC/S, Trunking, and LACP to better guarantee the reliability and a robust storage environment.

F600Q 8G FC system is specially designed for high availability applications. The F600Q has fully redundant components including redundant RAID controllers, power supplies, fan modules, battery backup modules and SAS JBOD expansion ports. All of these components are hot-swappable to create a high availability platform and provide non-stop services. Special features in firmware are RAID 6, 60 support, QSnap writable snapshot, Windows VSS support, volume cloning, QReplica remote replication, and volume configuration restoration. All these features are designed to add an extra layer of protection to your valuable data. To raise the bar higher, F600Q can upgrade firmware without system down time. Both firmware image and volume handling are well protected by the redundant RAID controllers. When one RAID controller is down or disconnected, the other RAID controller will take over all tasks immediately and seamlessly.

The F600Q systems are built-in with Qsan’s highly reliable data protection features, from writeable snapshot, volume cloning, to remote replication. Your valuable data can be easily safeguarded and synchronized locally and remotely. In case of accidents, data corruption, virus, and even disasters, the services and applications can be recovered in a very short time.

The F600Q’s powerful RAID controllers provide much higher IOPS and throughput than other storage systems within the same segment in the current market. The F600Q can minimize your cost and optimize your investment, simplify storage planning, and integrate more applications.

The optimized IOPS and throughput are capable of providing run-time critical online services, such as Cloud storage, SQL, Exchange, and high-end surveillance storages. Furthermore, with the 8G FC interface, F600Q is ideal for virtualization environments - VMWare, Hyper-V, and Citrix. Users can install up to 126 OSes in the 8G FC system through the Boot-from-SAN feature. With this feature, the multiple OSes/Servers can be managed easily and well protected by Qsan’s advanced data protection features, and there will be no system downtime caused by single point of failure.

All F600Q system has Qsan’s default power saving feature. In most cases, the hard drives consume most power. With the auto disk spin down feature and proper configuration, the power consumption of hard drives can be reduced to a minimum, and users will not even notice this feature. F600Q monitors the environment temperature for cooling mechanism and the fan modules respond accordingly. The power supply modules are all 80 Plus Gold power efficient for better power converting rate. In virtue of the reduction of hard drive power consumption, the advanced cooling mechanism, and the energy-efficient power supplies, we can use energy more efficiently and reduce unnecessary carbon footprint.
