2U-12 Bay IP SAN Storage Dual Redundant Controller

DSN-6120 *(This product has been discontinued)

D-Link’s xStack storage systems are designed for small and medium businesses seeking a costeffective solution. They present a high-availability iSCSI SAN platform that supports services for applications demanding high throughput, scalability, and flexible storage planning.

High Availability

DSN-6110/6120 storage systems are specially designed for high availability applications. They are equipped with fully redundant components for all major functions, such as RAID controllers, power supplies, fan modules, battery backup modules, and SAS JBOD expansion ports. Hot-pluggable, they are capable of providing uninterrupted services. The firmware includes support for RAID 6, 60, read-only or writable snapshot, Windows VSS, and volume configuration restoration. These advanced features help to reduce or eliminate any system downtime. Distinct from other systems in their class, the DSN?6110/6120 are able to upgrade firmware without going offline. Firmware images and volume handling are protected by the redundant RAID controllers. When one RAID controller is down or disconnected, the other RAID controller takes over its tasks immediately. The volumes and their related services are transferred seamlessly and simultaneously.

Outstanding Performance

The DSN-6110/6120 systems have a maximum of 200,000 Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) - higher than other storage systems in their class. Total throughput is a maximum of 900 MB/sec.

Optimum Versatility

The optimized IOPS and throughput are capable of providing runtime-critical online services, such as cloud storage, SQL, Exchange, and high-end surveillance storage. Furthermore, with the iSCSI interface, DSN-6110/6120 storage systems are ideal for virtualization environments such as VMWare, Hyper-V, and Citrix. Users can install up to 32 OSes in the iSCSI system through the Boot-from-SAN feature. Using this feature, the multiple OSes/Servers can be managed easily and protected by D-Link’s advanced data protection features. No system downtime will be caused by a single point of failure.

Green Energy Savings

DSN-6110/6120 storage systems are equipped with D-Link Green features for saving power. A hard drive can be a very power-hungry component in a SAN. When properly configured, the power consumption of hard drives can be reduced to a minimum using the auto disk spin down feature. DSN-6110/6120 storage systems monitor environmental temperatures to optimize the cooling mechanism. The fan modules respond only when needed. The power supply modules are all 80 PLUS power efficient, providing a more favorable power conversion rate. When combined, these power-saving features help to greatly reduce energy consumption.
