3.1Overview

Alnico RAID Series provides a simple, scalable, reliable mass storage solution for today’s fast-growing business world. Exceptional performance, continuous availability, cost-effective, and proven reliability make Alnico the best selection for all small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) and enterprises.
There are some features on Alnico RAID Series but the most notable is supporting advanced and secure RAID-6 technology. RAID 6 enables IT users to recover data in the event of two hard drive failures and provides the highest level of data protection. Alnico RAID Series also make use of modular design and cable-less design concept. Modular design allows easily swapping out faulty parts to shorten downtime, and cable-less design provides users of ease of maintenance. MIS administrators can utilize the most convenient web-based GUI RAID manager to configure and monitor Alnico RAID subsystems with no specific software or patches required.
In short, Alnico RAID Series combines high performance 8 Gbps FC-AL/GbE ISCSII/6Gb SAS host channels with high reliable SAS or cost efficent SATA-II hard disks and simplifies storage setup processes to make a smart choicevfor any kinds of purpose.
