CHATSWORTH, CALIFORNIA. June 16, 2008.
Dulce Systems continues to expand their high performance RAID storage product offerings with the availability of the PRO FC and PRO FX. A combination of the PRO FC and PRO FXs delivers up to 64TB of storage with the built-in expansion interface. The PRO FC and the PRO FX are supplied pre-loaded with disks, each are capable of housing sixteen 3.5 inch SATA/SAS disk modules in a 3u 19 inch rack mountable configuration. Redundant power supplies are optional.
The high performance PRO FC sports a dual port 4Gb Fibre Channel high performance RAID controller with built-in expansion. The two Fibre Channel ports can be striped together to sustain a data rate of 550MB/sec, more than fast enough for most video intensive applications. Even a single Fibre Channel port can maximize the Fibre Channel interface limit at 370MB/sec sustained; from RAID empty to RAID full.
The PRO FC is SAN Ready. The highly flexible RAID Manager can configure the PRO FC for multiple workstation usage via LUN mapping. There is no need to buy an expensive Fibre Switch if just two workstations are to share the PRO FC. The PRO FC works well with all SAN software and hardware in a larger shared environment.
The PRO FC built-in expander enables a cost effective storage expansion to additional PRO FXs. When more storage is needed, daisy chain a PRO FX to the PRO FC to add as many as 16 additional drives to the array’s capacity. Continue to daisy chain more PRO FXs as the need demands. A total of 3 PRO FXs can be added to one PRO FC, giving a total of up to 64 drives connected to the RAID Controller.
The PRO FC supports RAID 0, 1, 5 and 6 modes - It is Mac, PC and Linux compatible, and works with Apple’s Final Cut Studio, Adobe’s Premiere Pro and other popular video editing and creation tools. The PRO FC also supports the Instant Ready feature eliminating the long initial format time. Additionally, the PRO FC features Ethernet management capabilities with email notification plus a host of other great features.
