FREMONT, Calif., 8 April 2010. Elma Electronic Systems in Fremont, Calif., is introducing the 6211 cPCI RAIDStor 6U CompactPCI blade network attached storage (NAS) board for network-centric military, data-intensive, message-processing, and other embedded applications that need high availability and high reliability.

The data storage board can hold as much as 1.2 terabytes in one CompactPCI slot or 2.4 terabytes with two slots. The board provides automatic and transparent cross-network or intra-blade data replication and re-sync for enhanced data security and preservation.

Standard with dual 2.5-inch SATA hard disk drives, the RAIDStor also comes in lower-capacity configurations. Front panel, removable drive canisters with hot swap enable fast time to repair (MTTR). Solid-state drives also can be used for rugged RAID reliability.

The CompactPCI RAIDStor can be arranged in one- or dual-star network topology to provide complete redundancy in network paths as well as port failover services enabled or disabled with one command for continuous system availability.

The CompactPCI RAIDStor is configurable to RAID level 0 (data striping) for increased bandwidth as well as RAID level 1 (data mirroring) or RAID level 5 (distributed parity -- requires dual blade/four drive configuration) for data redundancy.

Users can monitor the blade via a web browser and perform some management functions via SNMP or a serial command line. Each RAIDStor is equipped with one front panel Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port and two ports via the P-zero connector to enable connections to several networks.
