The XCubeSAN XS1200 series is the newest of the XCubeSAN Series available from QSAN. It is an active-active dual controller SAN (Storage Area Network) storage system series, supporting both iSCSI IP-SAN and FC-SAN with high performance. Additionally, it simplifies the SAN deployment in the IT infrastructure, combining enterprise essential features such as thin provisioning, SSD read/write cache, auto tiering, snapshot, local volume clone, remote replication, scalable to PB level capacity, etc., in one box.
With Intel D1500 dual processor power, DDR4 system memory, cutting edge 12Gb SAS 3.0 technology, onboard high-speed 10GbE LAN ports and the latest QSAN SANOS 4.0 (SAN Operating System v4.0), mind blowing performance, high reliability, unparalleled scalability, XS1200 products are suitable for SMB storage requirements.
- XS1224: 4U 24-bay, LFF (Large Form Factor)
- XS1216: 3U 16-bay, LFF
- XS1212: 2U 12-bay, LFF
- XS1226: 2U 26-bay, SFF (Small Form Factor)
SANOS 4.0 is QSAN’s proprietary SAN storage operating system. SANOS 4.0 is equipped with a refreshingly simple to use web GUI and easily deployable into any infrastructure. Based on the Linux kernel, SANOS delivers comprehensive storage functionality including advanced storage management, complete RAID level protection, fast RAID rebuild, storage pool migration, thin provisioning, SSD cache, auto-tiering, snapshot, data backup & disaster recovery, virtualization support, performance monitoring, scale-up support, and more.
In the event of power loss, the I/O cache data stored in volatile memory will be lost. This can cause data inconsistencies especially in database applications. The XS1200 series can provide an optional Cache-to-Flash memory protection function that will safely transfer the memory cache data to a non-volatile flash device for permanent preservation. The optional Cache-to-Flash module comes with an M.2 flash module and either a BBM (Battery Backup Module) or an SCM (Super Capacitor Module).
With proven 99.999% high availability and reliability, the dual-active controller storage system with multipath environment can sustain multiple failures and keep data alive. This is important for mission-critical applications. The plan for high availability also includes data backup inside the storage system and between your centralized datacenter as well as remote and branch offices. Our QClone (Local Volume Clone) and QRreplica (Remote Replication) are the solutions which we provide.
QClone is used to make a duplicate copy of a volume in the same storage pool as well as in a separate storage pool within the same enclosure. QRreplica lets you asynchronously replicate data volumes and reservation snapshots between primary and remote locations. These features enable centralized backup and disaster recovery on a per-volume basis and leverage application integrated snapshots for faster recovery.
