The AN-824FHS / AN-824FHD are PetaStor’s latest 16Gb Fibre storage systems. The 16Gb FC delivers high performance and greater reliability by doubling throughput of 8Gb FC and providing superior IOPS; therefore, it is ideal for the most demanding applications. The backwards compatibility with existing 8Gb FC storage systems preserves FC infrastructure investments while delivering the ultimate in performance. 16GFC delivers 3200 MB/sec throughput with the ability to deliver twice the throughput of 8Gb FC HBAs, the AN-824FHS / AN-824FHD takes FC storage performance and efficiency to the next level.

The AN-824FHS / AN-824FHD is built on high performance RAID-on-Chip (ROC) 1.2GHz Dual Core storage processor with PCI-Express 3.0 bus architecture, and up to 8Gb DDR3-1866 memory. The robust performance makes AN-824FHS / AN-824FHD a perfect new choice for applications that call for fully-redundancy and high data transfer rate. With JBOD enclosures (SAS Expander) supporting up to 256 SAS/SATA devices connected, AN-824FHS / AN-824FHD is capable of providing over 800TB gigantic storage capacity without sacrificing performance.

The AN-8 Series help enterprises meet the challenge of data growth and protect data from drive failure by providing a high performance RAID solution with advanced enterprise level reliability and functionality at an affordable price.
