  • ASIC400 architecture that supports hardware RAID 5 and RAID 6 engine
  • Sustained RAID5 Read/Write at 658/460 MB/sec.
  • Sustained RAID6 Read/Write at 651/411 MB/sec.
  • Embedded RAIDWatch software for effortless RAID management


  • Multiple arrays configurable with dedicated or global hot spares
  • RAID levels supported: RAID 0, 1 (0+1), 3, 5, 6, 10, 30, 50, 60, and NRAID
  • Online expansion by:
  • Adding new drives
  • Copying and replacing drives with drives of larger capacity
  • Automatic background rebuilds

Infortrend Smart Technologies

Derived from more than ten years experience in RAID storage design, Infortrend's innovative firmware delivers Smart technologies that provide enhanced storage solutions for every customer environment, from small organizations to large enterprises. These technologies enhance I/O processing, drive handling, and system management.


IOSmart allows for the flexible configuration of logical drives, logical volumes and logical partitions and ensures instant RAID availability via background logical drive initialization. Fibre loops' load balancing is provided within the subsystem. The firmware's embedded intelligent algorithms, such as Adaptive Write Policy and Guaranteed Latency I/O, improve sequential write performance and ensure the fast and continuous flow of data.


The DrvSmart utility provides an easy way to store data while keeping it safe. One of the main DrvSmart functions, Media Scan, retrieves data from degraded or damaged hard drives and handles low quality drives in both the degraded mode and during the rebuild process. Other DrvSmart features include disk cloning, drive roaming, SMART, transparent resetting of non-responsive hard drives, and RAID parity update tracking and recovery.


SysSmart combines enclosure monitoring and firmware management capabilities in order to minimize the chance of down time caused by hardware failures. The Auto data protection mechanisms are developed to ensure data safety. Other SysSmart functions include the event-triggered and the various monitoring utilities and monitoring approaches combined with the powerful RAIDWatch manager. Component status, voltage and temperature readings, and system events are instantly revealed through the manager's graphical interface.



  • Two (2) FC ports, each using a short-wavelength adapter
  • Two (2) COM ports on the controller module for RS-232C serial port (38400, n, 8, 1) and UPS support
  • One (1) 10/100BaseT Ethernet port on the controller module

Power Supply Module

  • Two (2) redundant, hot-swappable power supplies with PFC
  • Input 100VAC~240 VAC with 530W PFC (auto-switching)
  • 47 to 63Hz
