Qsan Technology, Inc. released the XCubeSAN 5300 series of enterprise-level block storage array.

Qsan Xcubesan 5300 Series Intro 2210

This standard for enterprise-class storage workloads, it provides simplicity, scalability, and a balance of performance and price. XCubeSAN 5300 is for modern enterprise applications such as mission-critical data centers, HPC, virtualization, or media environments.

Comparable to all-flash array performance

Qsan Xs5300 Series Appliances 2210
The XCubeSAN 5300 series products come in a range of form factors and host connectivity options to include all fully modular and redundant.
This range of SAN’s includes the 2U 26-bay, small form factor XS5326 in both dual active/active and single upgradeable controller. The firm’s host cards allow the XS5300 range to offer flexibility with built-in 8-port 10GbE iSCSI (SFP+) and up to 24 host ports in a dual-controller system, enabling direct connection to multiple hosts without switches. Additional host cards include 32/16Gb FC and 25/10GbE iSCSI options. With the ability to deliver 1.8 million IO/s and 20Gb/s throughput, the XS5300 series can also deliver low latency like an AFA.

Proven simplicity – ‘Set and Forget’ data services

Qsan Xevo Intro 2210

The XS5300 is equipped with the XEVO storage management system, which is designed with intuitive GUI, helping users to save time in storage deployment. It also delivers enterprise storage features including RAID level protection, RAID EE with fast rebuild, thin provisioning, SSD cache, auto tiering. With the help of an intuitive dashboard and reporting system, managers can analyze business usage and monitor storage status in real time.

Powering storage functionality
XS5300 comes with several key features:

  • Advanced RAID level technology
    XEVO supports 15 different RAID levels to provide storage redundancy for additional protection. The global hot spare function enhances RAID protection by automatically replacing the failed disks and starting the rebuild process without the user intervention.

  • Storage efficiency  
    Company’s thin provisioning technology is built-in in all the firm’s products, allowing users to allocate disk storage space in a flexible manner based on the minimum space required. Optional SSD cache and auto tiering boost performance by assigning frequently accessed data to SSDs.

  • Backup features
    To protect against data loss and downtime events, XEVO provides array-based backup functions including local backup and remote replication. Based on snapshot technology, a solid safety net for DR can be built to meet the required RPO and RTO.

  • New data experience
    XEVO simplifies the complex IT process from construction to maintenance. QSLife is a disk drive analyzer to help the user keep an eye on the health of drives. QReport analyzes business usage and generate reports to the administrator to determine how to deal with system exceptions, thereby avoiding the risk of data corruption.

  • Virtualization ready
    Verified with VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V certified, XEVO is a fast storage system that allows the user to deploy a low-latency and high-performance virtualization environment to expand their business.

  • Scale-up solution
    The XS5300 provides scale-up capabilities by connecting XCubeDAS or 3rd-party expansion units with up to 546 disk drives or 16.7PB raw capacity for future data growth.

  • Cache-to-flash memory protection
    It now offers battery-free cache backup, but instead uses compact flash and super-capacitors that have advantages over batteries to protect cached data during power outages.

Performance and price balance for advanced applications
Built with interoperability for the popular OS, the XS5300 series is for HPC needs, reducing capital expenditure and achieving maximum efficiency. Moreover, it offers performance.
