5 Bays iSCSI SAN Array
Industry type:Electronics and communication
Product model number:DSN-1100
D-Link Corporation
award 3

The D-Link® DSN-1100-10 xStack Storage 4x1GbE iSCSI SAN Array provides a smaller, more value-oriented solution for entry-level and SMB customers. The heart of the DSN-1100 is based on the same powerful System-on-a-Chip (SoC) design found in larger arrays such as the DSN-2000/3000 Series of products, but housed in a smaller chassis. Utilizing a 10Gbit iSCSI SoC solution that can handle over 80,000 I/Os per second, the DSN-1100 is capable of supporting 5TBs of raw capacity using 1TB hard drives (and even higher capacity hard drives as they are introduced). The DSN-1100 can easily be implemented as nearline storage or as a supplement to your primary backup and recovery device. This evolutionary advancement in performance is a testament to the tightly integrated xStack Storage architecture and is a sharp contrast to the discrete implementation of competing products.

SAN has been traditionally reserved for Fibre Channel networks until the recent introduction of iSCSI extended this powerful yet simple centralized backend storage system to IP networks. By utilizing existing Ethernet technology, the cost associated with separate host bus adapters and the per-Gigabyte cost for storage is significantly reduced. iSCSI SANs can leverage the Ethernet infrastructure and standards that are already familiar to your IT staff.

The DSN-1100 implements four 1GbE ports that support IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Groups (LAG) for full offload capability. This allows all four ports to be grouped together for up to 425MB/s bandwidth, increasing throughput and redundancy.

The DSN-1100 features five hot swappable Serial ATA (SATA) disk drive bays supporting 5TB raw capacity using 1TB hard drives (and even higher capacity hard drives as they are introduced) in RAID level 0, 1, 1+0 and 5 configurations. You can quickly deploy a SAN using inexpensive SATA disk drives and, depending on your growing storage needs, you can simply add more drives as you go.

In 1986, D Link founder Ken Kao and six colleagues set out on an entrepreneurial venture that would forever change the computer networking industry. D Link was founded under the name Datex Systems. The name D Link takes the leading D from Datex, combining it with the concept of a “link” connecting people. In fact, D Link’s Chinese name roughly translates as “friends networking together.” This concept continues to shape D Link’s brand today. Though founded as a small venture, D Link has since swelled into an international networking giant with over 2,800 employees worldwide. D Link has emerged as a trusted brand with a worldwide reputation for robust and affordable networking solutions, and has renewed its commitment to developing “green” technologies and IPv6 ready hardware which will prepare its customers for an alluring new era of ultimate connectivity.
