The E18X Series is highly flexible supporting multiple drive types and protocols for administrators needing a single system to support varying workloads. SATA/SAS/SSD can be used together to support both capacity and performance driven applications. I/O ports include 8Gb FC, 1Gb or 10Gb iSCSI, or 24Gb SASX4. With dual raid engines per controller, the E18X Series delivers blazing wire-speed throughput, high IOPS, and array-based snapshots and asynchronous replication. The active/active dual controller configuration provides twice the I/O ports and increases system performance.
