Dynamic Network Factory Announces Enterprise Series RAID Servers

Dynamic Network Factory (Hayward, Calif., www.dynamicnetworkfactory.com) has today announced the introduction of its Enterprise Series, a line of RAID servers priced under $5,000.

The Enterprise Disk Array is designed to give data the security and performance of hardware RAID by combining the high quality of today's RAID servers as well as the ease of Plug & Play. The Enterprise Series also provides a step-by-step setup program that avoids the complications of time-consuming operations procedures. By connecting to a host server via a SCSI connector and utilizing an onboard microprocessor, the Enterprise Disk Array is reported as giving data the security and performance of hardware RAID.

The Enterprise Series uses an auto rebuild power supply with alarm, reset and load sharing. Interface supports fast- and ultra-wide SCSI host channels, with a data transfer rate of up to 40MB provided. The Series allows a hard disk to be used as a hot standby disk. When a hard disk error occurs on one of the RAID drives, this online hot spare disk automatically replaces the failed disk drive.

"Hot swap" parts can also be removed and installed without interrupting data access while the Enterprise is on. The "hot swap" parts include the hard disk drives, redundant power supply units and cooling fans. The Enterprise RAID server is compatible with platforms such as Windows 9.x, NT, Novell, Unix and Mac. --Brian Ploskina, Assistant Editor
