Poly Suma 10000FF
Product Description
Additional Info
Suma 10000FF/SAN
Fibre Optic Storage for SAN

Product Description
The Polywell Suma 10000FF/SAN utilizes the Mylex® DACFF controller which delivers unparalleled performance and is capable of sustaining disk transfer rates of up to 190 MB/sec from servers to disk. The RAID controller has dual loop host channels, providing redundant connections to give extra fault-tolerance for high-data availability applications. The streamlined architecture provides a separate memory for cache, cache look-up tables, and the CPU instruction store to eliminate bus contention for optimum throughput. The Suma 10000FF/SAN also has four Fibre Channel loops for drive connections. These four channels can also be configured as independent loops to maximize disk connectivity or as two redundant loops for increased availability.
Up to 720GB (10x72GB) per 3U Rack, expandable to 8.6TB per subsystem (120 Fibre Drives).
Built-in SAN Volume Manager via NT system console, support (includes Sun®, HP®, Compaq®/Alpha®, NT®, Win2000 platforms)
Expandable up to 8.6TB without shutdown the system
Support Fibre Channel Server attchments at 480MB/s or faster for all Fibre Channel Hubs and Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop connections.
Support 18, 36, 72 or 180G Ultra-2 and Ultra 160 LVD SCSI Drives (also support future bigger capacity 3.5" drive)
Support 18, 36 or 72G Fibre Channel Drives (also support future bigger capacity 3.5" drive)
Support RAID and stripes on multiple different size drives
Allow dynamic space allocations and configuration for all servers attached while providing future expandability and upgrade-ability.
Efficiently, effectively and concurrently support multiple types of RAID configurations on the same drives (ie, RAID 0, 1, 5, etc)
Efficiently and effectively support multiple(up to 1000) concurrent direct server attachements to the subsystem via FOC (Fibre Optic Cable)
Allow any servers to be bootable from the Suna 12000FF/SAN via the FOC.
Redundant hot-swappable Fans, Power supplies, Controllers and Drives
Efficiently and effectively work with current and future clustering/high-availability applications for NT® 4.0, Windows 2000, LINUX™, Solaris and current UNIX operating systems. Have a migration plan for supporting clustering / high-availability applications with subsequent releases of the aforementioned operating systems.
Efficiently and effectively support automatic unattended rebuild of a failed drive(s) to designated hot-spares.
Efficiently and effectively support comprehensive management of the entire subsystem via software, hardware or both.
Efficiently and effectively support notification via SNMP traps of failed critical components, including drives.
Polywell offers Qlogic or Emulex based Intelligent Host adapters which is capable of I/O processing without burden the CPU of the host server for less than 10%
Polywell offers 72" 40U cabinet which contains the storage subsystem and the drive racks. It can hold up to 13 Suma 10000FF racks per cabinet.
