High Performance, iSCSI RAID Storage


High Performance, iSCSI RAID Storage

Designed and developed for the most demanding video surveillance installations, the E8 offers unparalleled performance of up to 1900MB/sec when fully loaded with SAS drives and 1500MB/sec with SATA drives. Whether you work with HD or 4K Cameras, the E8/E88 will meet your performance requirements.

E8 Highlights

Our E8-Series offers highly scalable storage, ­specifically designed and developed to meet the need of the most demanding ­mid-range and high-end video surveillance applications.

The E8-Series is based around Fibrenetix high performance ­video streaming chip technology, offering at least 30% higher ­performance than any other product on the market and at least 30% more cameras per storage controller.

The E8-Series with dual 10Gbit iSCSI connection meets the needs of the most demanding surveillance environment with hundreds of video streams and massive storage capacity, combined with long data retention periods, and the smallest possible footprint. Each E8 can service up to 700 Cameras Streams (1080P, 4Mbps), with a storage capacity of up to 10.24 Petabytes per iSCSI controller.

Additional E8 storage systems can be added to the network, ­offering scalability up to hundreds of petabytes, to meet the ­requirements for Homeland Security, Airports and City Centre video surveillance installations.

The 16-bay E88-Series come with dual controllers to enable a fully redundant environment. All connection points and JBOD controllers also have dual controller support. Combined with hot-swap power supplies, fans and hard drives, the E88-Series offers true Enterprise Class High Availability.

E8-Series is also available with dual 16Gbit Fibre Channel host connection.
