The DSN-6210/6510 Series is specially designed for high-availability applications, with its built in redundancy features you can ensure your system is never down. Both the DSN-6210 and DSN-6510 are equipped with redundancy components for major functions, such as dual power supplies and dual fan modules. They also have the option of being equipped with dual redundant RAID controllers and SAS JBOD expansion ports. These hot-pluggable modules make sure the DSN-6210/6510 Series is capable of providing uninterrupted network services. The firmware includes support for different RAID levels, read-only or writable snapshots, Windows VSS, and volume configuration restoration. These advanced features help to reduce and eliminate any system downtime. Also, distinct from other systems in their class, you can upgrade the firmware of the DSN-6210/6510 Series without going offline. The series ensures that firmware images and volume handling are protected by redundant RAID controllers. When one RAID controller is down or disconnected, the other RAID controller takes over its tasks immediately. The volumes and their related services are transferred seamlessly and simultaneously.
Green Energy Savings The DSN-6210/6510 Series are equipped with D-Link Green power-saving features. A hard drive can be the most power-hungry component in a SAN and can cause high operating costs. When properly configured, the auto disk spin down feature can reduce the power consumption of hard drives to a minimum. This not only saves money by conserving power but also prolongs the life of your hard drives. The DSN-6210/6510 Series monitors environmental temperatures to optimize the cooling mechanism and the fan modules respond only when needed. The power supply modules are all 80 PLUS power efficient, providing a more favorable power conversion rate. When combined, these power-saving features help to greatly reduce energy consumption and save the user money in power bills.
Business Value-added Features The optimized IOPS and throughput enable the DSN-6210/6510 Series to provide runtime-critical online services, such as cloud storage, local and remote backup, SQL, Exchange, and high-end surveillance storage. Furthermore, with the iSCSI interface, DSN-6210/6510 Series storage systems are ideal for virtualization environments such as VMWare, Hyper-V, and Citrix.
