Our industry proven hardware RAID-on-Chip architecture incorporates dedicated ARM based processors and RAID5/6 CRC32 engines with internal DDR3 memory to optimize transfer speeds and accelerate access times. This allows RocketStor 6418AS to work independently and minimize the storage configuration's impact on the host system's resources. Our innovative DV Mode Technology intelligently manages the flow of large data blocks and write-back caching in order to minimize latency and ensure consistent, sustained high-performance transfers for media-rich applications.
Administrators can initialize or schedule RAID verification sessions that check each disk or parity consistency; If any problems are found, the RocketStor 6418AS will immediately rebuild the array to ensure the integrity of your data.
Storage Health Inspector (SHI) proactively maintains the health of the entire storage system by examining each member of an array for failed sectors, and Dynamically Repair or Remap disks on the fly to keep your storage ready and able.
Available Battery Backup Units (BBU) can secure valuable data for up to 72 hours in the event of a power outage or severe non-storage related hardware failure.
The integrated NVRAM with write journaling constantly tracks in-progress writes to preserve the integrity of RAID parity in the event of a system crash or sudden loss of power..
