DotHill 2530


Easy to set up and manage

The 2530 offers better price/performance for any sized company whether measured by price/IOPS, or price per user. The 2530 storage array offers inexpensive expansion for companies who required external storage directly attached to servers. The 2530 supports Windows, Linux, Solaris, and SuSE operating environments.

The 2530 offers excellent storage performance measuring 90,000 IOPS (same sector cache), superior cache protection, and redundant, hot swappable components.

The entry-level 2530 storage array provides four 3Gb SAS interfaces and supports a wide variety of SAS or SATA-II drives — allowing customers to chose the performance and storage capacity that they need.

The 2530 includes sixteen built-in AssuredSnap™ snapshots which can be scheduled to meet data protection requirements. Sixty four additional snapshots can also be purchased to provide more frequent backups.

An internal SAS interface allows up to five disk enclosures (including the RAID enclosure) delivering a total of 56 drives.
