DNF Storage Intros SASmaster

HAYWARD, Calif. -- Dynamic Network Factory, Inc. (DNF), a leading maker of high-performance network attached storage (NAS), storage area networks (SANs), RAID and iSCSI systems, today introduced the
SASmaster(tm) product family, a new line of scalable SAS-to-SAS and SATA-to-SAS RAID arrays that provide advanced data throughput and superior bandwidth to meet the storage demands of the most data-intensive environments. DNF has also announced that it has added 1TB SATA drive support to its Enterprise F12-HA RAID subsystems and at the same time expanded its overall Enterprise RAID product line with additional SAS-to-Fibre Channel arrays.

Now available, the new SASmaster product line features three models including the SASmaster 12sz, the SASmaster 16sz and the SASmaster 16sz-HA (high availability). The SASmaster 12sz supports 12 hot-swappable drives, while the other two models support 16 hot-swappable drives each. In addition, each model supports up to three expansion arrays to attain capacities of up to 64TB.

"With the option to use SAS for both the host and drive interface, SASmaster demonstrates DNF's commitment to supporting customers' ongoing demands for higher capacity and greater performance," said Mo Tahmasebi, CEO of DNF. "By offering our customers more drive flexibility, we are giving them the freedom to use the types of drives that best suit their application and performance needs, along with the ability to implement storage tiering in a single array."
