The SA2U-12EHP scales to support up to 108 mixed SAS/SATA disk drives, and up to 81 TBs with 750 GB SATA disk drives, yet offers a small 2U high footprint for high installed density. The SA2U-12EHP offers enhanced processing power, providing more than 1.6 GB/second read and 1.3 GB/second write throughput and 150,000 IOPS. This extreme performance can drive application performance to new heights in a variety of rugged environments.

The SA2U-12EHP features four 4Gb Fibre Channel host ports per controller, with 1GB of mirrored cache per controller; offering up to a total of eight 4Gb Fibre Channel connections per SA2U-12EHP subsystem, and supports SAN, Switchless-SAN(TM) or DAS host connect configurations. Additionally, the product supports multiple redundant paths for clustered server environments.

The SA2U-12EHP offers maximum configuration flexibility, enabling customers to freely mix SAS/SATA drives within the same system, and add JBODs to support up to 108 disk drives in a fully configured system.
