Promise VTrak J5000 Series

Affordable, Reliable Enterprise Level Storage

The VTrak J5000 Series delivers not only high performance, but an affordable SAS solution with advanced enterprise level reliability and functionality. The four external 12 Gb/s SAS ports per I/O module provide the connectivity for large capacity solutions requiring multiple cascaded JBODS and high bandwidth solutions that require blazing speeds. Fully redundant I/O modules, power supplies and cooling units, combined with a cable-less system design provides exceptional data availability, even during component failures.


Data Center Ready

Backwards compatibility with 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA devices means that users have the ability to deploy 3 Gb/s, 6 Gb/s and 12 Gb/s HDD’s and SSD’s in the J5000 Series. With up to 90% power efficiency improving TCO by conserving power, reducing heat output and improving cooling costs. The internal 12Gb/s SAS expander-based architecture also allows for transparent access to each drive, enabling full utilization of the power management features built into modern hard drives.. The internal 12 Gb/s SAS expander-based architecture also allows for transparent access to each drive , enabling full utilisation of the power management features built in to modern HDD’s.


DataCenter Optimized by Enhanced Performance

The VTrak J5000 Series performs data transfer at incredible speeds, allowing you to optimize your data center. Administrators can deploy with the fastest SAS bus speed with 12Gb/s HDDs or SSDs. The backwards capability does not mean you aren’t able to optimise the full port bandwaidth of 12Gb/s to the host. Flash Arrays allow you to optimise speed for key enterprise apps that require utmost performance. The internal 12Gb/s SAS expander architecture allows for data to transfer with greater redundancy protection.
