Performance

With Qsan's latest hardware architecture design plus powerful Intel® C5500/C3500 series processor, P600Q can top the chart with 780K IOPs and 4000MB/s throughput. The best breed of its kind! Stability and performance are the mottos we live up to. P600Q can definitely help you deliver more business outputs with less hardware due to consolidation and reduce your energy footprint significantly.

Applications

With much wider pipes for data transmission, you can stretch out to more value-added and profitable applications. Users can install up to 128 OSes with P600Q system through the Boot-from-SAN feature. P600Q is ideal for the following applications.

  1. Server virtualization : vMotion, clustering
  2. Network convergence in data centers
  3. Cloud computing storage
  4. VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) applications
  5. Mission critical applications : transaction processing, email, database...etc
  6. Video editing & post processing
  7. IP-based surveillance system : casinos, hospitals, and airports
  8. High performance computing : blade server, medical imaging, astrophysics, meteorology, and oil applications

High Availability

P600Q iSCSI system is specially designed for high availability applications. The P600Q has fully redundant components including redundant RAID controllers, power supplies, fan modules, battery backup modules and SAS JBOD expansion ports. All of these components are hot-swappable to create a high availability platform and provide non-stop services. Special features in firmware are RAID 6, 60 support, QSnap writable snapshot, Windows VSS support, and volume configuration restoration. All these features are designed to add an extra layer of protection to your valuable data. To raise the bar higher, P600Q can upgrade firmware without system down time. Both firmware image and volume handling are well protected by the redundant RAID controllers. When one RAID controller is down or disconnected, the other RAID controller will take over all tasks immediately and seamlessly.

Environmental

All P600Q systems are equipped with Qsan’s default green features for power saving. In most cases, the hard drives consume most power. With the auto disk spin down feature and proper configuration, the power consumption of hard drives can be reduced to a minimum, and users will not even notice this feature. P600Q monitors the environment temperature for cooling mechanism and the fan modules respond accordingly. The power supply modules are all 80 PLUS power efficient for better power converting rate. In virtue of the reduction of hard drive power consumption, the advanced cooling mechanism, and the energy-efficient power supplies, the unnecessary power cost is decreased greatly.
