XCubeDAS XD5300 series adopts the latest 12Gb SAS expander and is designed for commodity servers seeking for storage expansion solutions. XD5300 series is built on top of 12Gb SAS 3.0 technology inside out. SAS 3.0 doubles data transfer rate than SAS 2.0 and is compatible with SAS 2.0. All your original investments of 6Gb SAS drives are well protected. Besides, XD5300 series comes with high availability support for cluster servers running mission critical applications.
Next Generation Storage Qsan XCube DAS XD5300 12G SAS DAS systems are designed for host servers easy capacity expanding, high availability, non-stop services, application demanding high throughput, and flexible storage planning with cost effectiveness.
Dual Active High Availability Design
The XCube DAS XD5300 DAS systems offer fully redundant components for all major functions, including dual controllers, power supplies, fan modules, host ports, and expansion ports. Besides hot swappable components,
The XD5300 is able to upgrade firmware without any sy stem down time and balancing IO loading through multiple paths and dual controllers.
Performance and Flexibility
The XCube DAS XD5300 series offers a smart and elastic runtime configuration of the 10x 12G SAS wide ports with three topologies support, and allows IT managers fully utilizing the 480 Gb/s data bandwidth per system for various applications
.The XD5300 also offers various enclosure options, including small form factor 2U 26 bays, large form factor 2U 12 bays,
3U 16 bays, 4U 24 bays, and the highest density solution 4U 75 bays. Qsan is partner with major hard d
rive vendors and fully support the latest hard drives, including SAS, SATA, and SSDs. Without any hard drive bundle, IT administrators can
choose the best applicable hard drives.
Design for High Performance Requirement
The XD5300 solutions set a new storage standard for direct-attached storage and expansion systems. Offering 20,000 MB/s throughput, 480Gb/s data bandwidth, 10x runtime configurable 12G SAS wide ports, and multiple enclosure options,
this series is ideal for video editing, high performance computing (HPC), cloud storage, streaming, broadcasting, virtualization, and datacenters.
The XCube DAS XD5300 series is designed for both direct attached (DAS) to servers and as expansion systems to Qsan
StoreCube and DataCube storage sy
stems. The XD5300 series provides complete compatibility support of HBA and RAID cards.
The XD5300 systems are built with fully redundant and hot swap components. The software ensures there is “No Single
Point of Failure” with multiple paths, load balancing, and failover functions.
Full Range and Highest Density HA Enclosures
Besides standard large form factor 2U 12 bays, 3U 16 bays, and 4U 24 bays, the XD5300 series offer the worldwide highest density and high availability (HA) dual controller model 75 bays in 4U enclosure. With 8TB hard drive installation;the total raw capacity is up to 600TB per enclosure, up to 3.5PB per system, and providing 150TB per rack unit. For the small form factor, XD5300 2U 26 bays enclosure also support more hard drives than others.
Versatile Topologies and Runtime Configuration
The XD5300 features all 12G SAS topologies and per mutations of all host and expansion port configurations.
The XD5300 series supports all 12G SAS topologies, including Cascade, Reverse, and Tree.
The XD5300 controller’s host and expansion ports can be configured during runtime for different applications and
environment requirements. 5 In, 4 In /1 Out, and 3 In /2 Out configurations are recommended.
Easy Management and Wake-on-Cable
All the XD5300 components are field replaceable module, which reduces the installation effort to the minimal.
The systems also support Wake-on-Cable and command line, which allow IT managers completely control of the storage
systems and agile configuration of power management.
The XD5300 firmware is well designed for energy saving. The booting sequence is optimized for every componentto avoid any power surge and unnecessary energy waste, especially the hard drive current surge during booting and after blackout reboot.
The XD5300 enclosure management procedure monitors and controls system temperature with Qsan optimized cooling mechanism. The 80 PLUS Platinum power supplies offer 94% efficiency at 50% loading and 90% efficiency at 20% loading. In virtue of the reduction of overall power consumption, the advanced cooling, and the energy-efficient power supplies, the unnecessary power cost is decreased greatly.
