storage E-Series



Video Server for large datacenter and CCTV solutions

Fibrenetix E8-Series offers highly scalable storage, specifically designed and developed to meet the demanding needs of medium-range to high-end surveillance applications.

The E8-Series is based around Fibrenetix high performance video streaming chip technology, offering at least 30% more performance than any other product in the market and at least 30% more cameras per storage controller.

The E8-Series with dual 10Gbit iSCSI connection has been designed and built to meet surveillance demand for hundreds of video streams and massive storage capacity, with long data retention periods and the smallest possible footprint. Each E8-series can service hundreds of megapixel cameras, with a storage capacity of up to 8 Petabytes per iSCSI controller.

Additional E8 systems can be added

Additional E8 systems can be added to the storage network, offering scalability up to hundreds of Petabytes to meet the requirements for Homeland Security, Airports and City surveillance installations.

E88 systems offer real Enterprise class high availability

The 16-bay E88-Series comes with a dual controller option which enables a fully redundant mode. All connection points and JBOD controllers also have dual controller support. Combined with hot-swap power supplies, fans and hard disk drives, the E88 systems offer real Enterprise class high availability.

E8-Series is also available with dual 16Gbit Fibre Channel host connection.



Features Overview

  • 2x 10Gbit ethernet host connections.
  • 4GB Cache as standard, upgradeable to 8GB.
  • Dual Active/Active RAID controller option (SAS drives only) for maximum fault tolerance.
  • Supports high performance 12Gbit SAS, 6Gbit    SATA-III & Solid-State Disks, pushing transfer rates and reliability to a new level.
  • Selectable RAID levels: JBOD, 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, 30, 50, 60 plus   RAID-6 for the ultimate protection of your valuable data.
  • NEW Firmware and GUI interface, with optional LUN masking capabilities.
  • Optional multi-lane SAS connector for expandability and scalability – add JBOD storage to connect up to 512 HDDs.
  • High-end enterprise E-Series caddy system offers the best protection of hard drives and data, supporting 10K & 15K RPM hard drives.
  • Flexibility to use SAS and SATA drives simultaneously in a single E8 enclosure (single controller only).
  • Powerful dual redundant PSU’s – offering sufficient power to support high performance hard drives and controller.
  • With increased reliability and MTBF (mean time between failures) of critical components ‘Environmentally friendly’ E8 supports industry standard MAID technology (spinning   down drives when not in use), considerably reducing power consumption.
  • Intelligent cooling system continuously adapts to environmental conditions by automatically controlling   the speed of the fans for optimal cooling.
  • Sophisticated monitoring and alert system enabling the system administrator to monitor and receive alerts via onboard Ethernet connection.
