StoreWay™ Optima2000i
 • An optimal departmental RAID Storage Array
StoreWay™ Optima2000i
StoreWay™ Optima2000i answers to mid-range market requiring an optimized price/performance ratio. Optima2000i scalable and flexible architecture with a complete software offer satisfies departmental applications in virtualized and non-virtualized environments. Optima2000i high availability allows building business continuity and fits to databases or mailing solutions as well as backup or achiving solutions.
  • Four iSCSI 10Gb/s host connectivity
  • SAS 6Gb/s connectivity to SSD, SAS 15krpm and SATA 7200rpm drives
  • Up to 288 Terabytes (SATA) or 86 Terabytes (SAS) capacity
  • Complete software offer including snapshot, local replication and thin provisioning
  • Eco mode for power consumption minimization with MAID features
  • Support of Solid State Drives (SSD) in the same drawer as SAS and SATA drives

      State of the art technology
    Optima2000i is based on the latest industry-standard technologies with iSCSI 10Gb/s ports offering a performant connectivity to the servers. 6Gb/s SAS disk connectivity doubles the performance to the SAS drives. SSD drives increase random performance per disk while decreasing power consumption.

      Scalability and flexibility
    Optima2000i scalable architecture allows a dynamic capacity growth from 900GB to 288TB and supports the mix of SSD, SAS and SATA drives within a single disk drawer. Dynamic pools allow to add as few as one drive at a time. Dynamic Pools LUNs can be expanded without rebuilding the entire RAID group and make more space available immediately.

      High availability and reliability
    Full redundant architecture with dual active RAID controllers and hot pluggability of all components including drives, fans, power supplies, BBU and controllers, make Optima2000i a high available storage system. High reliability is achieved by single and dual parity RAID (RAID-6, RAID-3 DP or RAID Triple Mirror). Redundant access to data is garanteed by StoreWay Multipath for Windows, Linux or AIX.

      Optimized configuration and energy saving
    Thin Provisioning allows to adapt the disk configuration to the actual capacity required by the applications and adapt the power consumption to the actual needs. Power Saver also saves energy by spinning down the drives non accessed by the application.

      Standard and user-friendly Storage Administration
    Optima2000i Storage Manager is user-friendly, common to all the Optima line, and designed for Windows and Linux environments. In addition to the snapshots, local replication, Thin Provisioning, MAID and WORM features, it allows optimized data relocation from SSD to SAS or SATA drives according to the performance required for the data within the storage array. Performance Management tools allow consolidation of performance data for all Optima of the site from a central control point. A command line interface allows to automate this administration.
