 • Optimized storage for multiprofile data centers
StoreWay™ Bull Optima1500i
Optima1500i is an optimized storage solution for data centers storing multiple profiles data: data bases, messaging, back-up, multimedia. Developed on iSCSI Ethernet standards for server connections and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) standards for disk connections, the system can support high-performance disks and high-capacity disks in the same drawer.
  • Enterprise-Class Disk Subsystem for Ethernet storage networks
  • Partitionable into transactional and backup storage zones
  • Embedded support of RAID6, RAID3 dual parity and Triple Mirror
  • Up to 288 Terabytes (SATA) or 86 Terabytes (SAS) capacity
  • All storage software available: snap, local replication
  • Power consumption minimization by MAID function
    The Optima1500i subsystem, with single or dual active RAID controllers, and the redundant Optima1500i extension are based on industry-standard technologies: Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) associated with the SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) disk interface. This technology mix makes the Optima1500i the ideal solution for small-scale databases and electronic messaging systems, and an effective storage solution for large data volumes such as images and multimedia files. It also functions as a secondary storage or archive device.

      Storage network support based on Ethernet
    In addition to a mono controller a true dual-active model is available. The standard model is carrying 4 iSCSI 1Gb/s ports that are fully connectable into existing Ethernet network infrastructures. This connectivity ensures interoperability with VMware, Windows, Linux and AIX environments and full Storage network support. The embedded system for volume isolation, associated with active-active failover makes Optima1500i a truly interoperable storage solution.

      An Enterprise-Class Solution
    Key element of the Bull StoreWay Optima family, the Optima1500i storage array and its extension are off-line upgradable and fully compatible with the other Optima3000 models. Optima1500i meets both near-line performance and on-line transactional storage requirements. The two controllers are truly dual active allowing efficient load balancing. Associated with the “Worm” function, the disk sleeping mode is key for power saving.

      Excellent reliability
    All components, including the 12 disk drives extensible to 144, cooling, fans, power supplies and storage processors are hot-pluggable. Reliability is tailored to both high-performance and high-capacity disks. Like the rest of the StoreWay range, Optima1500i tolerates double disk failure in RAID6 and also in RAID3 with dual-parity support. Server data access is secured by Storage Path Manager, available for Windows and Linux as well as embedded in VMware. The standard RAID1 is enhanced by a Triple Mirror.

      Standard and User-friendly Storage Administration
    Optima1500i StoreWay Storage Manager Server is designed for Windows and Linux environments in small, decentralized processing centers. The software suite of the Optima1500i is common to the whole line of Optima1500 and 3000 products allowing consolidated management with any Optima and FDA products from one management point. Performance data aggregation could be performed and analyzed easily for all the Optima and FDA products. A storage virtualization feature allows reallocation and data migration.
