High performance enterprise-level storage architecture
Dual active-active controller modules are internally connected using high performance PCIe Gen2 and delivered in an industry standard Storage Bridge Bay (SBB) 2.0 compliant package. Hosts connect to VTrak E630f through quad 8 Gb/s FC ports per controller, giving users a staggering 6.4 GB/s of bandwidth to their stored data.

Better uptime and reliability
Built upon Intel’s next generation storage platform, the Intel Xeon processor C5500/C3500 series with the Intel 3420 chipset, the Promise VTrak E630f is equipped with the horsepower to handle the rigorous demands of today’s enterprise environments. Dual power supplies/cooling units come standard, to ensure better uptime and reliability.

Power efficiency
VTrak E630f utilizes environmentally-friendly production methods and materials and are designed with high-efficiency in mind. Powered by 80Plus Bronze certified power supplies that offer up to 85% power efficiency, VTrak E630f improves TCO by conserving power, reducing heat output and improving cooling costs. Additionally, the Promise GreenRAID initiative includes advanced power management support for hard disk drives, providing up to 65% energy savings.

Your data is safe with Vtrak
Dual active-active 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel controller modules with cache mirroring over a high-speed PCIe Gen 2 link allow for redundant data paths to ensure data availability, while dual power supply units, battery backed cache, and intelligent cache management strategies are in place to minimize downtime and protect user data. Hardened controller fail-over strategies, autonomous healing technologies like predictive data migration, along with robust RAID 5 and RAID 6 algorithms work together to improve system fault tolerance capabilities and assist in keeping continuous data access.

Edit & play back video faster than ever
A faster processor, faster FC ports, and more memory is just the beginning. Enhanced cached mirroring design, auto-regeneration of data to mitigate frame drops and optimized disk access all add up to blazing performance for broadcast and editing environments.The VTrak E630f optimizes performance to enable media professionals to increase productivity by up to 2.5 times over the previous generation VTrak, delivering better performance.

Powerful browser-based management GUI WebPAM PROe
Designed with simplicity in mind, the all-new WebPAM PROe takes VTrak storage management to a new level. It includes: automatic configurations tuned for common applications, non-disruptive software updates, power savings scheduler, performance and power monitoring statistics, drag-and-drop LUN mapping/masking and much more. Everything you need is built in, just log in through Safari on your Mac or iPad. VTrak E630f enables enterprise-class management capabilities by supporting the latest in SNMP and CIM standards to work with popular enterprise monitoring software packages. In addition, for those users needing to propagate similar configurations over multiple RAID subsystems, WebPAM PROe has functionality to import configurations with just a few clicks of the mouse.
