One Stop Systems Announces First 1U PCI Express-Based SATA/SAS RAID Array

Reliability and a Higher Data Transfer Rate Through Multiple Channel Access

One Stop Systems, a provider of PCI Express-based systems and components for the industrial computing market, announces the release of the first 1U PCI Express-based RAID storage system, a robust rack mount system providing 4 hot-swappable SATA II/SAS drives with a total storage capacity of up to 2 terabytes. The RAID system operates from a host PC on either a PCI Express x4 or x8 cable (included) when the PCIe adapter card (also included) is inserted into the host PC’s PCIe x4, x8, or x16 slot. The system supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and JBOD, and Intelligent “multiple logical drive” architecture allows the combination of different RAID levels on one set of disks. Hot-swap ability facilitates the replacement of failed drives and makes this 4-drive storage system suitable for network attached storage (NAS), security and surveillance, disk-to-disk backup and video editing. A 200-watt power supply and four exhaust fans ensure optimal performance.

Disk arrays provide reliability and a higher data transfer rate through multiple channel access. The RAID controller organizes data on the drives and controls the flow of data to and from the host computer. This allows the user to write/read data to the drive array from the host PC at speeds up to 40Gb/s by simply installing the attached PCIe x8 adaptor board into a PCIe slot in the host PC and cabling it to the RAID system.
