High Density Cloud Fibre SAN: CEI-864F / CEI-864FD

The CAEN CEI-864F Fibre Channel RAID array is a High-Density Storage product built for huge data storage applications, data center or cloud computing. The CEI-864F RAID features 16Gb FC-AL host performance to increase system efficiency and performance. It features high capacity expansion, with 64 hot-swappable SAS2/SATA3 hard disk drive bays in a 19-inch 4U rackmount unit, scaling to a maximum storage capacity in the terabyte range. The CEI-864F also supports optional dual controllers which provide better fault tolerance and higher reliability of system operation.

Engineered to meet stringent demands for continuous availability, CEI-864F 16Gb/s FC-AL RAID array spotlights a brand-new 1.2GHz Dual Core RAID-On-Chip processorGeneration3 PCI-E internal busDDR3 cache, completely cableless SAS backplane-based design with SES capabilities.

Low service and integration costs are assured by the CAEN Eng’s cableless design, dual redundant hot-swappable power supplies with two independent power inputs, turbo cooling fans, and embedded RAID controller. Three year warranty comes standard with every Fibre Channel array and covers all components.
