3GEN High Availability vs. Dual Controller 

ServerWare® 3GEN HA(active-to-active)

  • Clustering for hardware Failure
  • 2 or more controllers
  • 2 or more copies of data

Dual Controller

  • Clustering for hardware failure protection
  • Only 1 copy of data Hard Disk failure is 3X higher than controller failure

High Value with unbeatable ROI

Today’s business environment demands innovation and increasing flawless execution in all environments including virtualized computing. With SW-3Gen SH401 series SAN system, you have an ultimate all-in-one storage for handling block based storage, file serving, server consolidation, backup and restoration strategies, replication solutions, regulatory compliance data retention and the integration of NAS and SAN investments.

Packed with enterprise features and protected with a 3 year warranty, SW-3Gen SH401 series delivers unsurpassed value with a price that is lower than all other storage solutions on the market.

High Availability and Advanced Data Protection

All systems include hot swap technology and block level volume cloning software for maximum data protection. By connecting with another SH401 remotely via Gigabit Ethernet ports, backup and restore can be accomplished via our automated file based asynchronous remote mirroring and synchronous/asynchronous block based volume mirroring.

SH401 incorporates SnapBack technology to reduce backup time to minutes; SnapQuick to enable recovery of point-in-time data in minutes. Furthermore, a full suite of optional enterprise software such as Global multi-node clustering (active-active and active-passive), WORM, real time volume encryption, dynamic thin provisiong and block based data de-duplication with projected 70% capacity saving.

Storage Sharing and Access Control

With versatile SW-3Gen SH401 series systems, you can use high performance SAS or large capacity SATA disk drives for optimal performance-cost ratio. On the same system, you can seamlessly consolidate block and file storage. SW-3Gen SH401 series makes this possible by providing native support of the iSCSI, FC, NFS and CIFS storage protocols.
