StorageTek BladeStore B150 Disk Array

Technical Support, Maintenance and Repair Services

The StorageTek BladeStore B150 Disk Array System is the first in StorageTek’s B-Series disk array family. BladeStore uses Sun’s Intelligent BladeStore Architecture (IBA) to band together multiple ATA disks on a single blade and stripes data across them to achieve high performance, flexibility and large storage density. Fibre Channel connectivity and an enterprise-class RAID controller help the B150 deliver 6.25 terabytes to 150 terabytes of storage at a fraction of the cost of traditional disk-based storage. BladeStore offers seamless integration with all major open system O/S platforms. It is fully SAN capable and supported in direct host attach environments.

The B150 software allows you to perform administrative tasks, including configuration, re-configuration, expansion, maintenance and tuning, with no system downtime and no interruption to system I/O, from any location on the network – regardless of host or client platform. With the storage partitioning feature, a single BladeStore system can be logically partitioned and shared with as many as 64 hosts in your SAN environment. BladeStore incorporates features found in most enterprise-class disk subsystems, such as redundant, hot-swappable power modules and cooling fans. An enterprise-class RAID controller provides for complete data protection capabilities.
