VTrak E5000 Series

High Performance, High Availability

The VTrak E5000 Series delivers an affordable high-performance Fibre Channel to SAS storage solution with advanced enterprise level reliability and functionality. With four 16Gb Fibre Channel ports and two 12Gb SAS ports per controller connecting host and storage expansion, the E5000 is perfect for applications requiring huge bandwidth. The E5000 can output 542,100 read IOPs and up to 111,686 write IOPs. It can deliver 12 Gigabyte read and 5.3 Gigabyte write sequential throughput. Fully redundant components such as Active-Active controllers, power supplies, and cooling units provide optimal data availability even during unforeseen circumstances. The VTrak E5000 is truly a full featured enterprise level storage system that can accommodate any size of business environment.

Data Center Ready

Fully compatible with 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA devices, the VTrak E5000 gives users the ability to deploy 6 Gb/s and 12 Gb/s SAS/SATA HDDS and SSDs.  Efficient power supplies provide up to 90% improved power efficiency, improving TCO by conserving power, reducing heat output and lower cooling costs.  The E5000’s flash arrays enable optimized speed for key enterprise applications that need high-speed transfer rates and reduced latency and thanks to its Intel multi-core Broadwell-DE based architecture providing ample processing power to achieve transfer speeds at line rate on both 16Gb Fibre Channel front-end interfaces and 12Gb SAS backend interfaces.

Cloud Ready

As consumers and businesses become more mobile, the need for data access, retrieval, and distribution anywhere at any time means that data must be protected at all times.  The E5000 Series provides the versatility and scale to meet the demands of data centers, hyper scale computing, and high-performance computing that requires flexibility and cost effective tiered storage management.

VMware Ready

Ready to confront any challenge in today’s virtualized IT environment, the VTrak E5000 is certified with VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer, and Microsoft Hyper-V. Additionally, the VTrak E5000 Series supports VMWare VAAI, which reduces resource overhead on VMWare vSphere ESXi hosts. This significantly improves performance for storage-intensive operations like storage cloning, zeroing, and more.
