Next Gen Hybrid Flash Storage for SMB Workloads

Taipei City, Taiwan – Jun. 15th, 2022 –
QSAN Technology, Inc., a global leading brand in storage solutions, today released the new XCubeSAN 3300 series of entry-level block storage arrays optimized for budget-sensitive SAN environments with a focus on outstanding performance, modern simplicity, and affordability to meet SMB workloads. XCubeSAN 3300 is ideal for modern enterprise applications such as virtualization, media editing, large scale surveillance, and backup.

Leading Density with Uncompromised Performance

The XCubeSAN 3300 series products come in a wide range of form factors and host connectivity options to include all fully modular and redundant features. The XS3300 range of SAN’s includes the industry leading density 2U 26-bay, small form factor XS3326 in both dual active / active and single upgradeable controller. QSAN’s host cards allow the XS3300 range to offer great flexibility with built-in 8-port 10 GbE iSCSI and up to 24 host ports in a dual-controller system, enabling direct connection to multiple hosts without switches. Additional host cards include 32 Gb / 16 Gb Fibre Channel and 25 GbE / 10 GbE iSCSI options. With the ability to deliver 1.3M IOPS and 12.8 Gb/s throughput, the new QSAN XS3300 is faster than the previous generation and has enough horsepower for even the most demanding workloads.

Proven Simplicity - "Set and Forget" Data Services

The XS3300 is equipped with the new XEVO storage management system, which is designed with intuitive GUI, helping users to save considerable time in  storage deployment. XEVO also delivers enterprise storage features including complete RAID level protection, RAID EE with fast rebuild, thin provisioning, SSD cache, auto tiering, and more. With the help of an intuitive dashboard and reporting system, managers can analyze business usage and monitor storage status in real time.

Powering Storage Functionality

QSAN’s XS3300 comes with several key features:

  • Advanced RAID Level Technology

    XEVO supports 15 different RAID levels to provide storage redundancy for additional protection. The global hot spare function enhances RAID protection by automatically replacing the failed disks and starting the rebuild process without the user intervention.

  • Storage Efficiency

    QSAN’s efficient thin provisioning technology is built-in in all QSAN products, allowing users to allocate disk storage space in a flexible manner based on the minimum space required. Optional SSD cache and auto tiering boost performance by assigning frequently accessed data to SSDs.

  • Backup Features

    To protect against data loss and downtime events, XEVO provides complete array based backup functions including local backup and remote replication. Based on snapshot technology, a solid safety net for disaster recovery can be built to meet the required RPO and RTO.

  • Brand New Data Experience

    XEVO simplifies the complex IT process from construction to maintenance. QSLife is an intelligent disk drive analyzer to help the user keep an eye on the health of drives. QReport analyzes business usage and generate reports to the administrator to determine how to deal with system exceptions, thereby avoiding the risk of data corruption.

  • Virtualization Ready

    Verified with VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V certified, XEVO is a convenient and fast storage system that allows the user to deploy a low-latency and high-performance virtualization environment to expand their  business.

  • Scale-up Solution

    The XS3300 provides  massive scale-up capabilities by connecting XCubeDAS or 3rd-party expansion units with up to 546 disk drives or 16.7 PB raw capacity for future data growth.

  • Cache-to-Flash Memory Protection

    The XS3300 now offers battery-free cache backup, but instead uses compact flash and supercapacitors that have advantages over batteries to protect cached data during power outages.

Optimize Price and Performance for SMB Workloads

Built with interoperability for the most popular operating systems, the XS3300 series is a perfect solution for all SMB primary and secondary storage demands for  reducing both capital expenditure and achieving  maximum efficiency. Moreover, the XS3300 series provides overwhelming performance, thanks to QSAN’s revolutionary technology. Click here for more information on XS3300.
