About the BlueStor Networked Storage Server:
Targeted to the small to medium enterprises (SMB), multi-client content creation, production and post production markets that have need for Ethernet or Fibre based, high-load applications (shared storage) requiring high sustained throughput, the BlueStor Networked Storage Server is the must-have storage appliance for file serving, digital A/V (Audio/Video) workflow storage, and back up storage. Priced at up to five times less than other enterprise-class offerings, it's available in 16, 32, 48 and 64TB data capacities. Working closely with technology partner euroNAS, JMR has been able to deliver simple, reliable, high performance storage for converged networks enabling businesses to be unlimited in their ability to expand applications to the cloud, virtualized and clustered environments.
The enterprise class BlueStor Networked Storage Server, integrated with the world acclaimed euroNAS OS software, features dual 8-core Xeon CPUs; 32GB of DDR3/1333 MHz memory, expandable to 1000GB; dual 24-port 6GB SAS expanders; dual PCle3.0/6Gb SAS hardware RAID controllers, usually configured for RAID 50 or RAID 60; 16 SAS/SATA RAID disk drives with up to 64TB of native capacity; four (N+1 configured) redundant thermostatically-controlled high-velocity cooling fans and dual 620W (N+1) hot-swappable power supplies; and six 1Gb/s NIC ports or optional Dual/Quad 10GbE network interface. The system has a unique patented modular design that uses no cables in the data path, minimizing airflow restrictions and points of failure. The 3U rack mounted system uses vertically-mounted disk drives in designed-in lightweight, low cost, vibration dampening disk drive canisters for the highest signal integrity and airflow. The result is lower drive temperatures, higher operational efficiency and extreme reliability. A basic 16TB system starts at around $17,000 MSRP.
The BlueStor Networked Storage Server also offers many features found only on more expensive offerings, including SES 2.0 compliancy for real-time system activity/failure status; use of two 6Gb SAS expanders and two 6Gb hardware RAID controllers to address eight disks per controller, each optimized for R/W performance to provide >100MB/s per disk data transfer rates, sustained, using 7,200 rpm SATA-3 disks.
In addition, the BlueStor Networked Storage Server euroNAS software has a number of powerful features, which make it attractive to both IT professionals and A/V professionals, including AFP, NFS, SMB/CIFS and FTP support; built-in iSCSI and fibre channel target; asynchronous replication that replicates storage to another server; snapshot replication that replicates live data quickly and reliably; and point-in-time snapshots that recover files to the earlier state.
By combining SAS RAID and file server functionality into a single unit, the new enterprise-class storage server fills the need between very high-end enterprise systems costing five times more and lower-end SMB systems, which can't offer such performance and reliability. The BlueStor Networked Storage Server is available in three economical, high-performance configurations: (1) Business 64-bit; (2) Premium Ultra; and (3) HA Cluster 64-bit. The basic Business 64-bit configuration offers RAID 1,5 support. The Premium Ultra and HA (High Availability) Cluster configurations, with the highest storage capacity support, provides support for all of JMR's internal hardware RAID controllers, 10 Gb/s networking with 802.3ad link aggregation (LACP), load balancing and added failover features. The HA Cluster product (which requires the use of dual servers) is the ultimate for demanding environments where performance, data security and 100% availability are mission critical, and provides the features of Premium Ultra with complete redundancy and active-active server failover. What's more, users can have an unlimited storage license with the purchase, unlike 'pay-as-you-go' licenses from other companies.
