|08/23/2012- Thecus® is excited to announce a brand new unit specifically for daisy-chaining, now users have the ability to increase volume with the benefits of fast transfers and infrastructure cost savings. Below we’ll go into the concept of daisy-chaining, go into depth on the highly praised D16000 and how this innovative storage device changes the way network storage infrastructure is set up.
Innovative Thecus® D16000 characteristics
For the first time in the storage industry, daisy-chaining technology is put in place by Thecus®. At first glance, the D16000 resembles the N16000 so much that the average user likely won’t be able to tell the difference. However, the device is a total different unit, specifically the internals. First, CPU and RAM cannot be located in the interior as there are no CPU and RAM. What are included in the D16000 are 16-bays, backplane with SAS I/O. SAS SFF-8088 cables are required to link devices together. In a nutshell, the D16000 can be viewed as a large external hard drive coupled to each other for massive volume, hence DAS for (direct-attached storage).
Daisy chain basics
The announcement of implementing daisy chain technology in the Thecus® line of products is a great milestone and brings wonderful advanced functions to the storage industry. A little background, daisy chain is a type of network topology for those that aren’t too familiar with the notion. Network topology is for network administrators to link two or more devices together to transfer data. Daisy chain layout is beneficial to users who often require adding more nodes to the network. In addition, this layout is an easy way to connect nodes together and requires little cable to do so.
