The DDP6D is delivered with 6 x 500 GB, 1TB, 2 TB or 3 TB 6Gb/s SATA2 drives and has a maximum internal bandwidth of 250 MB/s. It uses raid technology.
The DDP6D allows project and file sharing at wire speed over ethernet for every application. Due to the raid 5 technology the effective capacity of the DDP6D is: 2,5 TB, 5 TB, 10 TB or 15 TB.
The DDP6D can be expanded to a DDP8D.
The DDP8D is delivered with 8 x 500 GB, 1TB, 2TB or 3 TB 6Gb/s SATA2 drives and has a bandwidth of 350 MB/s. It uses raid technology and redundant power supplies.
The DDP8D allows project and file sharing at wire speed over ethernet for every application. When raid 5 technology is used the effective capacity of the DDP8D is: 3,5 TB, 7 TB, 14 TB or 21 TB.
The DDP can be integrated in your existing ethernet infrastructure with its 4 GbE ports. The ports can be used for your workflow although NIC2 should also be available to your officenet for service. Optional GbE and or 10 GbE ports can be added. An iSCSI initiator and AVFS client driver can be installed on each desktop with Mac OSX 10.5.x to Lion, Windows XP, Vista, 2003, 2008, Window 7 or Linux. After entering proper IP addresses and names in both DDP and desktops you are set to go. One or multiple DDP drives can be created from the Dynamic Drive Pool. Each DDP drive behaves like a normal local drive on desktops. On each desktop the same DDP drive can be used as a local drive with normal read and write access. On Mac and Linux the DDP drives show up as HFS+ drives, while on a Windows PC DDP drives appear as NTFS volumes in My Computer.
