3rd Generation Linux NAS
Aberdeen AberNAS 64-bit Linux servers are based on a 3rd Generation Linux OS featuring a streamlined and intuitive web-based GUI. The AberNAS Linux-based servers provide a robust open storage platform that can be tailored to optimize any IT manager’s most stringent requirements. The AberNAS N12L-Series delivers enterprise-class NAS storage capacity while offering the flexibility of iSCSI target capability.

As the best valued all-in-one NAS plus iSCSI storage server, the new AberNAS L-Series Storage System provides speed, simplicity, ease of management and dependable storage. Configured with a separate OS DOM to provide system reliability and stability, the AberNAS N12L may utilize four RAID optimized hard drives. Choose from performance SAS 12G drives to more cost effective RAID ready SATA 7200rpm drives. The AberNAS can provide a RAID 0, 1, 5 or 6 storage environment. The SAS expansion port allows for expansion with one of Aberdeen’s 3U 28-bay or 4U 45-bay JBOD enclosures for incredible storage expansion.

E5-2600 v4 Xeon Processor and DDR4-2400 Memory Support
More execution resources for higher overall performance. With up to 22 cores per socket, up to 55 MB of last-level cache (LLC), and support for up to 12 percent faster DDR4 memory versus previous-generation memory, the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family increases performance across a broad range of workloads, from business and technical computing applications to communications and storage solutions. These processors come in a wide variety of configurations, so core counts, frequencies, and power levels can be tailored for individual workloads to deliver optimal performance.

  • Up to 22 cores and 44 threads per socket
  • Up to 55 MB of last-level cache (LLC) for fast access to frequently used data
  • 9.6GT/s QPI processors support DDR4 2400MHz memory

Opening the server storage bottleneck
12Gb/s SAS to the server marketplace creates solutions that eliminate data bottlenecks in sizable storage environments.

Intelligent Platform Management Interface

For hardware-level platform monitoring and control functions, the IPMI protocol utilizes an out-of-band network to provide a flawless and secure path for mission-critical applications when regular in-band connectivity is lost or is unresponsive. Remote access for monitoring and administration allows the server administrators to view a server’s hardware status remotely, receive an alarm automatically if a failure occurs, and power cycle a system that is non-responsive.

10GBASE-T Simplifies the Transition to 10GbE

The Intel X540 family of products works with existing networks today. It works with legacy Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and Cat 6A cabling. The auto-negotiation between 1 GbE and 10 GbE provides the necessary backwards compatibility that most customers require for a smooth transition and easy migration to 10 GbE. When time and budget allows, 10GBASE-T switches can be added any time to experience the full benefits of 10 GbE.

Unified & Hybrid NAS + iSCSI Storage Appliance

The Aberdeen AberNAS L-Series is a network storage appliance equipped with highly optimized NAS OS dedicated for storage centric applications featuring high-performance, reliable file-sharing and file-serving. It is designed and built with the concept of what a True Storage Appliance should be for data availability and redundancy. The custom Linux OS unifies NAS(network share) and iSCSI/IP-SAN functionalities into one single device, so that IT staff no longer needs to make a choice between NAS or iSCSI.

Software Features

  • Highly efficient OS based on 64 bit Linux OS with lots of customization and re-engineering
  • Intuitive web-based GUI to configure, access and monitor the NAS/iSCSI device
  • Excellent file transfer rate for all types of protocols: NFS, AFP, CIFS, FTP, and iSCSI
  • Robust Journaling File Systems XFS or EXT4 options
  • File-sharing for clients across heterogeneous OS platforms
  • Support Teaming over 2 or more Gigabit NICs
  • Support popular 10Gb NICs
  • Support 10Gb or 40Gb Ethernet over Infiniband for selected brands/models
  • Supports most external RAID subsystems (DAS)
  • Capacity scalable via direct-attach external RAID, JBODs, or via remote iSCSI targets
  • Supports OS on DOM (Disk-on-Module) to eliminate mechanical wear and tear
  • Multiple Volume Snapshots, Schedulable & On-Demand
  • Remote Monitoring and Remote Email Notifications
  • NAS-to-NAS Folder Replications: Scheduled Differential and Scheduled Full Copy with Compression
  • Include iSCSI target & initiator functions for IP-SAN infrastructure
  • Portable RAID volume (Tape-Live) for removing a RAID/disks to be stored off site

IP-SAN iSCSI Target & Initiator

  • iSCSI Target function allows a certain portion(s) of the storage to be partitioned as iSCSI volume(s) and assigned to specific host computer, appearing as a local disk to that host computer and provides block device services instead of file services.
  • iSCSI initiator function allows the NAS to mount remote iSCSI target volume as its local physical storage, and then create NAS volumes or iSCSI volumes on top of it.
  • Combination of iSCSI Target and Initiator support between multiple NAS units can be used as one of the method to do Multi-NAS-Aggregation for capacity scalability
  • iSCSI volume can also be protected by snapshots
