The SAN Solution to Deliver High Availability & Enterprise Features for SMB
AegisSAN Q500-P10 is the cutting-edge storage system designed to help users do more with less with the top-notch hardware configurations, dual active controllers, fully modular components as well as the state-of-the-art software functions.

High Availability
The dual active controllers plus fully redundant and hot-swappable designs make AegisSAN Q500 series system a highly available system. It offers multiple paths and load balancing features such as MPIO, MC/S, Trunking, and LACP to better ensure the reliability.

Green Designs
AegisSAN Q500 disk array adopts Intel's latest S1200 series CPU and it's the SAN solution with outstanding energy efficiency and cost effectiveness. This platform includes key features such as error code correction, 64-bit support and virtualization technologies.
In addition, AegisSAN Q500 system is equipped with 80 Plus Gold power supplies to achieve 90% energy efficiency as well as peak reduction and improved power quality.
The auto disk spin down function enables the system to reduce power consumption of hard drives which account for the most electricity in the storage system.

Enhanced Data Security
The innovated USB LCM allows AegisSAN Q500 storage to avoid data leakage in data centers, lower TCO and enhance the manageability for IT administrators. This series includes QSnap for writeable snapshot and QReplica for remote replication to maximize customers' return on investment. The battery backup module keeps cache data safe in the event of power outage.

Great Performance & Efficiency
The proprietary QiSOE (Qsan hardware iSCSI offload engine) boosts the performance for the disk array. The outstanding designs of the controllers make AegisSAN Q500 series system provide great IOPS and throughput for performance demanding applications. The hardware RAID makes the reliability better and volume robust.
The ultra high density storage system features QThin, the thin provisioning function to provide more physical resources than actually available capacity so that IT administrators can avoid allocated but unused storage and purchase only the disk capacity they actually need to significantly raise storage utilization and to save cost.
AegisSAN Q500 series supports VMware vSphere 5 VAAI (vStorage APIs for Array Integration), Citrix and Hyper-V for highly virtualized environments. With VAAI certification, the disk array can offload server and network loading, speed up provisioning of new virtual machines and increase VM density.
