Easy RAID Management
RM16-S6-R utilizes built-in firmware with an embedded terminal emulation which can be accessed via hot key at BIOS booting screen (PC platform). The system firmware also contains a HTTP browser base program, which allows accessed through an HTTP proxy server function in MAC, Window, Linux and other OS. This browser base allows both local and remote control to create, modify RAID sets, volumes sets and monitoring RAID status from any standard web browser. RM16-S6-R system RAID management can be accessed in multiple ways:

  • Hot key at BIOS boot-up screen. This pre-boot manager utility can be used to simplify the set up and management of the RAID configuration (PC x86 Platform)
  • RAID set up and management can be accessed via Web browser through the http Proxy server functions in MAC, Windows, Linux and FreeBSD. This method allows both local and remote control, configuration, and monitoring of RAID status
  • LCD Control Panel - Intuitive LCD controller allows end user to configure, set up and monitor the RAID volume with the press of a button

Monitor and Report
Unlike other RAID systems in the market, RM16-S6-R fully supports S.M.A.R.T. Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology, and email notification. Our RM16-S6-R can notify by email up to four email addresses on any predefined event, even just a daily report of the RAID itself. This certainly will take out the guess work and uncertainty about the storage.
