    • The DSN-610 with 4x1GbE host network ports is an active secondary iSCSI controller for use in the DSN-6110 primary array, allowing High Availability (HA) capability and providing additional performance. D-Link’s DSN-6000 Series iSCSI SAN array is a data center-class network storage solution, ideal for small to medium enterprises. With the addition of a secondary controller, the DSN-6000 Series offers the redundancy and performance required for primary server applications including virtual machines, e-mail and database hosting. All DSN-6000 storage solutions are supplied complete with snapshot, volume cloning and remote replication capabilities, without the need for costly software licenses.


    • A Choice of Host Interfaces – 1GbE or 10GbE

      Both the DSN-6110 and DSN-6410 each support Link Aggregation Groups (LAG), Multi-Path I/O (MPIO) and Multiple Connections per Session (MCS) for flexibility, performance and resiliency. The DSN-6110 can have its four 1GbE ports grouped together for up to 450 MB/s bandwidth. With the addition of a secondary controller (DSN-610) the available throughput increases up to 900 MB/s bandwidth. The DSN-6410 utilizes two built-in fully integrated 10GbE interfaces as a high performance alternative to 4Gbps Fibre Channel, for up to 650 MB/s. With the addition of a secondary controller (DSN-640) the available throughput increases up to 1,300 MB/s bandwidth. Each DSN-6410 array and DSN-640 controller comes standard with one 10GbE SFP+ transceiver and one optical cable providing industry standard LCconnectors.

    • High Availability (HA)

      The DSN-6110 & DSN-6410 primary arrays, based on a single controller, each provides an ideal platform for nearline storage requirements such as disk-to-disk backup, data rchiving and video surveillance. With the addition of a secondary controller (DSN-610 for the DSN-6110 and DSN-640 for the DSN-6410) the DSN-6000 Series can provide the failover, redundancy and performance required for mission critical scenarios such as Virtual Machine (VM) shares, databases, Online Transactional Processing (OLTP), email applications, storage consolidation and your other primary storage needs. When deployed with redundant controllers, the DSN-6000 series is equipped with fully redundant components for all major functions including RAID controllers, host connectivity, power supplies, fan modules, battery backup modules, and SAS JBOD expansion ports. The hot-pluggable design allows for uninterrupted services, even while replacing failed components. Additionally, the active-active controller design allows for online firmware upgrades, eliminating the need for a system reboot or additional downtime when updating the system to the latest software code.

    • Expansion Options

      The DSN-6110 & DSN-6410 primary arrays each support 12 internal SAS/SATA1 hard drives and with the addition of up to four DSN-6020 expansion arrays, can scale to a total of 240TB of raw storage capacity using 4TB drives.
    • iSCSI for IP Networks

      Storage Area Networks (SANs) have traditionally been reserved for complex Fibre Channel networks. The introduction of iSCSI has extended the powerful centralized storage capabilities of SAN technology to IP networks. By utilizing existing Ethernet technology, the costs associated with Fibre Channel switching, separate host bus adapters, expensive storage subsystems and administration is significantly reduced. iSCSI SANs leverage the Ethernet infrastructure and standards that are already familiar to most IT personnel.
    • Remote Replication, Cloning and Snapshots

      Remote replication provides continuous data protection ensuring your valuable data is safe in the event of a catastrophic system failure in your primary site or data center. One source target can be set up with multiple destination targets, allowing administrators to replicate data to different locations. These replication jobs can be set up for manual or automated scheduling allowing hourly or daily configuration. Volume cloning can be used to backup data from a source volume to a target volume set up a backup schedule, and deploy rules for creating these backups. Snapshot technology ensures data can be restored quickly and easily from a pointin- time copy and easily without the need for lengthy restore from a backup. Up to a total of 512 writable or read-only snapshots are supported and compliant to Microsoft Windows Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS). These snapshots can be implemented manually or through automated scheduling which allows hourly or daily configuration. In addition, the snapshot technology follows the block-level copy-on-write technology which provides fast recovery of data in case of a disk failure, file corruption or program malfunction. Remote replication, cloning and snapshot technology are supplied as standard features in all DSN-6000 Series storage solutions, at no additional cost.

    • RAID support

      The DSN-6000 Series iSCSI SAN arrays support RAID levels 0, 1 (N-way mirror), 0+1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 30, 50, 60 and JBOD for data protection and performance.

    • Green Energy Savings

      The DSN-6000 Series is equipped with D-Link Green features for saving power. When properly configured, the power consumption of hard drives can be reduced to a minimum using the auto disk spin down feature. The DSN-6000 Series array monitors environmental temperatures to optimize the cooling mechanism. The fan modules respond only when needed. The power supply modules are all 80 PLUS power efficient, providing a more favorable power conversion rate. These power-saving features help to greatly reduce energy consumption and increase the product’s lifespan, which is critical in a data center environment.
