    Rack-Mount Model (see section 1.2) Floor Model (see section 1.3) This chapter provides information on the Fibre, NAS, and iSCSI models. The following table illustrates sections that provide an explanation for each model. Fibre model: Connects disk array subsystem to a host computer with Fibre Channel interface.
  • Page 22: Overview Features

    AMS200) is available in two models: the floor model and the rack-mount model. There are two types of the AMS200 floor model. The first type is a combination of the DF700-RKS (hereafter referred to as the RKS) and the floor standing kit DF-F700-H1J (hereafter referred to as the Floor [RKS+H1J] Model).
  • Page 23: Scalability

    Ethernet: With the 1 G bps Ethernet connection, the subsystem can transfer data between host computer and the subsystem at a maximum speed of 100 M bytes/s per port via a network. Enough throughput can be obtained even when having multiple access to the multiple devices connected to the same network loop.
  • Page 24: Reliability, Availability, And Serviceability

    1.1.5 Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability The AMS200 subsystem is not expected to fail in any way that would interrupt user access to data. The AMS200 can sustain single component failures and still continue to provide full access to all stored user data.
  • Page 25: Hitachi Freedom Storageā„¢ And Hitachi Freedom Data Networks

    Hitachi Data Systems’ end-to-end Storage Solutions give you the freedom to locate storage wherever it makes the greatest business sense to do so and protect your investment in currently installed components. Made possible by the advent and proliferation of high-speed technologies, storage area networks break the traditional server/storage bond and enable total connectivity.
  • Page 26: Rack-Mount Model

    The rack-mount model is composed of a single RKS or a combination of the RKS, RKAJ/RKAJAT, and RKNAS mounted on a rack frame. The RKS is capable of mounting up to 15 disk drives; a controller to perform RAID control on the drives is included. The RKAJ/RKAJAT is capable of mounting up to 15 disk drives and controls the drives through a connection with an RKS.
  • Page 27: Floor Model

    The Floor (RKS+H1J) Model is capable of mounting up to 15 disk drives and include a controller to perform RAID control on the drives. The Floor (RKS+RKAJ+H2J) model is capable of mounting up to 30 disk drives and includes a controller to perform RAID control on the drives.

  • Page 33: Symbol Marks

    2.2.1 Symbol Marks The warning labels which appear on the subsystem and/or in this guide indicate potential safety hazards. When you see these symbols, observe the safety instructions that follow: This is the safety alert symbol. It is used to alert you to potential personal injury hazards.
  • Page 34: Precautions For Using Equipment

    Avoid physical disruption to the equipment. This may result in hazardous physical conditions and equipment failure. Do not place heavy objects on top of the disk array. Avoid using the equipment for any use other than its original purpose; otherwise, an injury or equipment failure may result.
  • Page 35 Do not allow the battery to be physically damaged. If the battery is physically damaged, have it replaced as soon as possible. Do not connect the two terminals of the battery directly to each other; this will create a short circuit.
  • Page 36 10. Do not let the battery become wet by soaking it in the water or seawater. If the battery becomes wet, a short circuit can occur and an excessive amount of current can be produced, causing abnormal chemical reactions inside.
  • Page 37 11. Do not nail or hammer the battery. The battery may be broken or dented and a short circuit may occur inside. As a result, the battery may become overheated, burst or ignite. 12. Do not solder directly to the battery. If you do so, heat will melt the insulator and damage the safety fuse/mechanism.
