battery's charge.
The DSN-2100-10 supports jumbo frames and VLAN
tagging to segregate traffic into isolated zones for
secure access, improving network throughput and
reducing CPU overhead.
D-Link's volume virtualization technology utilizes
the concept of storage extents, which are the
fundamental building blocks used to enable features
such as RAID, online capacity expansion, volume
reconfiguration and migration. Each disk drive can
contain multiple and divergent RAID configurations
instead of requiring dedication to a single RAID set.
This technology allows for the support of mixed disk
drive capacities for volume creation. Volume capacity

migration are performed online with minimal impact
to users. Users can quickly deploy a SAN using
inexpensive SATA disk drives and simply add more
drives as needed.
Micro rebuilds provide protection against
unresponsive SATA commands by forcing a response
within a preset time limit.
An iSCSI SAN array can prove to be a valuable tool to
supplement a network storage foundation. Whether
providing a low-cost block-based solution for data
backup and recovery, replacement of Direct Attached
Storage (DAS) or providing an entry-level nearline
storage solution, the DSN-2100-10 may provide the
performance and functionality needed.
