Cost-effective and High performance
  • AUFS5030-1 is most cost-effective SATA II disk drive RAID subsystem with completely integrated high performance and data protection capabilities.
  • AUFS5030-1 delivers the performance required for I/O demanding applications such as Video-On-Demand, database servers, and image systems.

Dual Host (DAS & AOE)

  • DAS
    • USB 2.0, FireWire 800 (1394b) and SATA ComBo interface.
    • It takes full advantage of high-speed 1394/USB serial bus and Serial ATA Bus allowing for multitasking performance
  • Gigabit AOE (ATA-Over-Ethernet)
    • AUFS5030-1 uses AOE (ATA-Over-Ethernet) technology to support data to/from the SATA devices through 1Gbps Ethernet links. It takes full advantage of high-speed Gigabit Ethernet Bus allowing for multi-user and multitasking performance.
      The Gigabit AOE bridge controller can demonstrate a network disk read/write bandwidth close to the local Direct-Attached-Storage access speed.
    • The Gigabit AOE bridge controller along with the host system driver software provides versatile, scalable, sharable, and expandable network directly attached storage solutions.

Unsurpassed Data Availability

  • As storage capacities continue to rapidly increase, users need greater level of disk drive fault tolerance, which can be implemented without doubling the investment in disk drives. The RAID 6 can offer fault tolerance greater that RAID 1 or RAID 5 but only consumes the capacity of 2 disk drives for distributed parity data. The SATA RAID controllers with extreme performance RAID 6 engine supported provide the highest RAID 6 feature to meet this requirement. The controller can concurrently compute two parity blocks and get comparable with RAID 5 performance.
  • AUFS5030-1 allows two HDD failure without impact on the existing data and failed drive rebuild is transparent to the host. Environmental information is accessible either via the control panel/serial port or Ethernet port.

Gigabit AOE (Netwirk Direct Attached Storage) Benefits

Easiest use

AOE technology is so simple and easy to use. Anyone who can use a PC can use highest performance without a knowledge of network, folder sharing, TCP/IP configuration, DHCP settings.

  • Plug and play
    1. Just plug AOE storage into network switch (LAN ports) and turn on
      the switch.
    2. Install driver software V just put in driver s/w CD into computer, it is all
    3. Add Access Key and R/W Key for your privacy and security of data enjoy all the
      performance and feature of AOE technology

  • No setting or configuration required
    • No need to setup IP address, or DHCP setting
  • Just use
    • From your computer it is just same as the storage inside your computer
    • Use just as you used PC before. NO NEED FURTHER EXPLANATION!

Highest performance

It is directly attached and controlled. Therefore it is same speed as your storage installed inside your computer. It is the fastest network storage in the world.

  • Why AOE is fast?

  • AOE storage is connected in the network but the structure and data path is same as computers internal storage.
  • Other network storage is complex and has long and many different data process path
  • Therefore it is the fasted network storage in the world.


  • Access blocking
    AOE has its Access Key and R/W Key implanted into its hardware. Secure your ID of AOE, then no one can even see or access to the AOE storage even though they are connected in the same network.
  • Access Key : controls access to the AOE storage
  • Without knowing Access Key, the PC can not access nor recognize the the existence of the AOE storage in the network
  • Write blocking
    Some times it is required to open read-only to other users in the network, while you are securing the row data in the storage. Secure the R/W Key and release Access Key to other users. All other users can read the data but can not write, change, alter, or damage the row data.
  • R/W Key : controls write authority into the AOE storage
  • Without knowing R/W Key , the user can not change, alter, erase, or damage the original data
  • Hacking blocking
    AOE storage is safe from hacking from Internet. Even if your network is also connected to Internet by DSL it is impossible a hacker get into the AOE storage and steal or damage your data.
  • AOE is not using TCP/IP
  • Therefore even if the network is connected outside Internet, it is safe from hacking.


  • Drivers ( for Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, 2003 Server and Vista
  • Drivers (V080222) for Linux Kernel 2.6
