  • 2 x 10Gb  Ethernet Ports*
  • 8 x 6Gb SAS Channels (2 x mini SAS Ports) 
  • Up to  16,000 Initiators  
  • Non-BlockingESAS102800 10Gb SCSI to SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) bridge Cache
  • Low Power Design 
  • Error Recovery Level 2 
  • iSNS 
  • CHAP 
  • Jumbo Packet Support
  • Multipath I/O  
  • GUI Interface
* Offered with 2 x 10Gb short range optical multi-mode connections, 2 x 10Gb 10000BaseT RJ45 connections or 2 x SFP+ sockets that require SFP+ modules (not supplied with the unit).

The ESAS102800 has many unique features to maximise performance and ensure your data is transferred to the peripheral devices in the shortest possible time. With its load balancing MPIO* enabled Ethernet ports combined with its unique non-blocking data cache module, the ESAS102800 provides up to 1200MB/s sustained throughput.

By using our 10Gb iSCSI Bridges in combination with their DELL TL2000 / 4000 Libraries, customers have totally transformed their backup performance and functionality. Click here for our Case Study with ITechTools.
Ensuring that your data reaches its final destination is important these days with tight backup windows. With Error Recovery Level 2 support, the ESAS102800 can continue to receive data even if one of the Ethernet connections is disconnected.
Ease of Use
With every increasing pressure on IT staff, there is less time to spend on learning and managing new products and therefore, it is critical that new products are intuitive and easy to use. Avax works closely with its customers to ensure this is always the case. 
The ESAS102800 uses the latest power supply technologies with typical efficiencies of 95%, which minimise electrical power consumption and heat output. 


The ESAS102800 is perfect for use with the latest version of VMware®, which no longer supports directly attached SCSI and SAS tape drives.  The ESAS102800 makes it easy to use SAS drives.
