    How long does it take to initialize the RAID on ISIS 1000?

    I have been asked this a few times this week, and I am VERY HAPPY to report that there is no setup / RAID build time required. The ISIS 1000 uses "Avid Dual Disk Protection" that does not require and build time, and has a faster recovery time than traditional RAID 6 - we only rebuild the used blocks (not blank parts of the drive) and therefore time to be fully protected again is reduced.

    Is it normal when you create a storage group, you are in unprotected mode ???? There is no raid to build but the management console show me as the storage group is not protected. And what about if one day you want to reinitialize the RAID to format totally the server ?

    Thanks,

    Where you're seeing unprotected in the storage group? The ISIS|1000 isn't using a traditional RAID where the entire storage group is in a RAID.

    The parity information is media aware and built based on each workspace. If a drive fails, only the media on that drive needs to be rebuilt.

    Deleting the workspaces and unbinding the Media Pack and deleting the storage group would completely erase the system.

    Thanks for the informations.

    I saw it in the "management console", when you go to "storage group" and you choose "details", there are an option to see the protect mode and it's here where you can see the storage is not protected.

    What version of the software are you running? I'm not seeing this.

    Thank you for the screen capture.

    We have tried to reproduce on a few systems, but havn't had success. It appears to be a GUI bug. We have a few ideas that we are tracking down.

    In the mean time, rest assured that your system is fully protected. The ISIS | 1000 supports one protection mode which is at the workspace level, not the Storage Group level. Workspace protection is configured automatically when creating individual workspaces.

    Did you add this column manually by right clicking on the column headers and selecting "Engine Protection Mode"? If so, we are seeing the same thing here.  This column heading is invalid and shouldn't be available. We will fix this in the next release.
