RAID Inc. Launches the XANADU 220, Scalable Storage Solution With Capability of Scaling to a Peta-Byte in a Single 40U Rack

METHUEN, MA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) -  RAID Inc., an end to end high-performance solution provider, announced today the Xanadu 220, its latest launch into enterprise class scalable storage with exceptional performance of up to 6GB/s. The Xanadu 220 is ideal for environments that store vast amounts of data and is utilized for high-bandwidth programs and complex application processing such as computational analysis, data-intensive research, rich media, 3-D computer modeling, seismic processing, data mining and large-scale simulation. Demands of multiple terabytes per second are required to minimize the I/O cycles of large-scale clusters.

The Xanadu 220 solution comes in two host connectivity options; Direct InfiniBand [8 x DDR Ports] or Fibre-Channel [16 x 8Gb FCPorts]. This gives HPC users configuration options that fit their individual needs.

The Xanadu 220 provides superior density and cost savings with a 4U drive enclosure that supports up to 60 SATA drives that are all accessible from the front, reduced operational costs up to 35% and footprint up to 65% reduction for capacity-intensive applications. The Xanadu 220 also has the option of a 3U drive enclosure that supports intermixing high-performance SSD and FC drives with high-capacity SATA drives.

"No single point of failure and a wide array of Enterprise class features unmatched density and performance make this product unique in the Storage Industry," stated Bob Picardi, CEO of RAID Inc.
