RAID Inc. Selects Smart Storage Systems' XceedIOPS for Enterprise-Class Storage Solution

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - RAID Inc. today announces that it has selected SMART's XceedIOPS SAS 2.5" solid-state drives (SSDs) for use in its 2U 24-Bay EBOD, its purpose-built storage solution designed for mid-level, enterprise-class storage applications. The EBOD, equipped with eight XceedIOPS SAS 2.5" 200GB SSDs, will be on display and demonstrated in RAID's booth #2543 at SC11 on November 14-17 in Seattle, WA.

The RAID 2U 24-Bay EBOD is designed to be a cost-effective, enterprise-class JBOD using the latest 6G SAS architecture. Engineered to be flexible and scalable, the RAID EBOD enables SAS/SATA hard-disk-drive and SSD connections using standard SCSI protocol. It offers best-in-class performance, energy efficiency, and 24x7 high-availability redundancy of key components.

"Given its commitment to enterprise class storage systems, RAID is an excellent fit for SMART Storage's SSDs, and the XceedIOPS SSDs offer an ideal performance, endurance and reliability match for the RAID 2U 24-Bay EBOD," said John Scaramuzzo, President of SMART Storage Systems. "Because the RAID products are customizable and purpose-built for their customers, they benefit greatly from the swappable form factor of SMART SSDs, which are ideal for use in enterprise storage applications as well as high-performance computing implementations."

Designed with performance, endurance and reliability in mind, the XceedIOPS SAS SSDs incorporate enterprise-grade multi-level-cell (E-MLC) NAND flash technology. SMART's XceedIOPS SAS SSDs provide a five-year minimum operational life, even in workload-intensive and high-performance computing environments. Featuring sequential read/write performance of 250/230 MB/s and random read/write performance of 26K/20K IOPS, the XceedIOPS SAS SSD is available in capacities ranging from 100 to 400GB. Additional reliability features built into the XceedIOPS SSDs are a high reliability backup power circuitry, power fail recovery, thermal monitoring and advanced error-correction capabilities.

"We are extremely happy with the high-performance and the endurance of the SMART Storage's XceedIOPS SAS SSDs," said Bob Picardi, CEO of RAID Inc. "We are convinced that our 24-Bay EBOD enterprise-class products equipped with SMART Storage's XceedIOPS SSDs are an exceptional addition to our product portfolio."
