Winchester Systems Introduces FlashDisk RAID Disk Arrays for 10 GbE

Ideal for Network Centric Environments

BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - Winchester Systems Inc., a leading data storage solutions provider, today announced that FlashDisk VX-3460 Series RAID disk arrays are now available for 10 GbE networks.

The FlashDisk VX-3464R RAID disk array offers dual controllers with four 10 GbE ports and offered virtual tiered storage to 336 TB with a base unit and six expansion shelves. The FlashDisk VX-3462S model offers a single controller and two 10 GbE ports with the same expansion capacity.

"Many customers prefer to place data storage on an Ethernet LAN rather than a Fibre Channel SAN for convenience and low cost," according to Mr. Joel Leider, the company's chief executive officer. "Now with 10 GbE available, network centric environments can obtain much better performance than using traditional 1 GbE and have convenience and performance together for the first time," he elaborated.

The FlashDisk VX-3460 Series RAID disk arrays supports and 3.5" disk drives or 2.5" disk drives in 3.5" carriers with 15K, 10K and 7.2K rpm rotational speeds as well as Solid State Disks for maximum flexibility. Storage services including snapshots, mirroring and volume copy plus centralized web-based GUI are all included. Replication and thin provisioning services are optional.

The disk arrays are easily configured to meet the demands of SMB data centers and departmental requirements. They can be configured with high speed 15K or 10K rpm disks for database and transaction applications and with high capacity 2 TB or 3 TB disks for disk-to-disk backup, disaster recovery and archiving.

The FlashDisk VX Series disk arrays are available bundled with CA ARCserve Replication for overwhelming value. CA ARCserve Replication protects availability of systems, applications and data. This field-proven, host-based software offers local replication for business continuity and remote replication for disaster recovery, as well as continuous data protection for recovery from accidental deletions, data corruption or viruses.

Prices for FlashDisk VX-3400 RAID disk arrays including all standard data services and CA ARCserve Replication start at under $15,000. Products are available now and delivery is 2-3 weeks.
