Xiotech Debuts High-Performance NAS Solution Integrating Symantec FileStore
ISE Technology With FileStore Allows Users to Maximize Benefits of Unified Storage, Drive Business Efficiency and Minimize Costs
LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) - SYMANTEC VISION 2010 -- Xiotech Corporation today launched a turn-key, scale-out, network-attached storage (NAS) solution pairing Xiotech's patented Intelligent Storage Element (ISE™) blades with Symantec's FileStore product, a file serving platform that delivers industry-leading performance and scale to enterprise storage environments. The joint solution allows cloud service providers, high-performance computing environments and data storage users to achieve cost effective and comprehensive file-based data management and protection with maximum performance and scalability.
The combined solution, called ISE NAS, delivers industry-leading functionality, performance, reliability and linear scalability on the back end at a fraction of the cost of similar solutions on the market today. The turn-key solution allows for rapid deployment and automated provisioning of file storage and clustered file systems and can scale up to 16 asymmetric or symmetric nodes while storage can scale out seamlessly and independently up to two petabytes (PB) behind a single cluster. It will be available via Xiotech channel partners in June.
"FileStore builds upon our industry leadership in clustered file systems and provides customers with a high-performance and highly scalable platform for file serving with low-cost hardware," says Yogesh Agrawal, Vice President, FileStore Group at Symantec. "Xiotech's ISE technology is built around the same concepts around price performance. Together, FileStore and ISE deliver an extremely efficient solution that seamlessly scales from the entry level out to large HPC environments at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions."
"In the face of relentless, unstructured data growth, IT should not have to choose between performance and capacity," said Xiotech Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development Brian Reagan. "FileStore's powerful features, combined with Xiotech's scale-out storage blades, allow our customers and partners to dramatically increase infrastructure efficiency, driving higher service levels and running their applications better. This is what Intelligent Application Storage is all about."
Xiotech Corporation is one of the world's largest privately held data storage companies and a leader in Intelligent Application Storage. Xiotech's patented Intelligent Storage Element (ISE™) technology has rebooted storage fundamentals to better align with evolving application demands, including linearly scalable performance and capacity, industry-leading energy savings and zero-touch reliability. ISE storage blades enable organizations to build systems of interoperable, best-of-breed solutions and overcome the bottlenecks caused by current-generation storage infrastructure in the face of explosive data growth, increasing levels of virtualization and ever-increasing application intelligence. With a widely acclaimed service and support team and more than 240 foundational storage patents held across a team of storage industry veterans from EMC, Seagate, IBM, Compaq and DEC, Xiotech is setting a new standard in storage.
