Xiotech Emprise 5000 — Virtual Storage System

High-Performance, Compact, Virtual Storage System, Built on ISE Technology

Today's Applications Demand a storage foundation that can keep up with their growing appetite for performance. However, most available storage options suffer from common processing limitations. Controllers become bottlenecks as they are forced to manage cache, RAID, drive rebuilds, and more. They also must contend with diverse, complex code across various brands and generations of drives and enclosures.

Xiotech Corporation eliminates these performance barriers with game-changing technology that delivers unbeatable performance, extreme reliability, and terabytes of easy-tomanage storage-all in an affordable, compact solution.

The Solution: Emprise 5000
Xiotech's Emprise 5000 system is a revolutionary concept in data storage. It is built on Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) technology-a perfectly balanced building block of performance, reliability, and scalability.

The ISE is a tightly integrated storage environment, purpose-built to maximize performance and reliability. Each ISE includes one or two sealed DataPacs (capacity modules) and dual Managed Reliability Controllers, which locally manage cache, data protection processes, and more.

Built on the ISE foundation, Emprise 5000 is a complete, self-enclosed virtualized storage solution, which you can configure to meet your specific needs. In just 3U of rack space, you can have up to 16 terabytes of capacity or a high-performance storage powerhouse for your transactional applications.

Emprise 5000 is easy to attach to your network-either directly or via a Fibre Channel switch. And it requires minimal configuration or administration, so it is perfect for departmental or branch office deployment.
