Highly Reliable and Scalable Virtual SAN System, Built on ISE Technology
As data grows and becomes ever more critical to your organization, you need a storage solution that provides extreme reliability, along with flexible scale. However, traditional disk-based systems all suffer from one problem: Disk drives fail. It is an accepted fact of data center life. The more drives you have, the more failures you must deal with. In fact, the majority of storage related service events are caused by drive failures.
This is a time-consuming, risky, and expensive problem. When a drive fails, someone must replace it. That takes valuable time and puts your data at risk. And as the size of drives increases, so does the rebuild time. In addition, a good portion of your maintenance agreement cost is undoubtedly for such anticipated replacements.
However, this is not the way things have to be. Xiotech Corporation is changing the rules of the storage game, with revolutionary technology that eliminates virtually all disk-related service events. This solution delivers reliability and scalability unmatched in the storage industry and comes with an unprecedented five-year hardware warranty.
The Solution: Emprise 7000
Xiotech's Emprise 7000 system is a nested, virtualized solution based on Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) technology and Xiotech's proven virtualized, distributed cluster architecture.
ISE is a tightly integrated storage environment, purpose-built to maximize reliability and performance. Each ISE includes one or two sealed DataPacs (capacity modules) and dual Managed Reliability Controllers, which locally manage cache, data protection processes, and more. This unique design, along with Xiotech's proven management software, delivers a full-featured storage solution that is extremely reliable, scalable, and easy to use.
