All Flash Storage Lunch n’ Learn: AC&NC and StorTrends

3600i Solid State Array

AC&NC and StorTrends partnered to host a Lunch n’ Learn event at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Pittsburgh, PA on February 24, 2015.  Guests were treated to a full-course lunch and presentation centered on the newly released StorTrends 3600i All Flash Storage Array.  AC&NC joined StorTrends as a value-added reseller of the product, helping to further boost its SSD capabilities and overall performance.

The event consisted of a Meet & Greet between attendees and both companies, followed by an in-depth presentation of the features, benefits and performance of the 3600i.  The lunch was rounded out by a Q&A session and trivia round where guests won JetStor prizes.

We’re excited about the launch of this array and the efficiency it stands to bring companies across the world.

StorTrends 3600i All Flash Storage: Low Price, High Performance

Founded on over 114 storage patents, this Dual Controller All Flash SAN is the next step in solid-state drive storage technology.  A result of over 50 years of combined industry experience between StorTrends and AC&NC, the 3600i brings high-level performance at a price point for small to medium-sized businesses.

Simply put, the 3600i is making storage arrays more efficient and more affordable.  The traditional environment for businesses includes 1 SAN Head Appliance and 4 Enclosure Shelves resulting in 50 TB of raw capacity.  The 3600i comes in with 7.2 TB of raw capacity, but carries 50 TB of effective capacity in one unit.  Across the board, this SSD storage array is drastically more efficient than previous SSD setups with incredibly low latency and a deduplication and compression ratio of 35:1.

Compared to the traditional storage environment mentioned above, the StorTrends 3600i is poised to bring businesses a more efficient array at a significantly lower price point (a difference of ~$70,000).

Thank you to all those who joined us for lunch, and we hoped you enjoyed the learning more about the 3600i All Flash Array.  If you’re interested in learning more, please contact our Sales Department at 1-800-213-2667, Ext. 122 or email
