NEW AC&NC JETSTOR® RDX16 and RDX48 SOLUTIONS DELIVER ULTRA-HIGH DATA AVAILABILITY FOR CRITICAL MEDIA, MEDICAL AND HPC APPLICATIONS
Built With JetStor, EchoStreams, and RAIDIX Systems, the Platforms Uniquely Feature RAID 7.3, Software Defined Storage, SSD Caching & Data Corruption Safeguards
Pittsburgh, PA, June 09, 2015. AC&NC, a provider of leading RAID/Hybrid Flash/All Flash storage solutions, today introduced its JetStor RDX16 and RDX48 systems that are complete solutions engineered to support media production, medical imaging and high-performance computing (HPC). Utilizing leading AC&NC, EchoStreams, and RAIDIX technologies, the platforms are tuned to store and deliver large block files like high-resolution medical photographs and high-definition (HD) film and television content. They speed delivery of voluminous HPC data and can serve as a cluster system building-block or independent HPC storage to meet the needs of supercomputing and big data applications. For all applications, the JetStor RDX systems deliver unsurpassed data protection and no performance loss even with multiple clients.
Built with robust JetStor storage platforms from AC&NC, EchoStreams’ high-speed server systems, and RAIDIX software for software-defined storage functionality, the JetStor RDX solutions are the only large-block media delivery and storage systems to offer RAID 7.3. The triple parity of RAID 7.3 greatly decreases the probability of system failure and ensures rapid data recovery even if three disks fail simultaneously.
“Thanks to the partnership between AC&NC, EchoStreams, and RAIDIX, enterprises of all sizes can now cost-effectively save and retrieve the largest and most critical files,” said Gene Leyzarovich, president of AC&NC. “We designed JetStor RDX solutions to meet the data availability and integrity needs of heavy HPC workloads and time-sensitive media productions, and to ensure medical data and images are always safe and quickly accessible.”
Speed, Safety & Functionality
The JetStor RDX16 and RDX48 solutions use RAIDIX error-correction technology to detect and fix silent corruptions while normal disk operations are performing without performance degradation. Additionally, the systems conduct background scans for silent errors during lower-activity periods. As a result, they eliminate data loss, ensuring that vital files always remain intact.
The JetStor RDX solutions deploy solid-state drive (SSD) caching to maximize storage and retrieval performance. The RAIDIX caching controller automatically identifies and relocates frequently accessed data to the chassis’ SSDs for the fastest access and media transfer speeds possible. Frames, for example, are never dropped even with concurrent HD or 2K–8K digital video streams and the solutions furnish the massive throughput demanded by HPC applications.
”Collaboration with AC&NC, RAIDIX, and EchoStreams enable us to provide unique end-to-end solutions of robust and high performance storage while providing cost effective platforms,” said Andy Lee, Director of Product Marketing from EchoStreams. “RDX16 and RDX48 solutions are highly scalable that allow small, medium businesses and even enterprise customers to have high-availability storage for small storage scalable up to Exascale storage solutions.”
The JetStor RDX solutions support Tier0 and Tier1 shared storage. The JetStor RDX16 solution offers a 3U 4-bay Tier0 and 16-bay Tier1 storage EchoStreams clustered server and the JetStor RDX48 system features a 4U, 48-bay EchoStreams flash array server. A 3U 16-Bay JetStor RDX16 array provides storage, and capacity can be easily and economically increased by adding JBODs (just a bunch of disks) from AC&NC.
For economy and ease of deployment, the JetStor RDX solutions support all protocols, including SAN, DAS, NAS, Fibre Channel, and iSCSI, reducing complexity and hardware costs.
