AC&NC INTRODUCES JETSTOR® UNIFIED STORAGE RAID ARRAYS TO STREAMLINE, ACCELERATE & ECONOMIZE DATA STORAGE
JetStor SAS 716U & 724U Systems Consolidate NAS, SAN, and Cloud Storage While Delivering Deduplication, Compression, Snapshots & Ultra-Fast SSD Performance
Pittsburgh, PA, September 12, 2012. AC&NC, a provider of leading RAID storage solutions, today introduced its JetStor SAS 716U and 724U RAID arrays to integrate and simplify storage in mixed NAS and IP SAN environments. The next-generation solutions support both file-level and block-level data in single, centrally managed devices, enabling even small businesses and remote offices to cost-effectively meet storage needs from file access and email to storage pooling and high-performance applications. The JetStor systems also can be provisioned with solid-state drives to greatly accelerate read/writes for data-intensive applications like transaction processing and digital content delivery. Moreover, the platforms make storage more efficient and secure with such features as compression, deduplication, snapshots, thin provisioning, unified authentication, and simplified management.
“The JetStor unified storage arrays allow even modest-sized firms to afford the competitive advantages of NAS, SAN, and cloud storage,” said Gene Leyzarovich, president of AC&NC. “They reduce capital and operating costs by eliminating the need to procure, administer, maintain, and power separate devices for file and block data. Our new arrays are a boon to companies that need to deliver services from storage virtualization and virtual tape libraries to geospatial, medical, and rich media applications economically, rapidly, and safely.”
Simplifying the Data Center with High-Speed Storage
Featuring cableless design, JetStor SAS 716U and 724U RAID arrays are engineered for continuous availability and flexibility to provide shared storage to clients and servers in VMware, Citrix Xen, Windows, Hyper-V, UNIX, Apple Macintosh or mixed environments. The solutions are VMware certified.
The JetStor SAS 716U systems feature 16 bays for up to 64 terabytes of storage in a small 3U enclosure. The JetStor SAS 716U offers six Gigabit Ethernet ports using iSCSI or NFS/CIFS protocol host connections. The JetStor SAS 716U 10G provides two 10 Gigabit ports and two Gigabit Ethernet ports.
JetStor SAS 724U devices deliver 24 bays for up to 96 terabytes of capacity in a 4U enclosure. The JetStor SAS 724U has six Gigabit Ethernet ports using iSCSI or NFS/CIFS protocol host connections, whereas the JetStor SAS 724U 10G features two 10 Gigabit ports and two Gigabit Ethernet ports.
To address even the largest data stores, the JetStor unified storage arrays are scalable to 576 terabytes simply by linking inexpensive JBODS (Just a Bunch of Disks) units to them. The platforms can support up to five 24 bay JBODs or eight 16 bay JBODs.
The solutions reduce ownership costs by providing advanced capabilities:
The JetStor GUI RAID Manager management and monitoring application allows the JetStor systems to be remotely configured and proactively managed with automatic e-mail event notifications. Administrators no longer need to learn and operate different systems for file and block storage.Block-level, in-line data deduplication eliminates wasted disk space and avoids unnecessary disk writes
Block-level compression conserves disk space, reduces I/O pressures, and optimizes capacity for cloud deployments
Thin provisioning enhances storage efficiency while conserving energy and minimizing disk purchases
Unified authentication enables consistent account management for administrators and single sign-on by users
Support for up to 100,000 snapshots delivers data integrity and recovery
Backed by its 19-year record of outstanding support, AC&NC ensures a lifetime of 24/7 JetStor service. Subject-matter experts are standing by for on-demand phone consultations on optimal configuration and management. JetStor systems are backed by a three-year warranty covering all components, including optional cross-shipment of replacements.
“Tailored for small and medium sized companies and the remote sites of enterprises, JetStor unified storage arrays offer enterprise capabilities on a small business IT budget,” Leyzarovich said. “They make processing and storing ever increasing volumes of data easier and more affordable.”
