Newest FC SAN Storage Arrays from AC&NC Encrypt Data at Rest to Minimize Threats While Offering the Best Combination of Price and Performance on the Market
Pittsburgh, PA, June 13, 2016. AC&NC, a provider of leading RAID/Hybrid Flash/All Flash storage solutions, has introduced its newest line of JetStor FC SAN storage systems to provide customers with unmatched security, performance, scalability, and value. Their support of Self Encrypting Drives (SEDs) safeguards data at rest, making them ideal for users with rigorous security requirements such as healthcare providers and federal, state, and local government agencies. With state-of-the-art 16Gb fibre interfaces and featuring dual active controllers for high availability, the JetStor FC SAN arrays also target such applications as video editing, CCTV, virtual tape libraries, and disk-to-disk backups.
“With so many organizations struggling to protect their data, our new FC SAN arrays are a timely addition to the JetStor portfolio,” said Gene Leyzarovich, president of AC&NC. “By using password-protected SEDs that conform to Trusted Computing Group (TCG) specifications, users significantly diminish threats like theft or tampering with minimal impact on service levels.”
The suite of new JetStor products includes:
JetStor 812F/FD (single/dual controllers)
JetStor 816F/FD (single/dual controllers)
JetStor 824F/FD (single/dual controllers) 2.5 inch drives
JetStor 864F/FD (single/dual controllers).
To meet a broad range of needs, the arrays range in size from 12 bay thru 64 bay units. They support as many as 256 drives for scalability as well as the latest 10TB HGST drives. Moreover, the 824F/FD systems support 2TB SSD drives for high-speed capacity.
JetStor solutions are deployed by customers in all major industries for a wide variety of applications, including serving as platforms for virtualization (VMware, Hyper-V, Citrix XEN, and KVM) and VDI.
Bringing Functionality and Efficiency to the SAN
The JetStor solutions offer a host of capabilities to improve the performance and availability of SAN deployments. They feature DataBolt™ Bandwidth Optimizer technology for balancing faster host and slower SAS or SATA devices. They support Clone disk, which allows users to add larger disk drives to the RAID set that have already been created. Their use of SSD automatic monitor clone (AMC) extends the lifetime of solid-state drives. The devices will spin down idle disks to lower power consumption by 20–50 percent, increasing drive longevity and reducing heat output and ownership costs. Their fan modules will dynamically adjust their rotational speed when the controller detects any temperature changes inside the chassis or hard disks drives, thereby avoiding overheating and reducing noise during operation.
The JetStor FC SAN arrays support RAID levels 0, 1, 10(1E), 3, 5, 6, 30, 50, 60, 00, 100, Single Disk and JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks).
The JetStor platforms will be available in the United Kingdom and EMEA from longtime AC&NC partner, VSPL. “Having supported JetStor solutions for over 15 years, we’re eager to offer these cutting-edge FC SAN arrays to our customers,” said Quentin Gadd, Sales & Business Development Manager for VSPL. “They’re perfect for building, maintaining, and expanding SANs reliably and cost-effectively.”
