JetStor X All-Flash/Hybrid Solutions Place Ultra-Performance, Extreme Scalability, and Advanced Functionality Within the Reach of Even Small- and Medium-sized Businesses
Pittsburgh, PA, January 31, 2017. AC&NC, a provider of leading RAID/ All Flash/ Hybrid Flash storage solutions, today introduced the JetStor X Series of all flash/hybrid flash arrays that can economically scale up to petabytes of data while delivering the performance, data protection, and functionality of costlier systems. They feature Intel’s latest D-1500 processors and chipset in a quad-core architecture, dual active controllers with quad-ported 10GBASE-T iSCSI with optional SFP+ or 16Gb FC card, and cutting-edge 12Gb SAS 3.0 technology with support for Non-Volatile Memory express (NVMe) to fully leverage flash capabilities.
JetStor X solutions are engineered for organizations of all sizes, public and private clouds, as well as remote and branch offices that require the fastest, most cost-effective storage, data sharing, and backup. They support VMware, Citrix, Microsoft Hyper-V, and KVM for virtualized storage, as well as VMware VAAI, and deliver the throughput, security, and scalability required for such sectors as media and entertainment, healthcare, financial, government, education, research, high-performance computing (HPC), and large-scale video surveillance.
“Today, many applications demand scalability and the throughput of flash storage, which make AC&NC’s JetStor X solutions very timely,” said Gene Leyzarovich, president of AC&NC. “Even SMBs, enterprise departments, and branch offices can now afford ultra-fast access to petabyte-scale data stores. Moreover, the JetStor X platforms enhance their value by enabling users to manage and protect their data easily and cost-effectively.”
Performance, Scalability & Functionality Once Reserved Only for Large Enterprises & Budgets
The JetStor X family of solutions are the most cost-effective storage for 10GbE IP SAN or 16Gb FC environments and their SAS-3 technology doubles the transfer rates of SAS-2, making them ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications like HPC or 8K and 4K video editing.
The platforms deliver 99.999 percent availability and include built-in data backup services such as volume snapshots, local and remote backups, and remote replication with traffic shaping to ensure the most efficient use of network bandwidth. Additionally, they feature rapid rebuilds of compromised RAID volumes, rebuilding only the written partitions in a volume to reduce recovery time and power consumption.
The JetStor X series offer exceptional, on-demand scalability without any downtime. The JetStor X systems are available in four models to ensure a high-value solution for every storage need.
The chassis support 3.5 drives of up to 10TB capacity and 2.5 drives of up to 4TB capacity. For pay as you grow expansion, each platform can support up to 10 JBODs, providing as much as 4 petabytes of capacity.
The arrays also provide such functionality as advanced RAID level support, thin provisioning, SSD caching, auto-tiering to contain storage costs, remote disaster recovery, and the enhanced QSOE 2.0 (JetStor Storage Optimization Engine) package to increase IOPS.
The JetStor X platforms ship with the latest JetStor SANOS 4.0 (SAN Operating System v4.0) to bring enterprise-level capabilities to even SMBs. The technology simplifies deployment and administration with an intuitive web user interface, a dashboard, and real-time notifications with event logging.
