Storage Industry Leader Introducing Sophisticated Cloud Storage Solution, Total 6G SAS Solution and NAS products for SMBs
Hsinchu-Taiwan/ Milpitas-CA – PROMISE Technology Inc., a leading supplier of versatile RAID storage solutions catering to customers from enterprise to consumer, announces its total RAID solutions at Computex Taipei 2010. PROMISE Technology will present a complete portfolio of industry-leading solutions in SATA / SAS connectivity. Among the solutions featured will be the High Availability RAID Storage solution for Cloud service providers, the total 6 Gb/s SAS solutions including controllers and JBOD expansion units, the new VessRAID Storage Systems available with extended NAS functionality and the new NAS products for SMB applications with Intel Pineview CPU. Additionally PROMISE will be introducing the latest addition to their VTrak family of high-performance storage solutions, the VTrak S3000, a robust set of data service appliances providing IT administrators a wide range of storage services and leading-edge tools to manage their organization’s mission-critical data.
Highlights of the PROMISE stand are:
Cloud Storage Solution: The PROMISE VTrak E-Class is high availability fibre channel RAID 6 subsystem, equipped with Dual Controllers, Dual I/Os, Dual Powers and Dual Fans. The VTrak E-Class can expand the storage capacity with J-Class JBOD enclosure, to provide 80 HDDs, up to 160 TB storage capacity per system. For Cloud service providers requiring highly expandable storage systems, the VTrak family of products is compatible with both SAS and SATA drives, which allows service providers the ability to adopt high-capacity low-cost SATA hard drives when building up their systems, saving substantial cost while retaining the data safeguard of RAID equipped storage units. PROMISE will also demonstrate the DSA (Data Service Appliance) compliance server product, VTrak S3000 during Computex, which provides a one-stop-shop solution to Cloud service providers, enterprise datacenters and digital audio/video post-production houses
Storage Surveillance Solution: With the trend of surveillance evolving to IP and high-resolution, an IP-based highly reliable storage system is required for deploying an IP surveillance solution. PROMISE introduces the full range of FC/iSCSI/NAS storage solutions to fulfill this surveillance deployment. Whatever scale the surveillance solution requires, PROMISE can provide corresponding solutions to fit small, medium or large scale deployments, ranging from less than 10 cameras to more than 1000 cameras. With PROMISE RAID inside and a highly expandable structure, the PROMISE storage solution can ensure the real-time video recording being saved on safe and reliable storage systems. The PROMISE RAID storage solutions have already been adopted by a wide range of industry leading, globally recognized surveillance providers.
GreenRAID: Making Green products has always been PROMISE’s commitment, PROMISE products are eco-friendly in both their hardware and software design, as well as a green manufacturing process. With the adoption of an 80 PLUS power supply, the VessRAID and VTrak Jx30 products make more efficient use of power. In the software design category, VessRAID implements the MAID 2.0 complete level support in its latest firmware upgrade, which reduces the unnecessary power consumption and waste during hard drives idling. Moreover, VessRAID implements additional eco-friendly features such as wake-on-LAN, wake-on-SAS and power scheduling, making a greatly more efficient use of power.
6G SAS Total Solution: SuperTrak EX 6Gb/s SAS controllers and VTrak Jx30 6Gb/s SAS JBOD, coupled with SSD (Solid state disks), the PROMISE 6G SAS solution provides an easy-to-adopt, high performance and power saving storage upgrade for server storage to next generation 6G SAS.
Software ROMB (RAID on Motherboard) Solution: The PROMISE Software ROMB solution supports AMD or Intel chipsets, provides Motherboards and servers vendors a one-stop solution to rapidly implement RAID functionalities on motherboards. The PROMISE ROMB solution provides the RAID engine which can leverage the CPU or Chipset processing power to enable the RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 and SATA HDDs support. Additionally, the ROMB solution also provides advanced management software – PROMISE WebPAM web-based management software and Windows/Linux drivers, providing server and motherboard manufacturers a quick adoption and value added RAID solutions.
Complete Portfolio of SMB NAS: Introducing VessRAID 1000i iSCSI series (2U to 3U/ 8bay/ 12 bay/ 16 bay with 4*1Gb iSCSI ports) new upgrade with NAS features support, Intel Pineview-based SmartStor NS4700/6700 (4bau/ 6bay tower type), providing SMB users a full range of powerful NAS solutions
