SAN JOSE, Calif. -- BlueArc Corporation, a leader in scalable, high-performance unified network storage, today announced the introduction of the Titan 1100 storage system, the latest addition to its flagship Titan family of storage products. The Titan 1100 brings small to medium enterprises and vertical customers the performance advantages of proprietary hardware-based architecture at a competitive price point, starting at $75,000, a 25% reduction from the company's lowest list price on existing offerings.
BlueArc's Titan 1100 can serve both as a building block or the centerpiece of a growing company's network storage infrastructure. The 1100 offers support for two-node clustering and can scale up to 128 terabytes of data. Unlike many competitive solutions, which often reduce software capabilities in mid-market offerings, the Titan 1100 offers the same robust software, data management and virtualization suite featured in BlueArc's Titan 2000 product line. Integrated with recent archiving, clustering, security and disaster recovery enhancements, BlueArc's Titan 1100 provides a foundation for superior performance and cost-effective use of multiple storage solutions in a system that scales easily with file size, volume, users and applications.
"It is important to consider that BlueArc has a feature-rich, field-proven, easy to manage, scalable storage system that is an excellent solution for a wide range of applications and data types," said Tony Asaro, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "This type of value is appropriate for any market as long as it fits within budget constraints. The Titan 1100 presents a greenfield opportunity for BlueArc with a price point that opens up new markets and it provides accretive value to its existing customers through tiered storage and remote/branch office environments. This should dispel the notion that BlueArc is only for large environments and will cement the idea that BlueArc also provides value to the mid-market as well."
