Copan Extends 300 Series

LONGMONT, Colo. -- COPAN Systems (www.copansystems.com), the leader in persistent data storage solutions, today announced the availability of a series of enhancements to its Revolution 300 Series Platform providing increased performance and capacity to what was already the industrys densest and most cost effective storage solution for the long-term storage, protection and retrieval of persistent data.

The Revolution 300 Series combines the energy efficiency of Enterprise MAID (Massive Array of Idle Disks) with the power of data de-duplication to dramatically reduce acquisition and operational cost and complexity. With new drive configuration options introduced today, COPAN Systems provides additional flexibility for large enterprises to architect the most effective way to store and manage its rapidly growing volumes of persistent data – data that is typically written once but accessed infrequently.

The Revolution 300 Series now offers up to 896 TB of raw capacity, or 8 PB of de-duplicated data - in less than a single square meter footprint. In addition, with the new 40-drive VTL cache option COPAN Systems can now support over 1000 concurrent data streams. With this increased capacity and flexibility, the Revolution 300 Series expands the power efficiency and cost saving – as low as 25 cents/GB – long associated with its patented Enterprise MAID (Massive Array of Idle Disks) platform.

“We are the Persistent Data Storage Platform with the only Enterprise MAID OS in the world. MAID does not equal spin down and the Revolution 300 series introduced the market to how true MAID and de-duplication delivers exponential ROI in managing the cost and complexity of persistent data – which represents the majority of data stored by companies today,” said Chris Santilli, CTO, COPAN Systems. “As more enterprises understand the value of managing their persistent data on a single purpose built platform, we have continued to evolve to serve the most demanding data center environments. Our new enhancements today further extend COPAN Systems’ lead in density and cost efficiency.”
