Dot Hill Launches FC, SAS Systems

CARLSBAD, Calif. --
Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq: HILL), a world-class provider of entry-level and midrange storage solutions for OEMs and system integrators (SIs), today announced availability of a new line of 2U, 24-drive high performance, high density external RAID storage systems that incorporate small form factor (2.5-inch) hard disk drives and solid state disks (SSD). OEMs and system integrators currently evaluating the new solutions expect to start offering the products through their routes to market during the current calendar quarter.

The 2722 Fibre Channel (4Gb FC) and 2522 Serial Attached SCSI (3Gb SAS) arrays feature intelligent, fully redundant enterprise-class controllers, with optional support for Dot Hill's AssuredSnap(TM) snapshot and AssuredCopy(TM) volume copy data protection software modules. In addition, a 2U, 24-bay 2122 SAS JBOD unit is available to facilitate expansion of the 2722 or 2522 arrays.

Featuring a variety of drive options (10,000 or 15,000 RPM SAS, 5400 RPM SATA and SATA-compatible SSD drives), these systems will support a maximum of 96 SAS drives for a total capacity of 28.8 terabytes based on the newest 300 gigabyte SAS drives. An existing Dot Hill 2U, 12-drive 3.5-inch SAS expansion chassis with SAS, SATA or SSD drives can also be intermixed with the 2722 and 2522 arrays to accommodate both the performance and capacity requirements of demanding applications within the same storage pool or in tiered storage deployment, supporting configurations of up to 79.2 terabytes.
