Enhance Launches System

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. -- Enhance Technology USA is now shipping the flagship UltraStor storage system, the 2U 8-disk (RS8) & 3U 16-disk (RS16) high availability rack mountable storage system, bundled with disks and onsite support. Intended to provide easy installation, simple management, and next-day service to the SMB market segment, the populated and service-packed UltraStor™ system is also widely used by workgroup of enterprises, and offers expandability that greatly reduced the overall cost of ownership.

The UltraStor™ RAID system is scalable and expandable. Starting half-populated storage capacity, the UltraStor™ RS system is scalable up to 80 TB with current 1 TB hard drives. At fewer than 50 cents per gigabyte, it is priced less than competing products and at a fraction of the cost from Sun, IBM, and HP, presenting an exceptional value and best cost/capacity ratio. The primary RAID embedded RS RAID system ships with latest core Intel storage processor, and expansion is done through daisy-chaining four (4+) RS16 JS JBOD systems via built-in SAS expansion port (MiniSAS SFP8088), providing dynamic data expansion path.

There are three types of UltraStor™ RAID system that are ready to address customers’ need for storage; respectively, the high performance RS8/16 SS with SAS connectivity, the high availability RS8/16 FS with Fibre Channel connectivity, and the high bandwidth RS8/16 P4 with GbE connectivity. All three models are expandable and are accepting both low cost SATA disks and high reliability SAS disks. The UltraStor™ RS 8/16 systems have been widely used in data intensive applications such as backup storage, clustering, near-line storage or off-line archive data vault, 10-bit high definition video-editing, etc. While the RS8/16 SS SAS model produces the highest throughput and used in backup and clustering environments and the RS8/16 FS Fibre model is largely deployed in SAN application, the latest RS8/16 P4 iSCSI model comes with four (4+) gigabit Ethernet ports and is ideal for IP SAN and centrally managed storage applications.
