Infortrend Debuts Arrays

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- RAID storage
expert Infortrend(r) today unveiled two new systems in its 'Cube'
series: the EonStor(r) A08S-C2131 and A08S-C2132 SAS-to-SATA-II desktop
RAID arrays. Combining affordability and reliability, the new eight-bay
arrays support cost-effective SATA-II hard drives to provide up to 8TB
of storage capacity and come with enhanced security features to protect
data in the event of hard disk failure. The systems' multi-lane SAS
host interface offers ample bandwidth to handle high transactions and
intensive throughput demanded by applications such as video editing,
online retail and banking.

In a compact enclosure approximately the size of a standard PC tower,
the arrays' unique desktop/tower convertible design is the result of
direct customer feedback, allowing users to conveniently position these
storage devices according to their space requirements. Also, for the
first time, customers can choose either black or silver enclosures to
complement the look of their PC or Macintosh environments.

"These latest EonStor systems meet customers' needs for
high-performance, extremely efficient data storage with guaranteed
real-time access that can handle multi-stream, high-bandwidth
workflows," said Thomas Kao, director of product planning at Infortrend
Technology Inc. "Our compact SAS Cube subsystems deliver affordable,
enterprise-quality RAID storage without any compromise."
