SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Intransa, the global leader of scalable, network-centric IP storage solutions, today introduced the StorStac Performance Controller Unit 25 (PCU25), the latest high availability performance member of the storage industrys most scalable enterprise IP SAN. The StorStac Storage System PCU25, joins Intransas growing StorStac System family, to deliver increased high availability, 1 and 2GbE support, and improved performance for customers with content rich server and network-based applications such as video surveillance, imaging, and server and storage consolidation.
Enterprise SANs based on iSCSI/IP standards have rapidly expanded to support mission-critical data storage and business applications in data centers. In addition, the need for high performance data throughput has increased as access to shared storage without disruption to content rich applications or users, is on the rise. With an Intransa PCU25 high performance storage system, organizations with high bandwidth needs can independently scale performance and high availability by adding controllers, or by increasing disk spindles for capacity. Doing so avoids customers having to add completely new storage systems, or forcing migration of storage to a new system as requirements grow, both potentially disruptive to the organization.
The PCU25 offers higher performance than the competition, even over Intransas proven 2GbE performance controller, the PCU20, said Jeff Whitney, Intransas vice president of marketing. There are many customer environments where higher performance will be very useful. When deployed for server and storage consolidation with Intransa StorAlliance Technology Partner VMWare for Microsoft, Linux or Unix environments, the additional performance delivered by the PCU25 will be truly appreciated. Of course, for those needing even higher performance, Intransa was the first to offer a truly enterprise-ready 10GbE solution, based on the award-winning PCU100 controller.
