JMR Showcases BlueStor PeSAN RAID

LAS VEGAS -- JMR Electronics, Inc., a leading technology provider of scalable storage systems for video and data intensive applications, today announced that they will showcase their new line of BlueStorTM PeSANTM RAID storage solutions in multiple partner booths at NAB 2008 in Las Vegas, NV.

JMR is introducing their new BlueStorTM line of SAS Expander JBODs and PeSAN equipped RAID storage solutions at multiple locations, including ATTO Technologies Booth SL 4320, EditShare Booth SL 9820, GMAX Storage Solutions Booth SL 13908 and at the ProMax Digital Caf at the Sands Expo on Tuesday evening.

The BlueStorTM PeSANTM RAID line was developed to be the ultimate in high performance direct attached storage for content creation, video editing and digital film applications requiring extremely high sustained throughput and robust operation. The BlueStorTM solutions combine robust operation with cost-efficient implementation, driving storage costs down to well below one dollar per Gigabyte.

The BlueStorTM products incorporate patented PeSANTM technology, which is based on the new PCI Express (PCIe) external expansion and cable connection standard. The
technology extends the PCIe bus electrically and mechanically, enabling the use of more PCIe based controllers and more efficiently leveraging the underutilized power in today’s multicore processors. This allows users to expand their PC/Mac, server or workstation’s core logic PCIe bus outside of the box to enable the utmost in scalable direct attached storage performance.

Optimized for video applications, PeSAN’s open system architecture delivers wide bandwidth, high performance expandable storage using a switched architecture that avoids costly storage bus bridges or components. Overheads from protocol conversion to serial protocols such as Fibre Channel, Inifiniband and Ethernet are totally eliminated, resulting in sustained raw data rates exceeding 2,000 MB/s.
