MILPITAS, Calif. -- LSI Logic Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today introduced the Engenio 1932, the newest member of its Simplicity-managed family of enterprise-class storage systems. Available immediately to OEM partners, the new system is designed to meet the unique challenges of a wide range of users. Featuring Fibre Channel (FC) host connectivity and equipped with SAS back-end technology, the model 1932 provides entry-level enterprise and departmental customers an affordable, easy-to-manage Storage Area Network (SAN) solution for improved availability, performance, scalability and data consolidation.
As the third member of the Simplicity-managed family of Engenio arrays, the model 1932 is ideal for enterprise users with departments or remote offices that need to easily integrate inexpensive storage into existing FC environments to accommodate growth and connectivity. With the flexibility to deploy the system in a direct-attached storage (DAS) configuration and then seamlessly transition to a SAN configuration when ready, the model 1932 is also appealing to smaller organizations planning initial SAN installations. Managed by Simplicity Storage Manager software, the new system provides customers an intuitive, task-based management structure that significantly reduces the complexity of installation, configuration, management and diagnostic tasks.
SAS continues to gain tremendous deployment traction and market diversity. Its integration with Fibre Channel host connections will enable SAS to keep building on this momentum, said Greg Schultz, founder and senior analyst, StorageIO Group. Systems that can offer this combination, such as the new Engenio 1932 from LSI, further validate the strength and flexibility of SAS and present an appealing SAN option to customers ranging from enterprise departments, remote office branch office (ROBO) to growing SMBs.
