Pillar Adds Bigger Drives

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Pillar Data Systems, the leading provider of Application-Aware storage systems, today announced the availability of 450GB 15,000 RPM fibre channel drives for the Pillar Axiom 600. The new disk drives add 50 percent more fibre channel capacity to the Axiom, all of which is backed by Pillars 80 percent utilization guarantee. The Pillar Axiom now offers the broadest range of disk drive options in the industry, allowing customers to intermix both fibre channel and SATA drives in multiple capacity points.

“As drive capacities increase in size, it becomes more and more important to work with a storage vendor whose product can not only take full advantage of the performance of these newer drives, but also the expanded capacity,” said Mike Workman, CEO and Chairman, Pillar Data Systems. “The Axiom’s unrivaled utilization rates mean customers can reduce their storage purchases by more than 50 percent, without sacrificing capacity or performance. Once again, Pillar takes storage efficiency to a whole new level.”
