Reldata Intros Storage System

PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- RELDATA, the leading supplier of a new generation of consolidated storage systems, today announced the 9240 SAS/SATA Unified Storage System, expanding customer storage options while delivering unrivaled value in the enterprise iSCSI storage market. This announcement closely follows RELDATAs release of its 10 GbE 9240 Unified Storage Gateway.

RELDATA’s Unified Storage System delivers integrated iSCSI SAN, NAS and WAN replication functions on a single virtualized platform that delivers best-in-class performance. The system is easy to implement, operate, and manage, yet delivers enterprise-class functionality. Customers can independently scale disk storage capacity, SAN/NAS/WAN replication storage services, and network performance without application disruption. This “pay-as-you-grow” design eliminates the need for forklift box upgrades – and the downtime it causes – and liberates customers from vendor lock-in and the associated predatory pricing for additional disk capacity.

RELDATA’s new iSCSI storage system combines RELDATA’s 9000 Series Unified Storage Gateway with Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (SATA) disk storage, providing customers with a seamless, integrated solution that continues RELDATA’s unrivaled record of delivering performance that matches the NetApp FAS 6070 at half the price. International Data Corp. projects that SAS drives will overtake FC drives by 2009, with demand for SAS drives showing a 150% increase over the next two years. IDC expects iSCSI SAN revenue to grow at 20 times the rate of FC SAN through 2011.

“RELDATA clearly understands the needs of the market and has produced a very attractive solution that benefits both end-users and VARs,” said Rich Kuhar, Vice President of Arkay. “I can give my customers exactly what they need.
They can either purchase a complete 9240 SAS/SATA Unified Storage System from me with the vendor responsible for all software and hardware functionality, or I can give them a 9240 Unified Storage Gateway with disks from their favorite manufacturer. Either way, the customer retains the freedom to add other disks they have on their floor and seamlessly deliver IP SAN, NAS and WAN Replication from one virtualized storage pool.“
