Storwize Compresses Data

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Storwize Inc., the leading provider of real-time capacity optimization solutions, raised the bar for primary storage optimization today with the announcement of several new enhancements to its STN-6000p product line, including industry-leading compression levels and performance, as well as enhanced high availability capabilities for business-critical application environments.

The Storwize STN-6000p product family is an enterprise-class universal storage capacity optimization platform that helps companies manage data and storage infrastructure sprawl without compromising performance, all while delivering unprecedented cost savings, operational efficiencies and ROI. Designed specifically to address the unique requirements of primary storage, the latest version of the companys flagship solution features:

  • the industry’s first 15:1 primary storage capacity reduction based upon real-time compression, providing organizations dramatic savings in their most expensive storage tier;
  • industry-best performance with sustained throughput of more than 600 MB/sec from a single Storwize node, providing uncompromised performance for business-critical applications;
  • and new AutoSynch features for enhanced high-availability management in mission-critical environments.

    According to Lauren Whitehouse, Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, “The benefits of reducing data are felt at every point downstream from where the reduction occurs. It only makes sense that applying this function closer to the point of data creation will yield the greatest possible benefits. By attacking data reduction at primary storage, users will find they need far less equipment and can manage their data far more effectively. The story just makes sense.”
