Xyratex Announces OneStor

HAVANT, U.K. -- Xyratex Ltd. (Nasdaq: XRTX - News), a leading provider of enterprise-class data storage subsystems and storage process technology, today announced the OneStor SP1224s, the second member of the company's versatile OneStor Extensible Storage Platform (ESP) family. The SP1224s is a 2U, 24-drive storage system based on 2.5-inch drives and provides 85+ percent efficient power conversion. Compared with standard 3.5-inch drives, these Small Form Factor (SFF) drives consume less power with double the performance density, making the OneStor SP1224s ideal for transaction-intensive applications. The OneStor ESP family utilizes common Field Replaceable Units (FRU), Xyratex Intelligent Platform Manager (IPM) software, and Storage Bridge Bay (SBB) 2.0 compatibility -- enabling server and storage OEMs to reduce both product ramp-up time and inventory costs for spares.

"Information needs continue to accelerate in terms of scale and diversity, posing major product management and time-to-market challenges for storage solution providers," said Richard Villars, vice president of storage systems research at IDC. "Solutions like Xyratex's OneStor platform allow storage OEMs to quickly add new functions like IOPS-optimized storage with minimal impact on testing/qualification processes and inventory levels. With such a solution, OEMs can quickly and efficiently meet customers' needs for storage architectures that support power and space efficient data centers."
