Zetera Demos Higher Performance

LAS VEGAS -- Zetera Corporation, a developer of breakthrough network storage technology, today announced that it will be demonstrating NBOD (networked bunch of disks) solutions with performance exceeding 500 megabytes per second. Zetera’s NBOD product demonstration will be in the Marvell booth (booth # 1848), Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

Zetera NBOD products are the first to offer SMBs a solution to bridge the gap between DAS and iSCSI SANs. Based on the Marvell Orion processor, NBOD solutions offer the networked benefits of iSCSI SANs, enabling one or more servers to share the storage of single or multiple NBOD devices. As individual servers require more storage, more capacity is allocated from the NBOD device. At the same time, NBOD solutions preserve the simplicity of DAS, requiring only general IT staff with basic skills in networking to easily deploy, configure and manage the storage system, regardless of its size.

“The real-world benefits of NBOD products are gaining significant traction with our customers, enabling them to experience the benefits of SAN without specialists or an inflated budget,“ said Chuck Cortright, Zetera’s president and CEO. “Our demonstration of performance exceeding half-a-gigabyte per second from a single enclosure is proof that you don’t need overly complex, overly expensive technology to deliver on the vision of SAN.”
