SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Intransa, the global innovator of network-centric IP storage solutions, today announced three additional storage enclosures for the StorStac System SCE3 with 3.75 terabytes per enclosure, the SCE7 serving up 7.5 and the SCE11 with 11.25 terabytes. Each SCE supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5, and 10 to meet the most stringent reliability and uptime requirements. All Intransa StorStac Systems deliver proven, independently scalable performance and capacity in an affordable, pay-as-you-grow model as part of a complete business solution available through Intransa StorPartners worldwide.

“The flexibility of the Intransa StorStac System enables customers to add capacity SCE enclosures for growing application storage needs or to increase performance and availability by adding PCU controllers,” said Lee Zipin, vice president of engineering at Intransa. “With our new SCEs, customers have even more flexibility when building a new installation or adding to an existing StorStac System.”

Architected to scale from 3.75 to 1,000 terabytes of RAID-protected, IP network-based storage in a single system, each StorStac System is composed of one or more Performance Controller Units (PCUs) for connectivity to application servers, plus one or more Storage Capacity Enclosures (SCEs) delivering SATA-II storage. Customers worldwide use Intransa for a wide variety of application needs, including data warehousing, secondary storage, consolidation, video surveillance, medical and digital imaging, IP television (IPTV), video entertainment post production and video-on-demand (VOD).

The SCE3, SCE7 and SCE11 join the 4 terabyte SCE4, 8 terabyte SCE8 and 12 terabyte SCE12 in the Intransa StorStac System product line. All products are integrated with the Intransa Performance Controller Unit 20 (PCU20). One PCU20 can aggregate dual inbound 1 Gigabit Ethernet (1GbE) connections into a single, high performance 2 Gigabit Ethernet (2GbE) pipe. Up to four PCU20s are supported in a single StorStac configuration delivering 880 Megabyte/seconds throughput. All StorStac Systems can be centrally managed using Intransa’s powerful and proven StorControl software with both GUI and CLI interfaces included.

The new Intransa SCE units are available in StorStac Systems through Intransa StorPartner Channel Program resellers and systems integrators around the world.Intransa Inc.
