SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Pillar Data Systems, the leading provider of Application-Aware storage systems, today unveiled the Pillar Axiom 300. Ideally suited for small-to-medium size enterprises (SME’s), the Axiom 300 drives down infrastructure and operational costs, while reducing business risk and complexity of data storage. The Axiom 300 is exceptionally easy and quick to configure and deploy into existing storage environments. Ongoing management and maintenance are streamlined with Pillar’s clean, intuitive user interface and unique Guided Maintenance functionality.

The Axiom 300 enables Pillar channel and reseller partners the opportunity to offer a storage system with enterprise capabilities priced for midsized organizations. Some of the unique features include:

  • Eighty percent disk utilization: the highest in the industry

  • Costs are reduced and utilization rates increase when multiple applications and tiers of storage are consolidated into one single platform, while maintaining effective Quality of Service (QoS) for each;

  • Pre-configured and user-customizable profiles: allowing administrators to optimize the arrays for specific applications;

  • Thin Provisioning: increasing utilization of storage hardware and easier provisioning with less disruption to users/applications, and when combined with QoS provides the highest utilization rates in the industry.

“For small to mid-sized customers looking to drive down infrastructure and operational costs while reducing their business risk, the Pillar Axiom 300 offers a very interesting and viable solution as it reduces storage management complexity and Application-Aware visibility within their storage systems,” said Janet Waxman, vice president, hardware channels research, IDC.
