Active Storage Offers Raid for Macs

TORRANCE, Calif. -- Active Storage, Inc. today unveiled the Active Storage XRAID, a powerful and compact high-availability RAID system for Apple® users providing up to 16TB (Terabytes) of storage in a sleek enclosure occupying only 3 units (3U) of rack space, all managed with the industry's only native Mac® OS X management suite.

The design of the system offers almost unlimited capacity and performance expansion in a Fibre Channel network. Low cost expansion is possible using a cost-effective Active Storage XRAID Expansion enclosure, doubling the capacity for up to 32TB of storage using a single set of redundant RAID controllers.

“When we first saw the Active Storage XRAID we knew we found a perfect replacement for the discontinued Apple Xserve RAID. We had been looking for an elegant and easy to use RAID, offering an outstanding hardware feature set, built by some of the best storage engineering minds anywhere. And with the Active Storage XRAID we get all of that,” said David W. Gohara, Ph.D. at Washington University in St. Louis, MO.
