LONGMONT, Colo., Aug. 10. Dot Hill Systems Corp., a provider of world-class storage solutions and software for OEMs, open storage partners and system integrators, today announced its Intelligent Storage Networking (iSN) Version 2.3 storage virtualization software for OEMs and integrators.
The latest version of the company's heterogeneous storage management software, iSN 2.3, consolidates and virtualizes storage across different vendors and, via advanced storage features such as snapshots, thin provisioning, storage tiering, migration and replication, enables unified storage solutions for both NAS and SAN configurations which can simplify the IT environment.
The iSN 2.3 manages diverse storage systems as a single unified pool of storage, helping IT managers avoid vendor 'lock-in', reduce costs, increase storage management capabilities and reduce management complexity. By virtualizing physical resources and managing storage based on logical volumes, storage administrators can use iSN to eliminate "islands" of storage and utilize resources more efficiently.
The solution empowers OEMs to address multiple storage challenges such as cross-platform functionality, cost containment, business simplification, system availability and disaster recovery, while providing flexibility and scalability to support and effectively manage future data growth. Dot Hill iSN technology provides a foundation for a new class of midrange and enterprise storage systems -- for example, private or public cloud storage solutions to complement virtual server investments.
"Dot Hill's iSN solutions allow OEM partners to effectively address new and emerging requirements for storage management to improve efficiencies, manage growth and control costs. With the release of iSN version 2.3, we have fine-tuned this proven platform with configurations specifically engineered to better suit our storage OEMs and integrators," said Garrett Wein, vice president worldwide OEM sales at Dot Hill.
