LSI Adds 8-Gig FC, Disk Encryption

MILPITAS, Calif. -- LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced enhancements to the Engenio(R) 7900 Storage System which provide midrange storage area network (SAN) customers with a "future-proof" storage infrastructure designed to meet the demands of continuous data growth and evolving application, configuration and capacity requirements.

New LSI(TM) Engenio 7900 features and functionality include 8Gb/s Fibre Channel (8GFC) interfaces, which provide up to twice the bandwidth per channel between server and storage, and pay-as-you-grow scalability up to 448 drives for nearly double the capacity. SafeStore(TM) encryption services also have been added for comprehensive data-at-rest security using self-encrypting drives (SED), as well as a simplified management interface that doesn't sacrifice control.

"Meeting enterprises' evolving infrastructure and application requirements is always a critical challenge for IT suppliers, but in these difficult economic times, IT executives also require solutions that protect IT investments," said Richard Villars, vice president of Storage System and IT Executive Strategies at IDC. "Solutions like the LSI Engenio 7900 that support 8Gb/s FC and advanced data encryption in a scalable platform provide a solid foundation for enterprises that need to deal with evolving storage demands."
