Pillar Pushes Capacity

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- As part of the companys initiative to drive the highest levels of storage efficiency, Pillar Data Systems today announces the availability of 1TB SATA drives for its Pillar Axiom storage system. The new drives push the Axiom’s overall usable capacity to 760TB.

Additionally, Pillar recently completed an extensive survey from its base of more than 250 customers and found that on average, Pillar Axiom users see an industry leading 62-percent written disk utilization. One-third of those customers are utilizing more than 80-percent of their disk array resources. No other open systems storage array on the market today can deliver those levels of disk utilization with minimal to no performance degradation.

“What separates Pillar even further is that these figures are written utilization, not allocated, as is customary by all other vendors,” said Arun Taneja, founder and consulting analyst, The Taneja Group. “These are clearly industry leading utilization rates and support Pillar’s position that its Axiom storage system is one of the most efficient disk systems on the market today. By driving utilization rates so high without suffering performance losses, Pillar customers are deriving maximum value and efficiency out of their storage investments.”
