IRVINE, Calif. -- iStor Networks, Inc. , an innovative technology leader in the development of network storage solutions today announced that their technology partnership with Fujitsu Ltd. resulted in record breaking performance. Using a powerful PRIMEQUEST Server, the companies reached a record throughput of 1046 MB/S and 85786 IOPS via the 10GbE iSCSI connection.

This achievement was made possible by the coordinated efforts of Hitachi High-Technologies Inc. (HHT) who represent Neterion’s line of 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters in Japan, ASUSTek, provider of i316-A1 disk arrays, iStor, and Fujitsu’s Platform Center department. The four companies have worked hard, in the past few months, to put together a complete iSCSI over 10 GbE solutions, thoroughly tested and validated, ready for end-user customer’s adoption.

This configuration includes, on the target side, the 10GbE version of iStor’s flagship product, the GigaStor ATX™ inside an ASUS chassis and directly connected to a single iSCSI initiator. The GigaStor ATX is an iSCSI storage subsystem based on a highly integrated and powerful system on a chip, a RAID/iSCSI/TCP/IP high performance storage network processor capable of sustaining up to 10 GbE iSCSI traffic. On the initiator side, the setup utilizes a Fujitsu PRIMEQUEST platform which can be equipped with up to 8 Intel Itanium® 2 dual-core processors, and a Neterion Xframe II® V-NIC™ adapter, allowing high-speed 10 Gbps connectivity on Fujitsu’s PRIMEQUEST Itanium® based servers.

“Fujitsu welcomes the coordinated efforts of iStor Networks, Neterion, Hitachi High-Technologies and ASUSTek in creating a new iSCSI over 10Gb Ethernet solution that provides state-of-the-art features and cutting-edge technology for high-speed broadband data communications,” said Katsuhiro Tanimura, general manager of the ISV Center at Fujitsu Limited’s Platform Solution Center. “We are also very excited with the solution’s recent 10Gb Ethernet transport performance achievement at our ISV Center using our mission-critical Intel® architecture PRIMEQUEST servers. We look forward to leveraging the performance combination of these products for the benefit of our customers in the future.”
