Marietta, GA -- March 1, 2012 -- Storage specialist Boston offers a variety of industry leading solutions at CeBIT 2012. A special highlight is the Boston Igloo E-Storage platform certified by software developer Open-E which will be presented in Hall 2 at stand E51 of Supermicro.
The Igloo Open-E Storage Appliance is the core of an integrated and consolidated networkstorageinfrastructure. By combining the Adaptec 6805Q RAID Controller and STEC's enterprise-class MACH16 SATA Solid-State Drive, data transfer rates can be increased up to 12 times compared to conventional hard drive-based RAID configurations in combination with the MaxCache 2.0 SSD caching software.
The system uses the storage management software DSS V6 by Open-E, which enables flexible network connections for NAS and iSCSI as well as for NDMP and WORM. For use in high availability scenarios the solution additionally offers software features for data security as well as complementary hardware equipment like redundant RAID controllers and power supplies.
Janusz Bak, CTO of Open-E, about the Igloo E-Storage: "Our lab tests showed that we can have a 12 times higher IO/s with this SSD Cache solution -- which means an excellent performance at a relatively low financial investment."
"STEC's enterprise-class MACH16 Solid-State Drives are ideally suited to bring the raw performance, required for implementations like those from Open-E," said Kim Gardner, STEC's senior sales director for EMEA. "We recognize that high-throughput solutions like Open-E Storage Software on the Boston Igloo E-Storage platforms can take advantage of advanced STEC CellCare(TM) Technology features to bring the endurance and reliability to the platform."
"The Storage Management Software from Open-E complements our Igloo Storage Systems perfectly. Through our co-operation with Open-E we can offer our customers Storage Appliances which can be instantly implemented and are best-in-class at price, performance, flexibility and security," states Wolfgang Walter, CEO of Boston Server & Storage Solutions GmbH.
Visitors of CeBIT can learn more about Igloo E-Storage at stand E51 and attend live demonstrations. More information about the system can be found here.
