Can scale to hundreds of terabytes, and deliver up to 4Gbps throughput
Celeros, a provider of data storage appliances, has launched its SmartSAN family of next generation multiprotocol SAN platforms, which can scale to hundreds of terabytes, and deliver up to 4GB/s throughput.
These platforms are designed for small and medium enterprise data centres requiring consolidated centralised storage with high uptime, efficient power usage, and certified compatibility with all virtualisation environments.
Redundant active-active controllers, persistent cache backup, hardware-assisted RAID-6 and proactive drive health monitoring are designed to ensure the stored data is fully protected and continuously available.
SmartSAN XT23S family utilises next generation 6Gb/s SAS backplane technology and the new high performance dual port SAS drives with 6Gb/s interface to deliver flexible, high performance platforms with single or dual active-active controllers.
Each XT23S-FC Fibre Channel controller delivers four 8Gb/s host ports, while XT23S-iSCSI controllers are each equipped with four 1Gb/s iSCSI interfaces.
Celeros CEO Hossein Alaee said Celeros SmartSAN delivers the high level of reliability and uptime affordably, and also gives ultra low power consumption, enabling SMB users to realise substantial savings in their operational costs.
The company claims the cornerstone of SmartSAN platform is a redundant, modular system design with no single point of failure and ultra low power consumption.
