IceWEB, a provider of storage technology and network security services, has won a contract from a federal government agency for its Inline TE 246 fiber channel storage area network.
The storage system is expected to be deployed in the agency’s video surveillance program. The initial order is for $100,000 and calls for 96Tb of storage. The platform is expected to more than triple to over 300Tb.
According to IceWEB, the Inline TE 246 is expected to be designed to deliver maximum data throughput for high bandwidth video and other data intensive applications. This high performance storage system combines fiber channel connectivity with serial attached SCSI and serial ATA drive technology. Its multi-tiered architecture provides customers with the flexibility to support a variety of applications on a single platform, the company added.
John Signorello, chairman and CEO of IceWEB, said: The requirements for geospatial storage within the federal arena are enormous. Our Inline products have been designed specifically for customers that require a rapid ingest of geospatial imagery and video data. The Inline TE 246 ships with our CosmicFORCE 5.0 toolset which provides managed scalability and secure indexing of data, a critical requirement for the geospatial intelligence community.
