Xiotech introduced its latest storage solution the new Emprise7000 Edge system that supports up to 10 ISE (160 terabytes) to cater to the growing demand for affordability with flexible, scalable architectures in organisations.
The storage system is built on the company’s patented Intelligent Storage Element technology and enables users to limit their storage costs through a five-year limited warranty.
In addition, it offers storage management based on web services as ICON Manager and Virtual View easily provision and manage storage in virtualised server environments.
In a Xiotech survey conducted on more than 400 storage administrators, 77% of the respondents said their storage budgets have either remained flat or reduced in the next 18 months.
Mike Hoch, vice president of marketing, Xiotech, said: We also saw from our survey that organisations greatly value flexible, adaptable storage system architecture, it’s one of the top three characteristics respondents said they look for when buying a new storage system.
He further said “Because ISE technology moves cache, management and drive functions close to the storage itself, it allows for component-designed storage solutions which scale as users’ business needs change and protect those users’ initial investment in storage. These are the ultimate in flexible storage architectures, and when you add in the superior reliability the systems offer, they become a tremendous value-add to the small or medium-sized business.
