"In partnership with target vertical market customers, we studied the I/Os per second and throughput requirements driven specifically by these new IoT workloads," said Bill Wuertz, SVP, product and solutions, Dot Hill. "To meet these new requirements we were able to quickly enhance our AssuredSAN controller design, demonstrating the inherent flexibility and modularity of our architecture. This allowed us to establish new levels of performance that meet and exceed the demanding requirements of today's evolving workloads. Dot Hill has been shipping this new AssuredSAN 6000 Series with key vertical market partners and now we are making it more broadly available to all partners."
The AssuredSAN 6000 Series solution includes high performance dual active redundant controllers with 40GB of total system cache, which allows the array to provide up to 12GB/s of sustained read performance and 5.7GB/s sustained write-performance. The AssuredSAN 6554 features eight 12Gb SAS ports for host connectivity. AssuredSAN 6000 Series arrays also leverage Dot Hill's patented RealStream software technology, a component of RealSto to support up to three times the throughput for applications involving complex Internet workloads.
"Dot Hill's innovative RealStream software and this new 6004 storage array controller create an essential foundation for the real-time storage needs of complex streaming workloads and the Internet of Things," said Brian Garrett, VP, ESG Lab, Enterprise Strategy Group. "By wrapping this software technology in elegant ultra-density chassis options for both HDD drive (HDD) and solid-state devices (SSDs), Dot Hill delivers petabytes of capacity and gigabytes per second of throughput without wasting valuable rack space."
The 6000 Series arrays are available with the Ultra56 AssuredSAN ultra-density chassis, which supports up to 1.5PB of capacity using 248 devices with any combination of SSDs and HDDs. In addition, AssuredSAN 6004 models meet both NEBS Level 3 carrier and MIL-STD government requirements. In the telecommunications market segment, NEBS equipment is required to meet carrier grade environmental standards for the highest possible reliability and availability. All AssuredSAN 6004 models deliver Dot Hill's proven 99.999% data availability and feature platinum-rated power supplies.
"This product has been designed to meet the specific requirements of our vertical market OEM customers," said Garrett Wein, VP WW OEM sales, Dot Hill. "These innovative Dot Hill arrays will support our growth strategy and expand our footprint in these markets which demand storage performance tuned for their applications."
6000 Series arrays are shipping through select OEMs and authorized partners.
