Delivering Scalable & High Performance Fibre Storage Solutions to the Markets
Release Date: December 02, 2008
Santa Fe Springs, CA. – Enhance Technology, Inc., a world leader in data storage solutions for Enterprise and SMBs, is proud to announce it has joined the Emulex Technology Partner Program, ensuring compatibility between Enhance Technology’s RS8 FS and RS16 FS Hybrid RAID storage with Emulex’s LightPulse® family of Host Bus Adapters (HBAs), including the LP1150/1100x and LPe1150/1100x. By combining Enhance Technology and Emulex solutions, high-performance RAID storage meets high-performance HBAs to offer superior interoperability and scalability.
The RS8 FS and RS16 FS are both 4Gb Fibre-to-SAS/SATA RAID storage devices, designed to operate in mission critical and data-intensive network environments. Features include hot-swappable drive trays and cooling fan modules, as well as a built-in RAID controller that can remotely monitor and manage the storage system through a web based GUI. This brings together protection, manageability and maintenance without interruption of services.
In staying with Enhance Technology’s direction to go green, the combination of Enhance’s UltraStor RS8 FS/RS16 FS and Emulex’s LightPulse HBAs is perfect for VMware ESX 3.5, the leading server virtualization solution. Leveraging VMware ESX 3.5 and Emulex’s Virtual HBA technology, Enhance Technology provides high storage capacity with the use of a single station, compared with multiple server stations, saving energy, space and the need to purchase unnecessary equipment to reach ultimate operator cost efficiency.
While Enhance Technology provides the high capacity storage, Emulex provides the link between storage and station. Emulex’s LP1150/1100x and LPe1150/1100x HBAs provide industry-leading SAN connectivity, offering full-duplex data throughput, simplified installation and configuration using a common driver model, as well as superior quality and reliability to ensure data availability.
The collaboration between Enhance Technology and Emulex delivers maximum efficiency and reliability to Enterprise and SMB storage users. The need for more storage is constant and Enterprise and SMBs demand scalability. Enhance Technology and Emulex are helping customers save energy, reduce waste, increase efficiency, while providing an effective high-performance storage that meets their ever-increasing storage needs.
“Emulex works closely with Enhance Technology to deliver interoperable products that offer industry-leading I/O connectivity and features for networked storage environments,” said Taufik Ma, vice president of product marketing, Emulex. “As server virtualization continues to drive storage area network (SAN) attach rates, Emulex LightPulse HBAs provide end users with a comprehensive feature set that ensures their environments are optimized for Fibre Channel SAN connectivity.”
“The partnership between Enhance Technology and Emulex enables us to accelerate the delivery of the latest Fibre 4G storage systems and solutions into the enterprise storage market”, says Steven Huang, General Manager, Enhance Technology, Inc. “Enhance Technology’s UltraStor RS Series Fibre Channel storage systems combine with Emulex’s LightPulse HBAs provide channel partners and VARs with affordable and robust Fibre Channel SAN storage solutions.”
