UltraStor RS8 IP-4 & RS16 IP-4 Series Increase Efficiency, Flexibility, Performance, & Scalability
Santa Fe Springs, CA. January 29, 2009 – Enhance Technology, the pioneer in design and implementation of hybrid input/output technology in the storage systems is proud to announce that its UltraStor RS8 IP and RS16 IP Series iSCSI storage arrays have passed VMware’s Certification Program for VMware ESX Server 3.5. The combination of VMware’s storage virtualization and Enhance Technology’s Quad GbE iSCSI Enterprise RAID protected Storage systems allow Enhance users to make the best use of their existing storage to improve resource utilization. VMware allows IT customers various benefits such as less energy consumption, simplify management, and flexible & scalable network storage environment for enterprise & SMB.
As the leader in server virtualization, VMware provides users for saving overall cost by its green nature with fewer servers required, reducing downtime and energy usage, increase flexibility and the efficiency of the storage subsystems. The efficient setup of using VMware ESX server along with the Enhance Tech UltraStor RS16 Storage Array will directly contribute to savings on IT operating cost. VMware ESX 3.5 enables multiple virtual machines to run simultaneously on a single server, and it can isolates each virtual machine from its host and other virtual machines leaving them unaffected when an application in a virtual machine crashes. VMware supports a variety of operating systems for use on most of the applications and its VMotion feature also provide live migration of virtual machines in the case of unexpected computer failure event providing a robust server and network environment.
Enhance Technology’s UltraStor RS8 IP-4 and RS16 IP-4 iSCSI SAN Arrays feature industry-leading performance on Intel IOP platform with quad channel GbE iSCSI ports and throughput of up to 400MB/sec. The UltraStor RS8 IP-4 and RS16 IP-4 are powered by Intel Xscale IOP342 processor supporting both the high-performance SAS and high-capacity SATA drives. With the capability of expanding to four (4x) more UltraStor RS16 JS SAS JBOD Arrays through a built-in SAS JBOD expansion port, the UltraStor RS8 IP-4/RS16 IP-4 storage solutions can be expanded to a total capacity of 120TB using the latest 1.5TB Seagate Barracuda HDDs. With the implementation on green technologies, such as, auto disk spin-down and 80 plus dual-redundant power supply, Enhance Technology strives to achieve high power efficiency while minimizing total operating costs. With the VMware certification, Enhance customers will be able to take advantage of all the excellent features provided by the ESX servers in the virtualized computing environment with a peace of mind.
