X-IO Technologies has extended its series of storage solutions with the general availability of the Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) 740 hybrid storage system and the ISE 240 performance storage system.
The addition of the ISE 740 hybrid storage system to its 700 Series means that X-IO now offers a family of Tier 0 and Tier 1 ultra-high performance storage arrays providing up to 28.8 TB of usable capacity and up to 300,000 IOPS. To deliver this performance the ISE 740’s 3U package uses a combination of enterprise-grade flash drives and mission critical, high-performance HDDs.
The ISE 700 series, including the new ISE 740, are all managed by X-IO’s Continuous Adaptive Data Placement (CADP) engine. The ISE 240 performance system, extends X-IO’s 200 Series of Tier 1 and 2 all-HDD storage array to 38.4 TB of usable capacity and up to 13,500 IOPS. The 200 Series is ideal for server and desktop virtualization, cloud computing, and other applications with multi-tenant workloads.
Each ISE storage system is a completely self-contained storage building block designed to accelerate server and desktop virtualization solutions, as well as transactional, reporting, and business intelligence applications by a factor of three or more. ISE storage systems are designed to scale so that full storage performance is maintained no matter how many ISE systems are added to increase capacity.
Nick Ellermann, CTO of BroadAspect, has recently deployed the ISE 700 and ISE 200 Series systems says, “We were looking for a solution that would provide us with usable features for our VMware ecosystem, ultimately contributing positively to how we do business. X-IO’s unique ‘Zero Touch’ approach is just one of these features saving us time and money. Not to mention the five-year warranty, which has significantly reduced our storage costs. This means that we can continue to grow and service our growing customer base, safe in the knowledge that we are fully supported by a high performance storage solution.”
