Winchester System’s Surveillance Solutions to Employ Dot Hill R/Evolution Architecture

The vertical drive placement of Dot Hill’s 2722 and 2522 is cited by Winchester as being “highly conducive to better storage densities and improved vibration and shock characteristics.”

Storage solutions provider Dot Hill Systems Corp. has been tapped by Winchester Systems to provide its R/Evolution architecture for U.S. military and commercial surveillance customers.

Winchester Systems provides network-attached storage, direct-attached storage, tiered-storage, storage area network, and enterprise data storage solutions for commercial, industrial, healthcare, education, government, and military applications. These solutions include high performance iSCSI, SAS, SCSI, SATA, and Fibre Channel RAID disk arrays as well as disk backup devices and other high-performance commercial and military grade data storage for mid-range servers including Windows, Windows Clusters, Linux, Linux Clusters, and UNIX.

By building on the MIL-STD-810F/NEBS Level 3 certified/compliant Fibre Channel networked storage and SAS direct-attach compact, high-density, high-speed storage solutions from Dot Hill, Winchester Systems broadens its portfolio of ruggedized storage offerings.

Along with its line of rugged servers, Winchester Systems is marketing the rugged 4 Gb Fibre Channel 2722 and 2732, 8 Gb Fibre Channel 3720 and 3730, and 8 Gb Fibre Channel/1Gb iSCSI hybrid 3920 and 3930, and 2522 and 2532 SAS attached storage arrays to its military and commercial markets for a wide range of applications. Some of those applications include emergency response, video and broadcast, field exploration, data acquisition and other mobile data collection efforts.

“Dot Hill and Winchester Systems both share strong reputations for delivering dependable, high performance storage for rugged environments,” explains Winchester Systems CEO Joel Leider. “The vertical drive placement of the 2722 and 2522 is highly conducive to better storage densities and improved vibration and shock characteristics, and it was one of the reasons we selected Dot Hill as our go-to-market partner for this line.”

For Dot Hill’s part, the company’s vice president of marketing Andy Mills says Winchester Systems’ selection of the R/Evolution platform is “a strong validation of Dot Hill’s technology.”

“Customers who acquire one of our 4 Gb or 8 Gb Fibre Channel or SAS-based solutions from Winchester Systems,” Mills adds, “will benefit from the collective expertise of two major innovators in this field.”

Available in a compact, 2U form factor with support for 24 2.5-inch disk drives, Dot Hill’s Fibre Channel, Fibre Channel/iSCSI hybrid and SAS arrays feature intelligent, fully redundant controllers and a variety of drive options, including SAS, SATA, and SSD.

According to Dot Hill, its RAID arrays are based on the modular Dot Hill R/Evolution Architecture, which is designed to “rapidly evolve and support OEM technology and enable OEMs to achieve sustainable, competitive advantages in the volume storage market.”
