Verari Systems Announces Industry’s First High Capacity Blade-Based NAS and iSCSI Storage Appliance


“With the SB5165XL StorageServer NAS/iSCSI appliance, Verari’s Storage Group is demonstrating its commitment to continuous innovation and providing customers with an alternative to existing NAS solutions,” said Deni Connor, principal analyst, Storage Strategies NOW. “Verari is delivering industry-leading capacity and energy efficiency with the added benefit of investment protection by delivering new types of solutions for its BladeRack 2 X-Series platforms.”

This high capacity blade-based NAS and iSCSI storage appliance for the Verari Systems BladeRack® 2 XL platform is a powerful enabler for storage consolidation and as an effective alternative for enterprises to consolidate server virtualization resources providing a dramatic improvement in cost of ownership. The iSCSI capabilities of the SB5165XL StorageServer simplify the migration of data resident in server blades to networked storage while the StorageServer’s NAS-based file services are complementary to its IP network-based services. Applications such as Web 2.0, social networking and media achieving, that require file sharing are ideally suited for the SB5165XL, which can deliver significant ease of use, provide heterogeneous data sharing and enable organizations to automate and simplify their data management.

Purpose-built for the Verari Systems BladeRack 2 XL platform and FOREST containerized data center solution, the SB5165XL StorageServer appliance consists of an SB1165 StorageServer blade and up to two SB1056 disk blades, providing up to 24TBs of RAID 6 protected capacity. A single platform can house up to 24 StorageServers delivering 576 terabytes of unified storage in just two data center floor tiles while a FOREST container solution boasts up to 12 petabytes of capacity. These configurations make the SB5165XL StorageServer the densest and most energy efficient NAS/iSCSI storage appliance in the industry, with up to 50 percent savings in energy use and 77 percent better floor space utilization then traditional storage systems.
