Xiotech Introduces New Storage Line that Virtually Eliminates Service and Failures

Xiotech Corporation today announced a new line of storage systems featuring the company's patented Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) technology acquired from Seagate Technology last November. By using ISEs as the fundamental element of storage instead of disk drives, the Emprise storage systems are able to virtually eliminate the need for service, scale from one terabyte to one petabyte and dramatically boost performance, validated by SPC tests. The systems include a five year hardware warranty and there is no price premium for the new technology.

"It's time for a new foundation for storage," said Xiotech Chief Technology Officer Steve Sicola, who led a million-man-hour effort to bring the ISE technology to market. "Exponential growth in data storage capacity continues, but reliability, performance and manageability haven't kept pace. We have fundamentally rethought storage from the ground up, and with the ISE have developed break-through technology, which is tested, proven and ready to go."

Xiotech's new storage systems include two models: the Emprise 7000 storage area network (SAN) system and the Emprise 5000 direct- and switch-attached storage system. The Emprise 7000 system supports up to 64 ISEs and is managed by dual controllers. It includes all of the storage capabilities that are currently available on Xiotech's Magnitude 3D® 4000 line, including the Web Services-based ICON Manager interface, optimal storage virtualization, distributed cluster architecture, intelligent provisioning and a suite of data replication solutions
