Clariion Advanced Storage Solutions, a Data General Corp company, has unveiled its VF2000 disk array, a new storage system aimed at the video industry. Tektronix Inc has been using a customized version of the product since late 1996, badging it as a PRS200 and bundling it for sale with its profile disk recorder (CI No 3,040). However, Clariion describes the new release as being ‘more generic and less proprietary’, enabling the company to target it at other customers. Developed from the company’s series 2000 disk arrays, the VF2000 uses specialized internal code designed specifically for the video industry. Clariion claims sequential read performance of more than 30Mbps and sequential write performance of 22Mbps. Thermal calibration of disks helps to maintain the uninterrupted high bandwidth performance needed in the video industry while also protecting data. Clariion says it is aiming to sell the new product to partners ‘who could conceivably be competing with Tektronix’ but maintains that there is ‘no trading conflict there’.
