Dot Hill introduces 3000 Series Arrays

Includes 8Gb fibre channel, 1Gb iSCSI and optional AssuredRemote data management software

By CBR Staff Writer

Dot Hill Systems has released 3000 Series disk arrays with support for 8Gb fibre channel storage area networks (SANs), dual interface 8Gb fibre channel and 1Gb iSCSI, and optional AssuredRemote data management software.

The company claims that the AssuredRemote software offers SMB IT managers a low maintenance approach to remote office data protection, recovery and migration. It helps users to combine both primary volumes and secondary storage with different performance and energy usage profiles in the same physical unit, with the addition of drive spin-down, mixed drive type support and dual protocol interfaces.

With the addition of drive spin-down, mixed drive type support and dual protocol interfaces, users can combine both high performance primary volumes and secondary storage with different performance and energy usage profiles in the same physical unit, the company said.

According to Dot Hill, AssuredRemote introduces embedded-in-the-array remote replication of snapshot volumes and offloads backup operations from application servers, asynchronously copying and synchronising data for up to 16 volumes simultaneously, directly between RAID arrays via the local SAN or wide area networks.

In addition, the 3000 Series supports up to 144 drives, including SATA, SSD and 6Gb SAS drives, and is expandable using either 3130 2U 12 3.5-inch drive or 3120 24 2.5-inch drive JBOD systems. It features eco-friendly enhancements such as drive-spin-down capability and 595-watt 80 PLUS-rated power supplies for reduced operating costs.

Andy Mills, vice president of marketing and business development at Dot Hill Systems, said: Small businesses want affordable, high performance storage solutions that are highly flexible yet easy to use. By adding remote data protection software, increased host connectivity options and significant energy-saving features, we believe we are delivering solutions that redefine the entry level storage space, while addressing today’s budget and operational expenditure needs.
