LSI rolls out Engenio series storage system

To address the requirements of server and storage consolidation

By CBR Staff Writer

LSI has rolled out the new Engenio 4900 storage system. With 8Gb/s Fibre Channel (8GFC) and 1Gb/s iSCSI host interfaces, the new Engenio system’s multi-protocol connectivity and architecture is expected to address the requirements of server and storage consolidation.

According to LSI, the new Engenio system’s architecture delivers 1.6GB/s on sustained reads from disk, and over 50,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) disk reads. By utilising its 8GFC host interfaces, users can reduce the number of host bus adapters (HBAs) per server and the number of ports in the FC SAN infrastructure.

LSI said that the new Engenio system is designed to integrate into an existing 2GFC or 4GFC infrastructure. In addition, the ability to intermix FC and iSCSI host interfaces allows performance-sensitive applications to run on servers utilising iSCSI interfaces.

The company said that the new Engenio system includes redundant components, automated path failover and online administration and maintenance capabilities. Improved data protection is also provided with support for SEDs utilising LSI SafeStore Encryption Services.

Phil Bullinger, executive vice president and general manager of Engenio Storage Group at LSI, said: The Engenio 4900 provides customers with a highly adaptable, cost-effective solution that delivers the balanced performance necessary to tackle the mixed workload demands of virtualisation and consolidation environments.
