Dot Hill Launches 12Gb SAS Arrays

Dot Hill Systems Corp. announced its AssuredSAN 4004 storage models. This model bases on the company's ninth-generation RAID architecture.

These products offer data security, fast throughput and substantial business benefits for markets that demand high-bandwidth performance, such as cloud service providers, media and entertainment, oil & gas, telecommunications, big data analytics and digital image archiving.

Host interface options include 12Gb SAS, 16Gb FC, 1GbE and 10GbE iSCSI and the only hybrid 16Gb Gen 5 FC/10Gb iSCSI converged interface.

With an installed base exceeding 600,000 systems, Dot Hill has demonstrated 99.9% availability with real-world field data, helping to assure organizations of round-the-clock access to data. The AssuredSAN 4004 offers partners an advantage as the industry transitions to 16Gb FC and 12Gb SAS interfaces. Multiple OEM customers are either already shipping or are in late stage evaluations.

Performance, Data Availability and Compatibility


All AssuredSAN 4004 solutions are built on the company's ninth-generation RAID stack, which delivers up to 100,000 IO/s from disk, sustained sequential read performance of up to 6,400MB/s and writes of up to 5,300MB/s.

The RAID Companion Processor (RCP) allows 4004 solutions to deliver performance gains at aggressive price points.

Support for Complement of Data Management Software and SSDs


AssuredSAN 4004 arrays support the full complement of Dot Hill's data management services including the company's RAIDar management interface, and DR software comprised of AssuredSnap for point-in-time snapshots, AssuredCopy for creating volume copies and AssuredRemote for array-based remote replication. Support for storage software platforms such as vSphere, Hyper-V, Xenserver and Veeam Backup & Replication is included. Consistent with previous AssuredSAN products, flash-based SSD drives are supported across the Dot Hill product line.
