The new pricing further increases the incentive for all companies – particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) – to deploy iSCSI immediately. The new pricing includes the Ai-316-1016, the fastest 10Gb iSCSI appliance currently available. This 3U system delivers over 1,160MB/s sustained data transfer rates and can achieve over 86,000 IOPS. A fully-populated Ai-316-1016 with 16 x 750GB drives (12TB) is now only £12,995. Other products in the family include 1U and 2U appliances, with 3TB and 9TB capacities respectively. “We have seen a strong increase in the adoption of iSCSI in the SME sector,” said Alan Shepherd, Managing Director of aXstor. “The new cost structure for our 10Gb family, which approaches £1 per G Byte, will help accelerate the adoption of iSCSI in enterprises with more demanding requirements, providing outstanding performance as well as iSCSI’s compelling benefits of flexibility and ease of deployment at an affordable price.” The aXstor Ai iSCSI Array Servers can handle both file and block-based data, providing support for demanding applications like MS Exchange and SQL servers such as Oracle and MS SQL in addition to standard file-serving functionality.
