The power of storage solutions just doubled.
Ciprico, the leader in ultra high-performance storage technology, has launched the first 2 GB/second storage solution in the UK, FibreSTORE 2210. It is exclusively available in the UK through enterprise storage distributor Ideal Hardware.

FibreSTORE 2210 delivers unprecedented performance within its new 2 GB/sec architecture. It is the only array providing 400 MB/sec per enclosure, effectively doubling the data delivery speed common in today’s standard disk arrays.

Gerry Holman, Ciprico Sales Manager, explains:

“Ciprico’s expertise is in ultra high-performance demanded by organisations which need to move large data files quickly, such as in broadcast, film, government or military markets. In fact, our storage solutions were used on digitally-enhanced movies such as Gladiator, The Matrix or A Bug’s Life.

“As data requirements of most large organisations are now exploding, Ciprico is making our expertise with fibre channel in high-bandwidth, multi-streaming environments available to the wider commercial world. FibreSTORE 2210 will give any organisation with tough data requirements a new level of bandwidth and guaranteed performance.”

FibreSTORE 2210 combines Ciprico’s best-of-breed multi-streaming RAID technology and storage management tools into one storage solution for a large range of applications. Storage management is easily handled through standard Internet protocols through an integrated Ethernet port.

Ian Lockhart, Business Manager, Enterprise Solutions Group at Ideal Hardware, adds:

“The demand for data performance is booming, bringing in turn a demand for high-bandwidth, fibre-channel storage solutions offering instant access to large files. Ciprico’s new high-end product is a great addition to our enterprise storage portfolio, and will benefit any reseller planning to implement a high-performance storage solution.”

Technical summary of FibreSTORE 2210:

· 2 GB solution with performance up to 200 MB/sec per channel.

· 730 GB per array; up to 7.3 TB per one full rack of arrays.

· Storage management via integrated Ethernet (SNMP, SMTP and HTTP).
