Fibrenetix launches Fibre Channel RAID/JBOD solution providing up to 16 Terabytes of storage

Fibrenetix, the recognised European market leader in high-performance, cost-effective IDE RAID solutions, has announced the introduction of the Atlantis AT-1400 Fibre Channel series of products to meet high availability, capacity, performance and scalability storage requirements.

Jes Nagel, Managing Director of Fibrenetix, said, “Despite offering a staggering capacity of up to three Terabytes of storage capacity per enclosure in our IDE range of RAID products, Fibrenetix has encountered demand from a number of blue-chip and enterprise customers who require an
even greater level of availability, performance and scalability. In response to this demand, we have introduced a number of high-end features to our product range which can now provide up to sixteen Terabytes of storage capacity.”

The AT-1400 series offers Fibre Channel RAID or JBOD (Just a Bunch of Drives) storage solutions, making it an ideal component for use in any SAN-based or Server-attached mass storage environment. Optional Dual Active/Active RAID controllers provide the highest levels of availability
and ensure minimum downtime. For Clustering or SAN applications, the AT-1400 features Multiple host and Host LUN support.

The AT-1400 JBOD is based around a superior quality, fault-tolerant, Fibre Channel disk enclosure featuring 14x drive caddies. Combined with the 1u controller box, featuring single or dual loop Fibre Channel, the AT-1400 is a high-end, mass storage device. The product’s scalable design enables up to
seven AT-1400 JBOD’s, supporting up to 112x Hot Swap drives, to be cascaded in a single-loop offering a massive 16 Terabytes of high availability storage (using 146GB drives).

To maximise reliability and system up-time, all critical components are hot swappable, including PSUs, fans and RAID controllers. Other components, including the bypass module and the SES environment module are cool-swappable, ensuring high availability and ease of maintenance.

Certified by most Fibre Channel Switch and HBA manufacturers, the AT-1400 supports RAID levels 0, 0+1, 3 and 5. Its cableless design offers superior reliability and performance and a versatile monitoring system, alerts administrators to any system irregularities.

“Fibrenetix plans to announce further Enterprise products during Q4-2002.” Jes Nagel added. “The Enterprise market is an increasingly important growth area for Fibrenetix. With an expected growth rate of 30% this year and 40% next year, the company expects to become one of the key players in this
