Verari Systems has announced the availability of its VS4000 family of storage systems featuring full front-end to back-end 4-gigabit Fibre Channel connectivity.
Based on new storage processors, the VS4000 series features 16 drive bays within the controller module, up to eight 4-gigabit Fibre Channel host ports and up to 4Gbytes of cache. Verari believes the increased performance and connectivity of the VS4000 series makes it the ideal solution for mid-range business and HPCC applications that require simultaneous, high performance bandwidth and I/O.
The company says that the VS4000’s compact chassis design saves space and reduces power and cooling requirements. Yet, with up to 8 terabytes of capacity in its 3U RoHS compliant chassis, it provides a small footprint with large scalability.
"Many organisations have adopted [4 gigabit San] solutions to take advantage of the performance they offer," says David Driggers, CEO of Verari.
"Not all businesses or HPCC applications require the utmost in performance that [San solutions] provide, yet they are still faced with the same challenges: a method to cost effectively deliver the performance and capacity demanded by ever increasing amounts of complex data. The VS4000 series systems offer our customers… an affordable mid-range option."
