Dot Hill's intros first 10Gbit/E iSCSI box

Not over the hill then

HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

Dot Hill has introduced its first 10Gbit/E iSCSI storage array, pitching the box'of'disks at rich media apps.

The rackmount AssuredSAN 3420 and 3430 have a 10Gbit/E interface for iSCSI block access, making them well suited, Dot Hill says, for streaming video applications, rich media post-production, servers with lots of virtual machines running on them, and even high-performance computing applications. Dot Hill also suggests users should get these systems because a 10Gbit/E gateway provides a lot of headroom for expansion.

The 3420C has 2.5-inch disk drives while the 3430C has bigger 3.5-inch ones. Both arrays can be populated with solid state drives, and SAS and SATA disk drives. The formats can be mixed, by the way, and up to seven JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) expansion units are supported, to a maximum of 144 drives. There is a dual RAID controller and redundant, hot-swappable components.

The 3420 can have up to 24 drives and up to 12TB capacity. The 3430, with a slightly deeper enclosure, can have up to 12 drives and 24TB capacity.

This AssuredSAN 3400 series product also has optional snapshot and copy software, providing up to 1,000 snapshots and 512 volume copies. They also have a super capacitor backup scheme instead of battery backup. The 3420S and 3430S include the snapshot and copy features.

The 3400 products will be available next month through Dot Hill's channel partners. List prices start at $18,970 for a Dot Hill-branded 2U storage system with dual controllers. OEM versions are also available. Disk drives are priced separately. ®
