X-IO Delivers Big Solution for Big Data, Offering 1 Petabyte of Capacity and 1 Million IOPS
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, Jan 15, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Storage industry innovator X-IO Technologies today announced ISE
Station XL, the newest member of its ISE Station X family of data
storage solutions. Available now, the second generation ISE Station
XL is a pre-configured storage solution that offers 1 petabyte (1024
terabytes) of capacity and delivers over 1 million input/output
operations per second (IOPS) in a dense, energy-efficient package.
ISE Station XL accelerates enterprise applications and provides
unmatched price/performance -- all with the lowest total cost of
ownership (TCO) in the industry.
Designed for datacenter operators and cloud-based service providers
who need both high performance and high capacity, ISE Station XL
provides built-in support for major virtualization engines from
Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft, removing SAN controller bottlenecks
and complexity from large-scale virtualization architectures. ISE
Station XL consumes only 34.56 square feet (3.21 square meters) of
floor space and 28 kilowatts of energy, while producing a heat load
of only 95,536 BTUs and offering the lowest power and cooling
requirements in the industry.
Fully compatible with today's leading operating systems and
hypervisors, the innovative design of the ISE Station XL makes it
easily expandable, beyond 1 petabyte, when needed. Housed in just
four 44U racks, the ISE Station XL addresses the needs of enterprise
customers with its superior ease of management, low support costs and
X-IO's unique five-year hardware warranty.
X-IO CTO Steve Sicola called the release of the ISE Station XL the
next logical step in the evolution of X-IO large-scale storage
offerings. Sicola stated, "Since storage is the single most
significant component of the cost of deployment in large-scale
datacenter environments and cloud services, we are tuning the ISE
Station product line to focus on reducing that cost-of-deployment
significantly -- at minimum, by a third -- while guaranteeing
capacity and performance-at-scale."
