Intel Chooses LSI High-Availability Direct-Attached Storage Solutions

Sep 14, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- LSI Corp. announced that its high-availability direct-attached storage (HA-DAS) solutions have been selected by Intel to enhance its storage portfolio.

According to a release, LSI HA-DAS solutions are designed to provide small to medium-sized businesses (SMB) and remote, departmental and branch offices with increased application availability and uptime without the complexity and costs of traditional high-availability storage solutions.

"Data growth and consumption have fueled the need for high-availability server systems where shared storage and uptime are especially critical," said David Brown, director of marketing, Intel Enterprise Platforms and Services Division. "Intel RAID HA-DAS solutions powered by LSI technology will provide those benefits found in traditional high-availability systems, while at the same time being easier to manage and more cost-effective." LSI said highly available computing systems are designed to ensure that applications and data are continuously available even in the case of component failure. Traditional high-availability (HA) solutions combine servers into clusters and share storage across a storage area network (SAN) to ensure continuous application availability and eliminate single points of failure. LSI pioneering HA-DAS solutions lower the cost and complexity of HA solutions by providing: -Fully redundant, shared-node storage -Application failover to guarantee uptime and availability -Simple, easy-to-manage storage without complex storage networking hardware "LSI HA-DAS solutions are an exciting new option for system architects and IT managers that deliver shared storage application failover with the cost-effectiveness of DAS," said Kelly Bryant, vice president of marketing, RAID Storage Division, LSI. "LSI is excited to collaborate with Intel as they have taken a leading position in offering these new solutions to the marketplace." LSI Corp. designs semiconductors and software that accelerate storage and networking in datacenters, mobile networks and client computing.
