25th April 2013
Expanded Product Line Provides Greater Flexibility to Customers Demanding High-Performance on a Tight Budget.
PROMISE Technology, Inc., a leader in developing high-performance storage solutions for the data center, surveillance, cloud, and rich media markets, today announced the availability of new single controller models of the Vess R2000 storage system. The new single controller models are ideal for users with tight budget constraints or for non-mission critical applications that do not require full redundancy, like data archiving and data backup. The new single controller models and the entire Vess R2000 Series are now VMware, Citrix and Hyper-V certified, enabling Vess customers to build flexible, reliable and scalable environments with the world’s leading virtualization platforms.
The new single controller Vess R2000 models replace the award-winning VessRAID 1000 Series and bring significant advantages to customers in performance, flexibly, and reliability. With both Fibre Channel and iSCSI host connectivity, the single controller Vess R2000 models deliver significantly faster throughput which on average is twice as fast as the 1000 Series. Customers have the option to upgrade to dual controllers as their needs evolve with the ‘Controller Upgrade Kit’ and with broad support for 4TB hard disk drives customers can scale each single storage node up to an impressive 448TB of raw capacity through cascading JBOD expansion units. In addition, with certification for the world’s leading virtualization platforms, the Vess R2000 can be used to effectively reduce IT expenses while improving efficiency and agility.
Introduced to provide small to medium businesses of all sizes a high-performance, cost effective storage solution, the Vess R2000 delivers cutting-edge technologies, including PerfectRebuild, an innovative feature which significantly reduces the time required for the array to transition from degraded to healthy status and Advanced Battery Flash Backup which delivers enhanced reliability in the protection of valuable business data. Additionally, for customers who plan to upgrade to the Vess R2000 Series, they can directly move the hard disk drive from their VessRAID 1000 to the Vess R2000 making data migration an extremely convenient process.
“The Vess Series has proven to be one the most reliable products on the market with a proven record of outstanding performance and innovation,” said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. “Expanding the Vess R2000 Series with new single controller models continues our commitment to meeting the demands of our diverse SMB customer base for high-performance storage solutions that are low cost and provide the flexibility to grow with their business and technology needs. With certification for VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V, the Vess R2000 Series is ideal for customers looking for a secure storage solution that enhances IT and operating efficiency.”
