New OWC Jupiter mini-SAS Redefines Shared SAN Storage by Harnessing the Simplicity and Performance of mini-SAS Direct Attached Storage

Monday, January 9th, 2012 | Author:

Other World Computing announced today its new OWC Jupiter mini-SAS scalable storage solution for small businesses and enterprises utilizing mission critical and creative applications. Built upon the proven mini-SAS interface for speeds up to 24Gb/s using just a single cable connection, the Jupiter family of racks, towers, and hubs combine the highest levels of data sharing performance with the simplicity of direct attached storage (DAS) at up to 5x lower cost of fibre channel infrastructures. The OWC Jupiter mini-SAS will be available by the end of March in a variety of configurations with 8TB Enterprise solution pricing starting at $3,995.00. During the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which begins tomorrow in Las Vegas, Nevada, OWC will demonstrate the high performance of the Jupiter mini-SAS in its booth #5231 in the LVCC North Hall.

Centralized Storage = Higher Productivity

Jupiter mini-SAS is a centralized storage solution, which means data is stored in a single location and can be accessed by multiple workstations simultaneously. Sharing content streamlines workflows, eliminates bottlenecks, and the need to duplicate files. By eliminating the need to copy data to multiple users on DAS solutions or searching for files in multiple locations, Jupiter mini-SAS can dramatically increase productivity. Additionally, Jupiter mini-SAS can be configured to provide zoned/allocated drive access privileges so specific workstations and/or servers have exclusive access to specific drives or sets of drives.

Other World Computing Named To Crain’s Chicago Business “Fast Fifty” List Of Fastest Growing Companies In The Chicago Area

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011 | Author:

Other World Computing has been named for a second time to the Crain’s Chicago Business 2011 “Fast 50” list of the fastest growing companies in the Chicago area, posting a 99.2 percent revenue growth rate over the past five years. OWC appeared on the 2009 Crain’s Fast Fifty list, and has also been recognized annually since 2008 on Crain’s list of Chicago’s Largest Privately Held Companies.

Crain’s began the qualification process in January by searching lists of public and private companies. To be eligible for consideration, companies had to be headquartered in the six-county Chicago metropolitan area (Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will), posted both revenue growth and a minimum of least $20 million revenue for 2010, and had no more than one year of declining revenue in the 2005-2010 timeframe. Firms meeting those criteria, along with earning the highest five-year revenue growth percentages, became the “Fast 50”. In 2010, OWC revenue reached $70.9 million, up 99.2% since 2005.

“OWC is thrilled to be part of the 2011 Crain’s Fast Fifty list this year — it is an honor to be included among the most successful firms in the Chicago area,” said Larry O’Connor, founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “But the real reward is knowing that our healthy growth enables us to better serve our customers on a day to day basis, as we work to constantly expand the range of products and services we provide.”
