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.

Lowest Possible Cost per IOPS

The Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G SSD combines the latest SandForce 2500 Series processor with endurance-optimizing SandForce DuraClass technology with Enterprise Toggle Syncronous (eMLC) 10K PE flash NAND to deliver more that 3x the reliability and lifespan of standard MLC NAND. The SandForce Driven SSD also delivers up to 60K IOPS, and over 500MB/s data rates. By ensuring the highest levels of balanced read/write performance, the Mercury Enterprise Pro 6G SSD keeps the all important cost per IOPS ratio at the lowest possible level while still providing the critical reliability and performance metrics required by demanding applications.
