Intel Announces SSR212MA Storage System
Intel announced a new storage platform designed to make it easier and more affordable for small- and medium-sized businesses to deploy storage solutions that help ensure prompt disaster recovery and extend backup capabilities.
The Intel Storage System SSR212MA is a hardware and software solution enabling small- and medium-sized businesses to build a full-featured Storage Area Network (SAN) based on IP networking standards as a low-cost, complement or alternative to fibre channel-based solutions. Using a single Intel Xeon processor, the platform supports up to 12 Serial ATA hard drives and iSCSI connectivity, which allows SANs to be built on existing network IP infrastructure.
The platform comes standard with a suite of software tools to manage geographically diverse storage resources and accommodate rapidly expanding storage growth. From a central console, a customer can configure and manage the SAN, configure and provision volumes quickly without system downtime, make incremental copies of data volumes, and authenticate users for improved data security.
Optional features allow customers to extend the capacity and performance of the Intel Storage System SSR212MA and provide business continuity by adding an additional layer of protection from natural disasters and outages affecting an entire site.
The Intel Storage System SSR212MA based on cost-effective IP networking standards is available today from participating Intel Channel members.
