Scalable Storage - XDAS
Visit the IT Professional Department

Press Release July 29, 2004

Scalable Storage

Aberdeen, an innovator of storage solutions, is proud to introduce the XDAS. As a highly scalable NAS storage solution, the XDAS provides a flexible framework for building and managing cost-effective SATA RAID storage systems. Even more impressive is that each XDAS takes advantage of the inherent benefits of disk-to-disk SATA backup storage and can be designed with either with SCSI cabling or with the more robust and increased scalability of fibre channel cabling.

Each scalable XDAS box will improve a cost/GB ratio by packing 3 terabytes into a standard 2U format and starting under $8500. By utilizing the, highly expandable storage capacity of the XDAS, it can be bundled with any Aberdeen Stirling server or AberNAS solution, thus delivering additional scalable storage space of up to 15TB per available channel with SCSI or 30TB with fibre. Among the features setting XDAS apart from the field are host and OS independence for full interoperability in heterogeneous environments, dual host failover clustering capability and an optional fibre channel interface allowing its placement to be literally miles away from the server.



Support for Server Failover Clustering
Scalable to 4.8TB with 400GB drives
