Aberdeen Proudly Unveils The Petarack at VMworld.
A Full Petabyte of Managed SAN Storage in a Single Rack.


Aberdeen, a leading manufacturer of servers and storage, today unveils the Petarack, over a full petabyte of managed SAN storage in a single 42U rack. Ready for immediate delivery, the self-contained Petarack’s dual head units deliver high availability with no single point of failure.

Powered by Nexenta’s incredible Nexentastor ZFS file system implementation, the Petarack can be configured under a single Namespace/Volume that doesn’t have to stop at its own petabyte of included storage. The Petarack’s host capacity can be scaled to over 5 petabytes of continuous, uninterrupted storage in a single Namespace/Volume.

The included LCD-KVM is employed to navigate the Petarack’s intuitive web based GUI management for both configuring the array(s), and for the control of a wealth of enterprise level software features. These features include, but are not limited to, unlimited snapshots and clones, block level replication, file level replication and management of virtualized storage.

The Petarack is Cloud ready and Virtualization ready with features such as 128 bit addressing, huge storage file sizes, nearly unlimited clones and support for multiple, concurrent server virtualization vendors. Virtualization enables thin provisioning, while improving performance via I/O pooling, which actually improves performance as more storage is added. I/O performance can be further enhanced through the strategic deployment of optional, fast SSD drives in hybrid storage pools.

“Make no mistake about it, our Petarack is a revolutionary, innovate design delivering massive amounts of self-contained SAN storage at a price point that quite frankly, we strongly believe will make the entire community sit up and take notice,” said Aberdeen president and CEO, Moshe Ovadya, who went on to say, “The Petarack takes the petabyte plus level of storage, and instantly makes it available to, and affordable by, small and medium size organizations that never believed it would be within their reach.”

  •     Over a Full Petabyte of Storage in a Single Rack, Under a Single Namespace or Volume.
