Launches High-Availability Network-Attached Storage Appliance|
SAN DIEGO, May 4, 2001 - Continuous Computing Corporation (CCPU) today launched its Hi-File high-availability NAS appliance for both enterprise and telco Central Office applications. Using CCPU's unique high-availability middleware technology, upSuite, Hi-File features transparent sub-second fail-over and transparent file system replication over TCP/IP. The result is an extremely reliable data storage device that requires a minimal amount of management.
When deployed in pairs, Hi-File provides unsurpassed availability and performance with a low total cost of ownership. Hi-File provides sub-second transparent fail-over to network clients by enabling IP address fail-over and file handle fail-over. Consequently, network clients continue to use the same IP address and the same file handles after a failure. Network clients are completely unaware that a failure has taken place.
"Hi-File is designed to be deployed in pairs. It's for applications where reliability and high-availability are critical, such as data centers or telephone Central Offices," explains CCPU Product Marketing Manager, Adam Stevenson. "This is a unique network appliance that offers complete fail-over and data replication and beyond five 9s of availability. It offers a better and faster solution than alternative products at a fraction of the total cost of ownership."
In addition to being NEBS compliant, Hi-File offers either -48 Volt DC or AC power supplies to meet strict telco standards. The current configuration of Hi-File consists of twelve hot-swappable 36 Gigabyte hard drives for a total of 432 Gigabytes. Other features include dual SCSI chains, three 10/100 Ethernet ports, optional dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and two expansion slots. Hi-File includes a RAID manager and supports NFS, CIFS and HTTP.
Hi-File is immediately available to both OEMs and end-users. Single systems have a list price of $19,995. Pairs of Hi-Files are available for $38,99 ...Continuous Computing profile
