Dot Hill Showcases Storage Solutions at UK Storage Expo

10/14/2003 - Dot Hill's (NASDAQ:HILL) SANnet® II storage solutions will be featured at the UK Storage Expo 2003, October 15-16, at National Hall, Olympia, London. The SANnet II Fibre Channel storage system will be demonstrated in a configuration with Qlogic's SANbox2-64 fabric switch. The storage area network (SAN) demonstration will be ongoing throughout the Expo at Dot Hill's stand 118.

The demonstration will span both the Dot Hill and Qlogic stands and the equipment will be connected between the booths via Fibre Channel simulating a real-world SAN. Four servers will each be running a different operating system to present a heterogeneous environment. Dot Hill's storage software suite, SANpath® and SANscape®, will be used in this environment. Dot Hill's Axis Storage ManagerTM will also be attached to demonstrate replication and synchronous mirroring between the two stands.

The SANnet II family of storage systems provides industry-leading 99.9998+ percent uptime in a compact, rugged enclosure. SANnet II brings enterprise class features into the workgroup and virtually eliminates downtime with no single points of failure. The common modular architecture of the SANnet II product family provides seamless scalability for future growth.

All SANnet II products feature hot-swappable, field-replaceable components including drives, controllers, power supplies, fans and event monitoring units. This product line meets MIL-STD-810F standards for the U.S. Department of Defense and is certified to the telecommunications industry NEBS Level 3 standard.

The SANbox2-64 is a new class of Edge switch that makes deploying and scaling a SAN much easier and more cost-effective. Its dense, bladed architecture allows SAN architects to easily scale from 16 ports to 64 ports in just 4U (7 inches high) of rack space. In addition, the SANbox2-64 modular fabric switch offers redundancy and hot-swap capabilities typically found only in much more expensive Director switches.

The Axis Storage Manager family provides storage routing, extensive virtualization, flexible networking, and centralized management as standard features and advanced options including disaster recovery and remote replication.
