SANnet II NAS Solution Launched by Dot Hill

2/12/2003 - Dot Hill (AMEX:HIL) introduced its new SANnet® II NAS (network attached storage) solutions. SANnet II NAS is a complete storage networking solution consisting of hardware, software, training, support and service for Windows, Linux and Unix platforms. It shares a common modular architecture and unified management software with all the other products in the SANnet II family.

The SANnet II NAS features dual gigabit Ethernet, AC or DC power options and connections to support high-speed local area network environments. The embedded Web-based browser interface provides simple plug and play set up and operations. SANnet II NAS comes bundled with SANscape®, Dot Hill’s easy-to-use storage management software. SANscape provides comprehensive and remote storage management from any web-enabled console and offers a unified management system across NAS, DAS and SAN.

This powerful entry level NAS solution supports file sharing via NFSv2/3 and CIFS and includes heterogeneous Access Control List (ACL) support as well as NDMP 3.0 for serverless backup. The SANnet II NAS supports clients running Solaris, Windows, Linux, HP-UX and AIX. Its rugged reliability is tested and certified to the telco industry’s NEBS Level 3 standard and the U.S. Department of Defense MIL-STD-810F.

With 12 disk drive bays in a compact 2U (3.5 inches high) enclosure, SANnet II NAS is well suited to environments where space is at a premium. It can be scaled up to 5.25TB by adding one or more expansion units and delivers heterogeneous file sharing for servers and workstations. Professional training, support and service delivered jointly with Dot Hill’s reseller partners complete the solution. Volume shipments of SANnet II NAS will begin in April.

“The introduction of the SANnet II NAS product completes our trio of powerful storage solutions and provides our channel partners with a solution for just about any environment or requirement,” said Dana Kammersgard, Dot Hill CTO and co-founder. “We expect that the SANnet family’s modular architecture and the unified management system afforded by SANscape will allow our partners to quickly ramp sales of the entire product line.
