Dot Hill Targets High-Bandwidth Storage Applications with RIO Xtreme

10/15/2004 - Dot Hill (Nasdaq: HILL) announced that it has released its RIO Xtreme(TM) storage solutions, which are optimized for very high sequential bandwidth applications such as streaming audio/video, data acquisition and high performance computing. Built with enterprise-class fault tolerance, RIO Xtreme storage solutions deliver high availability with redundant, hot-swappable components.

The RIO Xtreme storage solution comprises a very high-performance 1U RAID control head and a 2GB Fibre Channel (FC) 2U JBOD enclosure that expands to 28TB by adding additional 2U enclosures and drives. Performance has been tested at over 1600 megabytes per second (MB/sec) from cache. In real-life applications from disk, RIO Xtreme's performance exceeds 790 MB/sec of sustained throughput.

Dot Hill's RIO Xtreme storage solutions can connect to four or eight hosts with the built-in Switchless SAN(TM) technology. RIO Xtreme has been tested and proven interoperable with major hardware and software editing platforms. The easy-to-use, web-based graphical user interface provides management and monitoring.

"RIO Xtreme is the first product that combines Dot Hill storage architecture with controller technology from the Chaparral acquisition that took place in February 2004," said Omar Barraza, Director of Marketing for Dot Hill.
