Winchester Ultra320 SCSI FlashDisk RAID Arrays Deliver Faster Access

11/29/2004 - Winchester Systems, Inc., a leading data storage solutions company, announced that their current FlashDisk OpenRAID products now incorporate Ultra320 SCSI technology. This technology doubles the data transfer rates of current products from 160 MBs per second to 320 MBs per second. At 320 MBs per second, transfer rates are now faster than 2-gigabit Fibre Channel that delivers 200 MBs per second.

"FlashDisk's high-performance and high capacity are well-suited to database, OLTP, manufacturing, real-time video, graphic image and other disk intensive tasks and customers can now benefit from faster transfer rates and increased data protection," stated Jan Sutton, Product Marketing Manager. "FlashDisk OpenRAID products are also backward compatible to protect previous SCSI storage investments."

FlashDisk SCSI products are compatible with any server or operating system, with no requirement for host software drivers. With hot-swappable components, including controllers, disk drives, power supplies, fans, and AC power inlets, FlashDisk offers a robust design to meet enterprise class data storage requirements.

Included with every data storage solution is the FlashConsole appliance, providing complete centralized management using any browser-based workstation on the LAN. FlashAlert, a 24-hour "call-home" remote monitoring and alert service is also included for one year. Together, FlashConsole and FlashAlert provide a common storage management facility for the complete line of data storage solutions from Winchester Systems.

FlashDisk products with U320 SCSI are available for shipment now.
