9/16/2004 - Accordance Systems announced that their new ARAID 2000 is shipping. ARAID 2000 is an easily installable Serial ATA (SATA) RAID storage solution for businesses and individuals concerned with data security and availability. Compatible with popular operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc), the ARAID 2000 automatically mirrors data onto a second drive ensuring that data is protected in case one drive dies or gets corrupted. Because the RAID intelligence is built into the ARAID 2000 design, no additional controller boards or drivers are required to use the device.
Not only can users enjoy the high performance and reliability of SATA, they are protecting data at a reduced cost compared to other RAID strategies. Each unit supports drive hot-swapping, LCD status display, independent locking drive trays, audible warning alarms, and forced air cooling. The RAID architecture utilizes Accordance ASIC technology that performs RAID services in hardware with less than 3% CPU overhead.
To ensure maximum security, a drive can be easily removed from the ARAID 2000 unit and stored in a secure location for backup with no service or data interruption. “Users and IT managers no longer have to worry about someone walking off with important data, or a hard drive crashing, destroying irreplaceable data,” said Steve Johnson, President of Accordance Systems. “The ARAID 2000 is the perfect data availability solution for small to medium size businesses and office networks with a need for business continuity. It’s a simple, versatile data storage workhorse.”
For larger business and enterprise users, the ARAID 2000 can be easily managed via SNMP protocol communicating to popular network management systems like Tivoli and HP OpenView, as well as Accordance’s recently announced OpManager. Accordance Systems is the first company to support SNMP software for this class of device in its line of RAID products.
List price for the ARAID 1500 (PATA version) and ARAID 2000 is $370/each. These products and the rest of Accordance product family of IDE, SCSI, NAS and Micro-Servers RAID storage products can be purchased online at the Accordance website at: www.accordancesystems.com.
