Symbios goes scalable
Capitalizing on one of the main trends in the storage industry--scalability--Symbios Logic last month introduced a new line of MetaStor arrays that scale from 8GB to terabytes. The modular architecture is centered on two building blocks: the CM1000 command module and theDM1000 drive module. The CM1000 comes with one or two controllers and Ultra SCSI or Fibre Channel interfaces. The dual-active controller configuration has dual I/O paths and automatic fail-over capability.
The DM1000 enclosure houses fans, power supplies, 10 drives (4GB or 9GB), and an environmental status module. Each CM1000 supports up to five DM1000 drive modules.
MetaStor arrays are available as server-attached or network-attached configurations. Contact Symbios Logic at (800) 856-3093, www.symbios.com.
