Raidtec drops $/MB of Ultra SCSI RAID

With a suggested list price of less than $0.20 per MB, Raidtec`s FlexArray UltraRAID is a 40MBps Ultra SCSI-based subsystem with up to 252GB. A 126GB version is priced at $22,000.

The FlexArray UltraRAID includes a PCI-based controller with 8MB to 32MB of cache, two Wide Ultra SCSI drive channels, and one or two FlexArray T enclosures. The controller supports multiple virtual concurrent arrays, allowing up to eight simultaneous logical arrays, each with selectable RAID levels--0, 1, 3, or 5. Raidtec`s RAIDman management software is bundled. The seven-slot enclosures support 3.5-inch 9GB or 18GB disk drives.
