On Wed., Aug. 22nd, Dot Hill entered the midrange market when it announced to the world its release of the AssuredSAN™ 4000 and the AssuredSAN™ Pro 5000. The 4000 builds off the rock solid AssuredSAN™ foundation and is wicked fast, with 100,000 read IOPs. It reads at 5200 MBps and writes at 3000 MBps. It has advanced host interface options and is easy to set up and use with the RAIDar 2.0 user interface.
The Pro 5000 continues to build upward with seriously smart technology and a disruptively simple user interface. This product uses Dot Hill’s patent-pending RealStor™ software to deliver autonomic, real-time tiering of SSD and HDD storage. With the Pro 5000 IT managers can also take advantage of thin provisioning, replication and an intuitive user interface.
