DataDirect Networks – S2A6620 High Performance Modular Storage Appliance


Applications, such as internet services, online transaction processing (OLTP), email, video-on-demand, video surveillance, and on-line video games, are extremely demanding on storage performance, capacity, reliability and scalability due to their nature. Growing businesses constantly face the challenge of delivering IOPS performance to database driven applications and throughput performance to the growing stores of unstructured content. With traditional storage technologies, these applications conflict for storage resources and force IT managers to compartmentalize applications to multiple dedicated storage systems which increases complexity, capital expense and cost of ownership. For over ten years, DataDirect Networks has been providing storage solutions for high performance and high capacity applications. The S2A6620 leverages innovative capabilities from the award winning performance and reliability of the industry-leading S2A product family. This modular, high-density appliance delivers the highest quality data services and eliminates the need for multiple systems; minimizing floor space, power consumption, and storage management complexity.
