SGi this week announced the release of its InfiniteStorage 5000 RAID storage system. With an advanced feature-set and flexible configuration options, SGI hopes to attract mid-market customers. It's also SGI's first storage system to employ 6Gbps SAS technology, the company said.
"As data volumes in the enterprise continue to grow, increased performance, reduced power consumption and system flexibility are of primary concern to customers," said Rick Chapek, SGI senior vice president of hardware engineering. "By utilizing 6 Gb/s SAS technology, SGI InfiniteStorage 5000 brings performance, reliability and a strong feature set normally seen in high-end Fibre Channel systems to an aggressive entry-level price point."
On the performance front, SGI's swank new device pushes up to 4,000MB/s on sustained reads from disk, which is 4x faster than the company's previous generation product. It also boasts 40,000 IOPS random disk reads, or twice as much as before.
The InfiniteStorage 5000 is available now with pricing provided upon request.
