ESG Lab Report Validates Seriously Smart Efficiency Of AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series With Real-time Tiering

LONGMONT, Colo., Oct. 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq:HILL), a leading provider of SAN storage solutions, today announced Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) has recently issued a Lab Validation Report validating the wicked fast performance, rock solid reliability, and disruptively simple management interface of the new Dot Hill AssuredSAN™ Pro 5000 Series and AssuredSAN 4000 Series storage arrays, both now available to customers.

The ESG Lab Validation Report documents the results of expert, independent, hands-on testing of the Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series and AssuredSAN 4000 storage solutions. Key findings of the report are summarized below:

AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series RealStor TM Software—As Autonomic as Breathing

The report validates that AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series' RealStor software with real-time tiering significantly reduces the cost and complexity of deploying and managing storage in midmarket organizations. "Our testing of Dot Hill's RealStor software showed significant improvements in response time for workloads mirroring typical business environments, such as email, database queries, and online ordering. RealStor software quickly adapted to rapidly changing workloads," said Brian Garret vice president, ESG Lab. "We believe customers will welcome the AssuredSAN Pro 5000's simply elegant approach to storage management that saves time and money, delivers impressive performance, and eliminates the hassle of dealing with RAID."

Like the autonomic nature of breathing, IT managers don't have to think about benefits of the RealStor software, concluded ESG Lab; capacity, performance and efficiency are automatically optimized in real-time. ESG Lab noted that after the system automatically configures storage into one or more pools, RealStor kicks in and works without user intervention to deliver seriously smart capabilities including: Automated Tiered Storage, Thin Provisioning and Quick RAID Rebuild.

Disruptively Simple Management Interface Configured in Five Minutes

The report validates that Dot Hill's new and disruptively simple management interface, found in both the AssuredSAN 4000 Series and the AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series, can be used to dramatically reduce the time, effort, and potential for error inherent in managing complex storage environments. A wizard-driven configuration of a system from scratch was completed in only five minutes. Complex device creation and mapping was simplified with table-driven wizards. ESG Lab noted that it was "pleasantly surprised" with the integrated performance monitoring and trending capabilities supported by the management interface at no additional cost.
