Independent Analysis Shows Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series With Real-Time Tiering Tackles Storage Demands For Virtualized Workloads And Exchange Servers

Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series is Optimized for Exchange Storage

In the Evaluator Group Technology Insight Paper, " Exchange Storage – Meeting Requirements with Dot Hill," Randy Kerns, senior strategist, noted that Microsoft has made significant changes with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 to reduce I/O overhead. Even with the changes to reduce I/O overhead, Exchange is sensitive to disk latencies for mailbox access, which necessitates the selection of storage systems that can minimize response times, Kerns said.

"Dot Hill offers storage systems with the advanced capabilities needed to address evolving Microsoft Exchange environments. By automating tasks for managing storage and adapting to changing workloads, Dot Hill storage can simplify the administrative effort to meet the storage needs for Exchange," said Kerns. "The ability to adapt to changing workloads to meet increasing numbers of email users and the varying needs of server virtualization is one of the most important characteristics of Dot Hill AssuredSAN systems. The automation designed into the AssuredSAN system to measure data usage and move data to the most responsive location in real‐time removes the detailed monitoring and management usually required to optimize the storage environment."

"With years of hands-on experience, the analysts at Evaluator Group are extremely knowledgeable about systems architectures, and their in-depth analysis is respected industry-wide by vendors and IT professionals alike," said Jim Jonez, senior director of marketing, Dot Hill. "These three Evaluator Group reports give readers a more detailed analysis of how Dot Hill's AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series can make a true impact on virtualized and Exchange environments, and more importantly the bottom line at midmarket organizations. When we designed the seriously smart AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series, we recognized that these organizations can no longer accept outdated, raw performance benchmarks. They need to know how a midrange storage solution is going to tackle their specific applications running dynamic workloads. The AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series simplifies the user experience, removes complexity, and delivers minute-by-minute storage tiering to deliver superior performance for virtualized workloads and applications such as Exchange."
