Dot Hill Introduces Versatile And Powerful Next Generation Architecture For High-Bandwidth Cloud Services And Vertical Market Storage Environments

LONGMONT, Colo., Oct. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq:HILL), a leading provider of SAN storage solutions, today unveiled its next-generation RAID storage architecture. Dot Hill's ninth-generation storage controller platform will be introduced across its entire entry level and midrange portfolio, with product-specific announcements to come in the months ahead.

"Dot Hill is committed to meeting our customers' needs through continuous innovation and technology leadership in our target markets," said Andy Davis, senior vice president of engineering, Dot Hill. "The new high-bandwidth products based on this platform are designed to extend our offerings for entry and midrange data centers, cloud service providers, and targeted vertical markets including media & entertainment, oil & gas, telecommunications, Big Data analytics and digital image archiving. We believe these first-to-market solutions further Dot Hill's position as a key provider of high performance storage that delivers better utilization and better performance without extensive IT resources or training."

The technology includes numerous new features and first-to-market innovations:
  • Converged Network Interface
  • Leading edge 16Gb Fibre Channel, 10Gb iSCSI, and 12Gb SAS connectivity
  • ASIC based RAID Companion Processor
  • Forward and backward meta data compatibility
  • Full Disk Encryption (FDE) support
  • Flash SSD drive support
  • Full complement of Data Management Software

Ninth Generation Architecture

"We've responded aggressively to customer demand for higher bandwidth storage network solutions with greater flexibility," said Ken Day, chief technology officer, Dot Hill. "Through a major engineering initiative, we've designed our ninth-generation architecture, code named 'Gallium,' to provide the fastest Fibre Channel, iSCSI and SAS connectivity available in the industry with sustained throughput performance ranging from 4GB/sec to 12GB/sec depending on model and configuration. This architecture delivers unparalleled flexibility, allowing organizations to instantly convert their storage from 16Gb Fibre Channel to 10Gb iSCSI, vice versa, or to use a combination of both. This flexibility protects IT investments by providing backward-compatibility with existing 1Gb iSCSI, and 4Gb and 8Gb Fibre Channel devices, while ensuring organizations have a path to adapt their storage to meet changing business needs. And, like all of our prior generations, these products will be meta data compatible with our installed base. No forklift upgrade is required."
