"In the era of high density, virtualized, and scalable Software Defined Storage environments, our customers demand suitable storage solutions that fit their needs," said Andy Lee, director of product marketing at EchoStreams, a cloud solutions provider. "PMC Adaptec storage solutions have delivered power-efficient performance and scalable connectivity enabling us to provide products to meet our customers' demands."The HBA 1000 was designed to scale, connecting up to 16 storage devices natively, or scaling even further with an expander. It enables simple implementation and management to increase resource utilization and lower total cost of ownership. "Hyperscale cloud deployments require an optimum balance of high performance and power efficiency," said Mr. Ding Yu, director of product management at Inspur, the largest domestic server provider in China. "PMC's HBA 1000 is providing Inspur quick time to market with leadership server storage solutions that deliver to these demanding hyperscale requirements." The HBA 1000 has broad operating system and leading Software Defined Storage (SDS) stack support, ecosystem compatibility and a unified set of tools and drivers with forward and backward compatibility with other PMC Adaptec solutions. Management and compatibility are further enhanced by supporting both 6Gb/s and 12Gb/s storage components. "Canonical's Cloud Alliances team has been working closely with PMC to ensure leading Ubuntu support for the HBA 1000," said John Zannos, VP Alliances at Canonical. "With the industry's highest port count, lowest power and leading performance, PMC's new HBA is an ideal pairing with Ubuntu and OpenStack Software Defined Storage workloads." "Ingram has been distributing PMC Adaptec solutions for many years, and I am impressed with PMC's commitment to deliver efficient and scalable storage solutions," said Tom Kagele, senior sales manager, Ingram Micro. "The HBA 1000 is another example of this commitment, and we are excited to provide this compelling storage solution to our extensive customer base."
