IceWeb Offers Iplicity Data Storage Platform
Cost-conscious businesses looking to maximize the amount of data storage available might turn to IceWeb and the company's Iplicity platform.Storage solutions and online cloud computing application services provider IceWeb announced the launch of its Iplicity Data Storage platform, which enables the incorporation of available disk storage resident in non-Iplicity-based legacy storage vendor products such as those produced by EMC, Network Appliance, Hitachi, Equalogic, Hewlett-Packard and IBM. Storage solutions are available as NAS (Network Attached Storage), SAN (Storage Area Networks), or the company's patent LCCSD (Locally Connected Cloud Storage Devices).
Capabilities include system-to-system replication, site-to-site replication (push or pull - to the file level with bandwidth metering), active virus scanning, integrated search capability, SCSI Target and Initiator software. Each of the Iplicity Controller Units is a 3U 16 Bay SAS/SATA storage server chassis, populated with high performance Intel processors and loaded with connectivity options. To help ensure operating system performance and integrity, each Iplicity unit has dual redundant rear accessible high performance hot-swap SAS drives to service our software.
"This capability allows users with less flexible storage deployments to manage space they have available in their existing environment completely, as if it were directly attached to the Iplicity network storage, enabling them to take full advantage of features such as unlimited snapshots, local and remote (push and pull) system, volume and folder replication, bandwidth consumption management, capabilities to integrate with VMWare and Citrix Xen, integrated virus scanning, the capability to convert this older storage into resources available to IceWeb's LCCSD technology," Dunham said. "It's an intelligent simple choice."
