CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. - Xtore, a worldwide leading storage solution provider, today announced the showcase of XJ-SA24-448R-S, an ultra-density intelligent tiered storage enclosure at the Storage Networking World (SNW), slated for October 31 – November 3, 2006 at Orlando, Florida.

XJ-SA24-448R-S, a 4U 48-bay ultra-density JBOD enclosure under Xtore XJ2000 JBOD series introduces a whole new era of data storage architecture design and maintenance. The innovative dual-drive brick carrier design doubles the storage capacity a conventional storage enclosure can deliver. Up to forty-eight (48) 3.5-inch form-factor SAS/SATA drives can be mix-matched in this enclosure for cost-effective SATA or mission critical SAS storage environments. XJ-SA24-448R-S supports up to 36TB of SAS/SATA data storage at its 24-inch depth with optimized thermal solution. The universal SAS/SATA backplane enables up to 48Gbps transfer rate through four(4) wide host/expansion channels, two(2) per interface module. The cable-less, modular enclosure design with hot-swap components and redundant features increase reliability and ease of maintenance.

This new line of XJ2000 JBOD series is designed for demanding network storage applications, including enterprise data center, video and data streaming, disk-to-disk backup, disaster management and ILM/IIM. At SNW, Xtore will team with Adaptec to demonstrate a complete system in live mode, giving IT professionals hands-on experience on what will redefine the standard of storage system architecture and maintenance.

"With XJ-SA24-448R-S, IT professionals can deploy a robust yet reliable storage architecture that outperforms standard storage architectures while maintaining Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)," said Gene Lee, Xtore Corporate Vice President. "XJ-SA24-448R-S also increases the return on investment (ROI) through its 9TB/U value proposition to the enterprise business organizations."

"Adaptec and Xtore have coordinated on product integration and interoperability testing in a variety of configuration models to deliver easy-to-implement enterprise solutions that use Adaptec’s Unified SerialTM architecture," said John Noellert, vice president, Americas channel sales and marketing at Adaptec. "Unified SerialTM controllers from Adaptec enable IT professionals to utilize either low-cost, high-capacity SATA disk drives, high-performance SAS disk drives or a combination of both to build an XJ-SA24-448R-S system that can meet current and future storage needs. We are excited to work with Xtore at SNW and enable them to demonstrate the high-performance capabilities that our combined products offer in this new system."
