  • AIC/Xtore Booth # Hall 21, C16(2)
  • XD 2000™ series SAS/SATA RAID subsystem demonstrates with Seagate's 15K 300G CHEETAH™ SAS hard drives
  • XJ 1100™ series SAS/SATA JBOD Seagate's 10K 146G SAVVIO™ 2.5-inch SFF SAS hard drives
  • XN 1000™ WSS R2 series Network-attached Storage (NAS) as iSCSI Target implemented with Seagate 750GB BARRACUDA™ ES SATA hard drives

CeBIT Hannover, March 15 - 21, 2007 AIC/Xtore and SEAGATE TECHNOLOGY® will be showcasing an unprecedented live demonstration of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and iSCSI technologies at CeBIT 2007 slated for March 15 - 21, 2007 in Hannover, Germany.

Xtore's pre-released XD 2000™ series 3U 16-bay SAS/SATA RAID subsystem, XD-SA26-316R-S will be populated with Seagate's 15K 300GB CHEETAH™ SAS hard drives while the XJ 1100™ series 2U 24-bay SAS/SATA JBOD, XJ-SA26-224R-S will be implemented with Seagate's 10K 146GB SAVVIO™ 2.5-inch SFF SAS hard drives during the CeBIT showcase. Both enclosures will be cascaded by 1U and 3U Dual Xeon servers to demonstrate SAS 4X channels performance with I/O Meter.

For the highest performance and reliability, both XD-SA26-316R-S SAS RAID subsystem and XJ-SA26-224R-S SAS JBOD enclosures can be configured with dual I/O modules and highly reliable SAS drives providing a 1,200 x 2 MB/sec speed and dual port failover capability. An application for a clustering transaction server can apply the above scheme with the best throughput and reliability. These enclosures are complete with redundant and hot-swap I/O modules, fans, and power supplies for easy maintenance. Applications such as drive Video Editing can use pure SAS interface for on-line storage usage. It is the best and most cost-effective near-line or backup storage available.

Apart from SAS storage demonstration, AIC and Seagate's strategic partnership will be facilitating the demonstration of the XN 1000™ WSS R2 series with Seagate's high-capacity and reliability of BARRACUDA™ ES SATA hard drives. Xtore XN-104-T2S2-T, an iSCSI Target server will be connected to two XN 1000TM series iSCSI initiators to show the feature and performance of IP SAN, such as snapshot, VDS, DFS, VSS, MPIO, SIS, etc. Other static demonstrations include but not limited to innovative 1.5U form factor chassis, high performance Quad Opteron™ Chassis and SOHO storage canisters & towers.

"AIC/Xtore will take this opportunity to demonstrate the scalability and performance of the latest Serial Attached SCSI technology with our long-term strategic partner, Seagate Technology," said Gene Lee, Vice President of AIC/Xtore. "This latest technology will revolutionize storage and redefine the standard of storage interface at the core of every business level, and AIC/Xtore will make it affordable and available in our quality product portfolio."

"Seagate's enterprise solutions are designed to fulfill a range of needs, from the CHEETAH 15K.5 and SAVVIO 15K hard drive families delivering the highest levels of storage I/O performance and reliability, to the BARRACUDA ES providing record-breaking capacity," said Sherman Black, senior vice president and general manager of Seagate's Enterprise Compute business. "AIC/Xtore offers a compelling range of quality solutions for its customers and we are proud to join them in these demonstrations that showcase our solutions working together seamlessly."
