ExaStore 2008 Lets eHarmony Forget About Storage and Focus on Business
NEW YORK, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Exanet, the leading clustered NAS systems provider, announces the launch of ExaStore Clustered NAS 2008, designed to meet the most demanding business needs in a full range of applications and environments.
"Organizations have seen exponential growth in data and related storage requirements, creating a considerable burden," says Dr. Arnon Gat, Exanet President & CEO. "ExaStore 2008 has been enhanced to manage that burden."
Exanet's clustered NAS solutions leverage the latest microprocessors, facilitating high performance and superior energy and footprint efficiency.
eHarmony, the Internet relationship service with more than 17 million users, selected ExaStore to manage its exponential data growth; it expanded its initial system within less than two months - leveraging ExaStore 2008's automatic scalability.
"Installing ExaStore 2008, with its single file system, ease of management and high performance has already provided a significant ROI," says Cyrus Mohit, eHarmony's Director of Data Center Operations. "We are more efficiently leveraging our existing infrastructure and deploying more applications over NFS instead of iSCSI or traditional SAN. In addition, we no longer have to worry about volume management as ExaStore's ease of administration has made it a very simple, quick task."
ExaStore 2008 features scalable capacity and performance, leverages virtualized storage, and offers enterprise-class features. It independently provisions petabytes of capacity and scales performance to unprecedented levels online; its load balancing and single file system maximize storage utilization and minimize TCO.
"Organizations must find better ways to manage, protect and store file data," says Mark Peters, an analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group. "Exanet realized companies need performance as well as ways to improve utilization. It would be foolish for IT organizations, because of constrained budgets and energy resources, not to evaluate ExaStore, which specifically addresses information access and system optimization requirements."
ExaStore supports petabytes of storage, allowing management of over 100 billion files in a single name space. Its high performance, availability, and scalability ensure data is immediately accessible at any system size, enhancing productivity.
"Exanet offers customers a choice of hardware, allowing optimization of hardware purchasing decisions," says Clive Surfleet, Exanet's Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer.
"ExaStore responds to the highest responsibility for 'Green IT,'" Dr.
Gat concludes. "It maximizes hardware utilization and reduces power
consumption and footprint requirements."
ExaStore 2008 is available from Exanet (http://www.exanet.com) and its distributors worldwide.
