Emprise 7000 Storage System, with ICON Manager and Virtual View Integration, Helps Milliman Care Guidelines Simplify Storage Management
Date:3/17/2009

ISE Technology from Xiotech Selected by National Provider of Clinical Guidelines for Virtualization Initiative

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Xiotech Corporation today announced that Milliman Care Guidelines selected Xiotech's Emprise(TM) 7000 storage system, powered by Intelligent Storage Element Technology (ISE(TM)), to support its virtualization initiative. Milliman Care Guidelines will use the Emprise system, along with Xiotech's Web Services-based ICON Manager and Virtual View, to simplify storage monitoring, management and provisioning tasks as the organization virtualizes its 40 physical servers.

Located in Seattle, Milliman Care Guidelines independently develops and produces evidence-based clinical guidelines and software used by more than 1,000 hospitals, providers and health plans. With 40 servers running at only 5 percent capacity each, the organization needed to improve server utilization and decided to move to a virtualized storage and server environment.

"Emprise 7000 provides the high performance and reliability we need, along with great integration for our virtualized IT environment," said Milliman Care Guidelines Senior Network Administrator Holly Palmer. "We are really impressed by how easy it is to allocate storage across the array, server and virtual environments with ICON Manager's Virtual View feature. We simply select the virtual machine and specify how much storage the system should provision. ICON Manager does all the work quickly behind the scenes, eliminating the time-consuming steps we otherwise would have to perform across multiple consoles."

Virtual View, a plug-in to Xiotech's ICON Manager, uses industry-standard Web Services to enable administrators to manage storage across the array, server and virtual environments from a single interface. As a result, organizations have a global view of the three storage layers (array, ESX and virtual machine) along with automated provisioning across the layers - all from a single console. With Virtual View, Milliman Care Guidelines will be able to manage its storage faster and more easily, while reducing the risk of misconfigurations.

The Emprise 7000 storage system, with its self-healing ISE technology, also will serve as an integral component of the company's disaster recovery initiative, serving as the central repository for all of the organization's critical applications and data. To further ensure business continuity, Milliman Care Guidelines will replicate all of the Emprise data to an off-site location.

Xiotech's Emprise 7000 storage system is built on patented ISE technology, which includes a combination of preventive and self-healing capabilities. ISE technology also overcomes performance issues of traditional data storage systems by tightly integrating drive, enclosure and controller software, and by distributing much of the processing and cache into the enclosure. In addition, ISE technology provides greatly improved and simplified scalability by pooling storage into a singular element that is 10 to 20 times the capacity of a typical disk drive, with the internal processing power and cache needed to handle all drive management functions.

The Emprise 7000 system supports up to 64 ISE (1,024 terabytes) and is managed by dual, clustered storage controllers. It includes the Web Services-based ICON Manager with its Virtual View integration capabilities for managing virtualized environments, optimal storage virtualization, a distributed cluster architecture and Intelligent Provisioning. The system also supports Xiotech's suite of data replication solutions.
