Dot Hill announces general availability of the Ultra56 AssuredSAN Hybrid storage array

30 Jan 2015 Longmont - The Dot Hill Ultra56 AssuredSAN hybrid storage array is now shipping through its distribution channels. The Ultra56 is a hybrid storage array based on an ultra-density chassis that supports both NEBS Level 3 carrier and MIL-STD government requirements and up to 1.34 petabytes (PB) of raw capacity in only 7 inches or 4U of rack space. This high-density AssuredSAN array includes high performance 4004 controllers, affording up to 6400MB/s of sustained read performance. Dot Hill has the only high density storage product on the market today that meets the extremely demanding requirements of telecommunications carriers, service providers and tactically deployed government installations.

The Ultra56 is available with Dot Hill's RealStor version 2.0 application workload-aware intelligence software, which maximizes performance and simplifies management of hybrid storage arrays. Other flash-based storage solutions cannot adequately address the constantly changing data challenges faced by organisations today. Featuring multiple patent-pending technologies, the Dot Hill Ultra56 AssuredSAN next-generation solution with RealStor 2.0 raises the bar on hybrid array capability and stands alone in its ability to deliver high performance and optimal real-time data placement, while maintaining ease-of-use and best-in-class affordability and density. Ultra56 hybrid flash arrays support any combination of SSDs and hard disk drives to best suit application needs.

"The Ultra Series of storage solutions is the latest example of how Dot Hill evolves storage through continued innovation. Specifically, the ultra-density chassis of the Ultra56 offers twice the performance and twice the capacity per rack unit compared to traditional chassis, for unprecedented throughput and transactional performance. This technology has been developed with mission-critical applications and data centre efficiency in mind, and has enabled us at Hammer to deliver Dot Hill's storage offerings into new exciting markets", stated Jason Beeson, sales director, Hammer, a European specialist storage distributor.

Incorporating Dot Hill's high performance AssuredSAN 4004 storage controllers, the Ultra56 delivers proven 99.999 percent data availability and features platinum-rated power supplies. With hard drives of 6TB in capacity, up to 336TB raw capacity per chassis can be achieved.

Three Ultra56 expansion enclosures can be combined for a total of 1.34PB of storage within a single array. Performance is exceptional with sustained reads of up to 6400 MB/s, large block writes of up to 5300 MB/s, and small block random reads of up to 100,000 IOPS from HDDs or SSDs. All devices are hot-swappable and the system is designed with two front removable device drawers for ease of service and maintenance.

The Ultra56 is well suited for environments requiring extreme reliability and density as well as applications ranging from Big Data, Cloud, and high performance computing to wireless and cellular infrastructure. Built to carrier grade specifications, the Ultra56 is tested and compliant with the stringent NEBS Level 3 shock and vibration requirements and is available with both AC and -48V DC power options.
