STORAGE CAPACITY BREAKS RAID LIMITS
October 1, 2007
The Pivot3 RAIGE (RAID Across Independent Gigabit Ethernet) storage cluster is based on the company’s block-level virtualization architecture. It reduces storage infrastructure costs by up to 50 percent while increasing scalability and data availability, the company says. The Pivot3 RAIGE storage cluster, which is designed for both Windows and Linux environments, breaks the capacity limits of physical RAID devices by using block-level virtualization and completely eliminating specialized RAID hardware and storage controllers. Space-efficient data protection is supported across multiple networked storage nodes, called Databanks, which are built using industry-standard x86 servers and disk drives and are connected via common Gigabit Ethernet. Databanks are added to cost-effectively scale capacity to hundreds of terabytes. Pivot3 Inc.
