"BigStorage Inc., the market leader in open-systems storage
solutions, today announced the unveiling of the tRAID, the first
industrial-strength RAID for Linux. The tRAID will provide users
with a highly reliable, enterprise-class storage solution at an
open-systems price. With its extensive experience in open-systems
hardware for Linux and UNIX, BigStorage has built the tRAID to
fulfill the need for scalable and robust hardware solutions for the
ever-increasing Linux platform."
"As large enterprises, ISPs and Dot-com companies are embracing
Linux, the need for cost-effective open-systems storage solutions
is increasing at a dramatic rate", said Sam Bogoch, president and
CEO of BigStorage Inc. "Priced for affordability and designed for
maximum uptime and reliability, the tRAID offers all the benefits
of an external RAID configuration and is the first state-of-the-art
RAID solution for a Linux-hosted environment."
"The BigStorage tRAID can be configured to hold over 2
terabytes of useable storage per subsystem, and can chain as many
as 2 additional 3U JBOD units to the controller unit.
Available in both UltraSCSI and FibreChannel versions, the tRAID
promises reliability with top-notch controller design, hot-swap SCA
drives and power supplies, and high airflow layout. In addition to
the benefits of its bullet-proof components and superb design, the
tRAID is backed by BigStorage's benchmark twenty-four-hour-a-day,
seven-day-a-week Live Response customer support system to guarantee
maximum client uptime."
