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."
