Medea Corp. has introduced two new RAID solutions at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) trade show. The company’s XStream and StreamRAID disk arrays offer SATA-based nearline storage designed for a variety of uses, include file archives, data management, disaster recover and remote backup.
XStream starts with 1TB of storage and can scale to over 4TB in a single 3U rack, with its disk arrays daisy-chained or SAN attached. Data transfer rates top 170MB per second, using intelligent caching technology to allow multiple servers to store backups on XStream simultaneously.
StreamRAID offers 3U and 4U rack mountable enclosures with room for up to 48 SATA drives; storage capacities can reach 16TB per rack. It features a no-single-point-of-failure design that keeps it running even when there’s a failure with a drive, built-in 8-port Fibre channel switching technology and in-band and remote system monitoring.
Contact Medea Corp. for more information about pricing. As MacCentral went to press with this article, the company had a page up for StreamRAID but not for XStream.
