Spinnaker Networks’ SpinStor Storage Arrays Break Two Cents/Megabyte Barrier

Spinnaker Networks(TM) has broken the 2 cents/megabyte barrier with its SpinStor(TM) storage arrays based on 146 gigabyte disk drive technology.

The SpinStor RAID and SpinStor JBOD storage arrays now provide more than 2 terabytes of storage capacity in only 3U of rack space to meet the demand
for ultra-dense storage systems. “Spinnaker is the only supplier able to offer enterprise class NAS for under two cents per megabyte,” said Jeff
Hornung, Spinnaker Networks’ Vice President of Marketing.

“SpinStor delivers true enterprise class features such as NFS and CIFS, Scalable Clustering, Non-disruptive File and File System Movement, Snapshots, High Availability Failover and Mirroring, along with the ability to scale single file system sizes to hundreds of terabytes and single file sizes to 22 terabytes.”

The SpinServer 3300 System and 3300G NAS Gateway consolidate the file services of any size enterprise by non-disruptively scaling a single file system from 1 terabyte to 11,000 terabytes of capacity and provide cost savings through simplified management and more efficient use of hardware resources. Near linear performance scaling inherent to the Spinnaker architecture delivers the ever-increasing throughput demanded by the file system as it is scaled up in size.

The Spinnaker architecture delivered the highest results ever posted on the Standard Performance Evaluation Corp. (SPEC) System File Server 3.0 (SFS 3.0) test for NAS server performance, where the SpinServer 3300 recorded 23,363 IOPS in a single node test and 117,538 IOPS in a 6-node cluster test.
