LSI Logic Storage Systems, Inc. this week announced the availability of SANtricity(TM) Storage Manager 8.0 for the MetaStor(R) E-Series family of storage systems.
The company said SANtricity 8.0 includes snapshot capability, which is a high speed replication tool. According to LSI Logic, this optional feature creates near instantaneous, point-in-time images of selected volumes. Snapshot images can also accelerate the performance of other data intense
"The security of data has never been more important, so the bar continues to be raised for back-up and recovery," said Flavio Santoni, vice president of sales and marketing at LSI Logic Storage Systems, Inc. "At the same time, back-up windows are closing. SANtricity 8.0 with snapshot gives storage administrators the ability to back up data almost instantly, which means that risk can be lowered substantially without disrupting operations."
SANtricity 8.0 will be available for the MetaStor E4600 and E4400 in November and will be available for the E2400 in the first quarter of 2002.
