Dot Hill Systems says its Ultra56 AssuredSAN hybrid storage array is now shipping through its distribution channels.

The Ultra56 is aimed at big data, cloud and high performance computing environments. It is a hybrid storage array based on an ultra-density chassis that supports both NEBS Level 3 carrier and MIL-STD government requirements, and up to 1.34 petabytes (PB) of raw capacity in only 7 inches or 4U of rack space.

Ultra56 hybrid flash arrays support any combination of SSDs and hard disk drives to best suit application needs. The offering includes high performance 4004 controllers, affording up to 6,400MB/s of sustained read performance.

The Ultra56 is available with Dot Hill’s RealStor version 2.0 application workload-aware intelligence software, which maximises performance and simplifies management of hybrid storage arrays.

Jason Beeson, sales director at Hammer, a European specialist storage distributor, said: “This technology has been developed with mission-critical applications and data centre efficiency in mind, and has enabled us at Hammer to deliver Dot Hill’s storage offerings into new exciting markets.”
