iQstor Networks, Inc., a leading manufacturer and provider of data storage solutions for government, education and business, has announced the introduction of its latest high performing disk array, the iQ-XL.

The iQ-XL offers extraordinary speed of data transfer that is ideal for HD content with the best price/ performance in the industry. This 16-bay disk array features:

  •     Sustained throughput of over 4,000MB per second
  •     Enhanced Active Streaming Technology – eliminating frame drop
  •     True Active/Active controllers
  •     Support SD/HD Multi-Stream Workflows
  •     Support for 2k/4k Full DPX Workflows

With its eight - 8gig FC ports, the iQ-XL is the perfect solution for digital media workgroups. The iQ-XL includes eight gigabytes of cache, supports SAS and NL-SAS drives and utilizing JBOD expansion can scale up to 720TB when fully expanded.

“The iQ-XL brings Tier 1 high-speed storage capabilities to small and medium businesses at an affordable price point” said iQstor Director of Sales, Paul Zarou. “The iQ-XL’s optimized performance will be very attractive for organizations that perform digital audio/video workgroup editing, internet streaming and broadcasting.”

The extraordinary speed of data transfer is made possible by an embedded Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor on each of the two active/active controllers. The iQ-XL is designed with enhanced Active Streaming Technology, eliminating dropped frames while delivering stable performance.

Zarou explains the practical benefit of the internal architecture of the iQ-XL: “As the world moves into the new digital HD-content era driven by films and the Internet, traditional systems are not designed to store and retrieve the large, unstructured data files that are typical of high definition content. That’s why the iQ-XL was developed. It’s ideally suited for this sort of processing. This is what makes our product so relevant in today’s digital media arena.”

The iQ-XL is MAID 2.0-compliant for energy efficient operation.
To meet database requirements, the iQ-XL delivers 500,000 IOPS.
