Wilmington, Delaware (PRWEB) February 16, 2012
Zerowait, the worldwide leader in independent NetApp support and Off-Lease system sales, announced today the availability of NAS Acceleration and Global Namespace Appliances for the NetApp community. Mike Linett, President of Zerowait said: ”This is the perfect solution for our customers who are looking for more performance and easier data management – without the excessive purchase and support costs of upgrading their NetApp filers. Each appliance contains a combination of DRAM, SDD and SAS drives with caching algorithms to accelerate performance, allowing our customers to retain their current NetApp storage and add low cost archive storage, all for far less than the cost of a major upgrade.”
Laurence Jones, Zerowait’s Managing Director in Australia added: “Many of my clients in the Film, Animation and Special Effects markets push both sides of the storage envelope, requiring exceptional performance and petabyte data sets. With NAS acceleration they can separate performance from capacity, adding additional accelerators to handle additional users, and utilizing low cost, high density SATA storage. Rack space requirements go down, greatly reducing their operating expenses, and rendering speeds go up, improving their productivity. It really is a win-win.”
In addition to acceleration, the ability to combine all NAS storage into a single global mount greatly eases management in large, multi-department deployments. Rather than create inefficient storage silos, pooled storage allows growth while minimizing excess storage.
Rob Robinson, Vice President of Sales, concluded: “With Off-lease NetApp systems, our low cost SimplStor disk archive, and now NAS optimization, we can offer our clients the most cost effective solution to both performance and capacity. Customers can specify the storage and performance they need, and neither has to be compromised to make the other work. And all of this can be achieved for far less than conventional NetApp, EMC or Isilon deployments.”
