Xiotech offers hybrid storage system

Best of SSD and HDD in one product claims company

Storage company Xiotech has launched a new product in its ISE range of products claiming that it combines the best of hard disk drives and solid state disks into a single product.

Hybrid ISE uses a new technique called Continuous Adaptive Data Placement said Xiotech's CTO Steve Sicola explained that the technology brings an element of learning to storage. "We've implemented an expert system a type of artificial intelligence, that can work out factors such as whether it's worth moving data from hard drive to solid state." He said that this had the effect of increasing the I/O performance "We get four times as much I/O as everyone else," he added., "and in much less space." In terms of performance per form format, the Hybrid ISE clocks in at more than 60,000 IOPS in a 3U unit scaling up to nearly 900,000 IOPS in a rack.

Sicola said that Continuous Adaptive Data Placement was not the same technology as peering which he said was just another manifestation of hierarchical storage management.

The product was unveiled to selected customers a couple of weeks ago and Sicola said that the company had been gratified by the response. "Within the first 10 days of talking to customers we sold 50 percent of our entire inventory," he said adding that sales had been particularly strong in companies specialising in high performance computing, VDI, cloud computing and data warehousing. "In fact, it's for any company that's having performance issues with virtualisation and VDI.

The product has received the analyst thumbs-up. With Xiotech's Continuous Adaptive Data Placement, Hybrid ISE provides an advanced level of automation to greatly simplify the management of storage," said Randy Kerns, senior strategist at Evaluator Group. "Greater storage efficiency can be achieved with the intelligence designed into Hybrid ISE, without additional management tasks."

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
