OWC Demos New Jupiter mini-SAS Shared SAN Solution with Bandwidth to 48Gb/s and Capacities to 3600TB at NAB
Up to 6x Faster and Up to 6x Lower Infrastructure Cost than Fibre Channel
April 16, 2012, Las Vegas, NV - Other World Computing (OWC®) http://www.macsales.com, a leading zero emissions Mac® and PC technology company, announced today it will showcase its new line of Jupiter mini-SAS™ shared storage solutions at NAB this week. Built upon the mini-SAS interface for blazing bandwidth up to 48Gb/s, the Jupiter family of racks, towers, and workgroup switches combine the highest level of data sharing performance and scalable capacity of up to 3600TB at a cost that is up to 6x less than fibre channel infrastructures. The Jupiter mini-SAS solutions also offer straight-forward installation in Mac and Windows OS environments with the simplicity of direct attached storage (DAS) using a single cable connection. OWC will demonstrate the high performance and scalability of the Jupiter mini-SAS shared storage solution at its NAB booth #14110 in the lower level of the LVCC's South Hall.
OWC has been a leader in the storage and computer upgrades industry for more than 24 years, and its 24/7 free lifetime US-based support has been praised by users around the world. Further instilling confidence in Jupiter mini-SAS is an OWC 5-year warranty and an expert support staff trained specifically on the Jupiter family of storage. Unlike other piecemeal SAN systems that require multiple vendor support, all the components of Jupiter mini-SAS come from OWC and are engineered to work seamlessly together.
"By leveraging our expertise in direct attached storage, the Jupiter mini-SAS brings simplicity, implementation flexibility and a much higher performance to SAN for over 80 percent less than the price of the leading standard of fibre channel," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. "Then, when you consider the scalability it provides, our single-contact support and 5-year warranty, the Jupiter mini-SAS is clearly the best shared storage solution not just for production houses of all sizes but for businesses across all industries."
Backed by a five-year warranty and OWC's 24/7 free lifetime US-based support, the OWC Jupiter mini-SAS will be available from OWC in June in a variety of configurations with solution pricing starting at $3,995.00. For added value, OWC includes a user-friendly management and monitoring application to monitor Jupiter's overall system health, performance, maintenance and diagnostics.
The new Jupiter mini-SAS shared storage solution joins OWC's existing line of performance-leading portable and desktop external storage solutions and its Mercury brand of Solid State Drives for Macs and PCs.
