Dot Hill’s AssuredSAN® Pro 5000 Series is a hybrid SSD and HDD SAN storage system that accelerates I/O. Using the Pro 5000 Series with integrated RealStor™ management software, IT managers can improve data responsiveness, remove guesswork and simplify SAN storage management.
RealStor, Dot Hill’s storage tiering software takes responsiveness to a new level - that of continuously responding to user data storage demands by moving 'hot' data to a high-speed SSD tier.
The AssuredSAN Pro 5000 storage tiering software responds to data access needs automatically, without human intervention or policy setting. The AssuredSAN Pro 5000 detects data storage priorities and optimizes the delivery of priority/high demand data in real time. By prioritizing data and migrating it in real-time the system can deliver up to 80% of the IO from the SSD tiering, dramatically improving overall storage performance and response time.
Key applications where hybrid storage and SSDs improve performance are: database lookup, virtual desktop, storage for virtualized servers, self-service kiosks, student online registration, and campus-wide video surveillance monitoring and transcoding, and metadata storage.
