June 24, 2008, Irvine, CA – Today, ThinkCP™ Technologies rolled out Think ViPoR Storage 10G-Extreme SAN Solutions, providing customers with the latest in storage technologies, evolutionary architecture, easy manageability, an outstanding cost-to-performance ratio and low total cost of ownership (TCO). The fully integrated and tested core platforms provide between 1 to 4 AMD Opteron Quad Core Processors, 12 to 48 Terabytes of SAS or SATA II iSCSI SAN or NAS storage and an optional 10Gig-E NPU multi-path NIC. The entry level 2U, 12 Terabyte iSCSI Solution is priced well under $10,000. The new series is designed for all customers ranging from small businesses with rigorous I.T. requirements through departmental and large enterprise customers.
The high performance Neterion 10Gig-E interface enables network administrators to preserve their primary network environment, infrastructure, cabling, operating systems and network administrative tools without the need for additional training. The solutions feature integrated Open-E software that helps deliver easy to manage, OS independent storage applications with proven performance in heterogeneous network environments. Combining AMD Opteron Quad-Core processor technologies within the overall design serves to further optimize the platforms for computing and data I/O intensive storage applications, such as delivery of streaming media.
Product Development Manager for the new solutions, Craig Resnick comments, “We think it’s incredible that we can provide customers with a 12 Terabyte 2U iSCSI SAN solution with an AMD Opteron Quad-Core CPU for under $10,000 – especially with performance this impressive. Many of our customers agree, having discovered these solutions to be ideal, cost-effective storage platforms for certain ISP, surveillance and streaming media applications. And just as we provide with our other storage, server and cluster solutions, we design the custom solution to fit the customer’s needs instead of trying to make the customers fit the solution. Custom support options enable customers to add on-site, 24×7 warranty support, advance exchange, “keep your broken hard drive” and other service options. When customers need something more – or something less – if it can be done we do it. We adapt to the customer’s needs.”
