COLORADO SPRINGS, CO–(Marketwired – May 29, 2013) – X-IO, a recognized innovator in the storage industry, has won two awards at this year’s 2013 DCS awards: ‘Data Centre Appliance of the Year’ for its ISE Storage System and ‘SSD/Flash Product of the Year’ for its Hyper ISE solution.
The annual UK Datacentre Solutions Awards recognize the achievements of end-users, channel partners and vendors alike that operate in the data center field. It awards products, projects and services that have influenced and impressed the industry over the last 12 months. This year’s awards took place on May 23rd at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London.
Roger Walton, Vice President, EMEA for X-IO, collected the award and said: “X-IO’s Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) family of high-performance enterprise scale-out arrays eliminates the tradeoffs between storage capacity and performance and provides businesses with unmatched price/performance ratios and reliability for the most demanding data intensive applications and highly virtualized cloud-scale solutions. These unique values have boosted our channel with a number of key signings over the last 12 months, creating considerable demand for all of our ISE solutions across the UK and Europe. These awards, voted for by our thousands of customers and partners, acknowledge our hard work, and it’s great to be recognized in the industry.”
X‐IO is the only proven storage vendor to provide a single architecture for both hard disk based and hybrid storage arrays. ISE was built from the ground up to deliver performance, cost and reliability advantages that enable private and public cloud providers to achieve a more effective commercial model in a highly competitive market and help traditional infrastructure data centers to realize a much more efficient TCO.
X‐IO customers regularly report their appreciation for the ISE storage system’s ease of use and ability to maintain high performance levels even when the system reaches 100% capacity, as well as the fact that “it just works,” year after year after year. X-IO customers are also delighted that they have been able to reduce power, floor space and administrative overhead from their legacy SAN systems. These two awards demonstrate the market demand for a proven and consistent approach to these challenges.
X‐IO’s Hyper ISE is an enterprise grade hybrid storage system that fuses enterprise grade SSD and mission critical HDD as a single pool of storage, creating the ideal balance of price, performance and capacity. Hyper ISE uses patented Continuous Adaptive Data Placement (CADP) software to analyze the behavior of application I/O and place hotspot data onto SSD in real time. By creating the perfect partnership between the highest quality SSD and HDD, it outperforms all‐flash systems and costs 75% less.
Due to the truly unique “zero‐touch” design of the ISE hardware and software, all X‐IO solutions have an unrivaled seven year duty cycle backed by an inclusive five year, no-cost warranty. The company’s patented self-healing technology eliminates the need for costly and performance-detrimental disk replacement and rebuild in the event of a physical defect, instead providing true uninterrupted service at extremely high performance levels over the ISE’s life cycle.
