agami Systems announced today it is redefining the rules of network storage by bringing together for the first time a highly functional yet affordable choice of storage to small and medium-size businesses (SMBs). With the agami Information Server AIS1006, agami Systems is delivering unprecedented levels of enterprise-class functionality, free live replication, industry-leading throughput levels of 300 MB/s and 6TB of capacity at a break-through price point of $2,995 per Terabyte. Available immediately at http://www.agami.com, the AIS1006 is retailing for $17,970.
"With the development and introduction of the AIS1006, agami Systems is changing the way that SMBs think about unified storage. For too long, this community has been limited to low-end disk arrays or Windows server based solutions that typically fall short when it comes to breadth of features, performance, scalability, and reliability. Our offering directly addresses the storage needs of this fast growing yet under-served market and delivers simplified, yet advanced solutions at the right price point," says David Stiles, President and CEO, agami Systems, Inc.
The AIS1006 is based on agami System's hallmark style of network storage -- systems that don't compromise on functionality, raise the industry bar on performance -- at prices that enable customers of all sizes to reap the benefits of enterprise storage. The AIS1006 offers a feature set that includes full multi-protocol storage -- iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, NDMP, SNMP; full data integrity & reliability including RAID5 with parallel rebuild; full environmental monitoring with call-home features; Snapshots; and free live replication. The high performance iSCSI implementation is fully compatible with VMware, Microsoft Exchange, and Microsoft SQL Server.
As SMBs and remote offices confront the everyday challenges of data protection and ensuring business continuity, agami Systems' live file replication, agamiFSR, replicates file systems between a primary and a secondary AIS server, either synchronously or asynchronously, over a LAN or WAN. It can be used to replicate critical data, to consolidate data from several remote locations in real time, or to establish multiple remote locations for disaster recovery. With this functionality being offered free of charge on the AIS1006, SMB customers can for the first time implement the same kinds of disaster recovery and business continuity solutions deployed by large enterprises.
