Boston Limited Rolls Out End-to-end SAS 3.0 Storage Server

For the past two decades, Boston Limited has been providing clients with tailored solutions and technology that are customized to fit their exact specifications.

The company has recently rolled out a new, end-to-end 12Gb/s SAS (News - Alert) 3.0 storage solution called Boston Igloo 2U-16T-Stor. This solution is by LSIMegaRAID technology.

Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston Limited, says, “Boston is delighted to launch our latest 12Gb/s SAS 3.0 solution, in partnership with LSI and Supermicro, that doubles the acceleration in storage performance for I/O intensive applications.”

The Boston Igloo 2U-16T-Stor has adapted LSI MegaRAID technology, LSI DataBolt bandwidth optimisation, Supermicro hardware, and 24 high performance Western Digital (News - Alert) XE 900GB 2.5" hard drives to form an enterprise-class platform for enterprise datacenter, cloud, virtualised server, and OLTP environments.

According to the company, the new storage server runs on SAS 3.0 technology and is suitable for businesses considering balancing the management of big data with the performance levels required of I/O intensive applications.

“With the constantly increasing demand for faster data access, problems caused by IO bottlenecks can seriously impact the chances of a business achieving its goals. Leveraging SAS 3.0 can help dramatically lower latency, improve performance and remove data bottlenecks that were previously unavoidable with existing technology.”

The new the Igloo 2U-16T-Stor comes with LSI’s latest generation of 12Gb/s SAS controller and this combination helps in offering the data protection and performance demanded by both applications and end users.

“Our portfolio of 12Gb/s MegaRAID SAS controllers and expanders delivers application accelerating performance, enhanced data protection and reduced TCO for the most demanding datacenters. We are delighted to be demonstrating these capabilities together with Boston at CeBIT (News - Alert),” said Thomas Pavel, EMEA Director, Channel Sales, LSI.

Boston portfolio includes the latest high-performance, power-optimized technologies into the data center, HPC, ISP, Military, VFX, Enterprise, and Broadcast markets, with multi-award winning server, storage, workstation, and clustered solutions.
