Aberdeen Qualifies 2 TB Drives, Doubling Storage Capacities
100TB Server: Big Just Got Bigger
“As evidenced by our numerous VMware storage certifications, Aberdeen is at the forefront of storage technology,” states Jack Tateel, Executive VP for Aberdeen. “Increasing storage capacity and resource efficiency are paramount for growing businesses. By utilizing the 2 TB drive, Aberdeen will strengthen any company’s storage position.”
Aberdeen leverages the storage performance benefits of the eco-friendly enterprise level 2 TB drives by integrating them into its complete line of servers and storage. This prompt move to embrace density-efficient drives is exemplified with Aberdeen’s breadth of 2 TB drive optimized storage offerings. Entry-level, single processor servers ranging from the VMware Certified 12 TB Stirling 209 server starting under $4000 to the 8 TB AberNAS 160 Series starting under $5,000 in a 1U form factor are currently shipping. As for larger capacity servers Aberdeen offers the highly dense 24 TB VMware Certified 2U expandable AberNAS with a sub-$10k price point up to the dual Intel Xeon 5500 Series processor based enterprise-level servers able to deliver nearly unlimited storage scalability.
“Our customers have ever expanding storage needs and are looking for ways to meet those needs while also cutting power costs,” said Tom McDorman, vice president and general manager of WD’s enterprise storage solutions business unit. “With WD’s innovative enterprise product offerings, storage system manufacturers such as Aberdeen can now efficiently address customers’ ever expanding storage requirements.”
This latest announcement comes in a series of innovations undertaken by Aberdeen to help improve storage efficiency and performance, while finding ways to trim operating costs. Already supporting such industry advances as VMware vSphere, Intel Nehalem processors and the fastest RAID controllers in the market, Aberdeen’s adoption of the 2 TB SATA drive is a natural next step. Businesses looking for capacity-optimized storage systems can partner with Aberdeen to achieve an uncompromising competitive advantage in the storage market, with greater efficiency and high levels of quality, while stifling rising overhead costs.
