With high-speed connections, remote replication and drive-spin-down the next generation Dot Hill 3720 8Gb SAN solutions help customers combat storage access constraints with higher bandwidth SAN infrastructure able to support future growth. With 8Gb fibre channel connectivity these systems will improve read/write performance for any storage area network, making them the first choice for applications such as databases, business analysis, and video streaming.
The Dot Hill 3720 with optional AssuredRemote software provides the easiest array-to-array remote replication solution available. AssuredRemote uses familiar snapshot technology to take an instant copy and transmit it to another array, creating a backup copy. With AssuredRemote, IT managers can entirely eliminate the cost of creating, transporting and storing vaulted tape copies.
Utilizing Dot Hill’s patented EcoStor technology, these systems have completely eliminated cache batteries, using instead super capacitors and flash memory to provide infinite cache backup during a power loss, while being environmentally friendly. The 3720 storage systems also feature drive-spin-down which saves energy by allowing drives to rest when not in use.
