April 2014 - Genstor introduces the New Hitachi 6TB "He" Enterprise drives in the Infortrend RAID Solutions

Genstor Systems is pleased to announce availability of the Hitachi 6TB Enterprise class drives 6Gb SAS hard drives in the Infortrend DS3000 Series RAID Solutions. The He6 delivers the world's first hermetically sealed, helium hard drive, the Ultrastar ® He6 for massive scale-out environments. Why does helium make a difference? Helium has only one-seventh the density of air. Replacing air with helium inside a hard drive dramatically reduces the turbulence caused by the spinning disk, cuts power consumption and results in a lower temperature within the disk drive.

PyX iSCSI Protocol Stack

The advanced features designed into the architecture of the PyX iSCSI protocol stack enables efficient and cost-effective storage transport by optimizing bandwidth usage, enabling unlimited storage to be attached to each target device, and leveraging existing network technologies. The iSCSI technology, fully compliant with the IETF RFC 3270 standard, enables an enterprise-level IP storage platform that transports data to and from networked storage with full error recovery (ERL2), automatic load balancing, and multi-path capabilities previously available only in costly Fibre Channel architectures. Because of the ubiquity of IP networks, iSCSI transmits data from any storage (SATA/SAS/SCSI, Fibre Channel/etc.) over LANs, WANs, or the Internet and enables location independent data storage and retrieval.
