Winchester Systems Offers Virtualized Infrastructure White Paper


Winchester Systems Inc., a leading data storage solutions provider and VMware Technology Alliance Partner, announced the publication of a new white paper, "A Totally Redundant and Virtualized Infrastructure Solution." The paper highlights the business continuity and disaster recovery services provided in a VMware environment by their VMware Ready V-IP SAN Storage Appliance and FlashDisk RAID Disk Arrays.

The v-IP SAN data storage appliance creates a "virtual IP SAN" that provides business continuity locally with failover clusters and disaster recovery protection with remote replication — all at very low cost. The white paper outlines the IP SAN functionality and highlights some of the extensive VMware testing procedures performed with v-IP SAN and FlashDisk RAID Disk arrays.

v-IP SAN data storage appliance and 19 FlashDisk RAID Disk Array models can be found within the online VMware Partner Product Catalog and can be found within the online VMware Hardware Compatibility List. The FlashDisk RAID disk array products offer Fibre Channel, SAS and SATA tiered storage for all popular servers and operating systems:

  • Fibre Channel Disk Arrays: FC3494R, FC3494S, FC3414R, FC3412S
  • SATA 3U Disk Arrays: SX3418R, SX3414S, SX3488R, SX3484S, SX3498R, SX3494S
  • SATA 2U Disk Arrays: SX2318R, SX2314S, SX2388R, SX2382S
  • Clustering and Remote Replication Appliance: vIP SAN Storage Appliance.

"Now clustering for business continuity and remote replication for disaster recovery is simple and inexpensive with v-IP SAN and FlashDisk RAID Disk Arrays," explained Mr. Joel Leider, the company’s chief executive officer. He continued, "Best of all, it is all certified VMware Ready."

All FlashDisk models include a unique "High Speed RAID 6" that delivers the combination of high speed and dual-parity data protection demanded of centralized storage that supports the clustered ESX servers in a typical VMware environment.

RAID 6 offers dual parity for the utmost in data protection. Even if two disk drives fail or become unreadable, the data will remain intact. Powered by the newest generation of hardware ASICs, the dual parity RAID 6 runs at full speed for Fibre Channel, SAS and SATA drives with little or no performance degradation. According to the company’s white paper, "High Speed RAID 6," RAID 6 dual parity offers 500 to 30,000 times longer MTDL (Mean Time to Data Loss) than RAID 5. An informative 6-minute presentation "RAID 6 Essentials" is also available.
