AssuredSAN 5000 Pro Series: Seriously Smart, Real-Time Tiered Storage for the
Midrange

The AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series with RealStor software takes tiered storage to
a new level — beyond competitors' batch migration and into a new era of
autonomic, real-time data tiering. With RealStor™, businesses gain the
advantage of very high performance SSDs, using them to their maximum benefit,
while storing less frequently accessed data on slower, but much less
expensive, hard disk drives. Designed for the midrange market, the AssuredSAN
Pro 5000 Series is a high-performance, highly available, fully integrated
storage solution that delivers consistently faster access to current data with
built-in, real-time, autonomic tiered storage and virtualization.

AssuredSAN Storage—Wicked-fast Performance, 99.999 Percent Availability

The Dot Hill AssuredSAN storage portfolio offers up to 384 terabytes of
capacity in a single system, great ease-of-use and up to 99.999 percent
availability. The AssuredSAN 4000 Series features the latest storage
networking technologies such as 8Gb Fibre Channel and 6Gb SAS.

The newest member of the AssuredSAN family, the 4000 Series sets a new Dot
Hill performance standard. Designed with a powerful processor, these systems
provide accelerated performance for sequential workloads, making them ideal
solutions for high performance computing, telecommunications data capture,
media streaming, video post-production, and broadcasting. The 4000 Series
supports 5200 MB/s sequential reads, and 3000 MB/s sequential writes, ideal
for HD, 2K, 4K, and 3D workflows.

AssuredSAN solutions feature a number of eco-friendly enhancements such as
drive spin-down capability and 595-watt 80 PLUS-rated (greater than 80 percent
energy efficiency) power supplies for reduced operating costs. Additionally,
AssuredSAN arrays also features Dot Hill's patented EcoStor™ "green"
battery-free alternative for cache memory, which leverages a combination of
super capacitors and flash memory that outlasts traditional batteries nearly
fivefold. Business benefits include lower maintenance and disposal costs and
reduced server and application down time due to scheduled battery replacement
and maintenance.
