SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA, January 24, 2013 – Enhance Technology, Inc, a developer of SAN, RAID and NAS storage solutions for critical business applications, announced today the certification of 4TB SATA and SAS drive models for use with the company’s popular UltraStor, EnhanceRAID and Proavio storage brands. The addition of 4TB hard disk drives on Enhance Technology’s professional desktop and rack-mount lines will provide customers with greater capacity options for applications that consume large amounts of storage space. The update will include new 32TB desktop models on the popular Proavio EB800 series and up to 64TB on the award-wining Ultrastor ES and RS families - with a 96TB model available later this year.
“After a long and thorough validation process, we have certified a number of 4TB drive models including Western Digital WD4001FYYG Nearline SAS in our Enterprise-class systems and Hitachi HGST 7K400 Deskstar & Ultrastar SATA drive models across our desktop brands. 4TB drive options now give our customers a huge capacity boost for growing storage needs" said Luis Rodriguez, for Enhance Technology. "With an increase in customers offering cloud-based services and the need for long-term, local data retention, our 4TB models offer customers a cost-effective solution that addresses their capacity goals while reducing acquisition costs. In addition, growth in new markets such as 3D cinema and high resolution geophysical imaging create the perfect opportunity for customers to take 4TB-equipped solutions into serious consideration”.
Enhance Technology storage products along with 4TB disk combinations empower users with solutions that are both proven and scalable, up to 256TB, within a single storage tier. This amount of density results in significant cost savings through reduction of physical hardware and through the reduction of energy costs associated with operating multiple units to meet their capacity demands. "Enhance Technology is ready to help users leverage high capacity storage by providing affordable and qualified solutions designed to meet their data demands today and tomorrow." noted Rodriguez
