These findings come on the heels of Taneja's recent technology validation of AMI's StorTrends 3400i Dual Controller iSCSI SAN.  The validation was conducted by Sr. Taneja Storage Analyst Jeff Boles – a storage industry veteran with over 20 years of relevant data center experience. 

Mr. Boles has summarized the results of the validation in a Special Report now available on the StorTrends and Taneja websites.  In the document, Mr. Boles highlights: 

  • The StorTrends 3400i's rich suite of replication features, most notably HA mirroring of volumes across systems or controllers and both synchronous and asynchronous replication
  • StorTrends unique Snapshot-Assisted Replication (SAR) feature that uses a point-in-time snapshot to identify a replication point – only data from point is replicated
  • StorTrends WAN optimization through Wide Area Data Services (WDS) – a capability that reduces transmit data through de-duplication and compression for fast and encrypted transport
  • The intuitive, easy-to-use StorTrends ManageTrends software GUI    

Mr. Boles notes that "we are hard pressed to identify any other storage system with similar levels of single system scalability and performance that also come fully enabled for such a broad range of HA and multi-site DR capability without additional cost, nor with similar ease of use and simplicity."

Parties interested in reviewing the DR capabilities of the StorTrends 3400i array are encouraged to attend StorTrends' upcoming DR Webinar hosted by Spiceworks on October 16, 2012.  For more information, please see the event registration page at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/922191690.
