HAVANT, England, June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xyratex Ltd (Nasdaq: XRTX), a leading provider of data storage technology, will be exhibiting at Microsoft TechEd North America 2012 in Orlando, Florida June 11th through June 14th. At TechEd, Xyratex will demonstrate an all-in-one clustered continuous availability storage solution running Windows Server 2012 on a Xyratex OneStor Integrated Application Platform with a pair of embedded server modules.

Xyratex's OneStor data storage solutions are a combination of modular enclosures and intelligent storage controllers that provide OEMs the ability to create application specific solutions and the flexibility to choose storage processing power and form factor in meeting specific design criteria. Form factors range from 2U12 X 3.5 inch enclosures up to an ultra dense 5U84 X 3.5 inch enclosure that allows up to 2PB of raw storage in a single 42U data center rack.  OneStor Integrated Application Platforms supporting Windows Server 2012 will be introduced later this year.

"Windows Server 2012 includes notable innovations in storage. We're excited to see companies such as Xyratex demonstrate its Cluster-in-a-Box solution, built on Windows Server 2012 capabilities, at the Microsoft Partner Pavilion at Microsoft TechEd in Orlando, FL this week," said Thomas Pfenning, General Manager of Windows File Server Foundation, Microsoft.

"This year's TechEd event provides Xyratex with a great opportunity to demonstrate the high availability feature of our OneStor Integrated Application Platforms with Microsoft's Continuous Availability software. We're looking forward to hearing feedback from the Microsoft community and sharing this with our OEM customers," said Paul Vogt, Vice President, Application Platform Business Management, Xyratex. "We have a number of customers using the OneStor family as the basis of their product offering today, including Dell, IBM, HP and Network Appliance. We feel the Continuous Availability functionality will address new requirements within our customer base and create new opportunities with new partners."
