Assurance, AIC Launch Unified Storage On Intel Xeon E5-2600 Processor
Assurance Storage, a developer of tiered storage software, and AIC, an OEM/ODM server manufacturer, are working together to develop the Guardian Storage Server line based on Intel's new Xeon E5-2600 processors.
Assurance said the new processors offer the performance needed to support RAID hardware acceleration as well as software optimization without the need to use PCIe slots in the server, giving solution providers the opportunity to use those slots to add solid state storage cards.
Assurance is delivering these systems to solution providers and ISVs for evaluation and customer deployment. Solution providers can add their own brand to the systems if desired.
