Intransa Inc, the global
provider of end-to-end native IP SAN solutions, is
experiencing a steep rise in demand for its IP SAN solutions
throughout the Asia-Pacific Region and India.
What is driving this demand
is the IP5000 systems' ability to deliver an
enterprise-class SAN environment at a fraction of the cost
and complexity of fibre channel SANs and its superior
performance and scalability over NAS.
According to Vinay
Khargonkar, assistant general manager IT, Larsen &
Toubro, Hazira Works, "Flexibility, easy manageability
and low TCO is what made the Intransa IP SAN solution an
attractive proposition for us. We can now easily service the
demand for additional storage by simply adding additional
storage or controller modules to the Ethernet network."
"Native IP SANs truly
represent the third wave of storage and will play a key role
in helping organizations implement new age services like
remote data replication, disaster recovery and
video-on-demand services," predicts Dr. Avi Katz,
president and chief executive officer, Intransa.
The Intransa IP SAN
solution is a modular, native to the network IP-based
block-storage (Storage Area Network) array from 2TB up to
48TB raw capacity. Intransa delivers the IP SAN with
enterprise class features in a cost effective, scalable, and
easy-to-setup network storage solution that costs pennies
per megabyte, the company said.
Peter Wang, founder and CTO,
Intransa, observed, "Our IP SAN solution delivers a
cost-effective, quickly deployable, and easily managed
networked storage environment that makes the benefits of
SANs practical for entry-level and mid-tier enterprise
applications and for expansion of high end ones. By
transforming the way networked storage systems are designed,
we have been able to extend the benefits of SAN technology
to customers who previously may not have deployed SAN
solutions due to their high cost and complexity."
IP SANs, according to
International Data Corporation, are expected to garner more
than 25 percent of the global storage market by 2007
