Networked Storage: Coraid Introduces Four Disk SATA EtherDrive
New 1U Size Delivers Simple, Cost-effective, Distributed Network Storage

Coraid, developer the open ATA-over-Ethernet (AoE) protocol which is used by its EtherDrive storage products, announced today that its SATA line features a 1U, four disk storage appliance to complement its existing 3U shelf for SATA disks.

The new 1U size, says the company, meets the demand for "simple, cost effective, distributed network storage throughout the facility." RAID levels 0, 1, 5, and 10 can be configured in the new appliance, providing customers with even greater value and fault tolerance.

Coraid’s new 1U appliance features 4 hot swap drive bays which accommodate user installed standard SATA disk drives of any size and a dual GigE interface. Fully populated drive bays using 400 GB disk drives provide 1.6 TB of storage.

EtherDrive storage appliances use the ATA over Ethernet (AoE) protocol. EtherDrive Storage appears to servers on the network as locally attached disks.

The new 1U SATA product provides extreme scalability and storage array performance is fast and reliable on account of the dual GigE connections. A single chassis can provide 200MB/sec. of storage access throughput and because the AoE protocol is so efficient, any host can saturate its Ethernet connections to the storage and still have CPU cycles left for the server’s main applications.
