LSI Announces Syncro CS Availability
LSI has announced the availability of its Syncro CS which is a robust, cost-effective, and easy to deploy high availability storage solution for small and medium-sized businesses. Syncro CS brings shared storage and storage controller failover into DAS environments at a fraction of the cost. Additionally, it drastically reduces the complexity of traditional high availability (HA) solutions. Built on LSI MegaRAID technology, Syncro CS solutions use two controller cards to allow system administrators to build their highly available, shared DAS solution. Syncro CS does this by supporting two deployment models.
Syncro CS 9286-8e provides shared storage clustering using two volume servers and an off-the-shelf JBOD. This affordable HA solution brings shared storage and controller failover to DAS environments. Syncro CS 9271-8i enables OEMs and system builders to use Syncro CS controllers to build cost-effective two-node Cluster-in-a Box (CiB) systems and deliver HA in a single self-contained unit.
Syncro CS is currently shipping to the worldwide distribution network and OEMs.
