Iomega builds new StorCenter array

Written by Nick Farrell



Full of Ivy Bridge Goodness


The makers of the Jaz drive have merged their midrange and SMB storeage offerings based around Intel's Ivy Bridge.

The Iomega StorCenter array that is the first of its kind to put Intel's new Xeon E3-1200 V2 chips with its 3D transistors under the bonnet. The Xeon processors have more workload capacity, and so Intel is able to put more functionality directly into the silicon, saving more computing power for the software applications.  This means things like McAfee security software.

A Iomega spokesman said that EMC and Intel have been business partners for a long time and EMC owns Iomega, Intel owns McAfee. So it's a natural that we'd be the first to incorporate the security functionality into Iomega's storage. The collaboration with McAfee brings a new, hardware-defined protection layer that allows Iomega to become the first SMB network storage maker to run McAfee VirusScan Enterprise natively on network devices. 

The StorCenter array is equipped with 8GB of RAM, is designed for advanced business computing functions, such as deduplication, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and most storage-based applications. It has a 12-bay, 2U network storage system plug-in ready for use with 10Gbit Ethernet networks and the upcoming 4TB disk drives. Pricing starts at $5,499.99.
