Milwaukee County Transit System Selects Coraid EtherDrive(R) Storage

Coraid Ethernet SAN Technology Delivers Breakthrough Price-Performance Over Fibre Channel and iSCSI (March 27, 2012)

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- Coraid® Inc., a leading developer of Ethernet SAN solutions with more than 1,500 customers worldwide, today announced that the Milwaukee County Transit System has selected Coraid EtherDrive SRX storage with high-performance 15,000 RPM 600 GB SAS disk drives for its production Oracle® databases. The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) is the largest transit agency in Wisconsin and the primary transit provider for Milwaukee County. It ranks among the top 50 transit agencies in the United States.

Selected for high performance, reliability, efficiency and value, the EtherDrive storage appliances provide MCTS with a shared storage solution that eliminates the complexity of traditional SAN solutions. Using an innovative scale-out SAN architecture and standard Ethernet, Coraid EtherDrive storage arrays provide lower OPEX and faster-than-Fibre-Channel performance at commodity hardware economics. EtherDrive is ideally suited to dynamic high-performance computing, virtualization, video and cloud computing environments.

Coraid leverages standard Ethernet and the CorOS™ distributed-storage operating system to deliver higher performance than Fibre Channel at up to 1800 MB/s of throughput or nearly 200,000 IOPS per array using commodity hardware. EtherDrive scales to multiple petabytes with a flat Ethernet SAN topology and connectionless, massively parallel design. Deployment and configuration of EtherDrive arrays are simple; a user can configure and address new storage in under 60 seconds. The scale-out design also enables a Zero-Hour Support™ customer-service offering based on Coraid's disk-portability technology, which allows users to swap drives between arrays for upgrades, service reconfiguration, data transfers or disaster recovery on the fly.
