Caen Engineering Releases SATA II RAID Storage Arrays

Caen Engineering, manufacturers and resellers of high-quality data storage appliances, announced today that it is shipping four new models of the Comet SATA II RAID system.

Orange, CA (PRWEB) April 9, 2005 -- Caen Engineering, manufacturers and resellers of high-quality data storage appliances, announced today that it is shipping four new models of the Comet SATA II RAID system. These new SATA II RAID arrays feature ASIC 266 architecture, which offers unprecedented read/write performance. The Comet SATA II is available in eight, twelve, and sixteen-bay models. The ultra low-profile Comet SATA II systems are capable of storing up to 64 Terabytes of data in the highest density for 3.5” drives available today.

“The SATA II is amazingly fast. There’s nothing else like it on the market today. It marks a new record on data throughput for RAID systems,” said Martin Calderwood, VP of Operations for Caen Engineering.

Each Caen controller offers up to 1GB cache memory, an IBM PowerPC processor, an Ethernet LAN port, and one RS232 port for out-of-band management. Caen’s newest RAID engine, the Caen-ASIC-266DDR, features a dual PCI-X bus design and supports double data rate (DDR) memory, resulting in more than double the performance of older models.

SATA-II drives are slated for release in early Summer 2005, but the Comet SATA II is backward compatible to work with SATA I drives.
