Company officials said that the performance is the result of quad 8Gb Fiber Channel interface, 6Gb iSCSI backplanes and expansion ports and chipset.
"With this enhanced array, Storage Engine continues to deliver exceptional performance, modularity, interoperability and great value to all enterprises," said Gregg Azcuy, president at Storage Engine.
