Silicon Image Expands SteelVine Storage Footprint

via PRNewswire

Capable of supporting up to 2.5 terabytes of storage, the SiI 4726 delivers over 230 megabytes per second of input/output throughput; supports RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 10, concatenation, and JBOD (Port Multiplier) configurations; and is capable of enabling multiple RAID partitions on singlehard drives, giving the OEM the flexibility to configure the processor to meet varying combinations of capacity, performance and data protection.

As with all SteelVine solutions, the SiI 4726 works with any SATA-compliant host port -- no driver, BIOS extension, or host software is required -- making the SiI 4726 completely operating system independent. This provides storage system manufacturers the ability to easily target devices with embedded operating systems such as personal video recorders (PVRs), medical equipment, and surveillance systems, as well as any PC or device that runs a commercial operating system such as Windows, Linux or MAC OS X.

At the CES show this week in Las Vegas , early adopters will be displaying systems based on the SiI 4726 SteelVine Storage Processor in Silicon Image's suite at Harrah's Las Vegas .

Pricing and Availability

The SiI 4726 is available immediately, and is priced at $27.00 in 5K quantities.
