Promise Technology debuts VTrak D5000 Series unified storage system

Promise Technology has announced Thursday the VTrak D5000 Series Unified Storage System that delivers enhanced scalability, flexibility and affordability for the mid-tier, while simultaneously minimizing the total cost of ownership.

The Promise VTrak D5000 features an integrated combination of high-performance hardware, adaptive storage software, flexible protocols and application-dependent front and backend connectivity. It also simplifies storage environments by consolidating SAN and/ or NAS clients on the same storage solution needing FC & iSCSI connections.

The storage system also includes advanced storage services such as snapshot, online capacity expansion, flash cache, thin/thick clones and thin/thick volumes. It also unleashes the power of cache which gives users the option to add flash cache for read and write acceleration. The proprietary Promise Technology data caching automatically promotes hot data to cache in real time, so that users get the full benefit of flash performance.

The VTrak D5000 also consolidates infrastructure to massively scale up to 512 drives; features flexible 10GbE and optional 8/16G FC, with 6G SAS/SATA and 12G SAS interfaces; and accelerates enterprise applications by reducing latency and speed-up operations with up to 50 percent higher performance.

“The VTrak D5000 further expands our VTrak series enterprise-class product portfolio by providing valuable services and features that appeal to a wider market in general IT infrastructure, virtualized and unstructured data applications,” said Vijay Char, president, Promise Technology. “We’re delivering a Unified Storage solution with Data Services optimized for high bandwidth and low latency- an ideal storage platform for mid-tier IT applications, surveillance, backup and running multiple mixed workloads.”

The VTrak D5000 Series with iSCSI and NAS configurations will be available shortly in North America through Promise’s network of resellers, with FC configurations scheduled to ship in Fall 2018. All-inclusive pricing encompasses hardware, software and three years of Next Business Day service (USA & CA only) to make determining the cost simple and predictable.

The VTrak D5000 series comes in four models D5300/D5320 (2RU), D5600 (3RU), and D5800 (4RU) giving users the flexibility on form factor.
