Lenovo — at Lenovo Tech World — announced two new SAN offerings: Lenovo Storage S2200 and S3200 storage arrays at an affordable entry-level price point.
Both storage solutions will be available from June 2015. Lenovo is yet to announce the price of Storage S2200 and S3200 storage arrays.
The Lenovo Storage S2200 and S3200 can be used for a variety of applications, ranging from general purpose web serving and data management/analytics that require high IOPs, to video surveillance and streaming workloads that need high throughput.
These storage arrays offer dual and single controllers in 2U-12 and 24 drive configurations.
Lenovo said S2200 supports up to 96 drives and the S3200 supports up to 192 drives to support storage growth. The S2200 and S3200 support Fibre Channel, iSCSI and SAS, with the S3200 supporting multi-protocol connectivity that can work with Fibre Channel and iSCSI at the same time.
Lenovo Storage S2200 and S3200 deliver Intelligent Real-Time Tiering, which automatically moves frequently accessed data to higher performing drives every five seconds, significantly increasing storage performance. The Lenovo Storage S3200 can provide near All-Flash-Array (AFA) performance for up to 120,000 IOPS at a fraction of the cost of today’s Flash only systems.
