Pillar Data Systems Gives Customers More Control over Disaster Recovery, Storage Performance and Efficiency

Pillar Data Systems, San Jose, Calif., April 26, 2010 -- Pillar Data Systems today delivered several new features that increase the performance, efficiency and ease of management for its award-winning Pillar Axiom storage system. These new additions build on the Axiom's unique Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities and ensure greater flexibility and reliability for storage administrators.

Business has demanded greater resilience to outages and enhanced data protection for Disaster Recovery with limited budgets. Pressure to consolidate multiple applications on fewer infrastructure resources and provide better SLAs add to those demands. Since 2001, Pillar has been the only company to offer a truly unified storage platform that can deliver multiple tiers of storage for SAN, NAS and iSCSI all from a single footprint.

New Product Features

AxiomONE Replication: Native array-based data protection for both SAN and NAS for the Pillar Axiom product platform. Pillar's AxiomONE Replication extends its current replication offerings with easy to use policy-based Application-Aware profiles to give more choice for data protection for customers of all sizes.

QoS within Storage Class: Each storage media type (FC, SSD, SATA) can now have all QoS priority bands operational within a respective class for more granular use of Pillar's patented QoS. The QoS adjusts priority, CPU, cache and network resources - all extremely effective even with SSD in a storage pool. While statistical short stroking is one of the tools used to optimize SATA performance, it is only one tool used by the Axiom to extract every drop of performance from the capacity pool.

AxiomONE Pre-emptive Copy: New adaptive learning RAS feature senses "suspect" drives in the storage pool and copies data to a spare drive before calling for a replacement. The Pre-emptive Copy feature further shortens Pillar's industry-leading drive rebuild times by doing the bulk of the work before a failure occurs, using a simple copy instead of a rebuild of the drive contents.

Application-Aware QoS Migration: Gives the administrator the ability to balance performance and cost by choosing the correct storage configuration and priority for varying business needs; as opposed to Automated Tiering which takes that control away from the administrators.
