Dot Hill Systems Corp recently announced that they have patented a new method for Serial Attached SCSI-based storage systems. This marks the 90th patent for the company and has been incorporated into the AssuredSAN 3000 series of arrays.
The new method developed by Dot Hill allows users to have better availability and reliability of data. In addition, storage arrays will attempt to lower connection speeds on transfers with any link errors, which will prevent the connection from quitting or timing out. According to Dot Hill, data is still accessible even with link errors.
“The slightest interruption to data can be deadly for many businesses. Backed by a growing portfolio of patented technologies, Dot Hill AssuredSAN storage solutions achieve 99.999 percent availability so organizations can rest assured they have round-the-clock access to their data,” said Ken Day, CTO, Dot Hill.“This latest innovation uses the inherent capabilities of SAS technology to produce higher availability in storage systems, supporting Dot Hill’s relentless pursuit of a better customer experience.
