COLUMBIA, MD, Oct. 30, 2006 -- Digi-Data Corporation, a leading manufacturer of clustered RAID controllers for utility storage, data protection, and archive markets, today announces the T-3000 Controller, a 4 Gb fibre channel RAID disk system. Designed to provide enterprise level performance at midrange pricing, the T-3000 provides a suite of easy-to-use integrated software utilities. The T-3000 simplifies storage for a range of applications, from enterprise database to video editing.

“The T-3000 reduces both complexity and cost of integrating multiple packaging, while maintaining Digi-Data’s standards for high-quality, scalable storage solutions,” says Dennis Cindrich, president of Digi-Data. “Virtualizaton makes storage and access a more efficient process. With its easy-to-use GUI and expandable capacity, the T-3000 makes virtualization work.”

The T-3000 family offers fibre channel or SATA disk drives, and can be configured with 4 Gb fibre channel, iSCSI or a mix of both to address storage and disaster recovery configurations. It is a versatile building block that spans from entry level storage networking to high performance access to hundreds of terabytes of storage.

The T-3000 offers up to 1.6 GB/s host and disk bandwidth and RAID6 dedicated parity engines. The T-3000 package comes with one or two controllers, full 4 Gb fibre (host side and disk side) and up to 240 drives, using expansion chassis (T-3000exp).
