Lenovo announces new storage arrays for businesses

Lenovo has announced two new SAN offerings -- Lenovo Storage S2200 and S3200 storage arrays – for businesses. The arrays gives businesses simplified data management for 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. The 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.

The Lenovo Storage S2200 and S3200 deliver Intelligent Real-Time Tiering, which automatically moves frequently accessed data to higher performing drives every five seconds. With hybrid configurations and Intelligent Real-Time Tiering, 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, the company claimed.

Every S2200 and S3200 comes with Lenovo SAN Manager. This GUI provides advanced features Data Tiering; Thin Provisioning; SSD Read Caching; Rapid RAID Rebuild; Snapshot - provides point-in-time copies of live data, eliminating the need for restore and performance hits; and Storage Pooling – virtualizes storage across multiple drive types improving IO by up to 2.5x without impacting applications.

In addition to redundant power, hot-swappable fans and drives, Lenovo built these systems for 99.999 percent availability, multi-pathing, and in-chassis controller upgrades without the need for data migrations or extended downtime.
