Page 1 of 1
Adaptec, Inc. today introduced the DuraStor family of entry-level external storage subsystems targeted at mid-sized companies with scalable storage requirements.
The first solution in the DuraStor family is a 3U SCSI external RAID subsystem. Called the Adaptec DuraStor 6220SS, it combines a 1U RAID appliance and a 2U storage enclosure with 12 drive bays. For additional flexibility, resellers can select from pre-approved disk drives that are openly available on the market.
According to Adaptec, service is a key component of the DuraStor offering. The DuraStor storage subsystem includes a standard, one-year, on-site service plan plus a three-year limited warranty. Upgraded, three-year service programs are also available. Resellers are are provided with training and demand generation programs.
The DuraStor 6220SS SCSI external RAID subsystem will ship to selected distributors and resellers in the United States within 30 days at an MSRP beginning at $7,999. Priced separately the MSRP for the DuraStor 312R storage enclosure is $3,499. Adaptec said a Fibre Channel subsystem will ship in November 2001 and will be priced separately.
