Maxtronic unveils PCIe SAN solution targeting video industry
Press release, August 5; Meiling Chen, DIGITIMES [Friday 7 August 2009]

Maxtronic's ExaSAN solution is built upon an architecture to provide maximum flexibility and speed. It features higher performance through utilizing the PCI Express (PCIe) x4/ x8 bus and lowers cost over traditional fiber SANs targeting the video market, the company claimed. The ExaSAN family includes RAID storage devices, ExaSAN host /device SAN switches, PCIe HBAs, cabling and accessories. Without components from third-party providers, Maxtronic is able to design, verify and produce every component in the ExaSAN.

Maxtronic ExaSAN solutions use a native PCI Express protocol to avoid protocol codec/decode translations and reduce any unnecessary overhead, the company claimed. In addition, the data and commands are exchanged in a more efficiency way by directing memory access or DMA between the system memory and buffer memory on the controller, according to the company.

ExaSAN technology supports multiple host connections, multiple storage connections and high scalability. It's fully compatible with Mac Pro, Mac OS X Server, Windows and PC servers. The Maxtronic ExaSAN not only works seamlessly with Apple Xsan 2 but also improves performance and reliability of the application, Maxtronic claimed. The high-performance ExaSAN can support multiple uncompressed high-definition video streams with no frame drops, and provide large and scalable capacity demands for high definition video in the media broadcasting or movie industries with multi-user support.
