Unified data storage appliance company IceWEB (IWEB) introduced a new line of all Solid State Unified Storage Products last week called the Ice Platform.
The new IceWEB SSD models replace the traditional spindle-type hard drives with solid state drives across the IceWEB line. New solid state appliances, called IceWEB ERX (environmentally responsible acceleration) provide improved IO performance, as well as minimizing heat generation and power consumption.
“Our new ERX platforms deliver all the IceWEB unified storage award-winning reliability, stability and an enterprise feature-set —key operational metrics for unified storage purchasers—while dramatically enhancing performance through our unique implementations of solid state technology,” said Gaurang Mehta, CTO of IceWEB. “They are faster, consume less power, generate less heat, and offer IO performance levels exceeding 100K IOPS and 1.2 GB/s. For clients, the Total Cost of Ownership characteristics are greatly enhanced while the environmental impact is significantly minimized.”
Company CEO Rob Howe shared his enthusiasm and optimism in the fiscal year end 10-K last year, about 2013 bringing new alliances, markets, products and new sales segments that will “bear considerable fruit for the business.”
IceWEB added a third party endorsement recently from 451 Research, as it issued a report on the IceWEB’s new Cloud Services Unit. IceWEB’s private cloud strategy addresses the on premises private cloud, hosted private cloud and the on premises cloud connecting to third party public clouds. The report indicates that IceWEB will provide an end-to-end integrated cloud storage offering that comprises all of the necessary hardware and software for backend and frontend management.
