New Compression Tool Triples Network Storage

Storwize has developed a new range of in-line data compression appliances which it claimed can compress files at up to 500MB/s, doubling or even tripling the effective capacity of a NAS array.

The three new systems are 64-bit, meaning they can use far more memory than the company's previous models. That increases their performance, as the compression technology is memory-reliant, said Jon Ash, Storwize's sales VP.

The story is too old to be commented.
