HP Updated: 2009-02-25 RSS

Imagine a single solution for your business that provides optimized NAS file serving, shared iSCSI storage for application servers, and built-in data protection capabilities. Now imagine that you don't need to be a storage expert to use it.

HP StorageWorks All-in-One Storage Systems are radically simple, integrated, and affordable solutions that enable you to manage, grow, and protect data in small- and medium-sized office environments. Designed to be deployed and managed by IT generalists, they deliver everything you need to decrease the costs of rapid data growth. The revolutionary All-in-One Storage Manager (ASM) interface automates storage tasks, masks complexity, and presents capacity in familiar application-centric terms. IT generalists can look like storage experts with tools to set up shared folders, iSCSI Target application storage, and backup/replication.

The AiO1200r is a high-density 2U rack-mount and easily expandable platform supporting both SATA and SAS drives.
