Open Storage RAID systems

Toronto, Ont.-based Open Storage Solutions Inc.’s new Omega family of RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) data storage systems will offer throughputs from 80MBps to 100MBps to the host Computer. The Omega line is suited for businesses such as video production houses and multimedia houses that require versatile, largely expandable storage, but not excessive costs. The Omega’s Web-based management feature allows for simple, point-and-shoot configuring of the RAID controller through any conventional Web browser. The Omega family includes models with single (Omega UX) and dual (Omega SX 2) Ultra2 SCSI controllers as well as a Fibre Channel unit (Omega FX), which boasts the Omega family’s highest performance, making it ideal for a small SAN (Storage Area Network). All RAID units are equipped with the Omega Personality Cube, which incorporates a 10Base-T network port and automatic self-sensing termination using VHDCI SCSI connectors. According to Open Storage, these SCSI connectors help avoid the trouble many users have in properly terminating the SCSI chain. Open Storage Solutions can be reached at
