LOS GATOS, Calif., June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Hifn(TM) (Nasdaq: HIFN), the catalyst behind storage and networking innovation, will feature the public debut of its storage reference design in collaboration with Freescale Semiconductor at the Freescale Technology Forum, June 16-19 at the JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Conference Centers in Orlando, FL.
The reference design is the first solution to emerge from the previously announced Hifn-Freescale strategic development partnership and combines Hifn's Express DR data reduction cards with Freescale's high-performance, low-power MPC8641D PowerQUICC(R) dual-core processor to provide storage OEMs, ODMs and systems integrators with a storage-optimized, rapid go-to-market platform for virtual tape libraries, disk-to-disk backup and other critical storage applications. Cofio Software is the first OEM to adopt the Hifn-Freescale design for its ViStor Virtual Tape Library.
The Hifn Express DR Series acceleration cards are the industry's first enterprise-class hardware-advantaged data reduction accelerators. The Express DR series delivers unprecedented hardware-offload performance with high reliability and intelligent data reduction features.
Designed to help IT professionals offset the costs of the exponential growth in business data, the Express DR Series works with any type of data, any type of data storage, including file-based storage with NAS and block-level storage with iSCSI, and any type of network and can accelerate any type of data reduction application, including Continuous Data Protection (CDP), Virtual Tape Libraries (VTL), Content Addressable Storage (CAS), and data archive, backup and snapshot systems. The newest additions to the Express DR product line, the Express DR 250 and DR255 cards, are the industry's first hardware-accelerated data deduplication cards and also combine industry-standard LZS data compression and AES256 data encryption in a single PCI card.
