The Unified Storage platform demonstration combines key storage applications such as high-performance de-duplication, continuous data protection, back-up and secure distributed file services (DFS) all based on an Intel(R) 5100 MCH Chipset platform. The power of Intel architecture enables the Unified Storage Platform to support multiple storage applications on one platform. The purpose of a Unified Storage Platform is to eliminate the need for multiple single function storage devices thus freeing up space in the data center, reducing power consumption and cooling requirements, simplifying management, and significantly reducing total cost of ownership. The Unified Storage Platform as a solution is ideal for small- to medium-sized enterprises, and remote and distributed offices, as it provides Enterprise-class storage capabilities in an easy-to-manage, high-performance platform.

The Unified Storage demonstration combines key enabling Intel technology as well as Hifn's Applied Services Processors and Express family of PCIe based cards. By supporting Intel(R) QuickAssist Technology, Hifn's family of card accelerators provides system vendors using Intel(R) architecture with significantly improved time to market advantages. The demonstration also utilizes the power of an Intel 5100 MCH Chipset platform, which features Intel(R) quad-core processors, Intel(R) Virtualization Technology (Intel(R) VT), Intel(R) I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel(R) I/OAT) and high-performance PCIe*. Hifn's Applied Services Processors (ASPs) and Express family of cards off-load the computational intensive functions of encryption, compression, and hashing for security, and data-reduction and -de-duplication features. The continuous data protection and back up functions are supported by Microsoft's DPM* and Symantec's NetBackup* respectively.

"We are showing a new storage platform that is enabled through the processing power of Intel architecture and the purpose-built, hardware-advantaged capabilities from Hifn," said Russell Dietz, VP and CTO at Hifn. "This demonstration is an example of how our support for the Intel(R) QuickAssist Technology initiative brings together complementary technology for the benefit of innovation."

"The Unified Storage Platform demonstration is a good example of reducing space in storage applications by utilizing Intel(R) architecture," said Troy Smith, director of marketing, Intel Embedded and Communications Alliance. "Being a member of the Embedded and Communications Alliance, which brings together market-leading technologies and third party solutions using Intel(R) architecture, enables Hifn to offer innovated solutions to meet market requirements."

Hifn also plans to make additional information regarding the Unified Storage Platform demonstration available in the Intel ECA solutions directory following IDF.
