“Storage demands are growing at an alarming rate, largely due to the amount of data generated by databases, rich media, business applications and file shares. The ES4600 series was developed in an effort to help IT managers meet and exceed those demands” said Daniel Tai, Director of Product Development. “Enhance Technology is recognized and trusted worldwide for providing innovative solutions that help our customers apply the right storage technologies at a very competitive price-point, resulting in significant savings for their enterprise” noted Tai. “The features, density and service levels of the ULTRASTOR ES4600 align well with the changing face of IT. The drive towards hardware consolidation, virtualization and the cloud is creating a new breed of IT manager with a completely different set of expectations. Having the ability to deliver up to a petabyte of storage in just a few rack spaces places Enhance Technology in a very unique position.”
