June 14, 2012 - PRLog -- Bracknell, London, June 14, 2012 – LSI Corporation  has announced that it has begun sampling, to select server manufacturers, its high-availability direct-attached storage (HA-DAS) solutions for Microsoft Windows® Server platforms. LSI® HA-DAS solutions are designed to provide small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) and cloud datacentre customers with increased application availability and uptime while decreasing the complexity and costs of shared storage based on existing high-availability solutions.

LSI HA-DAS solutions were recently featured at Microsoft’s TechEd Technical Learning Center, which marked the first time that a group of companies worked together to show HA-DAS in a Cluster-in-a-Box (CiB) environment. This configuration is designed to:

•   Provide continuous, high-availability servers and storage for critical business applications
•   Fill the gap between limited single-node servers and enterprise-level scale-out servers
•   Offer multiple server nodes and storage in a customisable, easy-to-deploy chassis  

“The massive growth in data and the need for continuous uptime have increased the need for high-availability server systems,” said Thomas Pfenning, general manager, Server Storage and Availability, Microsoft. “Together, LSI HA-DAS solutions and Windows Server can provide the necessary availability and uptime benefits found in traditional high-availablity systems, while also being easier to manage and more cost-effective.”

The CiB solution at TechEd used LSI HA-DAS technology, and MegaRAID® SAS  controllers featured in a series of public demonstrations, each focused on a unique aspect of the HA-DAS solution.

LSI will be participating at TechEd Europe which takes place 26-29 June at the RAI in Amsterdam.

LSI HA-DAS solutions are expected to be generally available in the fourth quarter of 2012. Visit
