Iomega, a global leader in data protection, today announced the worldwide availability this month of the new Iomega StorCenter px12-450r Network Storage Array, multi-protocol networked data storage for small and medium business, remote office/branch office installations and distributed enterprises. The StorCenter px12-450r features the new Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v2 Product Family, 8GB RAM, improved user supportability and the option of 4TB hard disk drives (HDD). Additionally, the StorCenter px12-450r utilizes the latest version of the EMC LifeLine software, an advanced operating system that makes EMC's enterprise class expertise and cloud capabilities available to a broad range of users.



The new StorCenter px12-450r Network Storage Array is designed for advanced functions including deduplication, VDI, database and storage-based applications. Examples of emerging applications include video management systems (VMS) for surveillance and McAfee VirusScan Enterprise running natively on the storage.

"The launch of the new StorCenter px12-450r continues Iomega's expansion of its high performance PX series NAS product line to meet the storage solution needs of our growing SMB customers," said Mike Nikzad, Chief Operating Officer, Iomega Corporation. "Designed with the latest Intel processing architecture at its core, Iomega is among the first to market with the highest performance at the best value available in its class. Built with scalable server class storage, the StorCenter px12-450r is also designed to support today's cloud and virtualization storage demands while having enough available headroom to meet the future storage and application growth opportunities."

"As an active beta tester and early user of the new Iomega StorCenter px12-450r, we have been very impressed with the feature set, high performance and ease-of-use of Iomega's new StorCenter px12-450r," said Bob Hoefsloot, CEO of Real Solutions Haarlem, a premier business reseller based in the Netherlands. "Our customers will appreciate the dependability and scalability of the StorCenter px12-450r, as well as the breadth of data sharing and data protection capabilities and the latest in cloud and virtualization expertise that gives this network storage array the versatility required by so many forward-thinking, growing businesses today. The new px12-450r will be a featured solution in the affordable high-end network storage array offerings that Real Solutions Haarlem brings to our SMB and distributed enterprise customers."

"At TIG, our focus is on providing fully-featured IT solutions to SMBs, mid-size and Fortune 1000 corporations, as well as federal, state and local government entities," said Lutz Vomberg, Storage Practice Director for the Technology Integration Group (TIG), a long-standing North American reseller based in San Diego and a member of Iomega's ioclub Premier Plus reseller program. "Our clients look to us for solid, dependable data management solutions that can be scaled to meet their needs as their business and technology needs grow over time. We have experienced good success with Iomega's previous generation of the px12 network storage array among a broad spectrum of our clients, so we're looking forward to the same success as we present the increased capabilities of the next generation of the px12 rackmount solution to our clients."

Anatomy of the new Iomega StorCenter px12-450r Network Storage Array
Integral to the StorCenter px12-450r is the new low-power Intel Xeon Processor E3-1265L v2, coupled with 8GB memory. The multicore processor excels at multi-threaded storage workloads like multi-LUN iSCSI and multi-client virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). The 8GB memory assists those workloads and easily supports memory-intensive tasks like the Avamar source-based deduplicating agent, included with all Iomega StorCenter PX series storage products.

The new StorCenter px12-450r is a ground-up redesign of Iomega's previous top-of-the-line model, the StorCenter px12-350r. The StorCenter px12-450r is available in diskless and partially populated configurations (diskless version available in international markets only), enabling users to start small in terms of storage capacity, or provide their own HDDs and grow as workloads and storage capacity dictate. The px12-450r is qualified with a broad range of 1TB, 2TB and 3TB consumer hard drives and Server Class Series HDDs, as well as 4TB HDDs, which are newly available with the px12-450r. All product configurations and expansion drives for the px12-450r available from Iomega include Server Class SATA drives for the highest reliability.

The new px12-450r also supports solid state drives (SSDs), ideal for large amounts of small block random I/O workloads such as virtualization and database. The px12-450r expands on the px12-350r's user serviceability with a new mechanical design that includes a replaceable processor by removing just two thumbscrews. To expand the storage capacity, all product configurations include disk drive trays so users can add HDDs.

One of the key advantages of adopting leading edge technology like the new Intel Xeon Processor is that the StorCenter px12-450r can handle advanced workloads to increase the lifespan of the network storage array for end users. The multicore processor and 8GB memory are ready for the next generation of storage-based applications. The px12-450r includes 2 PCIe slots to further expand the px12-450r's capabilities, particularly by adding I/O connectivity, such as 10GbE when it becomes widely available.

Software Enhancements
The StorCenter px12-450r features two software enhancements that are well matched to its leading edge hardware complex. The px12-450r is the industry's only sub $10K (IDC price bands 1&2) storage array to run the McAfee VirusScan Enterprise product natively on the storage. Also the px12-450r can run Linux applications created with Iomega's LifeLine™ Software Development Kit (SDK).

McAfee VirusScan Enterprise is an enterprise-class endpoint security product which runs natively on the px12-450r, no external server required. Enterprise-class threat scanning means 1) threat identification and remediation through McAfee's global network and reach and 2) consistent features (e.g., scanning options) and behavior (e.g., management and reporting) with the rest of McAfee's VirusScan family. McAfee VirusScan will be included on all Iomega PX series network storage products when it becomes available.
