The most affordable price in the market. The first offer of Japan-made Scale-Out NAS, which has allowed for high-speed computing of big amounts of data like video pictures. Available for one-fourth offering price of existing products.
Creationline, Inc., providing Cloud Integration Services, will be offering the first Japan-made Scale-Out NAS, Amage, with a low price from Monday the 19th of August, 2013.
In order to administer traditional NAS, engineers have to divide volumes. Whereas traditional NAS has large protective and unused areas, Scale-Out NAS can be administered by one single volume with high capacity-use efficiency. And, Scale-Out NAS allows for storage expansion while customers continue receiving its services. With a data distribution feature, high-speed computing has been made possible.
[ Technical Differences between Traditional NAS and Scale-Out NAS ]
Unfortunately, products provided in the market of Scale-Out NAS cost nearly five million yen to eight million yen, and they are meant only for big enterprise. There hasn’t existed a product lineup for small and medium-sized enterprise. Because of that business background, Creationline has offered to develop and provide Amege as an affordable Scale-Out NAS for small and medium-size enterprise.
Amage is equipped with many excellent features, one of which is high expandability. The storage capacity can be expanded without stopping any services by adding additional nodes. And, high availability has also been made possible by distributing all the data that Scale-Out NAS possesses into a minimum of three nodes. Even when one of the nodes corrupts, Scale-Out NAS keeps on providing stable services (or operation). Also, Scale-Out NAS is equipped with end-user friendly interfaces and a feature called Shin-Provisioning (refer to table 1), which is included in all normal Scale-Out NAS.
Since it has been developed in Japan, quick support for technical inquiries is guaranteed. We offer the products with roughly one-fourth sales price of other existing products. The price for each package is as follows:
*1,980,000 yen for a package of three machines of 1 U type (Effective Capacity: 1 TB)
*1,300,000 yen for a package of three machines of Tower type (Effective Capacity: 1 TB)
Scale-out NAS is specialized for keeping large file data and is affordable especially for Small and medium-sized companies that have needs to keep big amounts of data such as movies for video site, video pictures of surveillance cameras, and large log files. We, Creatonline, expect sales of a hundred million yen for the initial year. Please refer to /amage/en/ for further details about services.
