Hanover, Germany (March 10, 2013) - Boston Limited, now in its 20th year as distribution partner for Super Micro Computer (NASDAQ: SMCI), is proud to unveil a new, end-to-end 12Gb/s SAS 3.0 storage solution that features LSI® MegaRAID® technology and the LSI 12Gb/s SAS Expander with DataBolt™ bandwidth optimiser. Visit stand #D80, Hall 15 at CeBIT 2014 for more details.

The Boston Igloo 2U-16T-Stor is a storage server that fully utilises SAS 3.0 technology to deliver double the performance of the previous generation SAS 6Gbit/s interconnect. Ideal for businesses looking to balance the management of big data with the performance levels required of I/O intensive applications, the Boston Igloo 2U-16T-Stor combines LSI MegaRAID technology, LSI DataBolt bandwidth optimisation, Supermicro hardware and 24 high performance Western Digital XE 900GB 2.5" hard drives to create an enterprise-class platform for enterprise datacentre, cloud, virtualised server and OLTP environments.

With the inclusion of LSI's latest generation of 12Gb/s SAS controller, the Igloo 2U-16T-Stor can provide the data protection and performance demanded by both applications and end users. The LSI MegaRAID SAS 9361-4i 12Gb/s SAS and SATA RAID controller card addresses the demands of applications and end users by delivering proven performance and RAID data protection for a range of server storage applications. In addition the Igloo 2U-16T-Stor is pre-installed with Windows Server 2012 R2, enabling users to deploy and manage a multi-tenant cloud infrastructure within a flexible IT environment.

Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston Limited, says "Boston is delighted to launch our latest 12Gb/s SAS 3.0 solution, in partnership with LSI and Supermicro, that doubles the acceleration in storage performance for I/O intensive applications."

"With the constantly increasing demand for faster data access, problems caused by IO bottlenecks can seriously impact the chances of a business achieving its goals. Leveraging SAS 3.0 can help dramatically lower latency, improve performance and remove data bottlenecks that were previously unavoidable with existing technology."

"As data traffic and consumption continues to grow, the hardware infrastructure within today's datacentre needs to provide new levels of performance, reliability and scalability. Our portfolio of 12Gb/s MegaRAID SAS controllers and expanders delivers application accelerating performance, enhanced data protection and reduced TCO for the most demanding datacentres. We are delighted to be demonstrating these capabilities together with Boston at CeBIT, " said Thomas Pavel, EMEA Director, Channel Sales, LSI.
