Doing more siCluster quotes per day than I thought I would be at this stage. Each unit in the JackRabbit JR4 based siCluster sustains well over 2GB/s to and from disk for TB sized files. Some of the benchmarks we’ve seen suggest strongly that ‘competitive’ solutions require many more of their systems to achieve bandwidth and application performance parity, which turns the already unfavorable price performance comparison into a rout.
We are hearing from customers deploying JackRabbit units in ways we didn’t originally intend, now indicating that they scale quite a bit better than their modern (insert enterprise NAS vendors here) NAS system.
DeltaV is hitting a good stride. We are seeing strong and growing interest, and people leveraging them across wider swaths of application than we originally scoped.
We are adding agents and resellers, and we should be announcing a few new reseller partnerships soon. Including a nice one in the Dallas TX area (woot!).
