StorageSafe™ Ushers in Era of High Performance Security for Flash and Hard Disk Type Storage on USB and IEEE 1394 Buses

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 8, 2005

Modern Solutions, Inc. announced today the release of StorageSafe the world’s first and only Windows® 2000 and XP compatible product to incorporate transparent device encryption, guards against 180,000+ common passwords, and secure file and device erase.

“Our clients came to us with a new problem, they had all this value being stored on unprotected, or weakly protected storage devices that can be easily lost or stolen,” said Bryan Born, CTO. “We quickly discovered common and uncompromising demands: 1) genuine security; 2) solid reliability, and; 3) little or no reduction in productivity,” continued Born.

After the device password is entered, the 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard, the 512-bit Secure Hash Algorithm, and others from our time tested media security library go to work, silently. There is no noticeable impact on bandwidth, even with older generation CPUs. An extensible system instantly checks for and limits the use of more than 180,000 common (easy to guess) passwords. Secure file and device erase that exceeds DoD Standards can remove sensitive files from unwanted locations.

As another industry first, the deprotect routines are fully interrupt tolerant. This is especially important given that the product is targeted at devices that can be detached at any time.

StorageSafe is licensed by CPU, not by device. Therefore, it cost effectively provides a unified security interface to your entire inventory of USB/IEEE 1394 storage devices.

The single unit price is $ 24.99; multi-unit pricing and site licensing are available. The fully functional product can be downloaded now for sale or risk-free thirty-day evaluation at:

“With our end-user driven design, comprehensive testing, and continuous quality improvement, we expect customer satisfaction to be very high,” concluded Born.

Coraid Announces SATA EtherDrive Storage

San Clemente, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2005

The refined chassis design includes 15 hot swap drive bays which accommodate standard SATA disk drives. The new shelf offers a dual GigE Interface, redundant hot swap power modules and fans. Fully populated drive bays using 400 GB disk drives yield 6 TB of storage, but using 500 GB drives, the new Coraid shelf provides an impressive 7.5 TB of storage.

This ultra reliable storage appliance uses the AoE (ATA over Ethernet) protocol, the simplest, most efficient, and lowest cost means for networked storage. Using Ethernet connections, EtherDrive Storage Blades appear to servers on the network as locally attached disks. EtherDrive Storage can easily be assembled into large RAID sets and storage volumes.

Like Coraid’s PATA product, the new SATA platform provides extreme scalability. Exceeding storage capacity proves nearly impossible as storage arrays are limited only by physical rack space. The SATA EtherDrive shelf has dual GigE connections, so storage array performance is fast and reliable. A single shelf can provide 200MB/sec. of storage access throughput and because the AoE protocol is so simple, almost any host can saturate its Ethernet connections to the storage and still have CPU cycles left for the servers main applications.

EtherDrive Storage is less expensive than any other networked storage. Traditional fibre channel SAN’s are very expensive and can prove cost prohibitive for many companies. Fibre channel requires a large footprint, expensive fibre channel switches and complicated management software. iSCSI is burdened with the processing of TCP/IP, creating bottlenecks. The price of the new SATA EtherDrive Storage is only $ 3,995 Using 400 GB SATA disk drives at their current price, a complete 6 TB shared storage solution can now be assembled for $ 1.32/GB.

About Coraid

Coraid designs and manufactures innovative networked storage appliances. The “power of simple” makes our storage products affordable. Coraid developed the open ATA-over-Ethernet (AoE) protocol which is used by EtherDrive storage products. This powerful and efficient protocol leverages the cost advantages of Ethernet to provide true networked storage. For more information please contact Coraid at 877-548-7200 and visit our web site at

Hungarian ClusterGrid Infrastructure Project Uses EtherDrive Storage Blades

(PRWEB) May 21, 2005

The means by which the NIIF Program delivers its grid services is through The Hungarian ClusterGrid Infrastructure Project. The ClusterGrid Project integrates Intel processor PC’s into a single, large, countrywide interconnected set of clusters. The PCs are provided by participating Hungarian institutes, such as high schools, universities, or public libraries. Implementing and Coordinating this central infrastructure is the responsibility of the NIIF/HUNGARNET. Members use their PC’s for their own purposes during official work hours and offers the infrastructure for high-throughput computing when PC’s are not in normal use. The combination of “day-shift” (individual mode) and “night-shift” (grid mode) allows grid administrators to utilize CPU cycles that provide high computational infrastructure to the national research community.

IIF useNs EtherDrive Storage Blades for highly scalable storage support in the ClusterGrid project. EtherDrive storage easily accommodates storage needs of the mostly Linux operating system. PC’s use Debian GNU 3.1 systems and grid backbone machines use RedHat 7.3 distributions. Servers with dual 2.0 GHz Xeon processors provide the central entry point. The grid uses Condor as the local scheduler where labs are treated as individual pools that are interconnected by Condor’s native flocking mechanism.

“Through our eighteen year history, we have worked to provide the development program and the people it serves innovative technologies at high value,” says Peter Stefan, Project Manager for the NIIF Program. “The research body plays a key role in introducing the most advanced technologies to the academic and research communities in Hungary. This process often begins with the piloting of new networking technologies and applications to ultimately provide pioneering solutions for the community. EtherDrive Storage Blade is the storage solution the NIIF Program has been searching for. The product provides tremendous scalability at a very reasonable price point—it is flexible and very easy to use.”    

Coraid’s EtherDrive Storage Blades provide a low cost networked storage solution using Ethernet connections between the server and a shared storage array (pool). Multiple servers can access a common disk storage system eliminating wasted captive storage. With EtherDrive Storage Blades, the storage pool can be expanded easily with simple Ethernet connections. Storage array performance is limited only by the number of disks configured for RAID striping and the speed of the Ethernet connection at the server. EtherDrive Storage Blades are Direct Network Attached (DNA) block storage. DNA provides an Ethernet interface for hard disk drives. Coraid offers an optional EtherDrive RAIDBlade/20 Controller for users that don’t want to use Linux software RAID.
