BILLERICA, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/14 -- Winchester Systems Inc., a leading data-storage infrastructure provider to Military and Commercial Systems Integrators and Service/Solution Providers, today released two white papers, titled "FlashNAS ZFS: Enterprise NAS Functionality at a Fraction of the Price" and "FlashDisk FX: Enterprise DAS and SAN Storage Functionality at a Fraction of the Price." Each white paper describes "must have" file- or block-storage requirements of organizations that depend on their storage infrastructure to survive, and how Winchester Systems storage products address those needs -- while at the same time keeping customers' capital and operational costs to a minimum.
"Too many storage customers are forced to choose between two extremes: high-end capability for a high-end price vs. low-end capability for a low-end price," said Winchester Systems CEO Joel Leider. "We designed our FlashDisk FX line of block-storage systems and FlashNAS ZFS dual-redundant NAS systems to provide a 'middle ground' between these two extremes. We're providing smart alternatives for organizations that depend upon their storage infrastructures to survive, but don't want to pay premium prices for capabilities they don't need."
