HAYWARD, CA: StoneFly, supplier of integrated IP storage area network (SAN) systems and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dynamic Network Factory, (DNF), has announced that it gets certification on 6TB drives across all of its IP SAN, scale out NAS, business continuity, disaster recovery, and hyper-converged infrastructure storage solutions.

Perfect for data centers requiring high-density solutions where available rack space and low power requirements are extremely valuable commodities, StoneFly storage appliances effectively increase storage capacity by 50 percent across the board while reducing both CapEx and OpEx per usable TeraByte. StoneFly's high-availability solutions now feature massively scalable capacities of up to 90TB for every 1U of rack height.

To deliver 50 percent increased storage capacity, StoneFly  has chosen Hitachi's first-to-market Ultrastar He6 helium hard drives  which feature one-seventh the density of air, 23 percent lower idle power, 49 percent better Watts per TeraByte, 30 percent quieter operation and 4-5°C cooler operation comparable 4TB drives.

Mo Tahmasebi, President and CEO for StoneFly says that this "latest capacity helps to reduce the size of your storage appliance and bring the operating costs down."

StoneFly prides itself on its extensive drive qualification, performance and RAID certification testing processes, insuring that only the "gold-standard" drives are certified and shipped in every appliance.
