T-2000 Controller Delivers High-Capacity, High-Performance Storage
COLUMBIA, Md. -- Digi-Data Corporation, a leading manufacturer of clustered RAID controllers for utility storage, data protection and archive markets, announces its storage solution for the Southeast Alabama Southeast Alabama is the term used to identify the southeastern counties in the state of Alabama. Other names for the area are The Wiregrass and Lower Alabama. The area includeds the Counties of Dale, Pike, Houston, Coffee, Henry, Geneva, Barbour, Crenshaw and Covington. Medical Center. Digi-Data's scalable T-2000 controller, installed by LH Computer Services Data processing (timesharing, batch processing), software development and consulting services.

"Most of today's products are either very low-end or very high-end, but that isn't the case with Digi-Data's solutions," explains Doug Cole, president of LH Computer Services. "Our company was founded by computer support specialists, and we understand the importance of offering reasonably priced products and services to the mid-sized organization."
The Medical Center previously used tape technology to back up its 40+ Terabytes of managed data. It took an entire day to recover the facility's servers, hindering the staff and potentially compromising patient care.
LH Computer Services rectified that situation by installing a dual Digi-Data T-2000 controller with a 48-bay Serial ATA See SATA.

The original Parallel ATA (PATA) interface was launched in 1986. ) drive enclosure, and delivering high-capacity, high-performance storage over Just a Bunch of Disks See JBOD.

The Digi-Data solution allows the Medical Center to store one set of data on tape and the other on the Digi-Data disk array loaded with 22 TB of data. The Digi-Data storage is attached to a secondary IBM Tivoli Storage Manager “ADSM” redirects here. For the stock exchange, see Abu Dhabi Securities Market.

With Digi-Data's easily expandable system, the Medical Center can grow the size of the solution or add more controllers as its environment changes. Using this new disk-based system along with TSM, the recovery of servers is now less than two hours - a 75% time savings.
"The Digi-Data disk system did the job for us and it was well worth it. We are now able to go back to point-in-time recovery within 14 days and we are looking to expand it to 30-35 days," says Clyde Williams, infrastructure systems manager for Southeast Alabama Medical Center. "We were happy with LH Computer Services as well. They are a great resource for us, providing the technical expertise we need, as well as being very responsive."
