iXsystems’ TrueNAS X10 Breaks New Ground With Entry Level Enterprise-Class Unified Storage Solution

TrueNAS X10 Eliminates Storage Compromise by Delivering 20 TB of Hybrid File and Block Storage for under $10,000

SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwired – June 06, 2017) – iXsystems, the industry leader in storage and servers driven by Open Source, today announced the release of the TrueNAS X10. The TrueNAS X10 is a cost-effective enterprise storage solution that is designed to help small and midsized businesses modernize their storage infrastructures. For years, customers have struggled with their storage infrastructures. They have overbought costly enterprise-class storage or put off the purchase of enterprise-class storage due to its high cost. Companies unable to invest in enterprise-class storage are often forced to use legacy SAN/NAS systems, deploy consumer NAS systems, use direct access storage (DAS), or build their own software-defined storage (SDS) systems. The TrueNAS X10 clears this barrier to entry by providing enterprise-class storage for SMBs and others that is challenging the Dell™ EMC™ VNXe, Dell™ EMC™ Unity, HPE™ MSA 2040, and NetApp™ FAS2600 series of products with its functionality and price point.

The TrueNAS X10 comes in a dense 2U form factor accommodating up to 12 disk drives. It enables you to reduce space, power and cooling costs and respond to ever-changing business requirements. It is optimized for SMBs, remote offices, and enterprises of all sizes. It lets you start small and grow to nearly 400 TB as your needs change. Come see the TrueNAS X10 in the iXsystems booth at the BSDCan conference in Ottawa, Canada on June 9-10, 2017.

Customer Quote

Chris Caravella, Chief Engineer, 1stAveMachine

“At 1stAveMachine, it is business critical for us to utilize enterprise class storage. Organizations don’t want to depend on a consumer-grade NAS or struggle with software-defined storage. Instead, 1stAveMachine is looking for a modern solution that is built from the ground up as an enterprise class storage array that does not depend on five-year-old technology. We had many choices of an entry level Enterprise-Class storage array, but the obvious choice is the TrueNAS X10. It provides us with enterprise class storage for all our applications and grows from gigabytes to nearly 400 terabytes in a dense form factor. It is more economical and uses less than half the power needed by other storage vendors, which helps lower our storage TCO. The ability for us to replicate across the entire portfolio ensures our business data is always protected, providing us with a peace of mind.”

“As our customers tackle the need to store ever increasing data, back it up, and share it, it’s crucial to provide them with a modern unified storage array that offers Enterprise-Class services and can deal with all types of data efficiently. That’s what the TrueNAS X10 delivers on. The TrueNAS X10 also is more economical while consuming less power than many other Enterprise-Class storage vendors. That is very important to our customers. The TrueNAS X10 grows from gigabytes to nearly 400 terabytes at a fraction of a dollar per enterprise gigabyte. It offers the simplicity, reliability, and availability with enterprise functionality that our SMB and enterprise customers expect.”

iXsystems Executive Quote

Brett Davis, Executive Vice President

“No matter your size, when customers are dealing with data growth using consumer-grade storage is not sufficient. iXsystems is making it simpler and more affordable for both SMBs and enterprises to modernize their IT infrastructures with a cost-effective enterprise storage array. By lowering the cost of entry for enterprise-capable storage, customers can move away from storage that lacks enterprise features, such as in-line compression, a self-healing file system, and unified SAN/NAS storage, and over to a storage solution that grows with them.”
