Globalstor Data Corp. Releases ExtremeStor-iTrax

New York - Globalstor Data Corporation, an OEM Integrator of high-performance RAID, SAN, and storage/video servers, debuted its ExtremeStor-iTrax at AES 2007.  
Equipped with a solid-state 64-bit iSCSI and NAS operating system, the iTrax allows multiuser access to consolidated, centralized, and searchable data.  
Using an iSCSI initiator, the iTrax appears as a local disc drive on any computer connected to the LAN or WAN.  Windows users can download the free Windows iSCSI initiator offered by Microsoft. Globalstor solutions can also be used as NAS (Network Attached Storage) servers in conjunction with iSCSI.  
When iSCSI initiators are loaded, every host system on the network can see and share stored data. Engineers on separate workstations can simultaneously edit and mix different sessions stored on any iTrax server. With the iTrax, audio professionals have centralized storage and retrieval of multiple sessions at their fingertips. In addition, users can remotely log into sessions from anywhere in the world using any Internet Protocol-based GUI.  
iTrax servers are available in various configurations, ranging from an 8-drive solution with RAID protection on board to a 36-drive version with multiple levels of RAID redundancy on board.
Available through Globalstor Data authorized partners, ExtremeStor-iTrax is available now with three-year factory warranties. Prices for the ExtremeStor-iTrax start at $4,995 with 1TB of usable storage.
