GigeNET, a managed hosting provider headquartered just outside of Chicago, has launched a new SAN platform with high-speed Enterprise SAS Solid State Drives. The RAM based SSD technology would provide customers with high performance and reliability.

managed-hosting-provider-gigenetGigeNET’s new storage area network (SAN) features Enterprise SAS SSD that would offer many benefits including advanced caching for ultra-high read and write speeds and superior reliability. This technology intelligently prioritizes data based on frequency of use and places this data on ultra-high-speed, RAM based, SSD technology for superior performance.

SAS hard drives are faster than SATA drives. Moreover, SAS drives offer greater reliability with lower bit error rates (BER – a measure of read error rates for disk drives).

Our SAN platform delivers just that at affordable prices.”

GigeNET is a managed hosting provider offering dedicated servers, cloud hosting, hybrid, and colocation, as well as DDoS protection. GigeNET is headquartered just outside of Chicago, Illinois where it owns and operates a 17,000 sq. ft. enterprise-grade private data center.
