EMC subsidiary Iomega announced the px12-400r network storage array with capacities ranging from 4 TB to 48 TB this week.
The 2U server is powered by a 3.3 GHz Core i3-3220 Ivy Bridge processor, and comes with 4 GB DDR3 memory, as well as interfaces for iSCSI and USB 2.0. The maximum power consumption is rated at 200 watts with up to 12 SATA-II HDDs.
According to Iomega, the servers are offered with built-in McAfee VirusScan Enterprise as well as EMC's Atmos Cloud Connector and Avamar data deduplication by default. Target application areas include production data stores, server virtualization, backup-to-disk target and video surveillance.
Pricing starts at $4,700 for the server without any hard drives and tops out at $13,500 for a fully decked out 48 TB system with 12 4 TB HDDs.
