Compact Storage Solution designed for departmental and smaller organizations.

JMR Electronics today introduced the FORTRA Desktop 6-Bay, a powerful, compact Fibre Channel storage solution designed to bring departmental-level storage features to smaller, cost-conscious organizations.

Measuring just 11 inches by 7 inches by 12 inches, the Desktop 6-Bay is, according to JMR, the smallest form factor large capacity, high-performance 2GB Fibre Channel solution on the market. The 6-drive, 2GB Fibre Channel device offers an easy, cost-effective way to increase storage capacity and deliver an enterprise-strength storage solution to the desktop, a workgroup or department. With its small footprint, the 6-bay tower can provide up to 876GB of Fibre Channel storage in environments where space is at a premium. By adding more FORTRA enclosures, the Desktop 6-Bay can be easily scaled as storage needs grow.

The FORTRA Desktop 6-Bay is optimized for image-intensive, high-bandwidth digital media environments, including post-production, HDTV, visual simulation, animation, broadcast, image databases, medical imaging and Internet/Intranet applications. JMR says that the device is also an attractive solution for small or home offices with massive photo, music or video files.

3The Desktop 6-Bay is a significant addition to our FORTRA product line and solves one of the most pressing problems facing IT managers how to pack more high-performance storage resources in little space,2 said Josef Rabinovitz, JMR President and CEO. 3With its enterprise-level features and performance, at an affordable price, it can greatly enhance the storage capabilities of even the smallest organizations.2

The FORTRA Desktop 6-Bay is available now at an MSRP of $1,998.
