Business Description

Compare:WDC, STX, EMC, NTAP, SNDK » details
Traded in other countries:BXH.Germany
Dot Hill Systems Corporation was formed in 1999 by the combination of Box Hill Systems Corp., or Box Hill, and Artecon, Inc., or Artecon. It reincorporated in Delaware in 2001. It designs, manufactures and markets a range of software and hardware storage systems for the entry and mid-range storage markets. It has two operating segments which include storage systems and standalone storage software. Typical customers for its storage systems operating segment, which includes its AssuredSAN line of storage array products, include organizations requiring high reliability, high performance networked storage and data management solutions in an open systems architecture. The Company's storage solutions consist of integrated hardware, firmware and software products employing a modular system that allows end-users to add various protocol, performance, capacity or data protection schemes as needed. The Company's broad range of products, from small capacity direct attached to complete multi-hundred terabyte, or TB, storage area networks, or SANs, provide end-users with a cost-effective means of addressing increasing storage demands at compelling price-performance points. The Company's current product family based on its AssuredSAN architecture provides high performance and large disk array capacities for a broad variety of environments, employing Fibre Channel, Internet Small Computer Systems Interface, or iSCSI and Serial Attached SCSI, or SAS, interconnects to switches and/or hosts. In addition, its Assured family of data protection software products provides additional layers of data protection options to complement its line of storage disk arrays. The Company's current mainstream 2000 and 3000 series of entry-level storage products and Just a Bunch of Disks, or JBOD, arrays are targeted primarily at mainstream enterprise and small-to-medium business, or SMB, applications. The Company's AssuredSAN products have been distinguished by certification as Network Equipment Building System, or NEBS, Level 3 (a telecommunications standard for equipment used in central offices) and are MIL-STD-810F (a military standard created by the U.S.government) compliant based on their ruggedness and reliability. In February 2010, it launched the latest AssuredSAN 3000 series of storage arrays that provide high speed interface options including 8 gigabyte, or GB, Fibre Channel, 1GB and 10GB iSCSI over Ethernet and 6GB SAS connectivity. The Company's AssuredUVS product line, formerly known as the intelligent storage networking system, or iSN TM, is based on the technology it acquired in January 2010 from Cloverleaf Communications, Inc., or Cloverleaf, a privately held software company focused on heterogeneous storage virtualization and unified storage technologies. AssuredSnap is its DMS software that introduces point in time snapshot technology into the AssuredSAN product family. AssuredSnap provides the ability to create point-in-time copies or backups of di
