Transform Digital Assets into Advantages
Rapid growth in data – fueled by data intensive applications, digital content creation, and online data archival – is creating significant challenges to enterprise IT organizations to store and manage their data. PROMISE storage solutions help enterprises protect and manage their data storage enabling them to transform their critical data assets into a competitive business advantage.

Preferred Solution for Primary and Value Tier Storage
For enterprise data centers and data-rich organizations dealing with the accelerating growth of unstructured content, PROMISE is the preferred storage solution for both primary and value tier storage. PROMISE solutions deliver flexible data management, protection, scalability and security for a new class of data intensive applications through a combination of advanced technologies including virtualization and energy efficient design.

Fundamentally Changes Storage Economics
This explosive growth is unstructured data has created significant storage challenges for enterprises storage environments. Ineffective data protection, wasted storage and rising operational costs are driving enterprises to adopt a cohesive storage strategy. PROMISE’s VTrak E-Class, a family of intelligent, high availability SAS/SATA based RAID storage systems address these issues and fundamentally changes storage economics from purchase and set up to operation and upgrades.

Simplifies Management
The VTrak line features PROMISE’s embedded browser-based management interface, WebPAM PROe eliminating the need to install additional software. All VTrak systems on the network can be configured and monitored using a single, easy-to-manage interface through an out-of-band Ethernet port. By using industry-standard management protocols, PROMISE simplifies integration with third-party management applications.

Flexibility to Fit Your Requirements
Choose the E-Class system that fits your requirements today with the confidence that you have the flexibility to change the interface (FC and SAS) simply by changing the controllers and also increase your available storage by adding JBOD systems, like our VTrak J-Class, to meet your future capacity needs.
