US-based JBKnowledge has deployed Dot Hill Systems’ Ultra48 AssuredSAN high density storage system, in a bid to solve storage challenges of construction and insurance industries.

The Ultra48 AssuredSAN is said to house around 58 terabytes of data on small form factor 2.5in devices.

It has been developed to offer randomized sequential I/O optimization for demanding and multiple-stream workflows, and the array enclosure can support any combination of solid-state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives, noted Dot Hill.

JBKnowledge network services director Mike Bentley said: "Dot Hill’s Ultra48 AssuredSAN storage array provides the density, performance and reliability we need to mirror our storage area network, so that our customers can always access their data.

"Using half the space compared to typical alternatives, the Ultra48 is unmatched in cost-effectiveness."

JBKnowledge provides technology solutions for construction, risk management and insurance enterprises in North America, the Caribbean and the Middle East.

It offers web solutions such as SmartBidNet software for commercial general contractors, SmartCompliance management software for risk managers, SmartInsight construction qualification dashboard and the SmartReality mobile app for project visualization.
