Message Text: LSI announced the channel and OEM availability of the Syncro CS solution - a cost-effective and easy to deploy storage solution for small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) and remote and branch offices.

Operating on Microsoft Windows Server 2012, Syncro CS brings new benefits such as shared storage and storage controller failover into direct-attached storage (DAS) environments at a fraction of the cost and complexity of traditional high-availability solutions.

LSI Syncro CS is designed to reduce downtime for critical applications, making failover latency transparent to the application or user. Syncro CS brings the data protection, high performance, low cost and low complexity found in DAS solutions and adds the additional benefits of shared storage and high availability.

Built on LSI MegaRAID technology, Syncro CS solutions use two controller cards to allow system administrators to build a high-availability, shared DAS solution. Syncro CS supports two deployment models:

- Syncro CS 9286-8e: Provides shared storage clustering using two volume servers and an off-the-shelf JBOD. This affordable solution brings shared storage and controller failover to DAS environments.

-Syncro CS 9271-8i: Enables OEMs and system builders to use Syncro CS controllers to build cost-effective two-node Cluster-in-a-Box systems and deliver high availability in a single self-contained unit.
