greenBytes, announced Cypress, the most efficient data storage system available on the market. An ultra high-efficiency NAS (network attached storage) appliance for archiving long-term, persistent data, Cypress cuts the energy consumption associated with data storage by up to 85 percent. greenBytes has combined an optimized version of Sun Microsystems’ SunFire X4500 storage server with Open Solaris and its own proprietary ZFS+ software to deliver an innovative suite of storage technologies in one compact, inexpensive 4U package. The only system for data archiving built on a non-proprietary platform, Cypress brings together MAID (massive array of idle disks) technology and real-time data de-duplication to achieve dramatic reductions in the space, power, time and money required to store persistent data.
