Munich, 01.08.2013 – With immediate effect, the Ismaning-based storage manufacturer, N-TEC GmbH, is taking over the exclusive distribution of server chassis and storage products from Ci Design for the European market. The products of the US manufacturer, Ci Design, were specially developed for the operation of high-capacity servers and storage solutions in data centres. Products with eight to 62 HDD bays are available. As different types of storage media can be mixed and matched, systems based on Ci Design products can be superbly scaled and thereby offer excellent investment protection. 2.5″ and 3.5″ HDD and SSD with an SAS or SATA interface can be used.
The storage solutions manufacturer, N-TEC, is thereby supplementing its range of products from its own production with high-quality storage and server chassis from Ci Design.
A complete family of server chassis with 8, 16, 24, 50 and 62 hard disc bays has been created in close collaboration between the two partners. Ci Design is thereby relying on the long-standing expertise that N-TEC has in the server and storage environment. N-TEC drew on its own experience from day-to day business in product development in working with Ci Design.
“When we market products that do not come from our own production facilities, they must fulfil a number of key points. Of course, the first of these is reliability. This is achieved by using high quality components such as Zippy power supplies, a well-thought out and sophisticated ventilation system for the components to be integrated, as well as protection of the hard drives against vibration.
Second, the products must be available for a long life cycle and always with the same configuration. Solutions with the same product number should not vary in features and functionality. Unfortunately, this is no longer a matter of course these days, but it is a mandatory requirement for us and our customers.
And naturally, the prices must be competitive,” says Sven Meyerhofer, Managing Director of N-TEC.
Since the requirements are different depending on the type of customer, N-TEC offers products from Ci Design that are empty, as a “ready to assemble” (storage) server chassis, as part of a barebones server or as a basis for complete, pre-configured turn-key systems.
In terms of complete systems from N-TEC, the customer can choose from a wide range of server, NAS or SAN solutions.
Since N-TEC has already been using the Ci Design chassis for many years for its own successful rapidNAS, rapidServe and rapidCore solutions, the long-term supply of replacements parts is assured, in some cases for ten years or more.
“If customers have special requirements, we also offer product customisation to meet customer requests. This can range from simple visual modifications (e.g. colour, logo), mechanical changes and upgrades (e.g. front covers), all the way up to complete new development. We offer a complete line of services from development, to prototyping and series production,” continues Meyerhofer
