I’m seeing alot of technical call outs for storage solutions encompassing CIFS and NFS, SAN provisioning and replication with snapshots. Condor offers many vendor solutions that allow for above the norm design in features. We have acceleration appliances for highest IOPS , which can equal a 10 node NAS cluster in performance at an entry level cost of $35K. We have enterprise arrays, starting at under $10K for 14TB of full featured SAN with 24/7 support inclusive. If you call out your technical specs to me, we shall work with vendor engineers to architect an impressive match, feature by desired feature , with terrific price points. My promise, I shall spare no effort on your behalf in our research phase, if you provide adequate details on what you are seeking. -JMW
We’ve been bombarded with NAS price requests lately. Please note for least cost that all of our open storage vaults can be installed as DAS, NAS or SAN with the proper add-ons, as they simply appear as a drive letter to any OS, while running raid underneath the covers. For a turnkey single vendor solution, we are pleased to have two partner solutions. Both are green powered and we can add ILM, Backup and CAS Single Instance Store to the solution plus iSCSI is now available. I have talked to clients whom wish to have three separate tiers of NAS, spreading out costs among vendors.
So what is your criteria for selecting a NAS solution? …I’ll share with you how Land Rover sold me a car and I am tough to sell to: their competitors had lots of features I asked for but they were all upgrades and add-ons to base sticker price. The LR sales guy kept stating “that’s included, it’s standard” on every question I asked. This made it very simple for me to decide, as when all the good stuff comes standard, that impresses me. We deliver best value to our clients by also offering more features that come standard, and we’ll even let you test drive our hardware for 30 days. VaRoom.
