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
Nexsan has announced the DATAbeast storage solution thru it’s reseller partners, now available as a toally integrated SAN solution. It has alot to offer our clients who cannot afford a three lettter SAN but it really fits best for clients looking at 70+ TB. of storage. With 4GB. fibre connections and redundancy back to the switch, this promises to offer a swiss army knife of SAN features all under one part number vs. the “that’s extra but available” answer that many SAN vendors will answer back with. The array features 4GB Fibre Channel interfaces for access to block-level data and NAS interfaces for access to file-level information. With the DATABeast, all components are pre-installed, preconfigured and ready for operations in a 42U or 25U rack mount configurations.
The DATABeast also includes management tools that allow thin provisioning, VMWare support, storage pooling, tiering and virtualization, as well as mirroring, snapshots and replication.
