Non-disruptive file migration: Appliance-driven NFM solutions can provide, once and for all, the answer for what has been seen as the bane of NAS
administrators everywhere: file migration.
BlueArc's SiliconServer is the logical evolution of storage servers, delivering a product that offers massive parallelization by using new reprogrammable FPGA technology to move the traditional NAS
software into a true hardware implementation, allowing NAS
to scale for the first time and provide a sensible alternative to SAN.
with its IP connections are non-deterministic: the server issues its request, and other than tracking a time-out period does not wait for a response to its action.
The EP9312 provides additional features, such as integrated audio and display functions, making it ideally suited for media NAS

Gateways consolidate enterprise-wide file services for Windows, UNIX and Linux clients and servers onto Fibre Channel attached, multi-vendor disk arrays.
Endorsed and recommended by Microsoft, the solution allows high-performance application services to directly access their data from the same storage pool that the NAS
device is using for file data.
Stackability to permit easy deployment of multiple NAS
units to accommodate large media collections.
Last year, unit sales of midrange NAS
servers in the $5,000 to $25,000 range grew by 58.
