According to the company, the transtec NAS & iSCSI Storage Servers
feature the new 45nm chips from Intel, the 10Gb Ethernet and the dual SAS and SATA mode.
Often both of these types of data are located on the same storage server
, so configuring directory or file-level data movement rather than file-system level replication will serve the needs of all levels of data.
These storage servers
are in effect purpose-built master controllers.
It also said the Intel storage server
and Emulex HBAs combined offer a scalable architecture powered by the quad-core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series.
Built on the Microsoft Windows Storage Server
2003 platform, the InteliNAS M Series offers greater dependability, seamless integration and reduced management and administrative workloads.
Hitachi TagmaStore Universal Storage Platform adds IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server
Models 750, 800 and 800 turbo as supported storage, the company claims.
Physically consolidating storage in an IP SAN centralizes storage management, making it possible to manage one storage server
or every storage server
on the network from a single location.
One such device is a scalable 10-gigabit-per-second iSCSI storage server
controller (soon to be released by iStor Networks) that's designed to meet networked storage requirements, both internal and external.
