Our customers are looking for efficiency and scale as they adopt distributed storage infrastructure.
WATERTOWN, Mass. (PRWEB) October 15, 2007
Sanbolic has enhanced the scalability and availability of this storage infrastructure platform by adding support for unlimited LUN sizes and for Basic and GPT disk structures in LaScala Clustered Volume Manager. LaScala's architecture is also chkdsk-ready. Melio Clustered File System adds support for Multilayer chkdsk, which can run simultaneously on multiple nodes as a background operation. The new release also implements network oplocks and adds support for up to 16 processors per server.
The new features enable customers to implement very large, centrally managed, highly available storage environments for both physical and virtual servers. Performance in applications like clustered NAS using Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003 R2 scales linearly as additional servers are added to the storage cluster. An eight-node cluster of the Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 platform has demonstrated 200,000 IOPS/second. Up to 64 nodes in a cluster have been demonstrated, and the company expects the products to scale to at least 256 nodes in a single cluster.
The new releases also improve support for Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 and VMware Server solutions.
"Our customers are looking for efficiency and scale as they adopt distributed storage infrastructure." said Bala Kasiviswanathan, Director, Storage Solutions Marketing, Microsoft Corp. "Sanbolic support of the Windows platform with its Melio 2008 Clustered File System and the LaScala 2008 Volume Manager will help our customers achieve this goal."
Sanbolic software currently supports Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 2000 Server, Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008 Beta 3. Sanbolic distributes its product solutions worldwide through a network of distributors, OEMs, VARs and system integrators.
Sanbolic will be exhibiting this solution at the Microsoft Partner Pavilion at Storage Networking World in Dallas October 15-18.
