Building on my past experience in Afghanistan, I knew the file servers
needed to include a UPS, KVM and ruggedized transit case.
Scaling performance and throughput of existing file servers
Auspex introduced the world's first Network Attached Storage (NAS) server shortly after its founding in 1987, creating a new breed of storage appliance capable of delivering significant performance and administrative benefits over general-purpose file servers
Maxtor MaxAttach NAS file servers
are also compatible with network management tools from leading vendors such as Computer Associates, Hewlett-Packard, and Tivoli Systems.
Other features include system enhancements that double the performance of previous-generation MaxAttach file servers
, a SCSI port for local backup to tape drives and libraries and dual 10/100 Ethernet ports for robustness and fault tolerance.
This provides much faster access to the large volumes of data that file servers
Their commands are not as complex as LANs', they don't need powerful dedicated file servers
and they can share printers.
Accessing file servers
across a WAN was thought to be impossible due to the effects of latency -- regardless of how much bandwidth is available.
Management is complex, scaling is difficult, and clients are statically mapped to file resources so that changes to file servers
directly impact users.
The file servers
continue to be responsible for administering security, application metering and mass storage.
To accomplish this, they first create policies or scripts to migrate all the low-value data from the file servers
and DAS storage to the low-end NAS devices.
Stated Esther Lee, Auspex Vice President and CFO, "The installed base of IBM 7051 file servers
is quite small and we do not anticipate that the service and maintenance revenues or associated costs covered under the November 7 agreement will impact our financial results.
5 for Linux/FreeBSD offers antivirus protection of data stored on file servers
in a heterogeneous environment.
FC could be used in either a loop technology, with up to 126 devices attached to a loop, or in a fabric with switches connecting multiple file servers
and storage devices.
We believe EISA, the oft used previous architecture for file servers
, will rapidly be replaced by PCI due to the increased performance offered by subsystems running at bus speed.
