February 12, 2007, Yorktown, Virginia – - Cybernetics has announced the immediate availability of miSAN® models with SAN, NAS, NFS, and backup in one slim appliance.
Cybernetics has just released the newest generation in the popular miSAN® product line. The R Series is a feature rich, multi-purpose device, configurable for use as an IP SAN, a DFS NAS, and D2D2T backup - any or all - in the same 2U appliance.
The iSCSI disk virtualization feature presents block level disk space to a variety of Windows, Unix, and Linux operating systems across any standard Ethernet network. Network computers realize all the benefits and redundancy of RAID, without the cost of installing disk arrays on every server.
The DFS NAS capability delivers powerful replication and snapshot features. Snapshots are Exchange and SQL Server application aware for roll back protection of critical files and databases. Tightly integrated with Windows Active Directory, the miSAN® R Series supports DFS Namespaces for higher availability of data as well as load sharing. The DFS Replication feature uses remote differential compression to replicate only changes to files, making it possible to replicate large data stores over slower WAN network connections. Two miSAN® units can be placed at completely remote locations to maintain a full replica of storage for high availability requirements.
The miSAN® R Series is also available with an integrated tape drive to support disk-disk-tape backup of its own storage space, all within the same 2U enclosure. With the ARCserve option, the miSAN® R Series supports a wide array of applications, including Exchange and SQL Server, as well as bare metal disaster recovery.
