May 10, 2007, Yorktown, Virginia – Cybernetics has announced the immediate availability of advanced new features for its miSAN®® D Series IP SAN solution.
Cybernetics miSAN®® D Series is a performance SAN storage product line. With the affordability of a NAS, the miSAN®® D Series functions as a SAN, without the cost or complexity of a Fibre Channel infrastructure. The miSAN®® D Series simply connects to any Ethernet network and presents direct, block level storage capacity to servers and workstations across the network. miSAN®® storage is software agnostic, and appears as a drive letter to heterogeneous operating systems across a network or enterprise. This technology makes it possible to add disk capacity for any number of users, all with the security and reliability of advanced RAID technology - without having to actually procure a RAID array for every computer in the network. Based on iSCSI technology, the miSAN®® is very simple and uncomplicated. Setup takes only minutes.
The product now features a centralized console for accessing all miSAN®® D Series models across the network. Administrators simply log into the miSAN®® to manage and monitor all units from a consolidated, easy to use management interface. Add any number of miSAN®® storage units to the network or enterprise, and manage them all from one central point.
With this major new release, the miSAN®® D Series now supports powerful hardware level replication and failover benefits. Completely independent of any operating system or application capabilities, a pair of miSAN®® D Series models now has the ability to operate as a master and live replica, ready for immediate failover in the event of a failure of one of the units. This is an incredible breakthrough for small to medium businesses struggling to maintain business continuity for applications such as SQL and Exchange on a tight budget. Replication software products cost thousands of dollars, in addition to the cost of the redundant hardware. This new feature eliminates the need for expensive software solutions, with hardware level efficiency.
