StoneFly Adds IP SAN

HAYWARD, Calif. -- StoneFly, Inc., a leading supplier of integrated IP storage area network (SAN) systems and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dynamic Network Factory, Inc. (DNF), today introduced OptiSAN-HD, a new IP SAN that blends high-performance operation with straightforward, economical IP SAN technology to optimize enterprise storage networking for the most demanding IT environments. Now available, OptiSAN-HD is the newest member of the company's existing line of OptiSAN Storage Concentrators.

Featuring 48 disks and support for up to 128 drives in a standard configuration, the OptiSAN-HD is ideal for organizations in need of 30 to 40TB of initial storage capacity. It can serve as a centralized storage repository for as many as 10 to 15 remote sites, while also meeting the demanding needs of a wide range of core applications including virtual servers, email servers, disk-to-disk backup, disaster recovery and online transaction processing.

According to Bahman Jalali, director of product management for StoneFly, Inc., the OptiSAN-HD also can be used to complement an existing IP SAN installation at a remote site or for any applications requiring mass storage. "This new high-capacity IP SAN is speedy and space efficient, with a smaller rack footprint than standard OptiSANs. As our largest IP SAN in initial storage capacity, it offers great headroom as storage needs increase," Jalali said.
