NEW YORK -- Exanet, the leading clustered NAS systems provider, is pleased to announce the launch of ExaStore Clustered NAS 2008, designed to meet the most demanding business needs in a full range of applications and environments.

Organizations in all industries have seen exponential growth in data and its related storage requirements, creating a considerable storage burden, says Dr.Arnon Gat, Exanet President & CEO. ExaStore 2008 has been specifically enhanced to manage that burden.Exanets clustered NAS solutions leverage the latest Intel Quad Core microprocessors, facilitating high performance and superior energy and footprint efficiency.

eHarmony, the Internet relationship service with more than 17 million users, selected ExaStore to manage its exponential data growth; its initial ExaStore system was expanded within less than two months leveraging ExaStore 2008s automatic scalability.

Installing ExaStore 2008 with its single file system, ease of management and high performance has already provided us a significant ROI, says Cyrus Mohit, eHarmonys Director of Data Center Operations. We are more efficiently leveraging our existing infrastructure and deploying more applications over NFS instead of iSCSI or traditional SAN. In addition, we no longer have to worry about volume management as ExaStores ease of administration has made it a very simple, quick task.

ExaStore Clustered NAS 2008 System features scalable capacity and performance, leverages virtualized storage, and offers enterprise-class features. It can independently provision petabytes of capacity and scale performance to unprecedented levels online with existing applications, while its load balancing and single file system maximize storage utilization and minimize the total cost of ownership.Thanks to ExaStores unique approach to infrastructure, it allows IT managers to centrally configure and manage all storage on all machines, all at the same time.Organizations must find better ways to manage, protect and store their file data, says Mark Peters, an analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group. Exanet realized that companies need performance as well as ways to improve utilization.

It would be foolish for IT organizations, because of constrained budgets and energy resources, not to evaluate a system like the ExaStore, which specifically addresses information access and system optimization requirements.

ExaStore supports petabytes of storage, allowing management of more than 100 billion files in a single name space. Its high performance, availability, and scalability ensure that data is always immediately accessible at any system size, enhancing productivity.

ExaStore clustered NAS systems are available from Exanet and its partners supporting a wide range of storage hardware. Exanet offers our customers a choice in storage hardware, allowing customers to optimize their hardware purchase decisions, says Clive Surfleet, Exanets Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer.

ExaStore also responds to the highest responsibility for Green IT, Dr. Gat concludes. ExaStore 2008 maximizes hardware utilization and reduces both power consumption and footprint requirements.ExaStore 2008 is available immediately directly from Exanet and its authorized distributors worldwide.Exanet Inc.
