New Storage Solutions

We’ve taken the first step to replace our aging network storage solution by ordering a pair of HP Lefthand Starter SANs. We’re beginning with two of the 12 TB units, using iSCSI.

What we liked about these units is that they appear as one cluster of nodes to other severs, even if one SAN is in our server room, and another is in secondary server room across campus. Files written to the SAN appear in both locations, and there is auto-fall over if one fails.

We also like that the SANs are designed to be user installed, and come with a day of training. There is also a virtual software version of the Lefthand SAN solution that can be used on regular servers and older storage systems.

I’ll post later about how our installation goes. Here’s a link to more info:
