Apple ships first SAN

Apple ships first SAN

APPLE has started shipping its first SAN system which will shortly be available through its New Zealand distributor Renaissance.

The Apple Xsan is a 64-bit cluster file system for Mac OS X that shares files and volumes up to 16TB on a high-speed fibre channel network.

Renaissance MD Paul Johnstone says they expect to sell a reasonable number of systems and customers who have trialled the beta versions have been very happy.

“Video networking companies are very keen to see the product. Although it’s early days, there’s already pent-up interest in the product,” he says.

Johnstone says Renaissance has invested “a lot” of money in training so it can offer a high level of technical expertise.

“This has been talked about for a long time so we’re expecting reasonable demand. It’s new for us and expands sto-rage options.”

He says high performance and aggressive pricing, $1,595 incl GST per client per server, places Xsan in a strong position.
