I was alerted to this by three people this morning. Here’s the first to give me a link:
First up, Apple releases XSAN 2.
“Now a single workstation or server can access Xsan volumes simultaneously. MultiSAN is ideal for users who need to access multiple Xsan volumes from the same workstation or server, such as newsrooms with separate SAN volumes for production and broadcast.”
Now, since I am new to XSAN, I am not up on the capabilities of the current, or rather, OLD system. I am just starting on one today. This is why I announced this…because I am not beginning to work on these. Click on the link to learn more.
But more interesting is the news that Apple discontinued the XSERVE Raid line. It is no longer offered at the Apple Store. As the first link notes, Apple is turning to a third party vendor, Promise VTrak, a company that I haven’t heard of yet.
