Auspex platforms serve files for LSI storage
LSI Logic Storage Systems Inc., Milpitas, Calif., and Auspex Systems Inc., Santa Clara, Calif., announced that the Auspex NSc3000 and NSc3000V file-serving platforms for SANs have completed the testing required to earn Certified Compatible status with LSI Logic's E-Series storage systems. The Auspex NSc3000 Network Storage Controller and NSc3000V platform serve files directly from SAN attached storage, such as the LSI Logic Storage E-series, via NAS protocols. For LSI Logic customers, this eliminates the expense of purchasing and managing a conventional NAS appliance by consolidating NAS file serving capability into a single E-Series storage system, according to LSI. The LSI Logic E series offers 36 G Bytes to more than 160 T Bytes of scale. The Auspex NSc3000 and NSc3000V provide secure UNIX, Windows, Linux and Mac OSX data sharing from a single data image, eliminating the need to create and maintain duplicate data sets, Auspex said.
