Worldwide Computer Products News-7 June 2001-Raidtec launches new product range featuring merged SAN, NAS technologies (C)1995-2001 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Raidtec Corp has released a new product range that merges network attached storage (NAS) and storage area network (SAN) technologies to leverage the features and performance of a SAN with the ease and convenience of a NAS product.

The SNAZ range currently consists of two products - SNAZ FC and SNAZ R6. SNAZ FC is a file server that resides between the local area network (LAN) and a SAN. From the LAN side, the SNAZ FC appears as a NAS device, serving multi-protocol files to heterogeneous clients, yet its storage resides on the SAN.

SNAZ R6, meanwhile, is a file server that plugs directly into the Ethernet switch on the LAN, offering from the LAN side up to 430Gb of local hot swap RAID protected storage. SAN connectivity can be added later increasing capacity to multi-TBs. The SNAZ FC and the SNAZ R6 cost GBP3,379 and GBP3,995, respectively.

In related news Raidtec, which has its corporate offices in Ireland and the US, has opened its first UK office in Leatherhead, Surrey. In addition the company has appointed CMS Peripherals to distribute its products in Britain.
