"As the industry storage wars continue to rage, Compaq today stepped into two new storage markets, extending its storage area network (SAN) support to lower-end departmental/workgroup implementations while also introducing the company's first-ever network-attached storage (NAS) device.

"In the future, Compaq will add support for clustering and Novell's NFS (NetWare File System), notes Roger A. Javens, design program manager in Compaq's Storage Product Division."

"According to Javens, the new RA4100 is the first SAN system from Compaq to support multihost clusters, the first to use a switch rather than a hub, and also the first to support Linux. Other OS supported by the RA4100 SAN include Windows 2000, Windows NT Server, NetWare and SCO Unix. Compaq is manufacturing the switch from Gadzoox."
