“Artecon today reaffirmed its leadership position in
high-availability open systems SAN-, server- and network-attached
storage (NAS) solutions by announcing support for the Linux
operating system (OS) across its LynxArray and LynxNSS product
lines.”

“Linux support is one of the more important reasons we selected
Artecon products for MultiAccess (the Internet services
organization of ING Bank, headquartered in the Netherlands), since
other storage systems we evaluated had trouble with Linux,” said
Gerard Beekmans, technical director for Comrac, the systems
integrator that implemented Internet services systems for
MultiAccess. “We’re running Solaris, NT and Linux and have a
LynxArray on the Web server and another LynxArray on the news
server while the LynxNSS NAS system is used for Web hosting.
MultiAccess has been extremely happy with both products in their
heavy use Linux production environment.”

“For users wanting to migrate from their existing OS to take
advantage of Linux, LynxNSS is especially appropriate because of
the system’s ability to read and serve files from multiple
protocols, thus avoiding the cumbersome task of copying files into
different file system formats and taking those files offline”
