"CentraVision Supports Data Sharing for Collaborative Workflow."

"Advanced Digital Information Corporation (Nasdaq:ADIC) announced today that it is bringing Linux servers into Storage Area Network (SAN) data sharing applications by supporting the fast-growing operating system with ADIC's CentraVision File-sharing System (CVFS)."

"The new support will mean that Linux systems for a wide range of applications will be able to use SANs to share consolidated storage, increase workflow efficiency, and eliminate both bandwidth bottlenecks and the need for redundant data. Linux is rapidly gaining favor for a range of applications including web hosting, collaborative data analysis, and enterprise computing. With the new Linux support, CFVS will be the first SAN file-sharing system to allow data sharing down to the individual file level both for single-platform networks and heterogeneous systems that combine UNIX, Windows NT, and Linux servers."
