"VA Linux Systems today introduced the VA Linux 9205 NAS system--a convenient, ultradense 2U (3.5-inch-high) storage appliance that leverages VA's expertise in Open Source software and high-density Linux systems engineering. The VA Linux 9205 NAS is VA's first network-attached storage (NAS) solution, complementing the company's product line--the industry's broadest selection of 1U and 2U rackmount Linux servers."

"Scalable to 2.1 terabytes in an ultradense 8U form factor, the 9205 NAS provides industry-leading storage density--over 10TB in a standard 42U rack--providing the ideal network file sharing solution for e-businesses in ISP data centers, where space is at a premium. The VA Linux 9205 NAS offers seamless file sharing across multiple platforms--Linux, UNIX, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS--enabling transparent file access in heterogeneous network environments."

"VA Linux is bringing the power of Open Source software--reliability, innovation and reduced costs--to the NAS market," said Ali Jenab, senior vice president and general manager of VA Linux's Systems Division. "E-businesses today need to manage and store more data than ever before, and Open Source is the key to keeping up with this rapid pace.
