BW: VA Linux Forges Ahead in the Network Attached Storage Market With Open Source Storage Appliance

“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.
VA Linux is
re-defining the storage market by bringing scalable Open Source NAS
solutions to our customers, and backing them with an extensive,
best-of-class service and support package.”
