NavigateStorage has Unified Storage

Unified Storage is a single, integrated storage infrastructure that functions as unification engines to simultaneously support Fibre Channel, IP Storage Area Networks (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) data formats.

A unified storage system simultaneously enables storage of file data and handles the block-based I/O (input/output) of enterprise applications. In actual practice, unified storage is often implemented in a NAS platform that is modified to add block-mode support.

One advantage of unified storage is reduced hardware requirements. Instead of separate storage platforms, like NAS for file-based storage and a RAID disk array for block-based storage, unified storage combines both modes in a single device. Alternatively, a single device could be deployed for either file or block storage as required.

NavigateStorage specializes in all types of storage.  Check us out.

NavigateStorage offers a clutered file system

Melio FS is a clustered file system designed specifically for SAN storage environments. It provides shared access to data on a SAN from multiple servers, enabling high availability, horizontal scaling of applications, and greatly simplified storage provisioning and management for virtual server environments. Users gain extensive new capability to utilize industry standard shared storage hardware, yet it is very simple to use.
