Aberdeen Virtualizes its Storage Area Network

By DE Editors

Server and storage manufacturer Aberdeen LLC has released the SAN Virtual Appliance (SAN-VA) Plugin to its AberSAN scalable storage platform.

The AberSAN combines Fibre Channel and iSCSI block level connections with multi-user network sharing. The Aberdeen SAN-VA Plugin provides a virtual SAN on a VMware ESX server by using internal disk resources on an AberSAN into a shareable pool of storage.

The AberSAN scalable storage platform incorporates the ZFS file system, powered by NexentaStor. Aberdeen says it designed the AberSAN to grow as an organization’s storage needs multiply by removing storage and partition size limitations to deliver ease of use and flexibility.

An 8TB AberSAN scalable appliance with SAN-VA starts at $12,995 MSRP and larger models can be custom configured up to the 132TB AberSAN Z80.
