With the release of Symantec Storage Foundation 6.1, Symantec Cluster File System HA enables customers to take internal storage and "share" that storage across any node in the cluster with the Flexible Storage Sharing (FSS) feature. FSS drastically reduces the OPEX associated with setting up a multi-node environment while providing the same storage management and high availability functionality assocated with SFCFS, but across all-DAS infrastructures.
The advanced FSS technology when coupled with high peformance Solid-State Drives from Intel® combine to provide:
• 4X performance @ ~80% reduction in the cost of SAN
• 90%+ Oracle® Log Writer transactions at under 1 ms
• Full availability and redundancy of internal solid-state drives
See the attached whitepaper for more details on how Symantec and Intel can bring high performance and high availibility to an all-DAS environment through intelligent software and hardware.
