Symantec Unveils FileStore
Haven't dug much into FileStore, a new cloud based product from Symantec, but apparently it has been released to the public. Anyone know anything about?
From the artilce: "FileStore is comprised of software-based appliances that run on commodity x86 server nodes and talk to clients using CIFS, FTP, HTTP or NFS. On the back-end, the FileStore nodes aggregate existing Fibre Channel and iSCSI SANs and JBODs as a shared storage pool. A FileStore system can scale up to 16 nodes and 2PB of total capacity."
Also more from the article: "The company is currently using FileStore to manage its own cloud services, with more than 40PB of online storage for more than 9 million users"
Don't know exactly what is going on, but you can find out more on the official site
