Sanbolic’s Clustered File System Adds Support for NFS Scale Out and Improved Virtual Disk Performance
Dallas (BUSINESS WIRE) 14 October 2008
Sanbolic’s Melio clustered file system now supports extended attributes, so that scale of NFS services. Melio has also improved performance for pass through block storage applications such as virtual disk files.
Melio FS is already used for scale CIFS-based file services from Windows file servers by to read and write multiple file servers from a single file system on a SAN volume. Clients on the network see a single file system, although each of the file server can be accessed in the cluster. The addition of extended attributes enables scale-out clusters of Windows file server for NFS file services as well. This solution uses native Windows tools such as Network Load Balancing. “Scale-out File Services by using low-cost commodity clusters hardware industry is becoming increasingly important as a file-based storage is now the fastest growing segment of enterprise storage,” said Noemi Greyzdorf, storage analyst at IDC.
Sanbolic has also added capacity, through the assistance of block objects such as virtual disk files without a file system overhead. “Server virtualization is enabling a dependence on shared storage for virtual machine availability and migration and virtual server performance is very dependent on storage performance. Sanbolic dramatic performance block by objects such as virtual hard drives, and has to pass performance monitoring and quality increase of service tools embedded in the file system, “said Momchil Michailov, founder of Sanbolic. “This makes Melio FS an ideal product for enabling shared SAN storage for virtual environments.”
Sanbolic’s Melio file cluster file system and LaScala clustered volume manager install easily on physical or virtual servers and can use any Fibre Channel or iSCSI storage hardware. Windows Active Directory, DFS, and clustering features are supported.
Sanbolic software currently supports Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008, including Server Core. Sanbolic distributes its product solutions worldwide through a network of distributors, OEMs, VARs and system integrators.
