metaSAN iSCSI enables multiple servers to share access to a common iSCSI Target volume. It delivers all the same true SAN shared storage benefits as metaSAN, but tailored solution that leverages cost-effective Gigabit Ethernet technology in conjunction with JetStor iSCSI RAID units.
iSCSI storage technology has gained a lot of momentum thanks to its ease of integration. Whether you need to create Active/Active or Active/Passive setups, metaSAN iSCSI represents a cost-effective solution for adding failover capability to web servers, Microsoft Cluster Services, or VMware virtual machines.
In the past, DCC professionals interested in collaborative production, yet challenged with limited budgets, faced specialized and expensive options or had little choice but to turn to NAS for shared storage as a lower cost alternative to Fibre Channel-based SAN. metaSAN iSCSI solves this dilemma by leveraging iSCSI's inherent low protocol overhead; allowing for more efficient use of the Gigabit Ethernet. This translates directly into higher effective bandwidth and increased performance, enabling the delivery of true SAN shared storage benefits at a comparable NAS price point.
metaSAN iSCSI is compatible with standard iSCSI Initiators (computers) and Targets (shared storage) and prevents data corruption by arbitrating simultaneous accesses. Hardware and software agnostic, metaSAN iSCSI allows companies to easily customize their SAN environments to accommodate very particular workflow needs, both from a technical and budgetary perspective.
metaSAN iSCSI is ideally suited for digital content creation production professionals in film, video and broadcast and IT specialists at small and mid-sized facilities handling large files who require an affordable, flexible and high-speed true SAN shared storage environment.
