Sanbolic Inc. announced Tuesday the release of the latest versions
of its Windows file system and volume manager solutions, Melio File
System (FS) 2.0 and LaScala 2.0.
Melio FS 2.0 is a symmetrical 64-bit clustered file system designed
for high-availability and clustered computing environments. Enhancements
and new functionalities include up to a four-time increase in file
system performance and support for nearly unlimited file system
size, the Watertown, Mass.-based company said in a statement. Melio
FS now utilizes Microsoft Windows infrastructure technologies such
as Distributed File System, Network Load Balancing, and Microsoft
iSCSI initiator. Melio FS also utilizes fault-tolerant and redundancy
components of Windows such as the Microsoft Multipath I/O (MPIO).
Native Windows security and support for Microsoft Active Directory
are implemented as well.
LaScala is a host-based volume manager incorporating technology
used in Melio FS, including transaction management, locking and
clustering technology, which simplifies management and improves
flexibility and reliability of shared storage environments, the
company said. Sanbolic's Melio FS and LaScala volume manager allow
active-active access to shared files on SAN storage, enabling multiple
user access to their critical data in high-availability architectures.
Sanbolic's solutions support Microsoft Windows 2000 Server,
Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Server 2003, including Windows
Server 2003 R2. http://www.sanbolic.com
