Xsan shipping delays
Apple said today that it will for shipping its Xsan storage management software, according to CNET News.com. The $1,000 product, which serves as a file system for storage gear, was scheduled to launch by Monday, the last day of autumn, but has been held back. "Xsan will not ship this year; it will ship early next year," Apple said. The company would not say what caused the delay. The product is designed to further Apple's position in the clustering market. Xsan allows multiple computers to concurrently access terabytes worth of storage housed on Xserve RAID disks, Apple's rack-mounted storage system.
