MetaSAN for Tiger

Earlier this month, Tiger Technology announced the release 2.1 of its flagship MetaSAN software, which brought support for Mac OS X 10.4 as well as an innovative File Sequence Optimizer (Linux/Windows) and a high-performance Dynamic Disk Optimizer (Windows-only). The company touts the product as an alternative to Apple Xsan for users of Final Cut Pro. MetaSAN is a SAN management solution for Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and Gigabit Ethernet networks, offering high-speed file sharing for workgroup collaboration. MetaSAN and MetaLAN support Windows, Mac OS X , and Linux platforms. MetaSAN licenses are priced at $1,000, while MetaLAN licenses are priced at $300.

"Between its Panther and Tiger releases, Apple has made many significant changes - mostly undocumented - to its file system. This gave us, and a number of other storage-related manufacturers a lot of grief," notes Lefterov. "But unless Apple goes through another round of significant changes, we should be able to catch up with their subsequent releases much faster, like we've always done!"

Designed for bandwidth-intensive applications, MetaSAN enables multiple users to share access to common data files in workgroups; it is fully compatible with standard applications including Adobe Digital Video Collection and Apple Final Cut Pro . In addition, the Avid Unity MediaFile virtualization feature enables efficient collaboration among multiple users of Avid software. The company said its solution also supports leading vendors of SAN technology including ADTX, Atto, IBM , Cirprico/Huge Systems, Emulex, LSI, Qlogic and Seagate.
