iSCSI NAS Mac storage
DNF Storage today joined Bell Microproducts to launch StorMacX iSCSI and NAS storage systems for Apple enterprise customers. The new storage systems are expected to sell through more than 1,300 independent Apple-authorized resellers across the U.S. in two forms: the StorMacXXi100 unified network attached storage (NAS) and StorMacX i4000S/i4000D. The StorMacXXi100 iSCSI system supports up to 30TB of storage as well as three Xserve RAID devices, while the StorMacX i4000S/i4000D supports up to 100TB of storage and 10 Xserve RAID devices. DNF's StorMacX systems are available from $22,000 for a 10TB configuration.
"DNF's StorMacX gives Apple business customers the enterprise storage capabilities that they need -- such as advanced synchronous mirroring, replication, storage provisioning, clustering and 10G Ethernet connectivity -- in two flexible solutions that support heterogeneous environments," said Mo Tahmasebi, CEO of DNF. "We are very pleased to be joining forces with Bell Microproducts to leverage their long history of storage expertise as well as their strong Apple reseller network to make a big impact with StorMacX."
