FRAMINGHAM (10/03/2003) - Candera Inc. last week announced a clustered storage controller that joins multiple heterogeneous storage-area networks into a single storage area network (SAN) with a common management interface. The SCE 510 Cluster includes two hardware nodes configured in an active-active configuration to protect from failure. With 16 Fibre Channel ports per cluster, they connect to SAN devices and host. The Candera Storage Manager software, which is used to manage the cluster, is a Java-based graphical user interface that runs on Microsoft, Solaris or Linux workstations. With the Candera Storage Manager, administrators can provision, adjust and migrate storage based on user-defined policies. The Candera SCE 510 Cluster is priced starting at US$120,000.
