Flexible utility storage
Using a Linux platform, 3PAR Inc. of Fremont, Calif., has created a flexible utility storage solution. The 3PAR InServ Storage Server is a modular, Linux-based server that enables it to scale centralized data environments. Key to the design is a passive, full-mesh backplane that unifies multiple system resources for simple administration and automatic load balancing.
The U.S. Center for Economic Studies recently purchased the InServ Storage Server, 3PAR officials said.
Using the 3PAR system, CES officials have been able to scale its centralized data environments by three times to 35 terabytes.
