LeftHand Networks has added a new member to its family of storage-area network offerings, giving organizations more flexibility as they deploy SANs across corporate data centers, regional and remote offices.
LeftHand provides a family of Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) SANs that distribute and protect data across a cluster of storage servers. The latest addition, the NSM 2120, provides advanced data protection, centralized management capabilities and improved performance for virtualized server environments.
The company's storage products are used by many federal, state and local government agencies, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Ogden, Utah.
LeftHand kicked off the expansion of its product line last month with the NSM 4150 and NSM 2060 that employ ' like the NSM 2120 ' the company's SAN/IQ management software. All the company's storage products include advanced thin provisioning, distributed clustering, synchronous multisite SAN replication and asynchronous remote copy replication capabilities.
The NSM 2120 provides up to 9 terabytes of storage capacity in a two-unit form factor and is available in five configurations, each with 12 hot-swappable disk drives. The NSM 2120 is available now with prices starting at $22,000.
