ABSTRACT
This article discusses the emergence of clustering in the network attached storage (NAS) sector. NAS stalwarts keep introducing bigger and faster monolithic NAS boxes, but the competition is increasingly turning to another architectural model: clustering. On the traditional side is Network Appliance (NetApp), with its newest line of NAS products, the FAS3000 family. NetApp announced the midrange FAS3020 and FAS3050 which fall between the 56-drive FAS270 and the 672-drive FAS960. But for all their features, the NAS establishment's latest offerings have left some industry observers and potential customers, cold. The latest NAS offerings of EMC embraces clustering, but only to a point. The Celerra NSX gateway is designed to front EMC Clariion and Symmetrix disk arrays, and comprises up to eight so-called X-Blades. Hewlett-Packard (HP) is licensing PolyServe's File Serving Solution 3.0 (FSS), an extension to its Matrix Server shared file system software. The result is the new StorageWorks Enterprise File Services NAS platform of HP. With its roots in the Linux marketplace, PolyServe has had success in large scale-out computing environments such as the U.S. Department of Defense, where FSS serves up files to a 300-node compute cluster.
