Clariion bundles remote mirroring
Aiming at storage area network (SAN) environments, Clariion last month began shipments of a remote mirroring solution that encompasses software, hardware, and services. The software works with the company`s FC5700, FC5500, and FC3500 Fibre Channel disk arrays. Mirroring provides data duplication at remote sites, which can be located up to 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) from the primary site.
The mirroring software runs on Windows NT and Sun Solaris platforms, with support for IBM AIX and HP-UX due in the next few months. The solution works with existing mirroring packages such as Sun Enterprise Volume Manager, Veritas Volume Manager and the Windows NT Disk Administrator. Pricing for the Clariion Remote Mirroring starts at $75,000, including host bus adapters and interconnecting hardware.
