University of Aberdeen simplifies storage with Nas system

Antony Savvas

The University of Aberdeen has implemented ExaNet's ExaStore clustered network attached storage (Nas) software to support and simplify storage management.

The system is designed to support multiple protocols and to allocate storage more easily with greater flexibility.

The university’s computing environment incorporates a variety of platforms, including Linux, Unix and Windows, so it needed a system that could unite all the divergent protocols into a single-file system for concurrent access by thousands of users.

“What really sold ExaStore to us was its ability to provide load-balanced, concurrent, full access from both our network file system and common internet file system,” said Alan Benson, Aberdeen University’s server infrastructure manager.
