Not sure if is along the lines of what you need, but but a few years
back I found a company that allowed multiple machines to connec to a box
and all the machines would just see it as a SCSI device. You would
allocate how much space each attached machine could see.
What are you looking for?
Share space amongst many machines? Likely a box that supports NFS.
Have a single device where to store all the data, but not necessarily
share data amongst machines? What I describe above may be a good choice.
Also wouldn't a big raid connected to a FreeBSD machine do the trick?
Would safe you lots of money. Anything that has the letters "SAN", "NAS"
has a premiun.
Also are you looking for SAN or NAS
My understanding of those...
SAN - multiple machines attached to a device. The device just appears as
a disk. No info sharing.
NAS - multiple machines see a device and can share information. The
device supports different communication methods such as NFS, SMB, etc..
