LeftHand Networks SAN/iQ 7 review
Typical markets for iSCSI storage applications are SMBs and mid-range enterprises - the types of business that don't have deep pockets or aren't already locked in to expensive FC SANs. The list of supported platforms really needs to be expanded but we found SAN/IQ easy to install, deploy and manage and were impressed with its extreme expansion capabilities. The starting price may initially seen high but bear in mind that this includes a range of features many competing vendors will charge extra for. Another bonus is SAN/iQ supports VMware's ESX Server allowing clusters to be built from virtual machines. In fact, this is proving so popular that LeftHand advised us that VMware storage virtualisation now accounts for around half its sales.
LeftHand Networks shows off everything that's good about iSCSI with a virtual storage solution that includes a quality range of features in the base product, easy management and almost limitless expansion possibilities.
