Sanbolic’s products have been designed expressly for storage environments using SAN storage and enable customer to easily manage networked storage as a single pool of data that can be accessed by multiple servers concurrently, greatly reducing complexity and giving users much more flexibility in how they can access their data. The design point for these products was a large telecom network operation center application running multiple operating systems. The product architecture has been designed to support multiple operating systems and storage hardware platforms in a very large environment demanding very high reliability. Even with their extensive capabilities, our products are exceptionally easy to install and use.
