File sharing among UNIX servers - PRIMECLUSTER

PRIMECLUSTER provides file sharing between multiple Solaris OS server nodes[1]. This means in SAN environments any connected server can access the same ETERNUS AF/ETERNUS DX. This used to be very difficult as there were no mechanisms to enabled UNIX servers to share storage file access while maintaining data consistency. The combination of PRIMECLUSTER and ETERNUS now makes it possible for each server to access data directly without specific server restrictions or effects on LAN communications, while achieving seamless access performance.

File Sharing PRIMECLUSTER

Please refer to "Specifications" on each product's information page for the maximum number of connection paths supported.

  • [1] The maximum number of nodes depends on the servers and OS versions used.

Benefits

  • Data exchange between servers can be achieved just by sharing a file. LAN based file transfer is not necessary
  • Management of servers running the same application can be centralized by sharing application resources. This results in lower total cost of ownership (TCO)
