Sistina™, a developer of software products that enable sharing of data and dramatically reduce storage costs, today announced the release of version 5.0 of its award-winning Global File System (GFS). Sistina's GFS™ is an advanced clustered file system that allows multiple servers on a Storage Area Network (SAN) to have concurrent read and write access to a shared data pool.
Sistina's GFS 5.0 was engineered to provide functionality critical to enterprise-class data centers. This set of enhancements includes: advanced installation and cluster configuration tools to greatly reduce implementation time, Dynamic Multi-Path support in the pool volume manager to tolerate single path failures, a shared root file system which provides ease of use and lowers managements costs, performance enhancements with additional lock managers, and better support for third-party snapshot capabilities.
