    Anyone have any experience in using the Active Storage solutions for their RAIDs?

    Looks like an interesting product launch happening on Monday to coincide with the end of the Xserve.

    Apparently, the guys that run this company are ex-apple who used to design the Xserve and Xsan and who left when they started to drop the Xsan line.

    Interesting for those who use apple Xsan and Xserve and looking for suitable replacements. See what Monday brings.
