We've got our brand new NetApp SAN in place and have been putting it through it's paces. Overall, it will allow us to offer high speed (15k RPM SAS drives + 1TB of solid state cache) and high availability (2N head-end redundancy + N+2 drive redundancy) storage to our dedicated and colocation customers, while also forming the backbone of our new cloud and backup services. Right now, things are still early, but I want to give everyone a heads-up that these services will start coming available over the coming weeks. Note: Our NetApp based SAS and SATA enterprise storage solutions are now available!
I should have more news on the new offerings and pricing in the next week or so. Right now, we're hoping to provide iSCSI and NFS options in the $0.30 per GB range, with no extra bandwidth or utilization fees for use on our own network. We understand the importance of a dependable storage solution and are thus proud to be using a well known and trusted vendor such as NetApp for our storage solutions. Note: The new NetApp based Enterprise Storage SAN and NAS offerings are now publicly available. It is $0.30 per GB for 15k RPM SAS based storage and $0.20 per GB for SATA based storage. There is no price difference between SAN (iSCSI) or NAS (NFS).
