Network Storage Solutions Introduces Journaling File System
Network Storage Solutions (NSS), a provider of high-performance network attached storage (NAS) systems, announced the release of Version 4 of its SPANStor(TM) NAS operating system.
The new release features a journaling file system (JFS) and support for Failover functions between primary and secondary servers. NSS said both are critically important to companies requiring fast and uninterrupted access to corporate data and files.
Designed to deliver high throughput as well as enhanced client performance and reliability, SPANStor with JFS provides a scalable, log-based file system for high performance systems. According to NSS, JFS also offers users improved structural consistency, uncorrupted data recovery, and faster restart times than non-journaled file systems in the event of system failure. Its quick restart capability can restore a file system to a consistent state in a matter of seconds.
"JFS provides our users with even better structural consistency, uncorrupted data recoverability, and faster restart times," said Brad Clemmons, president and CEO of Network Storage Solutions. "Adding JFS is further validation of NSS' commitment to providing highly scalable, robust, enterprise-class performing NAS appliances at the most affordable price points on the market."
