Sanbolic said Kayo is a transparent SAN solution using NTFS, which allows SAN users to read and write to the shared volumes on the centralized storage. The data is transferred from the storage to the server or client workstation over the Fibre Channel network while only command and control communication is transferred over TCP/IP, over either Fibre Channel or Ethernet. The automatic refresh functionality updates all Kayo users when a change is made to a volume.
Charles Palanzo, Director of Product Development for High Velocity Systems notes that "Sanbolic has again raised the bar for other volume sharing software providers with this new release of Kayo. The new easy-to-use interface, multi-volume support, and simple configuration options complement the ease with which the hardware infrastructure can be built using our hubs."http://o1.qnsr.com/log/p.gif?;n=203;c=204655439;s=10655;x=7936;f=201806121855330;u=j;z=TIMESTAMP;a=20400368;e=i "We are pleased to be working with High Velocity Systems to offer their customers a cost effective volume sharing software alternative for SANs.
