Tricord Systems Inc. announced immediate availability of its Lunar Flare(TM) NAS server appliance, now shipping in limited availability to customers and channel partners.
To support shipments and future orders, Tricord said it has added on-line ordering, automated customer support, and a web portal resource for channel partners on its web site.
Calling Lunar Flare NAS the first "clustered" server appliance, Tricord said the product is a scalable, high availability general file serving storage device that is easily deployed in a network. Enabled by Tricord's patented Illumina(TM) aggregation software, multiple Lunar Flare NAS appliances aggregate to create a cluster, managed as a single resource.
The company said each 129GB Lunar Flare unit will list for $5,700.00, including 1-year warranty and service. Lunar Flare NAS is distributed through Tricord's select channel partners, or available for purchase on-line through the Tricord web site. Tricord and its channel partners are also offering a 'try-before-you-buy' program to allow qualified customers to try the product for a limited time with no cost or obligation.
