BlueArc: Adding Efficient Cloning, Replication To Scalable Storage
BlueArc, a San Jose, Calif.-based provider of scalable file storage, used the VMware Partner Exchange to unveil its new BlueArc System Software 8, the latest iteration of its hardware-accelerated file system for massive performance and scalability. BlueArc System Software 8 introduces new cloning and high-speed replication features. With JetClone, multiple copies or clones of single files are made by taking snapshots of that file and storing subsequent differences separately. JetMirror reduces the time needed to replicate large, complex file systems via an object-based file system to more efficiently replicate file- or block-based solutions.
