Our colleagues at LeftHand Networks have been hard at work since the acquisition announcement in October and one of the fruits from their labor was announced last week. New for entry-level customers is the SAS Starter SAN. Based on high-performing SAS drives, this new SAN is ideal for virtual server environments that require more "horsepower" to perform optimally. The higher performance drives help satisfy the I/O needs of virtual environments, while LeftHand's architecture automatically balances data volumes across all disk drives, network connections and processors.

You might also be interested knowing that we have a couple of HP LeftHand Networks blogs. Last week, the team posted a blog about a roadshow in the U.S. and Canada, focused on Disaster Recovery for Virtualized Environments. You can read about it here: http://lefthandnetworks.typepad.com/virtual_view/2009/02/coming-to-a-city-near-youdisaster-recovery-for-virtualized-environment-workshops.html. The other blog is the HP LHN useablity blog. The latest post on the same topic of disaster recovery can be found here: http://lefthandnetworks.typepad.com/usability_corner/2009/02/this-is-not-the-time-to-think-about-your-disaster-recovery-strategy.html.
Over the next several months, we'll integrate the HP LHN blog into our Around the Storage Block blog - but for now, I'll highlight here when there's a new post.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
