Wring More Value Out Of Your Storage

Software from Teracloud lets customers make more efficient use of resources

Teracloud Corp. knows how to manage high-end storage attached to mainframes and Unix servers. Now the storage-management software vendor wants to manage storage appliances, too.

TeraCloud last week added support for network-attached storage devices into its SpaceNet storage-management software and initially is working with major NAS vendors, including Auspex, EMC, and Network Appliance. SpaceNet 3.0 is designed to let customers make more-efficient use of current resources to put off further storage purchases. The software also aims to protect files sent across an IP network from packet loss, as well as increase application uptime and move files easily and quickly between different NAS appliances.

TeraCloud has an edge over storage-management software vendors that are trying to move up from managing network-attached storage devices to mainframe and Unix server storage, says Mike Karp, an analyst at Enterprise Management Associates. The vendor has packed a lot of functionality into its product. "These guys put it all into a single interface," Karp says, "including monitoring, root-cause analysis, [problem] hot spots, and [storage] utilization."
