Sanbolic has demonstrated the ability of it's Melio Cluster File System and LaScala volume manager to add additional capability to the new HP All-in-One Storage System.

Sanbolic's Melio File System (FS) and LaScala volume manager enable end users to aggregate multiple HP All-in-One Storage Systems, presenting a single file system and namespace for file serving and/or a large iSCSI storage pool. I/O performance scales with additional All-in-One Storage Systems, which can utilize both internal drives and external storage arrays for storage capacity. Melio FS also enables multiple application servers to concurrently access data on the All-in-One Storage System iSCSI SAN.

Sanbolic's software also utilizes Microsoft Windows Storage technology, so users can continue operating in a familiar Windows environment.
