HIGH AVAILABILITY SAN APPLIANCE FOR APPLE XSERVE RAID
 
Vmirror™ is a family of high-availability SAN appliances tailored specifically for use with Apple's Xserve, Xserve RAID, Apple-compatible storage systems, and Xsan software. Used with an Apple SAN, Vmirror creates a cost-effective, high-availability storage solution comparable to mid-range enterprise storage systems - with simple administration and 1/3 the cost. Even better, Vmirror delivers instantaneous failover in the event of a component or RAID outage, ensuring services from video and IT applications continue uninterrupted.

Whether you're supporting multi-user access to a large database or streaming high-definition video data, operations continue while host systems make a seamless, transparent shift with nointerruption of service.
 
Applications

Large and small organizations alike in broadcast, advertising, and publishing use Vmirror to protect and guarantee access to their data. Today, NFL Films, Korea Broadcasting, Associated Press, the Richards Group, Transcontinental, the New York Times, and local television stations use Vmirror for post-production, broadcast, and business-critical file server applications.
