HP storage devices offer relief

Hewlett-Packard Co.'s new NetStorage 6000 is designed to tackle two of the

toughest issues facing federal IT managers: uncontrolled data growth and

mixed computing environments.

This network-attached storage device adds raw storage capacities ranging

from 144G to 360G and attaches without disrupting the network operation.

Because they don't connect directly to a file server or rely on one to operate,

NAS devices such as HP's NetStorage 6000 offer an independent, reliable

network-based storage resource. They also help reduce traffic to the file

server, increasing access times for other applications.

NetStorage 6000 is compatible with mixed network environments such as Windows

NT, Windows 95/98, Unix and Linux. It can be installed, configured and managed

through a Web-based administration tool that can be accessed from any network


The NetStorage 6000 uses industry-standard, hot-swappable Redundant

Array of Independent Disks 5 technology for failure protection, and it is

compatible with a variety of different backup solutions, including HP's

DLT Autoloader 818 Tape Library and the Veritas Backup Exec. Available in

May, prices for the NetStorage 6000 will range from $25,500 to $52,000.
