NAS

I am looking for detailed paper, links and information on clients that manage NAS devices like filers, gfilers, EMC NAS devices etc.

I already have white papers from NetAPP regarding their filer. I DO NOT need that.

I want information on NAS devices and software that manage NAS devices.

Thanks

Go to

http://www.emc.com/products/networking/servers/index.jsp

for EMC's NAS kit. The keywords to watch out for are Celerra and the NS and NetWin series. The NS are based around EMC's Clariion SAN arrays and the Celerra around the DMX (from memory). The NetWin is also Clariion based. Good stuff!

Just or clarification, the Celerra and NetWin are the two EMC NAS products.  The Celerra comes in an NS version (mid-range,) which is an Intel-based unit with up to four NAS servers inside.  There is also a CNS version (larger) which is also Intel-based and can support up to 14 servers inside.  Both the NS and CNS can attach to Clariion and Symmetrix/DMX storage, and do not come with their own internal storage.  The NetWin is also Intel based, but comes with internal storage, and is the lower end product.

Thanks for the information. But obviously I am looking for something more than this. Like I said I already have enough material and infoirmation on EMC, NetAPP white papers that deal with their own products and devices.
I am looking for information on managing those device or rather managining NAS devices.
Ex. Celerra is a web based management software. Details on that or similar products.

this is a broad question...many companies like HP/Dell use WSS03, the Windows based NAS box and EMC (as you know) has one as well.  These are all manage very similarly through MS's web interface for NAS.

BlueArc has a high end nas box, NetApp has several...and these are proprietary management and architectures...

 EMC's NetWin 200 uses its own web-based interface - not MS's. The reason is that the web front-end also controls Navisphere (the storage management software).

For the Celerra, you have three choices:

1.  You can use the Command Line Interface, which is linux based and allows you to do bash scripting of commands.  This helps when you have to create a large number of filesystems and such.  You need SSH or telnet.  Telnet is disabled by default.

2.  There is a web interface, called the Celerra Manager.  The Celerra has it's own Apache web server, and the latest version (5.3.11.4) is a giant leap above the version 4.x and below.

3.  EMC still supports MMC snap-ins, which allow you to manage shares and security, but you can't use it to create filesystems or do administrative work on the Celerra.

Thanks. I already know about the products. That;s not I am asking here.
I want details as in white papers or related documents explaining features about these products.
