I would like to find an NAS system like Snap Server that functions with its own internal OS so that it is not ultimately controlled by the OS in a separate box, that supports RAID 1, and that is also either encrypted at the disk level or that can be whole-disk encrypted by something like PGP Whole Disk Encryption. Does anyone know of such a product?

A Decru DataFort (http://www.decru.com/) will handle the encrypton side for you. My understanding is that it will integrate with most NAS, SAN and tape platforms.

Sun also has an encryption offering.

As suggested by Expert, I change the recommendation to :

I will leave the following recommendation for this question in the Cleanup topic area:
   Split: meyersd {http:#17782252} and husthj  {http:#17783966}

Any objections should be posted here in the next 4 days. After that time, the question will be closed.

My organization uses a storage encryption solution from a vendor called Bloombase to secure our EMC Celerra where we deployed Oracle 10g and file-server. EMC has a page specifically for this http://software.emc.com/microsites/application_portfolio/offerings/Bloombase_Spitfire_StoreSafe.jsp?locale=en_US.
