Openfiler is a powerful, Linux-powered, intuitive
browser-based network storage management
appliance. It delivers file-based network attached
storage (NAS) and block-based storage area
networking (SAN) in a single framework.
NFS client access was fine-tuned on a per-network
basis by setting options such as wdelay, sync, and
origin port. The CIFS options were enhanced to
enable enhanced application compatibility.
Multiple bonded NIC configurations can be created
to improve performance. Multiple iSCSI targets can
be created and LUNs and snapshots can be mapped.
