3.9 Metior




Description

This article is from the storage FAQ part2, by Rodney D. Van Meter with numerous contributions by others.

3.9 Metior

    Metior (pronounced like meteor) is targetting an incredibly broad
market, from laptops with removable media through supercomputers, with
prices from $650(!) to $118K. They handle multiple coordinated copies,
so off-site backup can be automatic. Can do migration for client
machines (with appropriate software licenses and changes to the file
system). The hierarchy seems to be extremely flexible, variable on a
per-user or per-group basis. Machines without client licenses can
mount the Metior FS using NFS. Runs on Suns, SGI, and HP 9000/700. ANT
is new, and they've only got a handful of customers so far, but it
looks very interesting.
