According to the specifications and datasheets, the storage appliance appears to be a packaged version of already-available open source technology that supports the same range of hardware as the centos/RHEL distributions. All of those datasheet characteristics, including deduplication and other features, seem to be accomplished with ZFS. - However, I can't find any references to ZFS anywhere.
Really nothing spectacular here, in my opinion. This may be composed on already-existing GNU software (rsync, etc.), but they've packed it with a nice web interface and verified it to make it simpler for non-linux experts to use.
Has anyone ever attempted this? Is this type of what you would expect from a Linux-based storage server platform, or am I missing the boat and there really is some secret sauce put in?
