Apple introduced Xsan 2, the first major upgrade to its enterprise class Storage Area Network (SAN) file system for Mac OS X.

Apple Xsan 2 makes it easier for first time users to set up and quickly deploy a SAN; introduces MultiSAN, allowing users on a single workstation to access multiple SANs at the same time; is fully integrated with Mac OS X Leopard and Mac OS X Server Leopard and is now qualified to work with third-party RAID storage.
For the first time, Xsan 2 has been qualified with third-party RAID storage hardware. Along with Apple's Xserve RAID, Xsan 2 supports third- party RAID solutions from Promise Technology in configurations tuned and optimized for Xsan, Mac OS X Server and Apple's professional applications.

Xsan 2 is available immediately through the Apple Store and through Apple Authorized Resellers for a suggested retail price of $999 per node.

Apple has qualified Xsan 2 with Xserve, Mac(R) Pro and Apple Fibre Channel PCI-X cards. Xsan 2 requires Mac OS X version 10.5 or Mac OS X Server version 10.5 software installed and will support qualified Fibre Channel switches from vendors such as Brocade, QLogic and Cisco, and RAID storage hardware including Xserve RAID and Promise VTrak E-Class RAID subsystems.
