Is there anyone who is using Infortrent EonNas in High Availability configuration? Their systems are based on OpenIndiana with ZFS, which is very interesting. Do you know, how they implement active-active HA? Are they using RSF-1 as other on ZFS based systems (like Nexenta) or they have some other implementation?

What are your experience with their HA solution?

Thank you.

have not used EonNas stuff but I use a bunch of their FC attached EonStor products and they have been excellent... their management software can be a bit clumsy but their hardware has been a dream to work with... it actually does what I expect it to do, and sometimes even things I don't expect (in a good way)

To avoid repeating myself, here are a few of my posts about Infortrend (note; not the same product line you're requesting but the most egregious issues were with how the company handled our issues):

I also have a few EonStor units that have been going strong for a long time (anyone know where to get a PSU for an old EonStor that isn't a complete ripoff?) - but I haven't needed support on them and they're long out of warranty anyway.

Not exaggerating that it was the worst IT experience I've ever had and a part of why I distrust vendors and choose open source when I can.
