Network-attached storage vendor ONStor and storage-area network vendor 3Par recently said they have joined forces to deliver an offering that combines the best of both of their technologies.

The new UtiliCat is a unified file- and block-level device that lets customers view their SAN and NAS from a single management interface.

Both ONStor and 3Par support the box and use a common support line. The UtiliCat consists of a two- to four-node cluster of ONStar Bobcat NAS gateways connected to two to eight 3Par InServ block controllers per cluster for a capacity of 2.5TB to 384TB. As many as four to 400 file systems can be supported per cluster.

A UtiliCat with 2.5TB of capacity starts at US$175,000.
