      The Bull OS robustness add-on
    Modern Operating Systems, including Windows™ and multiple flavours of UNIX™, directly include in their core software a basic disk access failover environment that is the starting point to address these needs. The generic name of “Multipathing Framework” is used for this environment. This environment needs modules to complete the basic OS framework. Bull has a charter to ease, simplify and stabilize SAN infrastructures, putting on the market a coherent set of modules removing the compatibility hassle.

      Linux focus for the Bull StoreWay storage products
    Starting with Linux kernel version 2.6, the open-source community has added the multipathing environment into the Linux kernel as an extension of the new I/O architecture (“device-mapper” architecture).
    Within the Bull’s StoreWay offer, the StoreWay Multipath for Linux product is a Bull-made module that perfectly fits into this device-mapper framework to bring ease of installation and configuration, as well as fully tested integration with the Bull StoreWay storage products.

      A High-end high-available product
    A high-end SCSI reservation feature complements the standard Linux kernel and distribution environment; to bring the Linux I/O stack features to the same level of functionality as other high-end Unix systems, allowing strict data protection needed by clustering and high availability software.

      Data protection and boot
    As StoreWay Multipath is supporting boot, data and Linux OS are protected enabling continuous access.
