Last week Scalable Informatics announced their siCluster NAS scale-out network attached storage product.

The siCluster NAS provides NFS, CIFS, and GlusterFS client access.

With up to 800MB/s bandwidth and a storage capacity ranging from 10 Tbytes to multiple Petabytes, the siCluster NAS has a notable list price of under $1,000 per Terabyte.
