Who needs a DeLorean and its one point twenty-one jiggawatts when you can have a GigaStor SAS, which stores 288 TERABYTES of network data?
According to a press release from Network Instruments, GigaStor “is the largest retrospective network analysis (RNA) platform available for storing and capturing network packets and transactions for later analysis and investigation.” Network Instruments said that the vast capacity was needed as more networks tap into 10 Gigabit Ethernet, particularly for those companies with larger data centers. The appliance was originally designed for a military customer, according to the company, who needed to store a month’s worth of networking data.
