Who the heck is Adva?
A couple of months ago a commenter asked for pricing info on Adva. I’d never heard of them, but as part of some web site work I checked into them.

Turns out they are a fast-growing German-based company specializing in metro-are optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) of Ethernet. WDM runs multiple optical channels over a single fiber using lasers of different colors. A single fiber can carry many high-speed links.

If you are interested in a disaster-tolerant metro area replication using iSCSI and/or NAS you should check them out. And with their price list online you can get budget numbers without the hassle of calling a salesman.

Sepaton is an enterprise de-dup company
I spoke to Sepaton CTO Micky Sandorfiat SNW. BTW, Sepaton is “no tapes” backwards.

Other work
I’m gradually closing comments to older posts in an effort to discourage comment spam. I also moved the consulting content to my TechnoQWAN LLC web site.

What other price lists would you like to see?
No promises, but that is how I learned about Adva.
