Rackable Systems has announced that it is looking to sell off its RapidScale line of clustered storage systems and I/O connectivity products as a means of finding "strategic alternatives" for the unit.

 

Rackable had purchased the RapidScale systems for about $40 million only two years ago, but apparently has decided that it does not provide a good enough fit with the company's remaining Linux- and Windows-based server and storage products.

 

The RapidScale line includes a parallel storage clustering system capable of near-linear scaling, as well as the Distributed Parity Engine global file management system. The unit also holds a number of patents governing local client cache buffer management, device failure protection and recovery and shared medium data management.

 

The sale will be handled by Strategic Advisory Services International.
