LeftHand Helps Spin Straw Into Gold


Alright, no actual transmutation occurs, but LeftHand Networks can help customers repurpose existing x86 storage into iSCSI SANs with their Virtual SAN Appliance (VSA) for ESX.


The concept is simple, the execution novel. LeftHand Networks leverages their SAN/iQ software platform to convert unused internal storage on existing VMware Infrastructure 3 servers into a clustered iSCSI SAN. Are you mildly bitter about those unused or underutilized drives in your ESX boxes? LeftHand wants you to create a virtual SAN out of ‘em.


I spent yesterday morning attending a sales briefing presented by LeftHand highlighting their iSCSI product line and SAN/iQ software. The company has been around since 1999; they were in iSCSI at the ground floor in 2001, they have many x86-based storage options and a strong customer base. Their main product line has offerings from 6TB to 100TB SAS SANs, and they have a snazzy single-pane tool for managing all products. It seems they haven’t had the best marketing machine. Depending on who you ask, the company is named after a picturesque valley in Colorado. Or a brewpub in Denver.
