Coraid today announced that 2Frost Software has released an AoE (ATA over Ethernet) driver for Mac OS X. This new driver enables a “significant” breakthrough in cost and scalability of storage for the Mac platform. The companies have teamed up to release a commercial version of AoE that delivers virtually limitless storage for Mac OS X users. “Mac users now have a new option for networked storage that allows them to scale their storage for well below $1 per Gigabyte,” said Jim Kemp, CEO of Coraid. “By teaming with 2Frost Software we have been able to extend all of the same cost breakthroughs and benefits of EtherDrive Storage to the data intensive applications of Mac OS X users. Extending AoE support to Mac OS X provides customers a new choice in proven, high-quality storage technology.” Introductory pricing is US$159 for the Client edition, and $319 for the Server edition.
