The majority of business storage products offer NAS and IP SAN services but the mighty Igloo 2U-60T-STOR from Boston goes one step beyond. Along with a massive capacity, the Igloo presents a truly unified storage solution as it combines NAS, IP SAN and FC SAN operations in the same appliance.

The Igloo is a partnership of Supermicro hardware and Open-E' Data Storage Server (DSS) v7 software. A neat feature of this team is all three storage services comes as standard and the price includes Open-E's unlimited capacity license so you can expand as much as you want.

The 2U chassis provides 12 LFF hot-swap bays at the front along with an internal four-drive tray located above the motherboard. There's more as alongside the dual 1kW hot-plug PSUs at the back are two more SFF drives bays which are dedicated to running the DSS software.

The Igloo offers plenty of processing power as it's equipped with a 2.4GHz E5-2630 v3 Xeon with room for a second if you want. A healthy 64GB of DDR4 memory is also included and this can be increased to a maximum of 1TB.
