“The BeaST Grid” is a work name of the reliable storage cluster concept. It will consist of a few Controller Nodes with optional internal drives and several Drive only Nodes. All nodes are commodity computers with internal drives.
Controller Nodes will also be able to work in driveless, standalone mode and therefore may be used as storage virtualizators for other storage systems.
First version of the BeaST Grid will be based on the BeaST Classic with RAID system.
