Although BlueArc has been known for providing enterprise-class NAS to large-scale enterprise environments, it has developed a product designed to address the needs and budgetary restrictions of midrange IT departments.
The BlueArc Mercury 50 product supports up to 2 cluster nodes, has a storage capacity of up to 1 PB, supports file systems of up to 256 TB, and can handle 700Mbps throughput and 60,000 IOPS.
The BlueArc Mercury 100 product also includes support for 256 TB filesystems, but ups the throughput capabilities to 1,000Mbps and 100,000 IOPS, and can scale up to 2 PB, and up to 8 cluster nodes.
The BlueArc Titan storage systems are dedicated file server appliances with an embedded filesystem for data-intensive applications that require high throughput and IOPS. Delivering superior cost/performance metrics, the BlueArc Titan is an ideal storage system that lowers costs and complexity, and provides users with fast & reliable access to critical data.

Although the BlueArc Titan storage systems are widely known as NAS systems, they are also compatible with SAN protocols, supporting both file and block-level data. These storage systems enable millions of users to be concurrently connected to hundreds of computer nodes, all while delivery performance that cannot be found in traditional storage systems. The BlueArc Titan allows a mixture of Fibre Channel, SATA, and WORM storage to be pooled and tiered onto a single system for enhanced manageability, while supporting the newest disk technologies, and keeping data media that is appropriate to meet business requirements. In addition, the Titan storage systems feature non-disruptive backup & replication, so data can be protected without interrupting access.
