In keeping with our goals of dependability and stability, Great Lakes SAN has chosen a core platform that also personifies these ideals: FreeBSD. Also implemented on many of the core routers, switches, and much of the supporting internet infrastructure utilized in our system, FreeBSD is consistently battle tested and habitually proved reliable and stable. Great Lakes SAN's reliability, dependability, and stability are all primary functions of our host platform.
Keeping our fleet in alert status requires constant monitoring of threats. Great Lakes SAN is constantly probing our fleet for security flaws and monitoring US-Cert's threat notices for potential breaches. If a threat is detected, Great Lakes SAN will send out a notification of the threat level and a few potential times for maintenance windows.
