Hoping this is not an inappropriate quesiton for this forum (but got no repsponse to a presales contact attempt).  I'm in a new environment where there is an existing backend array (non-HDS) but the existing NFS server needs to be replaced.  We would like a good NAS front end that can utilize the space we have on our existing back end array.  So, can the Titan or Mercury models function as a front end for an exisintg array from another vendor?  Our array is Compellent Storage Center.


Thanks for your help.
