Zstor Solution: NexentaStor Cluster-in-a-Box
NexentaStor Cluster-in-a-Box Solution: S2LR
NexentaStor and Zstor offers an innovative, highly available, fully redundant and fault-tolerant cluster-in-a-box solution, tailored for storage applications. The solution is designed with two rackmount units and operated with transparent failover via two redundant nodes in an active / active cluster. If a node fails, the other node will take over seamlessly all I/O activities and continue without errors or data loss. The self-healing file system RAID-Z protects against data corruption.
NexentaStor offers also outstanding enterprise features like Storage Tiering, multi protocols (FC, iSCSI, NFS, CIFS), synchronous – or asynchronous replication, distribution read and write caching, unlimited snapshots and cloning, faster resilvering, storage provisioning, and data compression / deduplication. The system is easily extensible through JBODs.
Cluster Management per Nexenta GUI
The administrator can easily manage the system via browser, CLI and remote. With these functions, the system can respond and act on growing and changing environments. This Nexenta-standard system with 2 Intel ® Xeon ® processors E5-2620, 2 x 128 GB RAM ECC, 2 x 1 GbE Ethernet ports and in addition optional 10 GB Ethernet port is shipped and can optionally be extended with more memory or other HBAs. Both nodes share the same chassis, power supplies, and fan which mark up a high energy efficiency and contributes significantly to a cost reduction. The architecture of the system is designed for energy efficiency. Data compression reduces the needed row capacity and supports again an optimization in the TCO concept.
