Petabyte Solution

Our Zstor PetaByte+ storage solutions help to scale your storage, and to manage in a simple way these huge capacities. The ZFS file system along with the high-quality and reliable ZSTOR JBODs allows managing this amount of data from a simple graphical user interface. The unlimited size of files and unlimited number of snapshots are managed by the ZFS storage operation system. The connection is possible over most protocols, such as NFS, CIFS, iSCSI or FC. All data management capabilities like snapshots, replication and cloning are available, therefore simplifying the tasks of system administrators and save general time for administration.

The Zstor PetaByte platform consists in this example of two Zstor dual-CPU GridServer GS312 with 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2600v4 series CPU and up to 1536 GB RAM, and 4 x ZSTOR AJ460v2 JBOD systems. It includes multiple PCI-E 3.0 LSI 12Gb/s SAS HBAs and 240 HGST Helium 12 TB enterprise SAS HDDs with total capacity of 2880 TB = 2.8 petabytes. For use with ZFS, different OS options are available: NexentaStor Enterprise version (includes license and support); or even open source ZFS operating system variants like OpenIndiana 2017.04 or OmniOS stable/LTS with the freely available management interface napp-it.

Napp-IT is a web interface which allows to manage software compatible hardware as a ZFS SAN and NAS storage system. The special focus is the management of the installed appliance, which is equipped with various enterprise functions such as different protocols (CIFS, NFS, iSCSI, FC), compression algorithms (compression, deduplication) and backup functions (snapshots, incremental snapclones, mirroring of volumes and whole systems). Different raid levels such as Raid 0, 1, Z1, Z2 and Z3 are supported. Please contact us for further functions.


Because the requirements of such solutions are very individual, we offer a free consultancy. The projecting of capacity, number of controllers / heads in the servers, performance requirements has a significant impact on the cost of the system. However, you will find that our solutions are well balances in performance, functionality and price compared to other solutions.
