Product Details

HCA2000 is built for high availability using real-time data replication and complete redundancy. Complementing the redudancy features, the full backup and disaster recovery capabilities make the HCA2000 appliance the ideal solution to deliver always-on enterprise services.

Purpose built to meet the IO needs of VDI solutions, the HCA2000 appliance delivers performance on par with physical desktops. Tuned to support VDI software from Citrix®, the HCA2000 uses PCIe flash along with 10GbE fabric to deliver unmatched virtualization performance.

The uprecedent level of integration and the software defined storage fabric in the HCA2000 enable delivery of large numbers of high quality VDI sessions with the lowest TCOs.

HCA2000 converged appliance is the building block of choice for cost effective VDI and other virtualized workloads.

Features

Converged

High performance Intel® Xeon® E5 v2 processors placed in close proximity to PCIe Flash and 10GbE network enable highly efficient data movement and processing. Local active data combined with cluster coherency enables delivery of MIPS, IOPS and MB/s in a cost effective manner.

Scalable

The software defined storage fabric enables the converged appliance to be chained together to scale linearly for compute and storage performance. As the demand for virtualized workloads increase, HCA 2000 appliances can be added incrementally to the cluster to meet the growing needs.

Highly Availabile

HCA 2000 clusters duplicate data in real-time maintaing integrity in times of failure. Writes in the system are synchronously replicated across appliances at very high speeds. Data is also replicated across appliances in near real time into long term bulk storage for disaster recovery

Smart management

Orchestration and provisioning of the appliance is done using a smart UI which also integrates an industry standard monitoring framework for standardized management. The appliance is shipped with pre-configured software stacks, enabling instantaneous commissioning.

Backup / DR

Complete snapshot and backup capabilities are available both at a per VM level as well as for complete volumes. Snapshots and backups can be maintained in the built-in object store. This object store has multiple copies of data distributed across the cluster with a option to sync to a remote location.

Multi-tier Storage

There are two data tiers in the appliance with an optional third tier. A high performance flash based cache maintains active data and the data at rest is stored in a distributed object store. The flash layer provides the performance, while the object layer provides the capacity.
