Product Details

Powered by CloudByte ElastiStor OS, the ElastiStor Appliance family enables any size department or organization to drop in a Cloud Storage solution that instantly works with all major virtualization and stack environments.

With a slim, 2U “Storage-Cloud-in-a-Box” form factor designed to maximize rack space density, ESA provides full enterprise storage and networking capabilities. Yet, ElastiStor makes storage management a snap.

Each model comes preconfigured with the environment needed to support the specified number of applications or VMs. Plug-ins for major virtualization and stack environments are also included.

Summary

CloudByte provides secure, multi-application storage for enterprise applications run by both enterprises and service providers. Its patent-pending technology empowers organizations to spin out Virtual Storage Machines (VSMs) and to scale storage performance higher or lower on demand.

Features

HA With Non-Disruptive Upgrade And Migration

Provides high availability groups of up to four nodes. While conventional high availability only protects against the failure of one node, ElastiStor High Availability protects against the failure of up to three nodes. This capability is a perfect match for ElastiStor RAIDZ-3 data protection capabilities that protect against the failure of up to three physical drives without losing data.

Guaranteed Storage Performance

ElastiStor is the only Storage Cloud to feature secure isolation and guaranteed storage performance to each application or VM (sharing the appliance), with a patent-pending storage architecture, making it the best value in multiple application environment.

Unified Storage With Complete Enterprise-Grade Storage Features

Have NAS and SAN on the same box; a unified strategy that is flexible and easy. Take full advantage of the all-flash and hybrid storage options: consistent and guaranteed performance to support critical applications built to your business.

ElastiStor is designed to run on commodity hardware which makes scalable storage an on-budget affair. You have the option of both block size and file access from arrays. Multi-protocol support makes ElastiStor is a better for any infrastructure.

Ease Of Use, Low Management Cost

ElastiCenter, the web-based centralized management console that controls the CloudByte storage environment worldwide and scales from a single site to many geographically dispersed clusters.

Know how each Virtual Storage Machine performs in real time, from active IOPS vs Scheduled IOPS to read/write ratios and block size, using CloudByte Storage Analytics.

Local And Remote Data Protection

Data integrity leveraging ZFS, ElastiStor protects against silent data corruption over time, errors that can arise while replicating or cloning data, and transmission errors. For RAID configurations, self-healing capabilities ensure that bad data is automatically repaired.

With ElastiStor, an unlimited number of snapshots can be made and managed. ElastiStor clones are writable snapshots that are created instantly via pointers. So, they do not have either a space or a performance impact. Also, ElastiStor supports local (within a Node) replication.

Inline Deduplication And Compression

Make substantial capacity savings with zero impact on performance using CloudByte’s inline deduplication and compression techniques. While traditional Storage struggle to achieve data reduction, ElastiStor’s intelligent capacity management effectively reduces overall physical storage demands.
