QuantaStor is a unified Software Defined Storage (SDS) platform designed to scale up and out to make storage management easy while reducing overall enterprise storage costs
OSNexus QuantaStor SDS is one of the more impressive software defined storage platforms available on the market. Having been designed to reduce your overall costs while also making storage management simple by scaling up and out, this software solution is perfect for anyone who wants cost-effective and easily usable storage server software.
There are vast number of features that make OSNexus QuantaStor SDS a great choice. Its storage grid technology allows you to scale-up and out to 64 storage appliances (both physical and virtual) as well as over 100 PBs of managed storage. It also manages to combine appliances, making them simple to manage as single entities. All the appliances within a grid are presented with a single combined real time view. Using this technology, a number of independent pools and storage clusters can be set up to provide highly-available file, block and object storage.
In just a few clicks you can create schedules for automatic snapshots of storage volumes. Thus, ensuring that you will be able to easily recover your files through instant rollback should anything happen. By being able to configure your own schedule, you will be able to set a schedule that reflects your business requirements and will allow instant recovery if disaster were to strike. Snapshots are also a huge asset in the battle against viruses, especially ransom-ware. If an attack was to occur, all you would have to do is use the snapshot rollback to go back to a point before the incident occurred.
QuantaStor SDS features variety of security features, leading to end-to-end security coverage. The system features multi-layer data protection for enterprise and cloud storage deployments, both while the system is taking heavy action and when the system is at rest. This end-to-end security provided by this storage server software is ideal for industry applications such as financial services, education, government, healthcare, energy and more.
The architecture of QuantaStor SDS is layered, leading to more flexibility in its design and a rare variety in design options to maximise performance and fault tolerance.
Management is made simple with the impressive QuantaStor SDS management interface. Together with the configuration workflow manager, it removes the need for many long and complex steps that have been long associated with legacy storage applications.
With QuantaStor SDS, disaster recovery has never been so easy. Its grid technology allows users to deploy very efficient continuity solutions for remote backup and disaster recovery. This can be done either locally, in the cloud or even across a number of data centres around the world. Snapshots and remote replication protocols are utilised to create and send full copies of chosen storage volumes to the disaster recovery site. Some of the key features are multi-directional & remote replication, single console multi-site management and file protection with snapshots.
If you need software that can handle Big Data workloads, QuantaStor SDS is the ideal solution. For Big Data workloads, you require storage architectures that are not only able to scale but also possess a lot of flexibility. This is needed as they handle a wide variety of workloads, ranging from analytics and real-time data processing to archiving. Important features that make this software solution so effective at handing Big Data workloads include scale-out NAS capability, integrated RAID management and flexible storage pool architecture to name a few.
Another great feature about this storage server software solution is its support for the latest technology. NVMe use is supported with all storage types. This includes NAS, SAN and object storage.
QuantaStor is certied for use on VMware v5 and v6 via FC, iSCI and NFS.
