QuantaStor Software Defined Storage

 

“If you’re considering deploying an SDS solution and looking for simplicity, flexibility, and savings, ESG Lab suggests considering OSNEXUS.” – Enterprise Strategy Group

qs_icon_scaleupout2gQuantaStor is a unified Software Defined Storage (SDS) platform designed to scale-out and make storage management easy while reducing overall enterprise storage costs. QuantaStor SDS, deployed in datacenters worldwide, addresses a broad set of storage use cases including server virtualization, big data, cloud computing, and high performance applications through scale-out physical and virtual storage appliances. With support for all major SAN/NAS protocols including iSCSI/FC and NFS/CIFS and a high availability scale-out file system with fault-tolerant technologies, QuantaStor SDS delivers a complete array of enterprise features and capabilities that can be installed on any 64-bit Intel or AMD server or virtual machine.

Scale-up, Scale-out Grid Technology

QuantaStor’s grid technology enables the scaling of storage, up and out, to 64 physical or virtual storage appliances locally or dispersed across geographies. Easily provision storage from any appliance in the grid from a single web-based management interface with no special client side software to install.

Flexible, Modular Architecture

The layered architecture of QuantaStor SDS provides solution engineers with unprecedented flexibility and application design options that maximizes workload performance and fault-tolerance for a wide range of storage workloads.

Simplified Management

The intuitive QuantaStor SDS management interface eliminates many complicated steps commonly associated with legacy storage applications while providing IT generalists that delivers powerful storage solution configuration options. QuantaStor’s web-based interface requires no special client-side software to install.

 

QuantaStor SDS Grid Technology

 

qs_icon_storagecloud2gQuantaStor SDS was designed uniquely with advanced grid scale-out management technology to enable the deployment of up to 64 appliances that can be managed from any location as a single unit. OSNEXUS has engineered out the complexity that historically has burdened storage administrators of traditional storage solutions. Much of this increased management efficiency and ease of use becomes apparent the moment you begin using QuantaStor’s web management interface.

Scale Storage up to 64 Nodes With QuantaStor’s grid technology, IT administrators can link together a mix of local and remote appliances into a grid to manage the combined pool(s) of storage from any single node in the system. QuantaStor grids scale up to 64 nodes easily handling Big Data sets and facilitating advanced features such as Remote Replication / Disaster Recovery, Gluster Scale-out NAS and Ceph technology.

Why Grids Matter

Big-data analytics and High-Performance Computing workloads are all about scaling compute and storage without physical limits. At scale, the cost of managing traditional SANs increases linearly as the deployment expands thereby doubling or tripling the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) on the deployment. The key to solving this challenge is grid technology that enables IT staff to manage the entirety of the environment as a unit so that operations like provisioning, access control, are as easy to manage a 1PB as it is at 32PB. IT administrators can link together both local and remote appliances into one unified grid to manage combined pool(s) of storage from any single node in the system up to 64 nodes with a capacity of 128PB.
