Our StoneFly SCVM™ (Storage Concentrator Virtual Machine) Software-Defined Unified Storage™ (SDUS) is a Virtual IP Storage Software Appliance that creates a virtual network storage appliance using the existing resources of your virtual server. This virtual IP storage platform for VMware vSphere, vCloud and Microsoft Hyper-V environments, provides an advanced, fully featured iSCSI SAN and NAS within a virtual machine to form a Virtual Storage Appliance. You will no longer need a separate box for your storage. Create networked IP storage along with your server virtual machines, all on the same hardware platform. Increase productivity, simplify management, and reduce power and rack space requirements while using SCVM Virtual Storage Appliance with your existing hardware. By creating a StoneFly iSCSI Target within a VMware or Microsoft virtual server, StoneFly customers may reallocate existing hardware resources to create a business continuity and disaster recovery solution. StoneFly synchronous mirroring within the datacenter and distributed campus, along with asynchronous mirroring (replication) between remote facilities enables instant disaster recovery and eliminates loss of access to storage during disasters
The Unified Storage & Server appliances are the ideal hyper-converged infrastructure solution to consolidate all of your Server and Storage systems into one easy to manage appliance. Use of virtualized operating systems allows for complete hardware utilization and considerable reduction in power and cooling costs.
By migrating your existing Windows and Linux physical servers to VMware-compatible Virtual Machines on the StoneFly USS appliance, you can greatly reduce your hardware footprint and run many more applications on much less hardware.
Campus mirroring to a second on-premises StoneFly USS appliance and asynchronous replication to a USS appliance at a remote site or in the cloud makes the USS the perfect business continuity and disaster recovery solution. Available in integrated in high-availability cluster configurations
StoneFly’s series of SAN Gateway Appliances allow businesses to easily convert their existing Fibre Channel, SAS, Infiniband, or iSCSI storage (EMC, NetApp, Dell, etc.) into their choice of unified advanced iSCSI, Fibre Channel SAN or NAS storage.
Once storage volumes have been provisioned by a StoneFly Gateway appliance, they can enjoy StoneFly’s numerous advanced data storage management features such as snapshots, thin provisioning, synchronous mirroring, asynchronous replication, hardware-enabled volume encryption, and data deduplication as well as add their own Virtual Machines.
Available in single-node, or high-availability dual-node cluster solutions in active-active configurations. Most popular are StoneFly’s data deduplication gateways and encryption gateways.
