By leveraging the following data services and features, our hyperconverged infrastructure offer higher storage space utilization and greater value for money.

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 9

Erasure Coding

Make data more accessible and available with erasure coding. Erasure coding works similar to RAID technology but consumes less storage space.

Erasure coding divides data blocks into component and parity blocks and distributes them over the available storage drives. This makes the hyperconverged solution fault-tolerant. In the event of a drive failure, the end user experiences no disruption or data loss and continues to operate as if nothing happened.

 

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 10

Flash Cache™

Setup flash (SSDs) as a front-end cache to enhance data read and write speeds.

Our Flash Cache™ technology facilitates business environments looking to setup high speed data storage for hot tier or frequently accessed data. Flash Cache enables IT environments to process enterprise-grade workloads at incredible speeds. By setting up Flash Cache, businesses can effectively optimize data storage and speed up their storage experience.

Image-based Snapshots

SCVM enables businesses to configure image-based snapshots and create point-in-time snapshots of mission-critical workloads to recover from data corruption, accidental / malicious deletion, ransomware attack and other similar disasters.

For additional data protection, our customers can choose to run mainstream backup software like Veeam, Commvault, Veritas, Zerto, and more on StoneFly hyperconverged solutions.

Image-based snapshots can be configured using the pre-configured SCVM software. There’s no need to add a third party service provider to setup snapshots. Users can leverage SCVM to create snapshots and store them on on-premises or offsite storage appliances or in the cloud.

 

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 12

Thin Provisioning

Improve storage provisioning speed and dynamically allocate more disk space when required with thin provisioning.

Thin provisioning enables users to create virtual volumes that appear larger than their original size to applications that require dedicated storage capacity. This enhances storage provisioning speed by 3x. Businesses can add more capacity when the original storage space is consumed.

This feature also helps regulate the per TB cost of hyperconverged storage.

 

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 13

Asynchronous Replication

Secure mission-critical enterprise workloads with advanced encryption technology.

StoneFly hyperconverged solutions protect data at rest with AES 256-bit encryption while the data at transit is secured with SSL/TLS tunneling.

Data encryption facilitates businesses processing confidential data to operate without having to worry about data leak or breach. Encryption technology plays a pivotal role for industries like healthcare by encrypting patient data, police departments by encrypting Personally Identifiable Information (PII), financial companies by encrypting financial records and credit card information, and many others.

 

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 14

Synchronous Replication / Mirroring

Remove single point-of-failure and setup a highly available and redundant hyperconverged infrastructure.

Synchronous replication (mirroring) enables businesses to deploy a storage infrastructure that replicates data between two appliance nodes, creating a mirrored cluster. This cluster makes sure that the end user does not experience any disruption in data accessibility and availability.

In the event of a disaster (rogue malware, hardware failure, etc.), the path automatically changes and the appliance fails over to the working node. This failover is seamless and disruption-free. The user continues to access data while IT staff fixes the failed appliance node.

The integration of synchronous replication / mirroring creates a highly available hyperconverged infrastructure suitable for environments that rely on disruption-free accessibility to enterprise data.

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 10

Data Deduplication

Deduplication enhances storage space utilization by removing duplicates that consume unnecessary storage capacity. The built-in SCVM software analyzes data blocks and looks for repetition. The duplicate copies are replaced with a reference address that directs to a single, compressed copy; hence reducing the storage capacity consumed.

Our hyperconverged infrastructure leverages deduplication extending it to appliance nodes, any file system, and/or hypervisor.

 

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 9

Automated Storage Tiering

Setup storage tiers in on-premises, offsite, and cloud storage repositories. Define policies that move data between storage tiers for automated and efficient data management.

By using combinations of enterprise hard drives (SAS) and flash (SSDs) drives and moving data volumes between them, businesses can effectively control the cost of data storage and retention in our hyperconverged infrastructure.

Advanced Data Encryption

Secure mission-critical enterprise workloads with advanced encryption technology.

StoneFly hyperconverged solutions protect data at rest with AES 256-bit encryption while the data at transit is secured with SSL/TLS tunneling.

Data encryption facilitates businesses processing confidential data to operate without having to worry about data leak or breach. Encryption technology plays a pivotal role for industries like healthcare by encrypting patient data, police departments by encrypting Personally Identifiable Information (PII), financial companies by encrypting financial records and credit card information, and many others.

 

Cloud-Enabled Hyperconverged Storage Appliance

 

StoneFly hyperconverged storage appliances have built-in cloud connect services. Enterprises can integrate public clouds, like Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and any other S3 compatible cloud, and StoneFly private cloud.

Cloud integration makes our hyperconverged storage appliances a truly hybrid storage solution. Users can add cloud storage on the fly and setup redundancy by storing copies in the cloud.

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 18

The hybrid hyperconverged infrastructure also plays an effective role in an enterprise data protection plan. Businesses can leverage remote replication to create on-site or offsite copies with an additional copy in the cloud. This facilitates data protection policies, like the 3-2-1 rule, hence making the storage solution reliable, robust, and secure for mission-critical enterprise workloads.

Remote Replication to Secondary Hyperconverged Storage

 

With built-in iSCSI initiators and synchronous or asynchronous replication, setup remote replication (campus mirroring) for mission-critical workloads.

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 19

Our USS hyperconverged storage is compatible with most mainstream storage servers and can be configured as a secondary storage / disaster recovery site. Enterprises can also choose two USS hyperconverged storage systems with one as primary and the other as on-premises or offsite secondary storage system.

Leverage our remote replication features to facilitate high availability requirements and deploy a robust hyperconverged storage system without a single point of failure.  

Replace your Datacenter with StoneFly Hyperconverged Storage Systems

 

The traditional datacenter consists of different servers, network systems, and uses a number of tools to assign and manage storage resources for different clients and users. StoneFly USS hyperconverged storage appliances enable enterprises to replace all their servers, storage, network hardware and tools with one storage system that has it all.

 

(uss) Hyperconverged Appliance - Exceptional Simplified IT 20
