    Integrated Air-Gapped and Immutable Storage: The Unbreakable Ransomware Defense

    StoneFly USS HCI appliances deliver comprehensive ransomware defense through automated air-gapping and immutability.

    Here's how it works:

    1. Policy-based Air-Gapping: Isolates critical data by physically or logically detaching the storage from the network, creating an unbreachable air gap that ransomware can’t reach.
    2. Immutable FileLock and S3 Object Lockdown: Prevents malicious actors from modifying, deleting, or overwriting your unstructured data for a predefined retention period.
    Automated Air-Gapped Storage in Hyperconverged Solution

    Unmatched Security with Flexibility:

    Air-Gapped & Immutable Repositories

    This setup combines a network-facing repository for daily use with a separate, air-gapped and immutable repository for ransomware-proof storage and retention.

    Air-Gapped & Immutable Controllers:

    Dual-controller setup with one network-facing controller and a separate, air-gapped and immutable controller for enhanced data security.

    Air-Gapped & Immutable Nodes

    Purpose-built, detachable nodes offering maximum air-gapped and immutable security for sensitive data

    All configurations follow the same principle: air-gapped storage is only accessible during designated read/write operations and then physically disconnected, ensuring complete ransomware protection.

    Integrated Security and Advanced Data Services

    Air-Gapped and Immutable Storage

    Automated policy-based isolation for critical data with integrated immutability which stops changes, overwriting, and malicious encryption.  

    Immutable FileLock

    Secure unstructured data (files, images, etc.) for a set time with WORM-like immutability. Stops ransomware and keeps data safe – even after deletion attempts.

    Immutable S3 Object Lockdown

    Lockdown S3 objects (on-prem or cloud) for tamper-proof protection. Stops edits, overwrites, and ransomware like an ironclad FileLock.

    Immutable Snapshots

    Create secure, immutable snapshots of your data (block, file, or object storage). These frozen backups shield from edits, overwrites, and ransomware, offering a safe point in time to restore from.

    Volume Deletion Protection

    Volume deletion protection stops accidental or malicious deletion. Requires multi-step verification with StoneFly support for authorized removal.

    End-to-End Encryption

    StoneFly HCI encrypts your data at rest with AES 256-bit encryption, and data in transit travels through secure SSL/TLS tunnels. Ironclad protection for your data, wherever it goes.

    Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

    Secure your data with multi-factor authentication (MFA) required not just for access, but also for critical  administrative tasks like volume deletion, and immutability settings.

    On-Demand Sandbox

    Spin up a secure, isolated environment (sandbox) on demand. Experiment with software, configurations, or data recovery – all without impacting your production environment.

    Variable Block Deduplication

    Variable block deduplication analyzes data in 4KB, 8KB, 32KB, and 64KB chunks, storing only unique blocks and referencing them wherever they appear. This significantly reduces storage requirements.

    Sync/Async Replication

    Choose real-time replication (sync) for instant failover or asynchronous replication for efficient redundancy. StoneFly keeps your data constantly protected and available, on-site or off-site.

    Thin Provisioning

    Thin provisioning in StoneFly HCI allocates storage only as your data grows. This maximizes usable capacity, lets you optimize resource allocation, and avoids upfront over-provisioning.

    Frontend SSD Caching

    Utilize frontend SSD caching to accelerate data access. Frequently used data gets stored on high-performance SSDs for faster retrieval, boosting application performance and responsiveness.

    Multiple Isolated Environments, One Box:

    Integrated Dual Hardware Controller Single Node

    This USS HCI architecture takes an efficient and cost-effective approach to hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) by offering multiple independent and isolated environments within a single node. The architecture, powered by our patented Storage Virtualization Engine (SCVM™) and dual hardware controllers, delivers the benefits of dedicated appliances while maximizing resource utilization.

    Dual Hardware Controller Single Node Hyperconverged Solution

    Key Advantages:

    • Isolated Security Zones: Each environment operates with dedicated hardware controllers, guaranteeing complete separation for enhanced security and data protection. This eliminates the risk of performance bottlenecks or latency often encountered in shared environments.
    • Flexible Configuration Options: Solution architects can leverage the dual hardware controllers to create customized configurations.
      • Virtualization Host (Source): The primary controller (SC-1) acts as the foundation for your virtualization environment. It supports leading hypervisors (VMware, Hyper-V, Proxmox) and a wide range of connectivity options (iSCSI/Fibre Channel, CIFS/SMB, NFS, and S3 REST API) for your production VMs.
      • Secure High Performance Storage (Target): The secondary controller (SC-2) unlocks a variety of storage configurations, including:
        • Synchronous and Asynchronous Replication: Ensure business continuity and data availability with flexible replication options.
        • Immutable and Air-Gapped Storage: Protect critical data from ransomware attacks with tamper-proof storage solutions.
        • S3 Object Lockdown and Immutable FileLock: Further strengthen data security with advanced object and file locking mechanisms.
        • Continuous Data Protection (CDP): Minimize data loss with real-time data backups.
        • Shared NAS Repository: Facilitate efficient file sharing across your virtual environment.

    VMware and Hyper-V Cluster for HA: Sync/Async Replication and Automated Failover

    StoneFly USS HCI appliances empower organizations to seamlessly scale their IT infrastructure and achieve exceptional business continuity through robust clustering capabilities.

    Built-in High Availability:

    Automated Failover and Failback: StoneFly USS eliminates downtime concerns with automated failover and failback functionalities. In the event of a node failure, the remaining healthy nodes automatically take over workloads, ensuring uninterrupted application and service availability. Once the failed node is repaired, automated failback seamlessly restores the original cluster configuration.

    Simple and Scalable Cluster Management:

    • Effortless Clustering: StoneFly USS appliances are delivered as turnkey systems, minimizing configuration complexity. Clustering is pre-configured and easy to activate, allowing system administrators to quickly set up and scale out as their storage and compute demands grow.
    • Sync/Async Replication Options: StoneFly USS supports both synchronous and asynchronous replication, providing system administrators with the flexibility to choose the right replication strategy for their specific needs. Synchronous replication ensures real-time data consistency across the cluster, ideal for mission-critical applications. Asynchronous replication offers efficient data replication with lower latency, suitable for disaster recovery scenarios.
