The StoneFly USC™ “Unified Storage Concentrator” SAN Gateway Appliance allows businesses to easily convert their existing Fibre Channel, SAS, Infiniband, or iSCSI storage (EMC, NetApp, Dell, etc.) into their choice of unified iSCSI, Fibre Channel SAN or NAS Storage. Once Storage volumes have been provisioned by the USC appliance, they can enjoy StoneFly’s numerous advanced data Storage management features.

Built-in features of the StoneFly USC SAN Gateway include StoneFly iSCSI, delta-based snapshots with mountable read-write snapshot volumes, real-time synchronous campus mirroring of iSCSI volumes and nodes, thin provisioning with space reclamation, iSCSI port teaming with failover and load-balancing, as well as advanced storage virtualization services.

Optional features available for the StoneFly USC SAN Gateway include Fibre Channel SAN target, hardware-enabled block level AES256 volume encryption, asynchronous replication, NAS volume support for CIFS/SMB and NFS protocols, VSS support for quiescing databases, and optimized data deduplication for increased Storage efficiency. StoneFly’s data deduplication capability allows users to fit 5x to 137x more data within the same Storage footprint without reducing overall performance.

The USC SAN Gateway is an ideal solution to consolidate all of your server and Storage systems into one easy to manage and redundant appliance with hot-swappable mirrored OS drives and power supplies. Use of virtualized operating systems allows for complete hardware utilization and considerable reduction in power/cooling costs. USC flexibility replaces the “fixed hardware model” of the past with on-demand resource allocation (such as CPU, memory, Storage, etc.) based on your application needs. USC comes with a Virtual SAN (SCVM™) and the ability to create additional virtual Storage or virtual servers as needed.

USC-HA SAN Gateway is an ideal solution to consolidate all of your server and Storage systems into one easy to manage, fully redundant, highly available modular appliance. Use of virtualized operating systems allows for complete hardware utilization and considerable reduction in power/cooling costs. USC-HA flexibility replaces the “fixed hardware model” of the past with on-demand resource allocation (such as CPU, memory, storage, etc.) based on your application needs. USC-HA comes with a Virtual SAN Cluster (SCVM™) and the ability to create additional virtual Storage or virtual servers as needed.

    • Assign or provision all or part of your existing Storage (EMC, NetApp, Dell, etc.) through your existing or preferred available interface (iSCSI, FC, Infiniband, SAS). From this Storage pool you can create new volumes for all of your hosts. These new volumes are shown in the diagram as V1, V2, V3 and V4.
    • These new volumes (V1 – V4) are now part of StoneFly Storage and can now be encrypted, mirrored, replicated, data deduplicated, thin provisioned, etc.
    • Hosts can now enjoy volumes V1 – V4 through StoneFly iSCSI (or optional FC SAN) and enjoy all of its features. You have turned a simple volume into a managed volume and saved a lot of money
    • Additional Virtual Machines (Windows, Linux, StoneFly SCVM, etc.) that are VMware compatible can easily be installed on the USC SAN Gateway Appliance to further reduce hardware costs and datacenter overhead.
