Brief Overview of StoneFly Storage OS
StoneFly patented* storage OS, StoneFusion and SCVM, enables users to provision NAS, SAN and unified (NAS + SAN) volumes on bare-metal, Windows and Linux servers. The enterprise storage OS comes pre-configured in all StoneFly storage and backup & Disaster Recovery (DR) appliances.
StoneFusion is also available as a standalone software. The storage OS can be installed on bare-metal servers and mainstream enterprise storage appliances such as Dell EMC, HPE, among several others.
Besides storage provisioning, the storage OS facilitates integration of several enterprise-grade features such as delta-based snapshots, synchronous and asynchronous replication, volume encryption, automated storage tiering, and others.
The innovative storage software also facilitates cloud integration with StoneFly appliances and other servers. Supported cloud repositories include Azure, Amazon S3, other S3 compatible cloud and StoneFly private cloud.
The SCVM storage OS can be installed on mainstream hypervisors such as VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, and Citrix (formerly XenServers) to provision virtual NAS, virtual SAN, virtual unified (NAS + SAN) storage repositories and/or to integrate desired cloud repositories to build a hybrid HCI storage solution. With SCVM, users can run VMs in their preferred cloud, create snapshots in the cloud, replicate to the cloud, and more.
StoneFly also recently introduced StoneFusion MSP edition, the storage OS version that facilitates MSPs and large organizations to provision virtual, purpose-built, multi-tenant and noise-less storage repositories on on-premises, remote or cloud-based servers.
