Flash Voyager DX iSCSI and Fibre Channel SAN Cluster 

Scalable Flash and Flash Hybrid SAN Storage with High-Availability 

StoneFly’s Flash Voyager DX Series of SAN Appliances is the fifth generation of the StoneFly Voyager series of high-availability cluster appliances. It offers enhanced performance, redundancy, scalability, and availability. Voyager’s scalable architecture brings the flexibility to start small, and scale up to 200 TeraBytes of all flash-based iSCSI and optional Fibre Channel SAN storage or over a Petabyte of tiered (SSD and SAS) storage. 

The cornerstone of the Flash Voyager DX SAN Cluster Appliances is the award winning StoneFusion SAN operating system. The Voyager’s high-performance storage subsystem offers redundant, active/active connectivity for appliance redundancy and increased system performance. Additionally the Flash Voyager DX offers cost-effective expansion via optional Flash Expansion Arrays and Flash Expansion Units.

The Flash Voyager DX was designed to support StoneFly’s latest StoneFusion 8.0 operating system with built-in optimized data deduplication technologies 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. This extreme storage optimization minimizes the cost outlay for flash-based disks which are typically more expensive than their spindle-based counterparts. 

The new Flash Voyager DX can be used as super fast iSCSI storage for both conventional workstations and servers, as well as virtualized machines. It was designed to deliver exceptional performance at an economical price point. The Flash Voyager DX is ideal for enterprise customers in need of a robust SAN offering both high availability and versatility for primary and secondary storage applications. 

As the newest member of the StoneFly Voyager family of SAN appliances, the Flash Voyager DX base configuration comes standard with dual hexa-core storage virtualization engines and 64GB of data packet and command queuing cache per cluster node, redundant 80-PLUS® certified hot-swappable power supply modules, and choice of six bonded gigabit Ethernet (GbE) or quad bonded 10Gb RJ-45 copper iSCSI connections per cluster. 

Available hardware upgrades include up to 1.5TB cache per node, up to fourteen bonded gigabit or eight 10Gb (RJ-45/CX4 Copper, SFP+, SR/LR Optical) iSCSI connections per cluster, and up to eight 4Gb, 8Gb or up to four 16Gb Fibre Channel SAN target ports per cluster. This high-end performance makes the Flash Voyager DX ideal for critical applications involving online transaction processing, databases, email, disk-based archives, disk-to-disk backup, virtual servers and other core business uses. 

Featuring active-active components for business continuity, the Flash Voyager DX offers full RAID protection and requires no down time for storage expansion. Its architecture enables customers to start smaller and then expand to up to 448 drives via expansion arrays. For added flexibility, configurations can be mixed and matched according to customer need with any combinations of flash-based SSD, nearline 7200RPM SAS, and enterprise 10k or 15k SAS drives. 

The Flash Voyager DX supports a wide range of virtual server environments including VMware, Citrix XenServer, and Microsoft Hyper-V. 

StoneFusion provides block-level provisioning as well as centralized storage management and advanced storage features including campus mirroring, and 2520 snapshots per subsystem. Optional upgrades include asynchronous replication, thin provisioning with space reclamation, Fibre Channel SAN target, NAS volume support for NFS and CIFS protocols, and hardware-enabled AES 256 block level volume encryption.
