StoneFly Enterprise SAN Storage Infrastructure

Currently in its 9th generation, StoneFly SAN storage is purpose-built for high performance enterprise block storage workloads.

Our SAN storage appliances are highly redundant, modular, and robust.  With support for iSCSI and optional Fibre Channel (FC), StoneFly SAN appliances are flexible, expandable, and easy to manage.  Available from Terabytes to Petabytes in storage capacity, StoneFly enterprise SANs can be scaled up in storage capacity with expansion units;  hence making them well suited to enterprise-grade workload volumes.

Our SAN storage solutions are available in two types of hardware configurations:

·       StoneFly ISC™ = Integrated Storage Appliance.

·      StoneFly Voyager = High-Availability Modular Cluster Appliance.

 

StoneFly ISC™ – Integrated SAN Appliance

The StoneFly ISC (Integrated Storage Concentrator) SAN appliance is a single storage box featuring enterprise Xeon architecture with a robust hardware RAID controller, hot-swappable power supply modules, and hot-swappable storage drives to deliver high performance block storage.

Our SAN storage infrastructure supports combinations of enterprise hard drive and flash drives and can be set up as:

  • Hybrid SAN Storage – with SAS and SSDs.
  • All-Flash SAN Storage – with SSDs.
  • Hard Drive SAN Storage – with SAS.

StoneFly ISC SAN storage appliances are available in 8-bay to 36-bay rackmount configurations and scale up to 256-drives per appliance with StoneFly expansion units; allowing for storage configurations as small as just a few Terabytes or up to several Petabytes.

StoneFly SAN systems are available in standard iSCSI configuration with an optional Fibre Channel upgrade.

Key components of the StoneFly ISC hardware are redundant, and hot-swappable.  Users can dynamically replace drives and power supplies in the SAN systems without any disruption.  The redundant power supplies make sure that the SAN appliance continue to run even if one power supply fails.

With integrated data services such as delta-based snapshots and replication, combined with proven technologies like hardware RAID protection with RAID cache battery backup, users can leverage StoneFly SAN solutions to ensure business continuity for mission-critical enterprise workloads.

StoneFly Voyager – High-Availability Disaggregated SAN Storage Appliances

Voyager DX and Voyager FC are StoneFly’s high-availability disaggregated SAN storage appliances.  While StoneFly ISC appliances use an integrated infrastructure, Voyager cluster appliances have a disaggregated infrastructure with emphasis on high availability and fault-tolerance.

Each Voyager SAN cluster appliance comprises of the following disaggregated hardware components:

  • Storage Controller (1U or 2U)
  • RAID Expansion Array (12 to 24-bay)

Storage Controller: Pre-configured with StoneFusion™ OS and the management layer that facilitates management and control of structured data. 

RAID Expansion Array: Houses storage drives for block-level storage and  integrated dual active/active RAID controller for redundancy, availability, and fault tolerance. 

The Voyager DX and Voyager FC storage controllers share similar architectures.  The difference between the two is that the Voyager DX scales its capacity via 12Gb SAS-attached RAID expansion array, whereas the Voyager FC scales its capacity via 16Gb Fibre Channel (FC)-attached RAID expansion array. 

When combined with an optional FC switch, the storage capacity of the Voyager FC is nearly limitless!

Integrated Storage Appliance 6

Voyager SAN Storage – Disaggregated & Modular Hardware

Each Voyager HA appliance consists of two clustered SAN storage controllers and one or more High-Availability RAID subsystems with dual active-active RAID controllers supporting failover and failback.

The two StoneFly SAN storage controllers provide a parallel or clustered path of access to the stored block data. 

In this SAN storage system, even if one storage controller node fails, the other continues to access the HA RAID subsystem; thus providing the end-user a disruption free experience.

This architecture makes StoneFly Voyager Cluster SAN solutions the best fit for enterprise environments with emphasis on high availability and minimum tolerance for disruption and downtime. 

Integrated Storage Appliance 23

Voyager cluster SAN appliances have a modular and highly redundant infrastructure.  StoneFly Voyager appliances can withstand the failure of an entire storage controller, a hot-swappable RAID controller, disk drive(s)* or power supply module with no impact to uptime.  All RAID controllers, disk drives and power supply modules are hot-swappable for easy maintenance.

* Disk drive failure tolerance determined by your specific RAID configuration.  Contact StoneFly for details.

Multipath Connections in Voyager Disaggregated SAN Storage Appliances

Voyager cluster SAN appliances support optional Multipath connections.  Users can reduce single points of failure by setting up multipath access and dedicate two paths from each storage controller to the HA RAID subsystem.

In the event of a failure of one path, the redundant path ensures business continuity and a disruption-free experience for the end user.

Add More Storage to your Voyager Disaggregated SAN Storage Solution

 

Users can increase the storage capacity of their StoneFly Voyager cluster SAN storage solutions by adding StoneFly HA RAID expansion arrays and HA expansion units.

HA RAID expansion arrays and expansion units are available in a wide range of form factors and capacities.  StoneFly HA expansion can be configured with combinations of enterprise SAS and SSDs for a variety of use-cases and applications.

Voyager DX clusters featuring two 1U storage controllers can scale to support up to 1776 SAS drives or SSD per cluster appliance.

Voyager DX clusters featuring two 2U storage controllers can scale to support up to 4440 SAS drives or SSD per cluster appliance.

Voyager FC clusters can support a nearly unlimited number of drives when combined with an optional FC switch.
