What is SAN Storage

Storage Area Network (SAN) provides high performance block-level network access to storage. SAN storage appliances comprise of hosts, switches, storage controller and storage drives. Standard SAN protocols include iSCSI and Fibre Channel (FC).

StoneFly SAN storage appliances are powered by StoneFly patented SAN storage Operating System (OS): StoneFusion.

The SAN OS enables users to integrate a range of enterprise data services, such as deduplication, thin provisioning, advanced encryption, etc. to optimize block data storage and protect mission-critical workloads.

StoneFly SAN Storage Enterprise-Grade Features

StoneFly SAN storage solutions are purpose-built to optimize block-level storage and deliver enhanced read and write speed for businesses while making storage easy and convenient.  To do so, StoneFly StoneFusion delivers a number of data services in StoneFly SAN storage appliances.  Here’s a brief list of these enterprise-grade features:

Thin Provisioning

Enhance storage utilization rates, make the most of your SAN storage infrastructure & speed up storage provisioning for applications and programs with thin provisioning.
Integrated Storage Appliance 7

Flash Cache™

Speed up data accessibility and read speeds by configuring Solid State Drives (SSDs) / Flash drives as front-end cache for your frequently accessed data (Hot data) with optional StoneFly Flash Cache.
Integrated Storage Appliance 8

Encryption – AES 256-bit & SSL/TLS Tunneling

Secure mission-critical workloads at rest with optional AES 256-bit encryption technology and in transit with SSL/TLS tunneling.  Make sure your important data is secure from foreign threats, cyber-attacks, rogue applications and malware.
Integrated Storage Appliance 9

Delta-based Snapshot

Schedule point-in-time delta-based snapshots of your SAN storage infrastructure and store snapshots on primary, secondary, offsite and / or cloud-based StoneFly storage.  With snapshots, businesses gain the ability to recover their IT systems to a specific point in time and recover from data corruption, data loss, ransomware, and other similar threats.

.

Integrated Storage Appliance 10

Data Deduplication

Leverage data deduplication technology to reduce unnecessary copies of data and the storage capacity consumed by them.  Use SAN storage capacity effectively with optional integrated data deduplication (memory upgrade required).

.

Integrated Storage Appliance 11

Synchronous & Asynchronous Replication

Setup real-time synchronous replication or schedule optional asynchronous replication jobs to secondary or remote/off-site StoneFly SAN appliances and enable high availability of mission-critical data.  Businesses can also opt to create replicas in public clouds (like Azure, AWS, and other S3 compatible clouds) or in StoneFly’s private cloud for additional redundancy and business
continuity.

StoneFly Enterprise SAN Storage Infrastructure

Currently in its 8th 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 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.
