First, there was a monolithic storage system that addressed the majority of applications’ needs for storage performance and capacity. Then came virtualization with demands for storage diversification. Today, organizations seek solutions that address their specific IT challenges and enable them to drive competitive advantage.
StorNext File System is a software platform architected to manage data through its lifecycle, delivering the required balance of high performance, data protection and preservation, scalability, and cost.
Other systems may deliver throughput performance, but not across thousands of parallel streams at sub-millisecond latency. Other systems can provide capacity, but not the ability to dynamically move data to media with the most appropriate mix of performance and cost. Other systems offer long-term retention in lower-cost storage, but cannot automate data movement and ensure integrity, resiliency, and accessibility on-premise or in the cloud.
StorNext delivers full data lifecycle management from data creation to the end. As data moves across storage media, from NVMe or SSD to HDD, tape, or cloud, StorNext provides continuous access. For performance-sensitive applications, StorNext leverages iSER/RDMA or IB direct to storage connections for up to 25 GB/s single-stream throughput. The storage media can be NVMe or SSD Flash for sub-millisecond latency. Thousands of parallel streams are supported to maximize data ingest and streaming. Once data no longer has performance demands, it is automatically placed on lower cost storage, per policy.
If data requires preservation over time, it can be copied or moved to Quantum LTO supported tape libraries, ActiveScale™ object store on-premise, or S3 in the public cloud. Data placed in object storage or S3 in the cloud is self-describing with vast benefits: leverage applications in analytics directly against data in the cloud, facilitate collaboration across departments or organizations, and protect data assets from infrastructure obsolescence or vendor lock-in.
