Recognized Leader in Storage
Why bother with auto-tiering when you could have a full on SSD SAN? "Why would I want a full SSD SAN", you ask? SSDs are the way of the future. As the world speeds up, your business can't afford to be left behind with slow spinning disks. The lightning fast ability and accessibility offered by SSD is what your business needs to maintain that most competitive of edges. Legacy auto-tiering SANs from companies like EMC, 3Par, and Compellent can't compare to an All Flash array. Cybernetics SANs from VMsources are affordable All Flash storage solutions which are 100% customizable! VMsources will pinpoint the performance, connectivity, and the usable capacity you need for initial implementation, while considering future growth projections. Whether you need an All-Flash array, Hybrid (SSD mixed with spinning disk), or spinning disk-based SANs for bulk capacity, they can accommodate any request!
Cybernetics SANs are scalable to over a Petabyte of storage within a single configuration. Epic, right? With their Dynamic Expansion feature, you can add in drives to your existing RAID set any time down the road (or start a new RAID set, perhaps with a different drive type), with no interruption of service. Since the controllers are hot-swappable, you can upgrade the appliance itself to a larger, more robust model, non-disruptively. This eliminates the costs and time dedicated to a new SAN purchase or a data migration, when all you need is more processing power in the SAN itself.
Cybernetics also has no cap on annual renewals and you can start with as many years of support as requested. Technical Support is available for the lifetime of the unit, regardless of current support coverage.
WHAT YOU GET
- All SSD storage arrays
- 1Gb iSCSI (4 Active/Active ports per controller
- 10Gb Fibre Channel & 10Gb iSCSI
- VMware Ready
Cybernetics iSAN® is an effective solution in a wide variety of roles, from volume storage to supporting heavy-duty applications and databases. It is an ideal platform for VDI deployments.
If your data storage needs grow, just add drives to dynamically expand capacity without downtime. Add lower-cost expansion arrays for scalability up to 192 drives and 1.5 PB of integral storage on a single SAN.
The dual-controller systems provide easy upward growth when higher performance is needed. Simply exchange controller modules for non-disruptive upgrades.
Cybernetics iSAN® supports tiered storage with any number of disk drive types, speed, and capacity. Choose standard disks or cost-effective SSDs. Mix and match drives and RAID sets in the same chassis. Chassis up to 24 bays are available.
iSAN® works with Windows, Linux, Unix, Netware, and OSx. Certified for VMware, Citrix XEN, and Hyper V.
Snapshot Data Protection
Snapshots provide quick access to previous versions of data. Snapshots are configured per volume on a timed schedule, on demand, or when data changes reach a size threshold you set. They are highly efficient, storing only a single instance of each changed block.
Remote Data Replication
Cybernetics iSANs can protect your data with off-site replication - automated, deduplicated, and encrypted - to another unit anywhere. Replication is configured individually for each volume, and multi-site replication is supported. Replication uses efficient snapshot technology, so it is bandwidth-friendly.
