Overland Storage SnapScale X4 - Scale-Out
NAS with Unified Blocks and Files
Up to 36 Drives or 1.4PB, 42U
The SnapScale X4 provides a high-density solution to
more efficiently manage growing amounts of unstructured data. The new clustered
NAS offering now unifies NAS and iSCSI storage volumes under one global
namespace helping enterprises strike the balance between storage capacity and
ROI, while still maintaining the ability to expand.
The SnapScale X4 will allow businesses to take advantage of
iSCSI block-level access for hosted databases, virtualisation and other
applications that can leverage block access over well-understood IP networks.
All SnapScale platforms, which are VMware and Microsoft certified, maximise
performance and provide greater redundancy, making it ready to meet the demands
of companies with data growth. This unified architecture is for organisations
that require a highly available primary storage solution that consolidates
file-based and block-based access into a single, scalable storage architecture
providing maximum uptime.
With up to 36 drives in one node and the ability to house
1.4PB of capacity in a standard 42U server rack, the SnapScale X4 clustered NAS
solution is designed to help companies maximise valuable rack space. The
clustered architecture deploys file-level data striping between drives, and uses
dynamic Data Balancing, which ensures that when a cluster is expanded, files are
simply rebalanced to optimise all resources within the cluster. This results in
increased performance and maximised availability as the cluster scales.
Joe Disher, director of product
marketing for disk-based products, Overland Storage explained: "By supporting
more drives within each SnapScale node than ever before, we are able to help
companies manage the rapid growth and management of unstructured data which has
become a real issue for IT administrators. While density is key to maximising
rack space efficiencies, businesses are increasingly migrating to a virtualised
infrastructure and the SnapScale X4 helps our customers support these efforts,
as well as providing them with all of the existing benefits they have come to
expect from SnapScale."
As well as these latest features, SnapScale X4 continues to
offer the benefits of the SnapScale brand. Built on RAINcloud OS and using Rapid
Rebuild technology, SnapScale provides 99.999% uptime and a
no-single-point-of-failure architecture along with enterprise features such as
redundancy, snapshots, automatic failover, replication and flexible
With the ability to add hundreds of petabytes of capacity, SnapScale X4 can
scale to support the largest of capacity needs, allowing businesses to grow
their storage infrastructure. The cluster can be configured in less than 10
minutes with no added management complexities as the storage infrastructure
SnapScale X4 a simple, effective, and scalable solution.
