Overland Storage Adds
RapidRebuild to SnapScale Clustered NAS
Recovering data quickly, intelligently rebuilding
only used blocks on HDD
Overland Storage announced RapidRebuild in its scalable
clustered scale-out NAS solutions.
With the integrated RapidRebuild feature, SnapScale is able
to recover data quickly and maximise uptime by intelligently rebuilding only the
used blocks on a drive. By utilising RapidRebuild, SnapScale reduces the rebuild
time of large capacity drives, providing optimised HA and continual data access.
SnapScale delivers a simple to deploy,
easy to manage, high-performance solution that provides 99.999% uptime and a
no-single-point-of-failure architecture for maximum data protection. Combining
the RapidRebuild feature with the newly-available 4TB Nearline SAS drives for
SnapScale offers a combination of enterprise features and increased capacity,
enabling users to meet the needs of business-critical environments, as well as
the capacity and density performance requirements of cloud and scale-out
SnapScale Delivers Capacity, Performance and Simplicity
Companies with growing data storage needs require reliable
storage solutions that offer high-density storage and performance. The storage
ecosystem needs to be easily expandable and simple to manage not just initially,
but over time.
SnapScale's enterprise-class features,
such as RapidRebuild, enable companies to better maximise the protection of
their assets more efficiently than traditional RAID implementations. Early
support of 4TB Nearline SAS drives proves our commitment to bring our customers
the best technology to support the rapidly growing storage needs of our
- The ability to rebuild and
recover data quickly and seamlessly:
SnapScale's integrated RapidRebuild
feature optimises HA by intelligently rebuilding only the used blocks on the
drive. This is critical when deploying high capacity drives, ensuring
efficient rebuild times and maximised uptime. Rebuilding large capacity
disks without RapidRebuild could take hours or even days.
- Storing and protecting data
at higher densities: With the ability
to support 4TB Nearline SAS drives, companies can now take advantage of
storage capacity to meet growing storage requirements, while consolidating
hundreds of petabytes of capacity under one global namespace.
- Savings on power, cooling
and rack space: Utilising 4TB Nearline
SAS drives allows for the reduction of the number of nodes being supported
in the data center. With the ability to maximise density, companies can
achieve reduced power, cooling costs and increased space efficiencies.
- Upgrade current environment:
With the latest 4TB Nearline SAS now available on the SnapScale X2,
companies can upgrade their capacity with larger drives while replacing
older smaller capacity drives. This feature will enable a pay-as-you-grow
model that will not require the purchase of new nodes, further optimising
storage capacity and increasing cost savings.
