Key Advantages of Arxys | Sentio SDS
High Availability Load-balanced Dual Storage Controller Cluster with Ethernet, SAS or Fibre Channel connection- delivers the highest data security with SMB / NFS / iSCSI failover functionality. Choose local or metro failover via Metro HA Cluster Feature Pack (SAS, FC, Ethernet) or Local HA Cluster Feature Pack (SAS, FC). Arxys | Sentio delivers failover functionality for SMB, NFS and iSCSI enabling you to set up High Availability Load-Balanced Storage Clusters that ensure reliability and redundancy through failover in case of a server crash.
Local or Remote Replication
The On- & Off-site Data Protection feature is a strategy for Storage, Backup, Disaster Recovery and Archiving(optional) that allows for an instant restore of a company’s crucial data in case of an unexpected disaster.
On- & Off-site Data Protection enables creating consistent snapshots of chosen resources and asynchronous replication to remote (or local) destinations. The rotational auto-snapshots of a chosen dataset or zvol are stored according to a retention-interval plan for secure and structured data archiving that can be set according to specific user needs.
Hybrid storage pools – Utilize the I/O performance of SSDs and high capacity of HDDs in a single system.
Thin provisioning – Virtually simulates a bigger volume than is physically available, and allows growing it on the fly without the need to re-format the file system.
Tiered cache – RAM and SSD cache tier hot data between each other to increase performance.
Disk Multipathing support – for higher fault tolerance, Data Integrity and performance.
ZFS Based Performance
128-bit ZFS file system – The most scalable & flexible file system.
Unlimited file size – Most legacy solutions limit the file sizes, in ZFS eliminates those limits.
Unlimited scalability – Easy and intuitive storage extensions enable unlimited storage capacity.
Unlimited Compatibility – The Linux architecture provides Arxys | Sentio with much better compatibility.
Warranted data integrity – Self-healing check-sums, atomic writes and transactional copy-on-write I/O operations eliminate silent data corruption and ‘write-holes’.
