Arxys | Sentio ensures the highest data reliability and integrity – for optimal data storage, protection and recovery.

It addresses the needs of enterprise users seeking a unified block and file (NAS and SAN) solution with thin provisioning, compression and deduplication. Arxys | Sentio brings the power and simplicity of true Software Defined Storage together with purpose-built server and storage platforms to bring enterprise-class protection, resiliency and performance to a wider range of applications.

You can seamlessly scale up choosing the most advantageous hardware configuration to meet your needs. Hardware limitations on scaling storage are eliminated via intelligent virtualization and thin provisioning. Arxys | Sentio delivers unlimited file sizes and near limitless scalability to future-proof your infrastructure, making it hyper-agile.

Arxys | Sentio, in collaboration with a certified hypervisor, is able to create sophisticated Hyper-converged Infrastructures for small and medium companies, as well as enterprises. The result is a cost-effective, flexible and highly scalable solution for virtualization that offers performance and data efficiency at unprecedented value.

Storage | Protected

Arxys | Sentio Software Orchestrated Storage (SOS) provides compelling options to architect High Availability (HA) storage environments (incl. SMB/CIFS, NFS and iSCSI protocols). Whatever your data and storage requirements, either as a single node, a virtualized High Availability solution or a Big Data cluster environment, Arxys | Sentio ensures uninterrupted data access and protection that scales up seamlessly.

Self-healing check-sums, atomic writes and transactional copy-on-write I/O operations eliminate silent data corruption and ‘write-holes’ ensure warranted data integrity without compromise.  Additionally, S.M.A.R.T. attributes for all disks in the log files enable rapid detection of key early indicators of drive reliability to avoid disk failure. Your data is continuously and actively protected and optimized ensuring ultimate peace of mind.

High Availability Load-balanced Clusters with Ethernet, SAS or Fibre Channel connection delivers ironclad data security with SMB / NFS / iSCSI failover functionality in either local-local and/or in a metro-wide solution.

Arxys | Sentio High Availability Clusters with Ethernet, SAS or Fibre Channel connections ensure reliability and redundancy by intelligently eliminating single points of failure. The Standard HA Cluster Feature Pack (SAS, FC) enables High Availability for dual server nodes connected to a single shared storage system.

With the Advanced Metro HA Cluster Feature Pack (SAS, FC, Ethernet) you can achieve next level High Availability for two server nodes over an Ethernet LAN of up to 50 miles (80km), with distinct storage systems at each physical location (Dual Storage).


Storage | Secured

Off-site Data Protection in Arxys | Sentio delivers a winning strategy for Backup, Archiving and Disaster Recovery by enabling asynchronous replication to local sites or co-locations. This way, servers with crucial data can be easily and instantly restored in case of an unexpected disaster. The Off-site Data Protection functionality can create unlimited, consistent, real time snapshots and asynchronously replicate snapshot deltas to local or remote destinations to deliver true data security.

Additionally, replication tasks can be scheduled according to your specific requirements for secure archiving. Secure encryption enhances security even further in case of malicious attacks, while buffered data replication significantly increases the efficiency of storage environments orchestrated by Arxys | Sentio. All management functionality can be executed via the Command Line Interface (CLI) as well for additional fine tuned control. Arxys | Sentio software is pre-built with VMware vSphere Storage APIs – Array Integration (VAAI) for iSCSI data acceleration and virtual machine management simplicity.


Storage | Recovered

Off-site Data Protection provides consistent snapshots of chosen resources and asynchronous replication to remote (or local) destinations. Arxys | Sentio Off-site Data Protection effectively prevents data loss and minimizes the recovery time with high-speed Disaster Recovery protocols, lowering the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) in every backup strategy. It allows setting up an application-consistent backup with a retention interval as a Disaster Recovery plan for virtual environments based on VMware. The software does not require the installation of any backup agent. This way, servers with crucial data can be easily and instantly restored in case of an unexpected disaster.

Arxys | Sentio delivers unlimited snapshots and clones. In many legacy solutions, the limit for snapshots is under 255. Arxys | Sentio allows unlimited snapshots and auto-snapshots that can be remotely activated via CLI and enable easy cloning, versioning and backup.

Your data is secured, protected and recoverable with Arxys | Sentio. Bring enterprise storage solutions to every level of your organization with the breakthrough value and resilience of Arxys Software Orchestrated Storage platforms.
