Combine industry standard hardware with feature rich software.
We can help you to embrace the advantages of software-defined storage by designing a custom, scalable and flexible solution that will support your application specific needs. Commodity hardware helps drive efficiency savings within your data-centre. This could be anything from a Windows Spaces or open-source ZFS server cluster with industry standard servers and JBODs, to a petabyte-scale object storage distributed compute cluster.
Improve application management with consolidated infrastructure.
If you are looking to refresh or scale-out your production infrastructure for virtualised applications, you could benefit from the greater flexibility, improved management and reduced latency that hyper-converged infrastructure offers. Instead of purchasing a hypervisor, some servers, an all flash array and storage switching, you can deploy an appliance containing the four elements; compute, storage, networking and virtualisation. With some intelligent software providing resource management, and enabling you to simply scale performance and capacity, you can deploy and scale-out clustered solutions in minutes.
For storing and sharing large amounts of unstructured data.
For those with modest Windows or Linux environments, latest generation affordable NAS appliances may replace ageing file servers and simplify management. For those with larger capacity or higher performance requirements then 10Gb scale out NAS clusters can store large amounts of capacity within a single namespace.
Examples of solutions we've provided include mirrored clustered NAS appliances for a High Availability (HA) trading system, scale-out clustered NAS systems for storing hundreds of terabytes of evidential data, and HA ZFS storage appliances to support very large SQL databases.
We also provide a tightly integrated petabyte scale unified NAS/SAN solution for mission critical requirements requiring reliability. Scaling into hundreds of terabytes and delivering huge performance, this solution will support the all of your storage requirements in one easy to manage system.
Affordable, scalable, VMware certified block based storage.
We can help you to select and implement a SAN without compromising on reliability, availability or performance. These include extremely low latency systems with high bandwidth 16Gb Fibre Channel (FC) interfaces for mission critical environments, as well as VMware certified 10GbE iSCSI arrays.
We've designed solutions including a stretched fibre channel cluster with synchronous mirroring for hosting a Virtual Machine (VM) estate, and accelerated a mix of SQL and Exchange databases utilising the latest flash technology. If you need to accelerate application performance then perhaps you're looking at PCIe SSDs, an iSCSI hybrid storage system or all flash array?
When you need to deploy large amounts of capacity, we can help you to implement a scale-out storage solution using the latest high-density systems.
For extremely large capacity data storage requirements it makes sense to try to reduce the amount of rack space required in your data centre or server room. By consolidating capacity into high density servers, or storage enclosures, you will be able to store more of you data on less hardware. This reduces the footprint in your server room or data-centre, and creates energy savings by lowering power and cooling requirements.
We integrate reliable JetStor high density storage systems with the latest SSDs, spinning drives and helium filled enterprise capacity drives from HGST. We have created industry leading solutions featuring extremely high-density 4U, 2.5" and 3.5" 64 bay and 80 bay systems for bulk storage projects. If you just need bulk capacity, we can deploy up to 8PB of raw disk capacity in a standard depth 42U data cabinet. You'll need a reinforced floor and a rugged data cabinet to support this configuration which we provide too. Are you amazed yet? Ask us how we do it.
