StorONE's S1 Enterprise Storage Platform goes beyond basic data rollback functionality to provide invincible data protection to help organizations not only recover quickly but also retain data indefinitely, without impacting performance.
S1:vRAID advances the standard RAID technology found in most primary storage systems by using erasure coding. It is a protection method standard in object storage systems but not in high-performance storage systems. Like other components of S1, the team at StorONE redeveloped erasure coding from the ground up for use in modern storage infrastructures. We've developed S1:vRAID to deliver all the benefits of erasure coding without the performance penalty.
With S1:vRAID organizations can set their protection level per volume or workload. IT can set mission-critical workloads to survive three or more drive failures but set their less critical workloads to survive only two or even one drive failure. The settings are all customizable per volume and don’t impact system performance.
S1:HA is StorONE's High Availability feature creates a cluster between two S1 servers so that if one fails, data is still accessible. Each server (physical or virtual) is active, so the performance load is automatically split between the two systems. If one S1 server goes down, then the surviving server automatically takes over the other server's LUNs until the failed server is repaired or replaced.
S1:Snap is StorONE’s snapshot feature that gives S1 the ability to take an unlimited number of snapshots per volume and retain those snapshots indefinitely. The quantity, age, and nesting level of the snapshots do not impact performance. Snapshots can be set to read-only, protecting them from ransomware, immutable protecting them from rogue users or to read/write to enable data reuse.
S1:Sync is StorONE’s replication feature that enables an organization to survive a site failure with no data loss or application interruption. S1:Sync replicates data between multiple S1 systems, either synchronously or asynchronously.
S1:DirectWrite is StorONE's cacheless architecture – No NVDIM, MRAM, NVRAM. It's performance numbers are direct to media, and lowers overall storage server cost while increasing data integrity and simplifying HA design.
