A Software-Defined Storage Engine
StorONE Does for Storage What Virtualization did for Servers
StorONE is leading the modernization of software-defined data storage. If you want a more efficient storage solution with improved performance, capacity, and security, keep reading.
The StorONE Engine has four main innovative developments, which set us apart from the rest. One enterprise storage platform, you can save up to 50% on your storage costs, fully recover from a cyberattack, and have continuous availability of your information. Plus, you will save time since we’ve also eliminated costly legacy storage stacks.
What Are Those Innovations?
Cacheless Architecture: Rewritten IO Storage Stack
The usage of three-decade old storage IO stacks has required each workload to be processed through their own layer, introducing latency and inefficiencies, which have been hidden by more powerful CPUs.With recent developments limiting per-core CPU performance from increasing any further, we decided it was time for a modernized approach.
We have revolutionized the storage IO stack with our single-layered StorONE Engine. This powerful engine will allow you to extract maximum value from modern storage hardware while hitting high performance.
The StorONE Engine has modernized the three-decade old storage IO stack with its single-layered storage engine, allowing you to reap maximum value from modern storage hardware.
The StorONE Engine is capable of reaching performance heights of over 1 million IOPS with just 12 NVMe flash drives!
You can also use high density hard disk drives without fear of long rebuild times.
Optimized Data Placement: Enhanced Auto-Tiering Technology
StorONE just took hybrid storage to the next level with their new auto-tiering algorithm. Data is automatically moved to a hard disk when incoming writes aren't present, ensuring optimal capacity on your flash tier.
Optimized Data Placement is lightning fast - with 8GB/sec per VOLUME and up to 700 TB per day, you get all of the cost savings without any performance issues that are commonly associated with legacy systems.
vRAID: Advanced Erasure Coding
Traditional RAID has lost its effectiveness in protecting against drive failure due to increasing per drive density.
Legacy erasure coding is too slow for production workloads.
The StorONE Engine's vRAID offers an efficient and high-performing rewriting of the erasure coding algorithm, enabling data resiliency and performance suitable for any production workload, no matter redundancy settings.
It supports drives of different densities and allows them to mix with drives of different capacities in the same volume with no data migration or need for extra software licensing fees.
vRAID rebuild times are the fastest in the industry today, returning a volume of 20TB hard disk drives to full protection within three hours.
Data Services Orchestration
The StorONE engine also provides a complete suite of enterprise data services, like snapshots (vSnap), replication (vReplicate), and encryption (vSecure). Another important innovation is the engine's ability to leverage the common metadata table to orchestrate these data services to interact with IO efficiently, enabling IT to use them almost limitlessly without impacting performance.
How Are These Innovations Applied? Introducing the Virtual Storage Container
The StorONE Engine revolutionizes the enterprise data storage platform with its ability to orchestrate snapshots (vSnap), replication (vReplicate) and encryption (vSecure). Its common metadata table allows administrators to effortlessly apply these policies across Virtual Storage Containers (VSCs) without sacrificing performance.
The StorONE Engine’s flexibility is unmatched, each container can have individually tailored settings for auto-tiering, vRAID,vSNAP, vReplicate, etc., while all VSC’s are able to share media throughout the entire system.
