New iSCSI SAN Solution from Overland Storage Delivers Effortless Data Management and Data Protection, Optimised for Virtualised Server Environments
Optimised for Use in Virtual Server Environments
VMware: The SnapServer SAN S2000 integrates directly into the VMware management application to provide a host of advantages. These include: simplified datastore creation wizards for provisioning targets, the ability to provision storage for ESX clusters within VMware utilising customized SnapServer tools, single interface configuration for SnapServer targets, and VMware high availability for ESX datastores using native VMware utilities (DRS, HA, VMotion) with the SnapServer SAN mirroring option.
Microsoft Hyper-V: The SnapServer SAN S2000 is certified to support Windows Hyper-V Server for Microsoft virtualisation deployments. With customised tools developed for the SnapServer SAN it enables simplified management of Hyper-V for back-up utilising VSS (volume shadow copy services), replication and mirroring. In addition the SnapServer SAN supports direct pass through access for guest virtual machines enabling higher performance and security.
Effortless Data Management and Data Protection
The SnapServer SAN S2000 is the first iSCSI SAN solution to fully integrate autoprovisioning, an automated capacity expansion feature. With this feature, storage volumes are automatically expanded based on predefined policy without requiring intervention. Disk usage is also tracked, giving IT administrators the ability to easily monitor and manage disk capacity consumption across the organisation. Companies with standalone or clustered Windows servers running business critical applications, such as Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server, can utilise the SnapServer SAN solution's active-active failover capabilities to ensure high availability and maximum uptime. Advanced replication functionality that supports up to 256 snapshots and failover ensures data is protected and accessible at all times regardless of its location, while accelerating backup efficiency.
"Businesses large and small face similar data storage growth challenges - but often without the resources or expertise to effectively deploy a SAN. They need a solution that can be easily deployed, is simple to manage and can accommodate growing amounts of data," said Benjamin S. Woo, program vice president of enterprise storage systems at IDC. "Especially as more companies deploy virtualised environments, it becomes even more complex to manage data growth over the long term. With autoprovisioning technology like that in Overland SnapServer SAN S2000, companies can ensure that their storage solution can support business growth without having to pre-determine storage requirements or running the risk of over-provisioning."
