Enterprise Data Protections
Snapshot | Clone | Replication
Qsan array built-in data protection features protect your data under any circumstances without extra charge and without performance impact.
Qsan Data Protection Solution Advantages:
Multipath and failover
Instant rollback when virus attacks or accident deletes
Reduce the impact risks of disk failures
Protect data against disasters
Increase application availability
Automatic data synchronization to avoid traffic jam
Flexible configurations for various storage plans
Smart Data Management
SSD Caching | Fast Rebuild
Thin Provisioning | Seamless Roaming | Copy Migration
When the original storage planning or configuration doesn’t fit anymore, Qsan smart data management features can recover the status back to normal quickly and minimise the system risk.
Qsan SSD caching leverages the strengths of both SSDs and SAS/SATA hard drives to cost-effectively meet both high speed and large capacity requirements. It accelerates application performance by utilizing SSD drive as extended RAID controller cache for hot data while most of the cold data are stored in the hard drives.
Performance improvement is up to x 18 times.
Qsan Fast Rebuild only rebuilds the partitions with data. With embedded hardware RAID engine, it can greatly reduce the system loading, minimize the performance impact, and reduce rebuilding time as well.
The Thin provisioning feature provides efficient use of total available capacity, centralized management, data protection, flexible storage planning, and automatic extension when allocated space runs out.
QiSOE 2.0: Qsan Hardware Offload Engine
AegisSAN LX series adopts a dedicated CPU core to process iSCSI and Fibre Channel packets. From our lab result, both iSCSI and Fibre Channel storage systems have significant performance improvement.
iSCSI write throughput x1.5 times faster FC IOPS performance x1.6 times faster
