Cleversafe, a provider of storage offerings, has expanded its dispersed storage network system with the launch of dsNet Cabinet 2200, a dispersed storage system, as well as new versions of its Accesser appliance and Slicestor storage servers.
The company claims that the new dsNet Cabinet 2200 has the ability to scale from terabytes to petabytes of storage. It is an integrated rack that includes 18 Slicestor servers, two Accesser appliances, one dsNet Manager appliance, a 48-port multi-layer ethernet switch, and 432 TB of storage capacity. In addition, it also comes with the Omnience Storage Management software, a browser-based application that provides provisioning, fault management and performance monitoring tools.
According to Cleversafe, the new Accesser 2100 router divides data into a user-defined number of slices using Information Dispersal Algorithms (IDAs), disperses and retrieves data throughout the network, and distributes the slices to the Slicestor storage appliances. The enhancements include expanded connectivity options such as 10Gb/s ethernet, and ECC memory.
The Slicestor 2100 and 2200 Storage servers stores slices from the Accesser and can be deployed in a single rack in a data centre or distributed around in a multi-site environment. The new enhancements include utilising 2TB drives, and an integrated USB Flash Drive and simplified drive replacement, the company said.
The company said that the new 2100 servers now offers 8TB capacity per 1U box, while the 2200 servers provide 24TB capacity per 2U box.
Chris Gladwin, CEO of Cleversafe, said: With 2TB drives and storage systems swell to multi-terabytes to petabytes, using Information Dispersal Algorithms for tunable data protection is now at an inflection point in the market. Our resilient storage solutions are a perfect fit for organisations that needed a flexible way to store their valuable data, particularly within the cloud, as we can deliver on making data always available, bit-perfect, and reliable over its lifetime.
