Okay, we’d understand if you’re not an IT guy (or gal) – that our newest SAN (storage area network) for Virtual Server integration and hosting wouldn’t set your heart all aflutter. After all, it’s just a black box and one of many that keep our data center humming.
But what does matter is that it keeps data humming. With a 5,000 IOPS (input-output operation per second) you can almost hear it whizzing by – well not really – but it’s fast. The new SAN blends the performance powers of flash and disk into a hybrid storage system with impressive capabilities. to accelerate application performance and enhance efficiency.
In brief, while some of the action is behind the scenes, so to speak, you’ll see faster website loading times and page response, higher data integrity and protection, less downtime – all with more robust back-end hardware that includes redundant storage.
Instantaneous Point-in-Time Snapshots
Unplanned downtime, outages, and failures can have significant legal and financial impact, as well as intangible costs. If your site goes down, automated, point-in-time snapshots protect data, diminish the possibility of downtime. The snapshots occupy minimal space, allowing for frequent, instant backups and delivering excellent Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs). Backup and restore data in minutes with quick failover for continuous operation, should a disaster occur.
In-line Data Compression
All data is compressed in real time, offering between 30-75% capacity savings, depending on the workload. This solution provides incredible performance and reduced capacity while maximizing productivity throughout the virtual server environment.
Reduces storage management headaches — simplifying and integrating storage-administration means you never run out of space and helps ensure optimal performance.
Provides frequent heartbeats and immediate visibility into error conditions, sometimes discretely resolving issues before you have even initiated contact. Issues are remotely diagnosed and remediated before they manifest as downtime and disrupt your enterprise.
Flash-Based Dynamic Cache
Accelerate read access to application data by holding a copy of active “hot” data in flash; you benefit from high read throughput and low latency.
Write-Optimized Data Layout
Data written by a host is first aggregated or coalesced, then written sequentially as a full stripe to a pool of disk; CASL’s sweeping process also consolidates freed up disk space for future writes. You benefit from fast sub-millisecond writes and very efficient disk utilization.
Created instantly, you get great space efficiency and performance on cloned volumes, making them ideal for virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and test and development environments.
Top Notch VPS/Cloud Hosting
You may or may not know that a Virtual Private Server runs its own operating system in a secure and private environment and cannot be accessed or affected by the other virtual servers running on the same host server. This configuration gives you the same Administrator-level access as a dedicated server.
Users share system resources, such as the CPU and memory, but unlike shared hosting (a website on the same server as many other websites) the file system is fully partitioned. This means you get a guaranteed share of the server’s resources. You can install your own software, add as many websites as you want.
