Intelligent, software-defined cloud storage with scalable performance and capacity
Leveraging cloud computing concepts, we built a new enterprise-grade storage cloud system in which multiple tenants can run VPSA® Storage Array or VPSA® Object Storage on the same physical machines without ever interfering with one another. Each user maintains predictable performance, full data privacy and security, and full elasticity.
Zadara Storage Cloud Components
The Zadara Storage Cloud is built upon standardized, cost-effective x86 servers and is enabled by our patented software technology that creates a virtualizing data storage resource abstraction layer. Every Storage Node is interconnected using multiple, redundant 40Gb connections using advanced iSER (RDMA) to minimize latency and dramatically improve performance.
Virtual, independent controller pairs, each access their own, distributed dedicated drives to define a user’s VPSA storage array within the cloud. The virtualization and isolation of resources enables the Zadara Storage Cloud to grow to hundreds of nodes while keeping workloads isolated from one another, delivering applications with predictable performance and cloud storage customers a Quality of Service.
Zadara Storage Cloud Deployment
Deployed on-site or at colocation facilities, the Zadara Storage Cloud is designed to service enterprise-grade hot, high-speed primary workloads and warm/cold backup and repository workloads while keeping each isolated from one another. Choose from a custom drive mix of SSDs, high-RPM SAS drives, and 6TB 7200RPM repository drives based on performance and cost demands.
Redundancy was architected at every level of the Zadara Storage Cloud, ensuring a safe, secure enterprise storage solution. Component failures are self-healing, using seamless automatic recovery.
Zadara Storage has been awarded the “Product of the Year” award by TechTarget for the category “Storage Systems: Disk and Hybrid Systems” with the top honor of “GOLD”.
