EXTREME Series – Features

FlexPool

FlexPool

Brings together flash and NVRAM in a unified data pool.

We created the FlexPool technology to ease the pain of managing storage growth. It solves traditional storage problems like difficult scalability, low performance and business interruption caused by downtime for updates/upgrades.

product-feature-flexpool-expansion

Live expansion

Forget about downtime and performance penalties, pool growth can happen live while the storage is in production.

product-feature-flexpool-scalability

Unlimited scalability

Increasing the size of any FlexPool will not be a problem. Each pool is theoretically limited to 300 million petabytes.

product-feature-flexpool-hybrid-extreme

Hybrid acceleration

FlexPool keeps “hot data” in a fast NVRAM cache layer. This creates an efficient mix of flash disks and high perf. NVRAM.

product-feature-flexpool-transport

Easy portability

With FlexPool, data pools, including their snapshots and shares, can be easily exported and imported between Syneto storage arrays.

product-feature-flexpool-freedom

Hardware freedom

We believe you shouldn’t be tied to proprietary hardware controllers that force you to always buy from the same vendor.

product-feature-flexpool-upgrade

Instant upgrades

Upgrade storage array capacity by simply adding JBODS full of disks to existing SAS ports and expanding the FlexPool.

InstaSnap

InstaSnap

Point-in-time data snapshots for easy backup, replication and recovery.

Don’t be part of the 93% of organisations which file for bankruptcy after loosing their data. Exiting storage disaster recovery solutions create slow and expensive backups and replications which are limited in number and lead to increased costs.

product-feature-instasnap-unlimited

Instantaneous & unlimited

InstaSnap technology make your array capable of instantaneous, live, point-in-time “images” of your whole data.

product-feature-instasnap-scheduling

Auto-scheduling

A time/budget saving tech. that allows automatic snapshot scheduling with variable retention policies for folders/virtual disks.

product-feature-instasnap-incremental

Incremental replication

Achieve true Disaster Recovery with fast incremental snapshot replication between sites with low bandwidth consumption.

product-feature-instasnap-recovery

Fast recovery

With InstaSnap, rollbacks, cloning, and any other type of point-in-time data recovery operations happen almost instantaneously.

product-feature-instasnap-efficiency

Space efficiency

Snapshots and clones are create instantaneously, with zero space allocation. They take up space only when data changes.

product-feature-instasnap-overhead

Zero overhead

Snapshots with InstaSnap do not use resources and do not have any impact on the the performance of your storage array.

product-feature-virtualunity

VirtualUnity

VMware integration for fast and easy virtual machine management.

By 2016, 70% of storage deployments will be private for clouds and virtual servers. Existing arrays don’t fully integrate with VMware, making VM management, deployment and backup a difficult, inconsistent and costly process.

product-feature-virtualunity-snapshots

Symmetric snapshots

Unifies backup between storage and hypervisor to automatically create and consolidate snapshots of every VM.

product-feature-virtualunity-vmconsistency

Consistent VMs. Always

VirtualUnity makes memory consistent snapshots of VMware VMs, automatically quiescing them during snapshots.

product-feature-virtualunity-provisioning

Fast provisioning

With VirtualUnity, additional datastore space provisioning is done automatically, and expanding a LUN will expand its datastore.

product-feature-virtualunity-management

Unified management

For ease of use and time efficiency you can browse and see the status of your virtual datacenter directly from the storage UI.

product-feature-virtualunity-vxclone

VxClone tool

This tool allows you to instantly clone and deploy new virtual machines in seconds lowering administration time and costs.

product-feature-virtualunity-vmrecovery

Fast VM recovery

Eliminates the pain of complex recoveries by giving you the ability to quickly restore your VMs in seconds.

IntegriCheck

IntegriCheck

Ensures long-term data integrity with smart control instruments.

The job of any storage array boils down to this: when reading a data it should always return the same that was previously written. Traditional solutions can’t detect data corruptions caused by disk firmware bugs, drive errors, controller problems or hardware RAID vulnerabilities.

product-feature-integricheck-integrity

End-to-end data integrity

Preserves long-term data consistency with checksums, instead of HDD sector-size modifications or dedicated hardware.

product-feature-integricheck-selfhealing

Self-healing data

Like a living creature, your array has the ability to heal data structures by returning corrupted sections to a working state.

product-feature-integricheck-silentcorruption

Silent-corruption immunity

Your array becomes immune to silent data corruption caused by bit rot, phantom writes, DMA parity errors and driver bugs.

product-feature-integricheck-softwareraid

Software RAID

Expensive hardware RAID controllers belong in the past. Syneto arrays use smart software RAID to ensure high redundancy levels.

product-feature-integricheck-warranty

Extended warranty

Gain peace of mind with the Syneto StorageCare program. Disks in your storage array carry a 5 years warranty.

product-feature-powercluster

PowerCluster

Active-active high-availability cluster for mission critical environments.

When hosting 100s of VMs and GBs of important company data, downtime is not an option. Current storage solutions require downtime for updates/upgrades and waste 50% of available resources by keeping 1 node in passive mode.

product-feature-powercluster-activeactive

Active-active HA

Eliminates the single point of failure by linking multiple Syneto arrays in a high availability cluster where all nodes are active.

product-feature-powercluster-nondisruptive

Non-disruptive ops.

Eliminates any downtime created by hardware replacements, storage upgrades or software updates.

product-feature-powercluster-nodebalancing

Node load balancing

Get the most out of your cluster by efficiently balancing the workload between storage nodes to prevent idle resources.

product-feature-powercluster-failover

Automatic failover

In the unlikely event of a complete node failure, all storage operations are automatically moved to the functioning node.

SpaceBoost

SpaceBoost

Data reduction techniques to squeeze more data in the same space.

We believe in a greener, more efficient storage. We squeeze as much data as possible in the same amount of space reducing environmental impact and costs. Existing storage products apply off-line reduction methods, limited to 1 volume/filesystem and using slower algorithms.

product-feature-spaceboost-compression

In-line Compression

SpaceBoost uses an in-line block-by-block approach which increases IO efficiency and reduces write sizes for better performance.

product-feature-spaceboost-deduplication

In-line Deduplication

Performs live scans of incoming data blocks. Duplicate data blocks are automatically removed to save space.

product-feature-spaceboost-thinprovisoning

Thin Provisioning

This data reduction method allocates space only when and where it is required, ensuring it is not wasted by over-provisioning.

product-feature-spaceboost-writeefficiency

Longer disk life

This technology greatly increases the lifespan of your disks by applying measures which limit the number of disk writes.

product-feature-spaceboost-spaceincrease

More data less space

With the SpaceBoost technology active, you can squeeze 2x-5x more data in the same amount of space, saving space and money.

product-feature-spaceboost-cpuotimised

Optimized reduction

For additional performance, data reduction algorithms are optimised for the latest generation of Intel E5 Xeon CPU’s.
