Integrated Data Protection
Eliminate data silos. Enable and configure enterprise-class data protection with scale-out storage, and enjoy simplified management.
Storage on the Go
OneXafe employs a seamless scale-out cluster architecture supporting one or multiple OneXafe nodes and a single global file system. It delivers the flexibility for organizations to mix-and-match SSDs types (SATA, SAS) and capacity within the same OneXafe node and within a OneXafe cluster. As business storage requirements change, OneXafe is extremely agile; simply add any number of drives, at any time, and in any capacity granularity to meet your storage requirements. OneXafe automatically pools the new storage within the existing global storage pool. No disruption to applications or users. No configuration settings to complete. No mouse clicks. No command line entries. No storage PhD required.
Scale-Out Storage for Virtual Environments
OneXafe uniquely supports VMware environments by enabling virtual machines to utilize scale-out NFS datastores. Consolidate multiple NFS datastores into a single OneXafe Cluster and scale to multiple PBs with OneXafe’s advanced data reduction.
- High Performance: OneXafe 5410 is an all-flash array for consolidating performance-hungry virtual machines.
- More Capacity: Simply scale-out OneXafe by adding drives or OneXafe nodes and the virtual servers instantly aquire additional storage capacity— with near-zero configuration.
Features & Benefits:
Agile and Affordable
OneXafe’s agile ability to add storage at any time comes with the additional benefit of delivering significant cost savings. StorageCraft’s bring- your-own-drive philosophy treats drives as a commodity, enabling you to purchase drives at retail. Avoiding the 10x markup from legacy storage vendors quickly results in substantial cost savings compared to other storage solutions. Combined with OneXafe’s powerful inline deduplication and compression, storage utilization is maximized and waste is minimized. The net result is an enterprise-class all-flash storage solution at $0.30/GB.
Flexible Multi-Site Replication
Implement disaster recovery with asynchronous multi-site replication. Employ a flexible one-to-one, one-to-many, manyto-one bi-directional replication architecture with multiple OneXafe clusters. Implement exactly the configuration that suits the business needs of geographically distributed environments. Only deduplicated and compressed data is replicated, ensuring the transfer is bandwidth efficient. Other vendors require the source and target storage infrastructure to be identical. StorageCraft does not impose any such restrictions for the utmost flexibility.
Ease of use is not an afterthought with OneXafe. It is easily installed in less than 15 minutes, provisioned, and available to serve data with one-click configuration. Simply insert at least two drives, plug in Ethernet, and power it on. It’s that easy. To add more storage, simply add drives and the capacity is added to the same global storage pool. To increase availability or performance, additional OneXafe nodes can be added and automatically configured without interruption to applications or users. This provides organizations with non-disruptive scalability for their business.
StorageCraft’s distributed file system is built on top of a finegrained content-addressable, distributed object store with a hashed cluster architecture that has small but variable-sized immutable objects as its foundation. This underlying technology allows OneXafe Cluster to fully protect the stored information without legacy RAID technologies. OneXafe transparently replicates and intelligently distributes the data objects across multiple drives within a failure domain and protects against both drive and OneXafe failures. In case of failure, data objects are redistributed and rebalanced to ensure full protection.
Integrated Data Protection
OneXafe offers organizations the option to enable and configure enterprise-class data protection with secondary storage. It provides flexible deployment to accommodate various workload requirements. At the same time, it significantly reduces costs associated with primary and secondary storage as well as data protection software. OneXafe removes the need for siloed solutions, minimizes costs incurred from both standalone hardware and software solutions, and eliminates redundancy in management.
The high-performance, scale-out OneXafe 5410 addresses the I/O blender effect in virtual server environments. Provisioning, managing, and scaling out NFS datastores is simple with no configuration required.
Login/boot storms can bring any storage to its knees in a VDI environment. Not so with all-flash scale-out storage. OneXafe’s powerful storage reduction technologies, such as inline deduplication and compression, keep the storage footprint in check.
OneXafe 5410 delivers the performance required to improve recovery time objectives (RTOs) significantly at a price point that is comparable to legacy disk systems.
At the core of OneXafe is a patented distributed object-based file system that delivers universal data access by providing NFS and SMB access to users and applications. Data protection services are directly integrated into OneXafe's distributed file system, delivering powerful backup and recovery, with a work flow optimized for simplified management. OneXafe tightly integrates with StorageCraft Cloud Services, with a single click it provides business continuity of data, network, and application recovery in StorageCraft's Cloud.
OneXafe's architecture is designed from the ground up and is a collection of interconnected, scalable, and easily manageable microservices that deliver robust data protection and storage access. It consists of three main components: Data Protection Services, Agents, and StorageCraft OneSystem. OneSystem is the management framework that orchestrates and manages the activities within Data Protection Services. The Data Protection Services deliver storage access and data protection procedures including backup, restore, replication, and storage. Agents are adapters for protecting physical servers and virtual machines (VMs) to deliver higher SLAs.
