Coraid EtherDrive SRX: Scalable Block Storage
Designed for performance, scalability, and simplicity, EtherDrive SRX storage arrays enable a scalable Ethernet storage architecture that is ideally suited to environments experiencing rapid, unpredictable data growth.
Building Blocks for Ethernet Storage
The EtherDrive SRX series provides the foundation for the EtherDrive storage system by enabling low latency, high bandwidth data transfer between hosts and data on the network. Each SRX runs a distributed storage operating system to pool individual systems together into a single platform.
The SRX works in conjunction with the EtherDrive ZX appliances to provide logical volume management and features such snapshots, clones, and remote replication.
|RAID Support||JBOD and RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 are supported with multiple automatic global spares|
|Automatic LUN Discovery||LUNs are automatically discovered by the host as systems are added to the network|
|Automatic Multipathing||Automatically load balances read/write I/O across all available ports and paths of the network|
|Single Instance LUN View||A persistent single instance of each LUN is presented to the host system no matter how many network paths are available, eliminating multiple representations of the same LUN|
|Simple LUN Naming||Simple major.minor numbering scheme is easy to understand and remember|
|Automatic Congestion Control||Packet queues and retransmissions are automatically adjusted to mitigate network congestion|
|LUN Masking||A mechanism to control access to stored data|
|VLAN Zoning||VLAN tags restrict access to authorized LUNs|
|Automatic Global Hot Spare Disks||Disk failures with a RAID LUN are automatically repaired using an available spare disk within the chassis|
|Drive Flexibility||Mix SATA, SAS, and SSD drives in the same chassis to customize performance and capacity|
