Coraid EtherDrive ZX: High-Performance File Storage
EtherDrive ZX storage appliances combine an innovative and feature-rich file system with scalable, massively parallel Ethernet storage technology.
File Storage Built on Coraid EtherDrive
Unstructured data is growing at a faster rate than ever before within enterprises. Companies are grappling with the ballooning cost and complexity of managing block and file storage infrastructure at scale.
EtherDrive ZX is a modern, feature-rich file storage appliance designed to work with Coraid EtherDrive block storage.
An alternative to legacy NAS architectures, EtherDrive ZX is ideally suited for public and private cloud environments, video and big data applications, where rapid scalability, ease of use and flexibility are important in a file-based storage system.
|File System||Powered by Oracle Solaris ZFS with 128-bit addressability|
|File-level Protocol||NFS v3 and v4; CIFS SMB v1|
|Storage Efficiency||Storage efficiency features include flexible provisioning with space guarantees, thin provisioning, user, group and filesystem quotas, and more|
|Hybrid Storage Pools||Optimized storage hierarchy with pools of storage containing DRAM, flash cache, and disk drives|
|Data Compression||Can select among 4 compression algorithms for tuning the right mix between application performance and storage|
|RAID||Striping, mirroring, triple-mirroring, single-parity RAID-Z1, double-parity RAID-Z2, triple-parity RAID-Z3, wide stripes|
|Remote Management||HTTPS / SSH / SNMP v1 and v2c with downloadable MIB, read-only / IPMI|
|Snapshots||Both Administrator and End-user accessible and manageable (security via RBAC), read-only mode|
|Clones||Writable snapshots created instantly via pointers without space or performance impact|
|Data Integrity||Protects against both ‘silent data corruption’ during disk storage, miscopies, and mistransmissions via checksums and other protections. Self-healing capabilities mean that the bad data is detected and automatically repaired using the correct data (for RAID configurations).|
|Directory Services||NIS, AD, LDAP|
|Network Services||NTP, DNS, DHCP, SMTP, and Kerberos|
|Local Replication||Supports replication within same ZX Storage Appliance configuration|
|Remote Replication||Supports replication from one EtherDrive ZX Storage Appliance product to another|
