With more and more companies going digital, the files associated with Research and Development (R&D) and production are becoming increasingly essential. How enterprises store, manage, share, and use these files will therefore play a huge role in determining the efficiency of future operations.
The number of small files is growing at unprecedented speeds, causing Operations Per Second (OPS) to drop.
Although file networking is a relatively simple process, it places high requirements on the network environment, permissions, and security.
As files have now become production assets, enterprises must ensure zero data loss and uninterrupted access.
Supports multiple protocols — Service Message Block (SMB) V2.0/3.0, Network File System (NFS) V4.1/3.0, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), and Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) — to facilitate cross-platform file sharing; provides comprehensive data protection — such as cascaded snapshots, clones, sync. and async. replication, Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) backup, and antivirus — for reliable core files; and supports permission control policies, including tenant, quota, audit, multi-factor authentication, separation of rights, encryption, and destruction.
FlashLink intelligent algorithms and the End to End (E2E) Non-Volatile Memory express (NVMe) protocol improve OPS by 30% and bandwidth by 50%. The distributed file system is also shared globally and uses the directory balancing algorithm to eliminate controller bottlenecks, whereas the intelligent layout algorithm achieves 30% faster file traversal and location. This all-new hardware architecture simply provides a premium user experience.
SmartMatrix 3.0 fully-interconnected active-active architecture ensures services remain running stably even if seven out of eight controllers fail or an entire controller enclosure fails. The Solid State Drive (SSD) wear and anti-wear leveling also achieves 3 million hours of Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and the innovative Redundant Array of Independent Disks-Triple Parity (RAID-TP) tolerates the simultaneous failure of three disks, effectively addressing data protection issues in large-capacity SSDs. In addition, the HyperMetro gateway-free active-active solution for Network-Attached Storage (NAS) implements load balancing between two sites, with a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of zero and a Recovery Time Objective of approximately zero.
