Why A Data-centric Multi-business Storage Platform is Necessary to Modern Enterprises?

Diverse applications emerge in modern enterprises. Coexistence of traditional applications and cloud applications lead to various data types including structured data as well as fast-growing unstructured data. As a result, enterprises are often forced to store block, file and object data in different devices, which further complicates the situation.Such isolated storage approach causes managerial problems.

管理复杂

Complicated management

Various storage devices and technologies result in high training costs and complicated operation and maintenance which requires large amount of manpower

锁定孤岛

Locked and isolated

Data are stored in different devices from different vendors, which makes it difficult for data share and flow. It’s hard to unify Disaster Recovery Solutions, compliance solutions and management on HW devices

缺乏弹性

Deficiency in elasticity

Lifecycle of legacy storage devices is usually 5 years. And migration of data causes huge negative impact on business and IT cost

Therefore, a pooled storage architecture is necessary for enterprises to store all data and support varied workloads. And SDS realizes “One Storage Platform for One Enterprise”.

Why XEDP

XEDP, as a distributed software-defined storage platform, supports complicated workloads with 3 major features:

Shared resources

XEDP serves all data types to unify resource management, breaks HW lock-in, balances data allocation in pool, simplifies persistent data protection and digs out potential value of existing data in a full scale

Elastic expansion

As a backend storage platform for multiple cloud platforms, unstructured data and big data, XEDP supports to scale-out from couple to hundreds of nodes on-the-fly in a single pool, to manage data in a visualized way with easy DevOps as well as built-in data protection for instant feedback to user’s innovation requirements

Support of multi-cloud

XEDP provides block, file and object data service with a single set of storage. Meanwhile, XEDP is certified to support multiple dedicated clouds and to back up data to public clouds, improving data reachability and flowability

Advantages

Multiple Interfaces

  • · Block storage supports standard RBD, SCSI, iSCSI, FC, broad virtualization platforms and database applications and satisfies requirements of SAN by cloud infrastructure, database and dev & test scenarios
  • · File storage supports standard NFS, CIFS, FTP, provides shared resources to unstructured data with high performance and large capacity and satisfies traditional NAS requirements including file share, OA, audio& video and others
  • · Object storage supports S3, NFS and HDFS, satisfies requirements of cloud backup and archiving scenarios and supports to apply mainstream backup software to local backup scenario

Open and Compatible

  • · Standard APIs provide storage service to cloud infrastructure and key applications
  • · HW-neutral design, selection on-demand, based on industry standard X86 servers with no limit on server and component brand
  • · Support multi-medium, compatible with SAS, near-line SAS, SATA HDD, SATA SSD, m.2 SSD, u.2 NVMe, etc.
  • · Support heterogenous servers and enjoy value-added benefits of HW’s continuous upgrade
  • · Support hybrid media, with different types of disks in a single node, in a single pool and even nodes of different brands or models in a single pool
  • · Certified CSI and compatible with Kubernetes

Multi-effect Data Management, Optimized Resource Configuration

  • · Data protection and backup: EC/replication, fault domain, ROW snapshot, Clone, backup, copy, etc.
  • · High space turnover rate: automatic thin provisioning, space recycle, tiered storage pool to improve utilization rate of storage resource
  • · Dynamic tuning of service quality: LUN QoS, recovery QoS for tidal scenarios
  • · User permissions: management of multi-tenant and quota helps build enterprise cloud storage resource with high flexibility and efficiency

Complete DR Solutions

  • · Support local and cross-site data protection and back up block data to object storage and cloud platform
  • · Three-site solution
  • · Stretched cluster solution

Typical Scenarios
