User Requirements

A true unified storage solution is more than just a simple combination of block and file components, as today's data center applications and architectures are becoming more complicated. With the growth of enterprise business and the progress of digital transformation, traditional NAS+SAN solutions cannot cope with the ever-increasing demands of data storage and processing brought by complicated multi-virtualization and multi-application due to the following concerns:

  • How to achieve agility and stability when users need agile and easy-to-use storage for OpenStack while secure and reliable storage for virtualization?
  • How to ensure support of timely response to persistent volume and ecosystem of container?

Product Value

XEUS(XSKY Enterprise Unified Storage)is a unified storage product offered by XSKY, targeting at legacy architecture. XEUS provides file and block services with flexible SDS architecture, offering high-performance and unified solution with flexible scale-out, decoupling of hardware and software to users for key applications, file share and data archiving scenarios, such as multi-virtualization (VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V), VDI (Citrix Hypervisor), database (OLTP, OLAP) and others. The dedicated SSD accelerating engine helps solve the start-up storm under VDI scenario. Professional enterprise-level features, data protection and DR solutions ensure easy connection to legacy applications and allow users to experience the various value-added advantages of SDS as well as the advantages of SAN+NAS unified storage.
