Overview

X-EDP simplifies storage deployment, management, administration, and protection, delivers the flexibility to a storage solution for any data, any application and any hardware as a unified data platform. It frees customers from limitations of sub-optimal storage arrays and incomplete software solutions of traditional storage.

Any data

Any data

X-EDP provides the desired data services with standard interfaces and needed SLA for block, file or object, data of structured, unstructured or semi-structured. It enables users to focus on data and innovation rather than the storage facility itself or routine tasks.

Any application

Any application

Designed with true distributed systems DNA, X-EDP could deploy workloads intelligently and get better and smarter as it scales, defying conventional wisdom and transforming a cluster of x86 servers into a highly-flexible, cost-effective storage system.

Any hardware

Any hardware

The loose-coupling architecture of X-EDP allows users to leverage their own commodity hardware to create a total storage solution, build agile, scalable, loosely coupled environments. Users could scale-out storage nodes or even scale-up typical boxes or interconnections, keep the infrastructure up to date and get benefits from free hardware adoption.

Key Capabilities

Data Availability

Data Availability

Based on smart data distribution algorithm, X-EDP uses EC and Replication to ensure data consistency. Beside data redundant, X-EDP provides availability zones, ROW snapshot, consistent group snapshot and off-host data protection, cloud backup/archiving, simple data protection for remote and branch offices, making data availability at anytime, anywhere.

Data Management

Data Management

X-EDP provides ease of use for administrators through an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI),The centralized deployment and management could help customers to create policy-driven storage resource with the intuitive visual workflow management. Policy-driven storage management adds intelligence about data - providing deeper levels of classification, indexing according SLA.

Data Visibility

Data Visibility

X-EDP enables businesses to gain new, actionable insights of data, helps customers get deep visibility into data utilization and performance. The Google-like search provides the modern data viewer, enabling instant wildcard searches for any volume, file, or object ingested into the system. X-EDP provides the ability to manage block, file, object and cloud-based workloads from a single dashboard, as well as access to monitoring and alerting tools.

Use Cases

Physical

Physical

Due to various factors, including complex hardware configurations and regulatory compliance requirements, some physical servers and workstations cannot be virtualized. X-EDP provides standard interfaces that could empower the physical servers with the modern storage infrastructure.

Database

Database

Database Needs Performance, But NOT Just Performance. X-EDP provides desired availability and performance across instances with easy deployment. SDS solution balances price and performance, freeing customers from expensive tire-1 SAN solutions.

Backup

Backup

X-EDP provides an efficient platform for secondary data for backup, archiving, business continuity and disaster recovery. Built-in cloud and storage efficiency features streamline on and offsite data protection with the ideal economical efficiency and flexibility for long-term data retention.

File Sharing

File Sharing

XSKY pioneers SMB/CIFS and NFS for software defined scale-out solution, integrates NAS systems into customers’ Windows environment with minimal-to-no disruption, and connects them to existing authentication services such as LADP, Active Directory. X-EDP also supports SMB 3.0 to improve scalability and manageability for Hyper-V environments.

Cloud

Cloud

X-EDP provides jointly-supported, co-developed solution with OpenStack vendors through open-source interfaces. With built-in integration storage and authorization management with Cinder and Keystone, X-EDP provides an easier way of deployment and management.

Virtualization

Virtualization

X-EDP is compatible with most of the famous virtualization solutions including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM and XenServer. It provides hyper-converged and converged deployment methods, both promoting a streamlined IT infrastructure with lowered CAPEX and OPEX while delivering high scalability, flexibility and uncompromised performance and efficiency.

VDI

VDI

X-EDP takes advantage of memory and the latest high-performance flash storage options in modern servers and integrates data efficiency features to ensure the success of VDI environment. The Citrix Ready solution is considered as a direct replacement of the traditional expensive SAN infrastructure.

Big data

Big data

X-EDP enables any size of business to build their own foundation for Big Data Analytics with a Data Lake, a modernized data warehouse and scale-out storage for data consolidation. It allows Big Data accessibility using current and next-generation hardware and access methods to gain value through analytics.
