Mayastor Enterprise Edition
Mayastor Enterprise Storage Server software for Linux provides powerful Fibre-Channel target services to heterogenous SAN clients; Linux, Solaris, Windows, and others. The software connects with your existing open storage systems that can have parallel SCSI, SATA, IDE, and FC technology thereby leveraging your current investment.
Mayastor Enterprise Edition easily integrates with standard Linux servers to provide intelligent storage platform that delivers a multitude of disk services; capacity planning, data availability and recovery at your fingertips to build a new robust network storage infrastructure or to enhance your existing one.
- Centralized management
By keeping the storage systems under one central server it eliminates the need to manage multiple-device-interfaces, administrative commands and service-level requirements from multiple operating systems.
- Uses open heterogenous storage systems
Mayastor supports aggregation of storage systems from different vendors with parallel SCSI, SATA, IDE and FC technology. It also works with synthetic block devices such as Linux raid devices MD, LVM and many others. This means it is possible to provide sophisticated RAID level such as RAID-6 even with ordinary JBOD disks and yet a powerful host-offloaded RAID protection for your application server.
- Highly available & reliable storage
Storage virtualization by utilizing RAID technology, data replication, and storage clustering provides robust highly available & reliable services to the entire storage network infrastructure and not just to individual server with direct attached storage.
- Dynamic resource allocation
Virtualization provides dynamic storage allocation and expansion through simple administrative tasks. Your expensive direct attached storage is no longer wasted behind individual server.
- Simplifies storage administration.
Since multiple devices are consolidated into a single device, management can be simplified and reduces the burden on the storage administrator.
- Maximized storage ulitization.
Consolidation of all storage resources into a virtual storage pool means unused capacity is readily available for allocation when it is needed. Any over allocated storage can be dynamically reduced. Furthermore, new disks can be added to the pool for new applications or increased demand are anticipated.
- Better business responsiveness.
With dynamic resource allocation new applications or increased demand can be readily satisfied from the storage pool with little or no network downtime. Reduced downtime means increased business productivity.
