OS for Storage Management

SCALABLE NFS and SMB/CIFS PERFORMANCE

Demanding NAS environments need full-featured NFS and SMB/CIFS functionality with scalable performance.  Avere OS delivered as a virtual, software-only solution or physical, hardware-included appliance provides just that, regardless of where your data is stored – on premises or in the cloud. FlashCloudTM software translates NFS and SMB/CIFS operations into object API calls and creates a feature-rich file system in the cloud.
 

DYNAMIC, AUTOMATIC TIERING FOR CHANGING WORKLOADS

Adjust how storage is allocated on the fly as workloads shift between applications with different resource demands. Avere OS automatically promotes active “hot” data to the fastest tier for optimal performance and demotes less accessed “cold” data to a slower tier for cost savings. 
 

NO MORE ISLANDS: CLUSTERING FOR INTENSIVE I/O

You can turn traditional non-clustered NAS into a seamless, scalable system with Avere OS on an FXT Edge cluster. Right-sized for your organization, clustering on the Edge eliminates NAS islands, enhances existing NAS by hiding common latency thorough a highly responsive tier, and provides highly available access to your data even in the presence of failures.
 

GLOBAL NAMESPACE

Global namespace hides the differences in heterogeneous environments making management simple and headache-free. Avere believes the choice in vendors should be yours and you shouldn’t be locked in. Avere’s global namespace keeps your options open and consolidates user access through a single mount point no matter what storage vendor and storage technology, cloud or NAS, you are using in the core.
 

ANALYTICS: IN THE KNOW... ALL THE TIME

Measure and monitor like never before. Operations/second? You got it. Throughput? Yep. Latency stats? You’ll have that too. 
  • Identifies “hot clients” and “hot files” for you
  • Easy to read “heat maps” for pinpointing specific behavior
  • Current and historical look at operations/second, throughput, and latency statistics
  • Drill-down on specific clients, storage systems, and operation types
  • Dashboard monitoring

 

"SNAP" to the Cloud with Cloud Snapshots

You've grown to love the feature of snapshots in your on-premises NAS. Why give them up with cloud storage? With Avere's Cloud Snapshots you can "snap" data to the cloud as part of your data recovery solution with a familiar NAS-style user interface.

With Cloud Snapshots, data is protected against disk, controller and entire site failures. It does so without typical disaster recovery complexities like requiring multiple complete copies of data, substantial amounts of additional storage capacity and expensive, complex mirroring software. 

Cloud Snapshots:

  • Integrate with FlashCloud™for a built-from-the-ground-up cloud experience
  • Are space-efficient
  • Support 1,024 snapshots per bucket
  • Can be automated or manually run
  • Provide point-in-time consistency across all objects in a bucket
  • And, do not require multiple NAS arrays
