Easy, Flexible Data Management and Migration
EASY MANAGEMENT OF HETEROGENEOUS HARDWARE
Managing heterogeneous environments is anything but simple without Avere’s global namespace. Although others claim to have global namespace, all others are single-vendor solutions only and don’t support 3rd-party vendors. Avere believes the choice in vendors should be yours and you shouldn’t be locked in. Avere’s global namespace consolidates user access through a single mount point no matter what NAS or cloud storage vendor is holding your data.
TRANSPARENT DATA MIGRATION
Adding and replacing storage controllers and disk drives as well as movement of data between tiers disrupt users and can even halt productivity all together. With Avere FlashMove on FXT Edge filers, data migrates transparently from one system or tier to another. Your users will never know that you’re up to something big in the data center.
Threats to your data seem to have no end. Protecting it from the inevitable or the improbable is necessary. RAID protection can help in disk failures, but threats to a geographic location needs FlashMirror software on an FXT cluster to write to secondary storage in a remote location or the cloud. Updates write to both the primary and secondary storage, restoring from each other if necessary without affecting normal operations.
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
