Key Selling Points
Growth or Scalability: Scale from 2 to 16 nodes and achieve a linear increase in file serving throughput performance and client support. Purchase the file serving throughput that you need today with the ability to easily add performance and throughput as your business needs grow.
High Availability: With a fully symmetrical cluster architecture, cluster integrity can be maintained in the event of a single or multiple node failure. Failover from one node to another happens quickly and the client is unaware that a failure has occurred as file serving is failed over to all remaining nodes. There is no single point of failure
Performance: Each DL380 G5 based node provides approximately 170MB/second sequential write performance. The architecture is optimized for both read and write performance.
Data Integrity: Cache coherency and data integrity is maintained in the event of a single or multiple node failure. Clients are failed over transparently and uniformly distributed across the cluster to ensure optimal load balancing and uninterrupted file serving.
Maintainability: When you want to upgrade hardware, software or firmware, you have the ability to temporarily remove a node from the cluster. Cluster integrity is maintained as file serving requests are failed over to the remaining nodes. After the upgrade is completed simply re-insert the node back into the cluster.
Industry standard: The HP ProLiant DL server is the world's best selling server with enterprise class uptime and management features. Both Linux and Windows are supported.
Lowest cost: Rather than purchasing a file serving solution based upon anticipated needs, purchase additional nodes when your file serving needs grow. By building the solution on HP ProLiant servers and an industry standard OS (either Linux or Windows) you can ensure a low initial cost and lower total cost of ownership overall.
Ease of management: Manage a single cluster rather than individual servers. The cluster can be monitored from any node or from any system running Windows or Linux. In addition to cluster management, storage management and fabric management can also be done from the cluster console.
Storage Virtualization across heterogeneous Arrays: Provides configurable striping to meet workload and performance demands. Online volume growth and aggregation across multiple arrays allows full use of storage infrastructure.
Support: Installation and startup services ensure that the hardware and software are quickly integrated into the environment. Software support, including OS support is provided for one year and can be renewed. Upgraded hardware support is provided for 1 year 24 x 7.
