Optimized for high performance storage applications, Boston's new range of Igloo NX Series products offer a broad range of connectivity and storage options with high IO performance and capacities being powered by NexentaStor™.
The Igloo NXStor 2U AiO supports 24 x 2.5" Hot-swap SAS HDDs of up to 1TB each in tandem with 3 or more high performance solid state hard disks for IO acceleration. Two high performance STEC 50GB SLC SSD cache drives are used in mirror as an accelerated write cache for the standard spinning disk array; Additionally the final STEC 200GB MLC SSD drive is used to compliment the system RAM as an adaptive replacement (read) cache. The result of these extra caching levels is an increase in performance of high magnitude - in many cases up to 10x better than standard storage arrays.
Based on Nexenta's NexentaStor™ the Igloo NXStor Ai1 leverages the revolutionary ZFS file system. This allows previously exotic and proprietary storage features typically offered as additional upgrades by other vendors to be included as standard at no cost across the Igloo NXStor range including, multi-parity RAID, data de-duplication, unlimited snapshots, compression, replication, copy-on-write data resilience, online volume expansion and many more. Scalability is second to none with optional additional cascading units containing further spinning disks for greater capacity or extra solid state disks for increased cache.
NexentaStor™ is the leading hardware independent OpenStorage solution based on its adoption by thousands of enterprises to date. With features such as 128 bit addressing, virtually unlimited storage file sizes, virtually unlimited numbers of clones, and support for multiple concurrent server virtualization vendors, NexentaStor™ is both Cloud and Virtualizaton ready. Nexenta has also developed the VM Data Center module, which integrates tightly with NexentaStor, VMware, and Citrix. The VM Data Center module allows hosting and cloud providers to easily see and manage their virtual environments. For maximum efficiency, storage policies can be set directly from NexentaStor for particular virtual machines.
