Utilising the DataCore SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor the Boston Igloo 1816 DC HA iSCSI SAN cluster is designed from the ground up to meet the high performance and availability needs of the modern enterprise.
The active / active failover configuration synchronously mirrors data using a pair of dedicated 10GbE links between two Igloo 1816 DC appliances. Utilising these links, each appliance could be located in physically separate racks, rooms or even different datacentres. This replication helps guarantee data availability and business continuity in the event of planned or unplanned downtime of either appliance, yet still delivers the performance and capacity a modern enterprise requires at a reasonable price tag.
High speed caching and auto tiering features utilise both DRAM and SSD respectively to accelerate SAN performance, whilst still utilising relatively inexpensive high capacity drives for mass storage. This simple yet effective approach comfortably delivers thousands of IOPS satisfying the most demanding applications including cloud computing, virtualisation and VDI.
Dual 10GbE interfaces on each appliance guarantee significant bandwidth for host connectivity, allowing applications to move large data sets quickly and effectively. Optional 8Gbit fibre channel connectivity is also available giving even more flexibility and deployment options.
Certified for Hyper-V & VMware vSphere, DataCore™ SANsymphony™-V offers administrators an easy to deploy yet dependable solution for virtual machine storage. An additional plug in for VMware vCenter even enables manipulation of the services of the Igloo 1816 DC series without even leaving the familiar vCenter console.
With 16TB of inclusive capacity and options to pay as you grow to more than 100TB, you can rest assured that the Igloo 1816 DC series HA cluster is ready to expand with your businesses data requirements.
Optional asynchronous replication offers further peace of mind for mission critical applications, allowing you to easily keep a replica copy offsite as part of a disaster recovery plan.
