LeftHand Networks SAN/iQ software provides Product Details
SAN/iQ software provides advanced storage clustering advanced storage clustering capabilities, consolidating individual physical storage nodes into virtual pools of storage. The clustered SAN is managed from a single management interface, regardless of the mix of platforms, age, software revision or location on the network.
With SAN/iQ, you can migrate volumes online between different storage clusters based on your business requirements. As your SAN grows, you can move volumes from different storage pools without any downtime or interruption to application server access to the data on the volumes. SAN/iQ automatically migrates the data as a background operation without any impact to the application server access to the data.
SAN/iQ software stripes and mirrors multiple copies of your data across a cluster of storage nodes using patented SAN/iQ Network RAID, eliminating any single point of failure. You'll have continuous data availability in the event of a network, disk, controller, or entire storage node failure. When new storage nodes are added to the cluster, Network RAID automatically re-stripes all the data within the cluster, balancing the data load on each storage node for optimal performance and reliability.
SAN/iQ Snapshot creates instant point-in-time copies of your data on a volume-by-volume basis. Create snapshots a variety of ways: manually ad-hoc, on a scheduled or scripted basis, or via Microsoft VSS. You can then access these point-in-time copies to recover individual file-level data or to rollback entire volumes. Thin Provisioning makes SAN/iQ Snapshot extremely space-efficient, only consuming storage on the SAN for the data written for the snapshot. With Thin Provisioning 2.0, SAN/iQ Snapshots are typically 97% utilized, or better.
Thin provisioning is a powerful and valuable form of storage virtualization, and it has been a SAN/iQ feature from the beginning. Unlike traditional provisioning methods, thin provisioning lets you create large virtual storage volumes that only consume the capacity used by actual data, leaving no stranded storage capacity. Capacity not required for storage remains available for all other applications to use.
SAN/iQ Remote Copy combines the power of SAN/iQ Snapshot with asynchronous data replication between your volumes. Like snapshots, remote copies can be created manually ad-hoc, scheduled or scripted. Simply establish a replication policy between a primary volume and its remote volume partner and create a baseline copy. For future copies, only the changes over time are synced to the remote volume, greatly speeding up data transfer over your network or WAN. In the event that you need to failover to the data in a remote volume, the Remote Copy Recovery Wizard guides you through the failover process as well as the failback process once the original volume is back online.
As disk capacities continue to increase, the probability of read errors during a disk rebuild goes up as well. SAN/iQ Network RAID includes self-healing capabilities that improve both the reliability and performance of your SAN. The software scrubs every data block on the storage server at least once per month to reduce the risk of persistent read errors. During these scheduled scrubs, if a data block cannot be read, Network RAID retrieves a copy from the SAN and repairs the data block on the storage server.
Network RAID's proactive defragmentation algorithm runs as a background task. This self-healing feature ensures that both the layout of the existing data and new data storage allocations are perpetually optimized for your SAN.
