Untangle your Datacenter with 10GbE

August 25, 2011

Among the most important recent trends in Storage Networking is the widespread migration to 10GbE. With 10 times the bandwidth of industry-standard Gigabit Ethernet, 10GbE connectivity offers fast data transfers, reduced latency and increased SAN availability. Additionally, 10GbE’s expansive bandwidth also enables multi-Gigabit links with a single cable, eliminating the complexity of port bonding and reducing the amount of hardware needed to achieve multi-gigabit connectivity.

For more information about how to accelerate your SAN while reducing cable clutter, check out this webinar.


Webinar: “Optimizing 10GbE Connectivity for IP SANs”

June 3, 2010

Please join us on Wednesday, June 9, 2010 at 10:00am PST (1:00pm EST) as we team up with a hardware networking solutions provider to discover basic 10GbE topology and capabilities that will increase your 10GbE IP SAN’s performance.

In this webinar we will cover:

• Latency improvements of 10GbE over 1GbE
Full Duplex vs. Half Duplex
Jumbo Frame Enhancements
• Latency differences of different PHY’s (physical connections)

Don’t miss this chance to learn from experts in the Storage and Network Switch experts this Wednesday.

NavigateStorage Discusses the Voyager IP SAN

December 17, 2009

Here’s what storage expert Jim Addlesberger  had to say about the Voyager IP SAN in his recent blog post:

In direct competition with Equallogic the Voyager IP SANs are designed to offer active/active controllers, improved redundancy, high-availability and fast performance – at a lower price point. Using high-performance storage interconnects, the Voyager product family is designed for enterprise environments looking for a versatile SAN for primary and secondary storage applications.

With support for SAS, SATA, and SSD drives for online transaction processing, database, email, disk based archives, disk to disk backup, virtual servers and other core applications. The cornerstone of the Voyager is their storage virtualization engine, which offers quad-core processing power, dedicated iSCSI Cache, and our StoneFusion storage management operating system.

Don’t believe us, read what Reuters had to say in March of 2009. And at 10Gb speeds the Voyager is a screamer.

Speaking of 10GB you should let us tell you about H3C a division of 3COM. Combining the Voyager and H3C’s 10GB switches gives you a very economical, performing and secure solution.

The Voyager not only supports 10GB but also Solid State drives as well.

Allow us to arrange an informative conference call to tell you more.

New RAIDML Offers Extreme Protection

November 23, 2009

We just introduced RAIDML™, a new multi-level (ML) approach that provides the highest levels of data protection for mission-critical files and applications.  RAIDML is now an integrated part of StoneFly’s Voyager HA IP SAN, which offers the ability to create No Single Point of Failure (NSPOF) volumes as well as RAID 5 or 6 protected volumes.  Both NSPOF and traditional RAID sets with comprehensive auto fail-over and fail-back capabilities are protected.  The creation of RAIDML saves costs and reduces the need for doubling drives to meet NSPOF requirements.  Use our  RAID calculator to help choose the RAID level that’s right for you. To read more about our new RAIDML features, check out the news release.

StoneFusion 6.3 Released

November 11, 2009

We just unveiled StoneFusion 6.3, a virtualization-focused upgrade to our intelligent network storage platform. The StoneFusion OS is integrated into all StoneFly IP SANs, and offers block-level provisioning and centralized storage management, control and monitoring of logical storage volumes.

Here are some of the key updates:

  • Compatibility with StoneFly’s new Storage Concentrator Virtual Machine (SCVM™), which provides comprehensive disaster recovery capabilities and enhanced support for leading virtual machine guest operating systems (OS)
  • Improved system management with Quick Sync™ and Pass-thru Copy features
  • Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) support for all IP SANs

Interested in a demo of StoneFly’s IP SANs utilizing the StoneFusion OS? Sign up for our Wednesday webinar. For more information on the update, check out the news release.
