The scale and demands of unstructured data continue to grow at a relentless rate, making the need for optimized file-based data storage, and its simplified management, more crucial than ever.
OneFS writable snapshots help customers maximize the long-term value of their critical business data and drive down storage management cost and complexity. This simple, scalable solution offers fast, space-efficient, consistent copies of large datasets on Dell PowerScale NAS storage.
This paper presents information for managing writable snapshots in a Dell PowerScale cluster. This paper does not intend to provide a comprehensive background to the OneFS architecture.
