PowerScale hybrid storage is highly flexible and strikes the balance between large capacity and high-performance storage to provide support for a broad range of enterprise file workloads.
It uses intelligent software to scale data across a large number of hardware units, enabling explosive growth in performance and capacity. The OneFS operating system, the revolutionary storage architecture offers a single clustered file system.
OneFS provides value by incorporating parallelism at a deep level in the operating system. Virtually, the system is distributed across multiple hardware units. This parallelism allows OneFS to scale in every dimension as the infrastructure is expanded. By providing multiple redundancy levels, the system has no single point of failure. As a result, it can grow to a multi-petabyte scale while providing greater reliability than traditional systems.
OneFS runs on PowerScale scale-NAS hardware, ensuring that PowerScale benefits from the ever-improving cost and efficiency curves of hardware. It allows you to add hardware to or remove hardware from the cluster at any time. The data is protected from hardware changes. This feature alleviates the cost and burden of data migrations and hardware refreshes.
