Metro node virtualizes the data that is on storage arrays to create dynamic, distributed, and highly available data centers.
Metro node addresses these two primary IT needs:
- Mobility: Metro node moves applications and data between different storage installations:
- Within the same data center or across a campus (metro node Local)
- Within a geographical region (metro node Metro)
- Availability: Metro node creates high-availability storage infrastructure across these same varied geographies with outstanding resiliency.
The metro node product family includes:
- Metro node Local
