Acronis Storage eliminates limitations of hardware storage systems by shifting the management of traditional storage challenges around reliability and data access to the software layer. Acronis accelerates cloud storage offering time to market for Service Providers managing Backup & Archive volumes ranging from 50TB up to multiple Petabytes.
Features & Benefits
Software Defined Storage
Enables hardware independent storage. Provides granular scalability, usage of commodity, cost-efficient hardware and easy to manage infrastructure.
Innovative storage software redundancy while saving 60%+ hardware overhead compared to traditional RAID. Provides better than RAID reliability.
Facilitates easy to manage storage environments. Requires 10x less effort for deployment, scaling and controlling. Minimizes staff overhead.
Provides built-in tools for optimization of storage performance and storage efficiency.
Works with most other solution for backup, archiving, file sharing and data recovery.
Optimized and fully integrated with the Acronis Backup & Recovery family of solutions.
Self-Healing Data Processes
Acronis Storage holds built-in self-healing processes to discover and repair data inconsistencies and errors while minimizing staff overhead.
Seamless upgrading of performance and capacity without data migration or system downtime.
Scale-up, Scale-out, Scale-down
Smooth scaling from dozens of terabytes to multiple petabytes of data capacity using deployment templates. Nodes can easily be repurposed when not used.
Potential Use Cases
Organizing and managing data compliance for Medical, Financial, Telecom and other Records Databases.
Essential part of Cloud Infrastructure for providing managed and self-service backup, archiving and storage as a service for partners and customers.
Backup & Archiving
Storing Backups, Financial Data & Transaction Archives, Medical Records, Log Files for Telco Operators, Science Databases and Disaster Recovery Archives.
Controlling growing libraries of digital images, videos and recordings. Achieve smooth scalability and easy performance-optimization not possible with traditional storage hardware.
Client Access Services
Client access services (NFS) – run on the client side to provide access to data. Some client applications may run directly on storage nodes.
Virtual Front-end servers are responsible for translating client read-write operations to storage nodes as directed by metadata nodes.
Deployment automation system provides easy automated initial deployment and further scaling of the storage cluster.
Virtual Metadata nodes are responsible for data reliability and availability, including load balancing nodes, integrity checks and restoring data.
Monitoring and management services run on all nodes to ensure storage will automatically self-heal, proactively preventing hardware failures and reducing IT maintenance overheads.
Virtual Storage Nodes are responsible for storing actual data and maintaining its integrity.
