    Overview
    The following presentation provides a functional overview on:
    How Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V together with CloudArray work seamlessly to create a file system/NAS system that stores or replicates data to cloud storage for virtual and physical server environments
    The solution enables high data availability file access with no single point of failure to include Cloud storage providers – supports DR initiatives
    Seamless integration with Windows CIFS environments & Active Directory
    A scalable, economical and reliable storage tier for file storage services

    CloudArray operates as a virtual or physical appliance:
    • Presents iSCSI volumes to Windows Server
    • 21. Volumes are block-based residing on one or many Cloud storage providers
    • 22. Local cache allows fast access to data
    • 23. All data optionally encrypted at rest with 256-bit encryption
    • 24. Space-efficient snapshots in the cloud enable off-site point-in-time recovery and retention policies

    As data is written to V1, based on policy the data stored on V1 can be stored locally and replicated asynchronously to separate public Cloud providers. V1 can also be cached and stored directly on separate storage Cloud providers.
    • Data is compressed and/or encrypted
    • 27. Snapshots in the cloud enable rapid restores
