  20. 20. TwinStrata.com<br />8<br />CloudArray operates as a virtual or physical appliance: <br /><ul><li> Presents iSCSI volumes to Windows Server
  21. 21. Volumes are block-based residing on one or many Cloud storage providers
  22. 22. Local cache allows fast access to data
  23. 23. All data optionally encrypted at rest with 256-bit encryption
  24. 24. Space-efficient snapshots in the cloud enable off-site point-in-time recovery and retention policies </li></ul>Apps, NFS, CIFS Clients<br />NTFS direct application access or CIFS and NFS based file serving <br />Windows <br />Server 2008<br />Hyper-V<br />. . .<br />Windows Server 2008Node<br />Cloud Storage Providers<br />CloudArray Virtual Appliance<br />For Hyper-V<br />SAN<br />
