  • 磁盘系统与控制系统紧耦合 存储控制软件与其他软件运行于同一控制器 NAS 机头的配置决定了后端存储的配置 不同控制器不能实现真正完全的数据共享 存储数据只能通过一个控制器访问 控制器故障后,切换时间长
  • 磁盘系统与控制系统紧耦合 :1 、 存储控制软件与其他软件运行于同一控制器; 2 、 NAS 机头的配置决定了后端存储的配置 不同控制器不能实现真正完全的数据共享: 1 、 存储数据只能通过一个控制器访问; 2 、控制器故障后,切换时间长
  • 难以实现数据的分级管理需求 当非重要数据和重要数据一起保存时,所有数据与最重要数据的安全级别相同,而数据安全级别越高,相应的保护措施(如选择可靠性更高的 FC 磁盘、创建高冗余的 RAID 卷等)也就越严格,用于数据保护的成本也就越高,此时,对非重要数据来说是一种浪费 当不同重要性级别的数据存放在一起时,所有数据共享相同的硬盘资源,降低系统服务效率
  • 由于备份组网复杂,有时为备份需要开通某些权限,从而降低数据的安全性
  • 最新的产品规格
  • 后期动画制作:来自不同介质的数据流流向 N8000 设备 【 客户现在可以在需要时为大量占用带宽的应用程序添加光纤通道连接。 】
  • 采用 Active/Active 集群工作模式 集群的各个机头互为冗余, 任意机头宕机时自动 failover 和 failback ,不影响系统运行,不会导致数据丢失 集群的各个机头能并发地进行事务处理,可用率达到 100 %; 所有关键部件都采用冗余设计,并能在线更换; 数据保险箱 意外掉电时,可以保证 CACHE 数据可安全写入数据保险箱; 恢复供电后,可以把数据保险箱的数据恢复到 CACHE 中,保证 CACHE 数据不丢失
  • 性能灵活扩展 在线快速增加集群机头,使性能线性扩展,最多可扩展至 8 个机头,达 2120MB/s 各机头可提高硬件配置增加性能 存储容量扩展 每套存储阵列后端可在线增加磁盘数量,可扩展至 180T 可在线增加存储阵列数量,阵列数量无限制,存储容量从 TB 级扩展至 PB 级 灵活的主机端口配置,每机头可选择配置 2 到 8 个 GE 接口;
  • 后端可选阵列丰富
  • 动态分级存储( DST )
  • 由于备份组网复杂,有时为备份需要开通某些权限,从而降低数据的安全性
  • 可根据用户不同的要求和应用,按策略自动为数据卷创建基于增量的时间点标记,并可对相应时间点标记进行“回滚”来快速恢复数据, 特别适合解决软件程序导致的数据损坏、病毒破坏、意外删除文件及其它人为误操作所导致的数据丢失或错误。
  • 统一管理工具 ISM ,是基于 Java 开发的用户管理图形界面 , 使管理更加容易,提供了不中断业务、进行在线的可视化存储管理 借助 NeoStor 存储管理软件,管理员可以直观的完成对设备的基本配置操作和清晰的性能监控、故障管理等功能,还提供丰富的业务特性,包括磁盘管理、卷管理等 支持远程管理,帮助客户有效地配置、监控和调整 N8000 存储系统,提供全面且逻辑清晰的告警、性能统计和日志信息,支持邮件告警通知功能
  • 场景描述
  • 主要应用为增强企业或系统数据的安全性,为每个服务器分配网络硬盘,再定期对 N8000 里的数据进行数据备份, 如果是 windows 环境,加入 AD 域,如果是 Linux 、 Unix 环境,加入到 NIS 域,加入到 AD 域和 NIS 域用于权限控制 N8000 的高可靠性,高性能,高可扩展性很好的实现了集中存储和数据备份
  • 场景描述
