  16. Fault tolerance of enterprise class storage

    Slide 16 - Fault tolerance of enterprise class storage

    • Software Feature
    • Protects Against?
    • How is works?
    • Controller failover
    • Protection against the failure of a controller.
    • The dual controllers are active/passive. In the event the active controller fails the passive controller automatically takes over.
    • NVRAM mirrored across controllers via NTB.
    • Storage Spaces
    • Protection in the event of one or more drive failures.
    • Disk insert into and removal from pools.
    • Nondisruptive software upgrades (NDU)
    • Allows updates to be made to the operating system without taking downtime.
    • The software is downloaded and updated on each controller. One controller is up at all times to continue processing and serving data.
    • Redundant Power Supplies
    • Dual Controllers
    • Network Interfaces
  17. Increase IT agility to meet business priorities

    Slide 17 - Increase IT agility to meet business priorities

    • No need for incessant planning and worrying about running out of capacity for primary storage and compliance data

    • Consolidated management
    • No need to setup or maintain on-premises equipment for new or special projects, since enterprise data can be accessed in the cloud
    • On demand infrastructure
