HyperDrive Storage

SoftIron’s HyperDrive Storage Router is a highly intelligent services gateway that enables enterprise-wide adoption of Ceph by consolidating user shares, virtualization and any other storage technologies onto one scalable, high-performance platform.

While Ceph is undoubtedly the leading open-source, software-defined storage software on the market, it has traditionally challenged organizations due to its’ inability to support other files shares and protocols. SoftIron built Storage Router to remove this obstacle and allow everyone to leverage the power of Ceph, no matter who the end user is.

The result is a highly intelligent platform that not only enables enterprise-wide adoption of Ceph, but it can also accommodate different services modules over time as features or requirements grow. Coupled with HyperDrive Storage Manager, SoftIron’s unified management tool for Ceph, the complexities of storage management are radically simplified like never before.

With SoftIron’s Storage Router you can easily and confidently:

  • Use Ceph as your unified enterprise storage solution
  • Consolidate user shares, virtualization, and other storage needs into one scalable and high performance platform
  • Add support for Vmware vSphere and Microsoft HyperV by extending Ceph with the addition of iSCSI for block storage and NFS for Virtual Machine file storage
  • Add support for desktop clients and users by extending Ceph with the addition of support for Windows (SMB/CIFS) and Linux (NFS) file shares

HyperDrive Storage Router is the ideal solution for storage administrators looking to consolidate and simplify storage systems management of legacy protocols and prepare for newer storage access methods like object, persistent block devices for containers, and parallel file systems.

Storage Router provides the best solution for organizations that need to support high throughput storage transactions using S3 or legacy protocols such as iSCSI, NFS, and SMB – or for teams that use Windows and Mac OS computers to collaboratively edit, process, or share large files at high speed.

Clusters can combine Router appliances with other HyperDrive Storage appliances to deliver multiple tiered or differentiated storage service levels, managed as a single cluster from the same easy to use Storage Manager interface.
