In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Coraid Provides New File Storage Building Block for Enterprise and Cloud
ZX4000 file storage appliance combines flash performance, multi-petabyte scale and distributed resilience

Coraid on Tuesday announced the general availability of its latest and fastest file storage appliance - the Coraid ZX4000. "Public cloud scalability, economics and resilience models are setting a new agenda for IT," said Coraid CEO Kevin Brown. The ZX4000 delivers flash-enhanced performance to handle large-scale mixed workloads in both enterprise and cloud deployments. The unique architecture of the ZX solution allows customers to create a potentially limitless pool of elastic, shared, block storage and to scale file storage performance by simply adding more ZX appliances.

Brown noted, "By combining enterprise-class storage features with a scale-out architecture, the ZX4000 provides an unmatched storage building block for cloud deployments."

The new ZX4000 can be deployed in a resilient architecture that offers protection against up to three shelf or drive failures while retaining high storage efficiencies of around 80 percent. This enterprise-class storage solution is available at a cost comparable to consumer-grade public cloud services and at a fraction of the cost of legacy NAS storage.

Many of Coraid's enterprise and service provider customers are experiencing rapid data growth and highly variable workloads in a shared storage environment. They collaborated with Coraid to design an appliance that can be configured to handle a dynamic mix of workloads, capacities and throughput in multitenant use cases.

Since its introduction in 2012, the ZX product line has been deployed by customers in a wide variety of applications including backup, public and private clouds, and media. The Coraid ZX is a modern, feature-rich, file storage appliance based on the Zettabyte File System (ZFS) and designed to work with Coraid EtherDrive SRX block storage. Coraid ZX leverages the open storage architecture of Coraid EtherDrive to bring together two best-of-breed systems -- a high-performance enterprise-class file system and Ethernet block storage -- to offer unprecedented power and flexibility.

Traditional NAS systems typically utilize multi-copy replication with complex mirroring to protect against three component failures. In contrast, the ZX's highly resilient, cloud-compatible architecture uses RAIN and RAIDZ-3 options to protect against the failure of three entire shelves or drives while maintaining high storage efficiency of around 80 percent. Furthermore, rapid RAID rebuild capabilities ensure that drive failures do not incur prolonged system performance degradation.

Drives behind a legacy NAS controller can be used only by controllers in a single string, creating an architecture with storage silos. Using Coraid EtherDrive scale-out block storage, customers can create a shared storage pool that is potentially limitless in size. As more capacity or performance is needed, customers can add more SRX or ZX appliances and reallocate storage on the fly without hardware reconfiguration. Coraid's Ethernet backbone allows users to deploy new capacity anywhere on the Ethernet network, whether in a different rack, different building or different city -- overcoming the distance limitations of legacy architectures. These options enable the construction of highly tuned cloud storage solutions based on the ZX family.

The ZX4000 is available immediately from Coraid and from authorized resellers. More information can be found at www.coraid.com/products.

Great article on the ZX4000. I’m a big supporter of Coraid’s storage management. I actually can’t wait to see their booth (805) @ VMworld in San Francisco.
