OSNexus has certified the Seagate® Exos® CORVAULT™ for use with its QuantaStor software-defined storage platform, enabling scale-up and scale-out cluster configurations deployed with two layers of erasure coding for enhanced data durability, and most recently, automation of storage set up and management in the QuantaStor platform.
BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --OSNexus, the leading developer of grid-scale software-defined storage, today announced storage automation capabilities in QuantaStor 6 with Seagate® Exos® CORVAULT™. The new one-click complete auto-configuration of CORVAULT systems enables ultra simple expansion of QuantaStor scale-up and scale-out clusters with Seagate CORVAULT systems.
OSNexus QuantaStor integrates with Seagate Exos CORVAULT enabling scale-up and scale-out cluster configurations deployed with two layers of erasure coding provided by the CORVAULT and a second layer provided by QuantaStor. QuantaStor also monitors CORVAULT systems to provide distributed management and alerting.
Seagate's Exos CORVAULT is a fully configured, self-healing, direct-attached storage array which combines Seagate's highest capacity enterprise disk drives with Seagate's ADAPT and Autonomous Drive Regeneration (ADR) data protection and self-healing technologies. The CORVAULT system presents logical disk groups instead of physical disks to the QuantaStor software and also implements hardware-based erasure coding data protection, which reduces the server CPU resources needed to run QuantaStor by 50% as compared with using JBODs.
QuantaStor uses the CORVAULT's built-in VelosCT™ ASIC-based ADAPT erasure coding to enable faster system performance and simplified maintenance with faster drive rebuilds within each CORVAULT storage array, eliminating east/west network disk rebuild traffic resulting in less backend system pressure. QuantaStor implements a second layer of erasure coding between CORVAULT systems, significantly increasing system data durability up to 14 9's.
"Integration and automation of the Seagate Exos CORVAULT systems provides a unique solution to scaling with two-layers of erasure-coding and this is key to enabling customers to deploy clusters in the 100PB-200PB and beyond as Seagate continues to increase per platter densities," said Steven Umbehocker, CEO of OSNexus. "With this release we've expanded our Seagate Exos CORVAULT integration by adding easy one-click auto-configuration via pre-set profiles which will greatly accelerate deployment times and provide greater consistency."
QuantaStor's management and auto-configuration of Seagate CORVAULT units covers the entire line from the 4U106 based Corvault to the new 5U84 Corvault that fits within standard rack depth.
