StoneFly, INC., a subsidiary of Dynamic Network Factory has unveiled StoneFly TSO Twin Scale Out NAS storage appliance on a commercial note. The storage appliance is capable of delivering unprecedented performance, redundancy and scalability and is ideal to be used as an ultra fast primary storage for visual effects and high IO intensive media production applications requiring post-production transcodes, high concurrent sequential throughputs and streaming media.
StoneFly™ TSO Series storage appliances are designed as powerful storage solution that can scale out storage capacity while scaling up performance with the help of Mirrored twin scale out NAS nodes. Each node can be scaled up to 36 drives and 144 terabytes of storage capacity, with a flexibility of scaling out to multiple nodes on demand. This storage solution is perfect for managing large quantities of unstructured data within global namespace and a single file system.
StoneFly Twin Scale Out NAS storage is designed for markets that require high bandwidth throughput or fast parallel throughput for very large file transfer and storage.
“TSO is the most scalable and resilient NAS in the market, utilizing the latest technology of no Metadata and is the best choice to use in environments dealing with big data, cloud and media related data,” said Mo Tahmasebi, CEO and President of StoneFly. He added that the Scale Out NAS of StoneFly can be scaled out across multiple nodes using no metadata and a single namespace. New nodes can be added in proportion to bandwidth and all the multiple nodes can be used with just a single user interface. The other highlight of Twin Scale out is that its installation, management and scaling is simple to achieve and is possible for any storage volume.
StoneFly TSO fits into the environments where content creation, transformation, production and archive of unstructured data like documents, presentations, pictures, music and video files are involved.
Moreover, this storage appliance is highly scalable and as a result server nodes, CPU horsepower and storage capacity can be added as per the requirement of the user. Thus, this helps in offering predictable performance and allows users to pay as per use.
StoneFly™ TSO NAS simplifies the storage of media applications and is ideal platform for storage consolidation, as it can be used as a shared resource implementing higher utilization.
Capacity can be quickly provisioned, shared and managed with fewer resources. So, it leverages all of its resources, maximizes utilization, integrates nearline SAS, enterprise SAS and SSD tiering within the storage nodes.
StoneFly TSO NAS Storage can be used as an enterprise wide file sharing resource with a single access point across data storage locations.
It can be used as nearline storage for infrequently accessed data that needs to be online.
Industry verticals dealing with rich media (audio and video) can use this appliance as a content distribution source enriched with petabyte scale storage and high read performance.
Applications involving weather prediction and oil & gas exploration can also make use of this appliance.
StoneFly Twin Scale out TSO NAS can be used as a centralized storage-as-a-service for all kinds of enterprise applications.
It can also act as a backup and archive target for on-site and off-site data protection and disaster recovery service.
