StoneFly proudly offers Cloud Drive in Microsoft Azure with which users can get an iSCSI Storage or a scale Out NAS storage on Fly. Users, who need high end performance oriented data access and who are interested in having a hybrid cloud environment, can dramatically increase the performance of StoneFly Cloud Drives by deploying a StoneFly Cloud Storage Acceleration Gateway with FlashCache on their local network.
The StoneFly Gateway appliance is configured to cache and data transfer takes place between the user’s local systems and the StoneFly Cloud Drive on Azure.
Data is quickly written to and cached (temporarily stored) on lightning-fast solid state disk drives within the StoneFly Gateway prior to being securely transmitted to user’s remote iSCSI drives in the cloud. By expediting the completion of writes, workloads on local workstations and servers are significantly reduced.
StoneFly Gateway not only caches data before it is sent to the cloud, it can also caches hot data that is used frequently. This greatly improves read performance and speeds up access to data as the same files do not have to be repeatedly downloaded from the cloud to a user’s local systems, thereby reducing overall demand on bandwidth.
