1 Copyright © 2012 DataCore Software Corp. – All Rights Reserved. Practical High Availability NAS Cost-effective, non-stop disk access for clustered file shares

2 Copyright © 2012 DataCore Software Corp. – All Rights Reserved. Problem: Cost to achieve necessary redundancy & speed can be prohibitive Alternative: Extend DataCore storage virtualization servers into high-availability (HA) NAS role Couple SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor features with Windows Server 2008 R2 NFS/SMB file sharing & clustering capabilities in Enterprise Edition No additional software required Combine into unified HA storage solution (SAN/NAS) Availability & performance of file shares has become mission critical 2

Compelling value FEATURE Clustered file shares Synchronous mirroring w/ automatic non-disruptive failover Redundant NAS servers up to 100 km apart Thin provisioning Cache acceleration Remote replication BENEFIT Business continuity & HA Avoid storage-related downtime Minimize impact of equipment & facility problems Maximize space utilization Faster performance Extend protection for disaster avoidance & recovery
