Metastor Homogenized Storage takes the concept of “Software-Defined Storage” (SDS) to a whole new level.
The combination of our bare metal and ingenious software offers a degree of flexibility that was never before possible. Metastor is able to homogenize disparate topologies and technologies into a single, hyper-converged solution that provides users the ability to use literally every current storage technology simultaneously. Metastor storage solutions offer 16-32Gb/s FC SAN, 10GbE, 40GbE and 100GbE NAS and iSCSI SAN topologies, while incorporating every access protocol known to man — Block I/O, File I/O, CIFS, NFS, FTP, AppleTalk, ZFS, SMB, Object Store, and the list goes on.
Concurrently. All with the same disk pools.
Each storage pool can be independently assigned to any type of storage and integrated controller. With the same physical disks you can assign one pool for Block FC SAN storage, another for iSCSI, another for NFS NAS, another for SMB, some with RAM and SSD caching, others exclusively disk-based, some volumes as object stores, others as CIFS, and all from a simple management interface that can have you up and running on newly-created volumes in a matter of minutes. True high-availability is built-in for industry standard H/A support right out of the box. At Metastor, we don’t charge extra for features you need, whether today or well into the future.
