Madison Cloud is proud to have teamed with StorONE as the software-defined storage partner for their On-Premises and Private MultiCloud Storage.
StorONE's mission is to make Storage Heroes by providing IT professionals with a solution that meets all the objectives of software-defined storage, plus adds data protection and resiliency that is 10X better than any other technology on the market. At the same time, it increases storage system performance 10X over industry standard. The result is StorONE's Enterprise Storage Platform.
StorONE founders are proven, successful entrepreneurs who boast over 50 patent awards. Top-tier industry luminaries and strategic investors back the company. The S1 Storage Platform changes the perception of data center storage from an IT cost center to a resource that provides organizations with a critical competitive advantage.
How can a storage vendor reduce the cost of storage? After all, most storage vendors are software developers. While hardware does matter, all storage vendors have access to the same servers, interface cards and storage media. Most storage vendors lower the cost of their solutions by lowering the amount of profit they make on the sale of their software or system. They can only lower their costs so much before risking their own business viability, which places their customers at risk. There is another way! Total Resource Utilization (TRU) by StorONE
A flash drive rated at 500K IOPS gets 475K IOPS with StorONE's S1 Enterprise Storage Platform. Our competitors typically get less than 50K IOPS per drive. That means a StorONE S1 system with as few as four drives can easily deliver over 1 million IOPS while still providing enterprise features like protection from media failure, snapshots and replication. We also require less from the storage server. We can deliver these performance numbers with modest server requirements. Our competitors require their customers to buy a full shelf of twelve or twenty-four drives! And, they require high-end servers to deliver even this low per drive performance.
Most storage vendors don't want you to utilize the full capacity of each drive you buy. In many cases as they cross the 50% capacity mark, it impacts performance of the system or volume. With StorONE S1 you can fill the drives to almost full capacity without impacting performance. Our customers find they need half as many drives as our competitors to meet the organization's capacity AND performance demands.
Most storage vendors focus their efforts on solving one data center use case. Some provide fast block storage, others provide scalable file storage and still others provide protection or archive storage. Today's data center often has seven or more storage systems from three or more storage vendors. StorONE's S1 is an Enterprise Storage Platform, which means that it can address multiple data center use cases like high performance block storage for databases, hybrid storage for virtual environments, high-performance or high-capacity NAS/Object file storage, high-capacity protection storage and cloud-native storage.
StorONE's S1 Enterprise Storage Platform goes beyond basic data rollback functionality to provide invincible data protection to help organizations not only recover quickly but also retain data indefinitely, without impacting performance.
S1:vRAID advances the standard RAID technology found in most primary storage systems by using erasure coding. It is a protection method standard in object storage systems but not in high-performance storage systems. Like other components of S1, the team at StorONE redeveloped erasure coding from the ground up for use in modern storage infrastructures. We've developed S1:vRAID to deliver all the benefits of erasure coding without the performance penalty.
With S1:vRAID organizations can set their protection level per volume or workload. IT can set mission-critical workloads to survive three or more drive failures but set their less critical workloads to survive only two or even one drive failure. The settings are all customizable per volume and don’t impact system performance.
S1:HA is StorONE's High Availability feature creates a cluster between two S1 servers so that if one fails, data is still accessible. Each server (physical or virtual) is active, so the performance load is automatically split between the two systems. If one S1 server goes down, then the surviving server automatically takes over the other server's LUNs until the failed server is repaired or replaced.
S1:Snap is StorONE’s snapshot feature that gives S1 the ability to take an unlimited number of snapshots per volume and retain those snapshots indefinitely. The quantity, age, and nesting level of the snapshots do not impact performance. Snapshots can be set to read-only, protecting them from ransomware, immutable protecting them from rogue users or to read/write to enable data reuse.
S1:Sync is StorONE’s replication feature that enables an organization to survive a site failure with no data loss or application interruption. S1:Sync replicates data between multiple S1 systems, either synchronously or asynchronously.
S1:DirectWrite is StorONE's cacheless architecture – No NVDIM, MRAM, NVRAM. It's performance numbers are direct to media, and lowers overall storage server cost while increasing data integrity and simplifying HA design.
All vendors claim high performance. Not only can StorONE's S1 Enterprise Storage Platform deliver high-performance, it does so with the highest possible levels of efficiency.
Most storage systems on the market today can only deliver ~20% of the rated performance of each individual drive within the system. StorONE's platform approach provides 90% of the raw drive performance. How? We abandon the status quo and create new storage algorithms for all core storage functions.
Thanks to our algorithms, we deliver this high performance while requiring LESS CPU power and LESS system memory than our competition.
-Deliver more performance than your users need, with less compute, memory and drives.
-Dramatically lower the cost of high-performance storage without deduplication and compression.
-Future Proof Your storage. Extract maximum performance from next-generation hardware.
