Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA)

Pay as you Grow  Dedicated and Secured Storage


The Zadara Storage Cloud

Powered by a proprietary software, Virtual Private Storage Array™ (VPSA™), Zadara offers true “as-a-service” enterprise solutions which include comprehensive support for SAN (iSCSI block) and NAS (CIFS/NFS file) protocols alongside hybrid SSD and HDD tiering. With VPSA databases and applications access storage using native protocols, providing optimum reliability, availability, serviceability, and performance.

Everything you need to begin using Zadara Storage’s Virtual Private Storage Arrays and take advantage of its scale-out, multi-tenant architecture is delivered to your data center. The Zadara Storage Cloud hardware includes 40Gb switches, Storage Nodes (the cloud can be deployed with as few as two storage nodes and scale elastically to 100s of nodes), and cables. For customers requiring high performance for latency-sensitive applications, the Zadara Storage Cloud can include 40Gb iSER-capable NICs for customer’s iSCSI clients.  Zadara’s VPSA-based Cloud  provides a hardware storage solution for which customers pay based on usage. The high scalability and flexibility of VPSA allows uses to quickly and easily scale from terabytes to petabytes.  Zadara Storage delivers a pure OpEx solution at no capital costs to the client, making it a real “as-a-service solution” which includes storage management, maintenance and pro-active support for organizations. Additionally, Zadara refreshes older hardware  routinely while keeping data on-line and available so that customers will never have to migrate their data again.

 From Traditional SAN to Virtual Private Storage Arrays

Traditionally, enterprise storage arrays have been built using specialized disk trays and purpose-manufactured controllers. This architecture limits the speed and expandability of an array to the performance of the controllers, and forces all I/O from all the disks through the same controllers. With this design workload isolation is impossible, guaranteeing that one application will always impact the performance of another. Furthermore the traditional SAN architecture permanently limits the number of drives which can be managed by the controller.
