Support multiple operating systems within a single system.
Traditional IT infrastructure can be costly, inefficient, and a drain on resources. Virtualization offers a flexible solution to managing existing storage devices, consolidating data into a central location. This greatly simplifies archiving, data backup, and recovery processes by reducing duplicated data and maximizing storage space on servers.
With the wide adoption of virtualization, the need for high performance, scalable storage is more essential than ever. Ciphertex network-attached storage servers offer top-notch system architecture matched with 10 GbE networking performance designed to meet the needs of demanding server virtualization, such as VMware®, Citrix®, and Windows® Hyper-V. 10 GbE network speeds greatly increase the agility of data transmission in a virtualized environment intensifying NFS and iSCSI connection performance.
Compared with the high cost of a Fibre Channel SAN, Ciphertex network-attached storage servers are affordable systems that can be deployed as a storage center for virtualized and clustered server environments, such as VMware and Microsoft Windows Failover Cluster. Our NAS servers provide a cost-efficient iSCSI solution to expand storage capacity. With the built-in iSCSI initiator, they can also connect to other iSCSI targets over the network and turn them into virtual disk drives (VDD).
Ciphertex NAS servers support multiple LUNs (Logical Unit Numbers) and iSCSI targets. LUNs can be flexibly mapped to, unmapped from, and switched among different iSCSI targets. Designed with CHAP authentication and LUN masking through the advanced ACL (Access Control List), our NAS servers can block unauthorized access from initiators ensuring secure deployment. Utilize Ciphertex’s scalable virtualization solutions to meet your growing storage demands.
