DATA STORAGE SYSTEMS
Data Storage Systems allow multiple drives to be combined into shared-storage. There are two main categories of Data Storage Systems:
DAS, SINGLE-SYSTEM DIRECT-ACCESS STORAGE (EXTERNAL HARD-DRIVES, RAID RANGER, RANGER SAS, THUNDERBOLT)
Single-system DAS products allow drives to connect to a single computer via USB, eSATA, SAS, or Thunderbolt connection. Our external drives and portable Ranger RAID systems (excluding Thunderbolt and Ranger SAS) come with hardware AES 256-bit Encryption via USB Encryption tokens.
NAS, NETWORK-ATTACHED STORAGE (INCLUDES RAID NAS, RACKMOUNT SERVERS).
NAS systems allow multiple computers access to the same shared-storage over an Ethernet or wireless network connection by attaching the NAS to a router via the standard RJ-45 Ethernet connection (1 Gb/e, 10Gb/e).
Since multiple users from multiple computers can access the stored data at once, NAS servers provide a simple and relatively inexpensive way to add more storage to your network. And easy deployment with multiple file systems makes NAS servers a popular storage solution for businesses of all sizes. Additionally, are NAS servers employ 10 Gbe, for high link speed with a low latency. 10 Gbe brings faster performance, simplified data transport, and unified workflows.
NVME - SSD DRIVES OVER PCIE BUS
Our rackmount server are available with NVMe technology, which removes the legacy bottleneck of SATA and SAS drive protocols. NVMe connects the SSD directly to the server's bus allowing for exceptionally high IOPs and many times the data throughput of legacy technologies.
DATA BACKUP PROTOCOL ESSENTIALS
- Delegate well-defined roles and responsibilities to ensure accountability
- Train back-up operators
- Establish offsite and onsite storage locations
- Create detailed documentation for orderly and efficient data backup and restoration.
- Test restoration of backup data regularly
- Disaster recovery and contingency planning
Disk failures are an unfortunate reality. In addition to buying high-performance enterprise class drives, you can initiate Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) protection for your sensitive data to avoid data loss. RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a logical unit. Data is distributed across the drives in one of several ways called "RAID levels", depending on the level of redundancy and performance required. All Ciphertex multi-drive units come preformatted to a RAID set up of your choice.
- RAID 0: Data is “striped” across all drives, as if they were one large drive, for speed, without backup.
- RAID 1: Data is written identically to at least two drives, thereby producing a "mirrored set" (1) drive from a set can fail while continuing to operate (Requires even # of drives)
- RAID 5: Data is striped and parity information (Redundant data used to recover lost data) is striped. Any (1) drive can fail and the data for that drive will be on the other drives.
- RAID 6: Similar to Raid 5, but data is striped and (2) drives worth of parity information are striped. Any (2) Drives can fail and continue to operate.
- RAID 10: Data is striped (for speed) and mirrored (for redundancy) across all drives (1) Drive from a set can fail while continuing to operate, meaning up to 5 drives could fail as long as they aren't part of a mirrored-pair (Requires even # of drives). Raid 10 is the most secure portable RAID available, and can be as fast as RAID 0 as long as RAID 10 has 2X the drives to a comparable RAID 0 set up.
Thunderbolt™ is the input/output technology that enables fast transfer speeds and extends that speed across several devices at the same time. Thunderbolt carries both data and display signals over a single cable while simultaneously providing 10 watts of power to peripherals. Introduced in early 2011, the interface was a collaboration between Intel and Apple. The Thunderbolt was originally a Mac exclusive, however PC manufacturers are starting to adopt this technology.
