In traditional IT environments, storage performance scaling is achieved by "replacing". When the required performance exceeds what the old systems can provide, users replace them with more powerful new ones. The traditional way of scaling does help users achieve better performance, but it is done at the cost of downtime and wasted old investment. Implementing distributed load-balancing technology on a virtualized foundation, Infortrend delivers scale-out storage to ease the pain points. Infortrend scale-out storage allows users to increase performance by "adding" new systems to the current configuration of the virtual pool. The load-balancing technology will automatically migrate the existing data to balance workloads across the environment and then continuously maintain the optimized performance by evenly distributing data blocks among member systems of the virtual pool. Without disrupting online service, Infortrend scale-out storage combines the power of old and new systems to linearly boost productivity in a cost-effective way.
Infortrend scale-out storage can bring you:
- Continuously makes storage systems work at their fullest power to support applications
- Requires no prior planning or manual operation to optimize system performance or rebalance environments
- Eliminates planned system downtime for performance optimization
