Simple Storage Management
Managing storage can be complex and time consuming. The StorageDirector OS allows professionals to take control of their important data, by allowing them to point-and-click their way to file sharing, backup and recovery, and even high performance block storage. By incorporating enterprise features such as replication, snapshot, failover, and other industry standard features, the StorageDirector OS is a robust platform to deliver easy management of your storage resources.
Pogo Linux is able to provide the incredible expansion capabilities of the StorageDirector 5000 at breakthrough prices by leveraging an open and standards based hardware architecture and the power of its Linux-based StorageDirector OS. While other storage architectures might require expensive fiber channel or complex clusters in order to expand beyond a few terabytes, the StorageDirector 5000 allows expansion over 200 terabytes with simple and affordable off-the-shelf disk enclosures. Since the StorageDirector 5000 uses SAS technology that supports both high end SAS drives and lower cost SATA drives, users can opt for low-cost, high-performance, or a combination that meets their needs.
Integration and Interoperability
The StorageDirector 5000 can be added to a network and begin serving files and data immediately to a large variety of users and applications. Because a single system supports all standard file protocols, as well as iSCSI, and optionally fiber channel, a StorageDirector 5000 can simplify and expand the accessibility of data on a network.
