SCALA, a SANS Digital product, has once again redefined how we store and protect data. A recent deployment of a 7.5 Petabyte SCALA system has successfully reached an outstanding average performance exceeding 150 GB/s in a single namespace. Specifically designed for data & metadata intensive workloads, this new achievement is a direct result of the distributed/parallel file systems provided by SCALAfs and ScalaManager software combined with SANS Digital's high-end data storage servers. The end result is a scale-out system that offers low-latency with incredible performance that is optimized for both large files (>10GB) and small files (KB-sized).
High performance:Increase the total system bandwidth and performance as you increase your storage. A 2PB rack of standard servers with SATA disks and dual 10GbE can deliver 18GB/s throughput.
Proven proprietary file system: Eliminate performance bottlenecks without the use of traditional SAN controllers or NAS gateways.
Easy scalability: from 3 nodes of 48TB/ea to 300PB in a single volume.
Reliable File-level RAID: Enables up to 80% utilization, data recovery time is only 1/5 vs. traditional RAID, recovering 3TB in 30 minutes.
Self-monitoring mechanism: Proactively single out inactive hardware to provide high data availability.
Single log-on page for simple management: One part-time IT staff can manage PB levels of storage.
