IntOS VSAN

Ceph Powered Software Defined Storage and a series tools by ComputingStack

Software Defined Storage a.k.a VSAN


IntOS VSAN is Software Defined Storaqe solution by ComputingStack. IntOS VSAN enables customer to seamlessly extend virtualization to storage, creating a hyper-converged solution that simply works with your existing hardware platforms, commodity hardware or storage intensive chassis. Hyper-converged deployment will give customer flexibility to make full use of drive chassis of compute server to compose an even higher performance Storage Area Network, rather than a traditional way of procuring pricy commercial SAN. With IntOS VSAN, even storage intensive chassis becomes optional since compute nodes will be sufficiently used to provide drive tray space. For a typical server rack with Dell R610 compute node, each node can contribute up to 10TB storage to VSAN. However, the scalability and data resiliency achieved by SDx, bring sustainability to the business than traditional storage solution.

IntOS VSAN is powered by Ceph, the de facto standard of enterprise storage solution of today. As standard architecture, however ComputingStack allows the possibility of supporting Infiniband as well RDMA over Ethernet technology.
