Mass Storage AS3000

Brief Introduction

Multi-control mass storage system platform with high reliability, high performance and high scalability.

AS3000,which Inspur has complete independent intellectual property right, is an independent designed mass storage system platform for the client in the industries of finance telecommunications, exploration survey, air and space information, biological engineering, meteorology, energy. AS3000 also supports NAS, IPSAN functions, integrates with iSCSI, InfiniBand and 10Gb Ethernet interfaces, and includes the current main storage network infrastructure and host connections. AS3000 mass storage system platforms can efficiently and rationally integrate user current storage network infrastructure, unify the deployment and centralize the management, and also can reduce energy consumption and lower overall cost of ownership (TCO). Based on the various functions of network storage system, it integrates the functions of data protection, disaster recovery, and becomes the next-generation storage system of high reliability, high performance and intelligence.

Functional Features

Mass storage, integration of innovation

  • Multi-controller architecture, the controllers can achieve load balance and avoid the risks of single controller failure as well as the performance bottlenecks.
  • Support NFS/CIFS file sharing as well as other protocols and enable to be installed with Windows, Linux, Unix and other operating systems, which are able to coexist in the complex network environment, without the need of configuring storage for a variety of file protocols separately. It also can easily store and share the data across different OS.
  • Support NAS/IPSAN; support IP SAN and NAS to run at the same time in order to meet the demands of different times, different locations and different business of customers.
  • Support rich host connection interfaces; support the network connection of iSCSI, InfiniBand, and Gigabit Ethernet, as well as seamless access to your existing environment. At the same time, it can provide users with IB of high bandwidth and 10 Gigabit network connections, satisfying customers’ differential requirement of high bandwidth and high performance.
  • Fully support SSD/FC/SAS/SATA disks and modular capacity expansion mode.

Continuous data protection, worry-free of business running

  • Support the functions of data volume isolation mapping, data snapshots, rollback, remote volume replication (synchronous/asynchronous), remote data replication and recovery, dynamic capacity expansion of logical partition.
  • Support disaster recovery capabilities to provide users with a high level of data protection and disaster recovery ability.
  • Support the controller working modes of Active-Active, Active-Standby to protect the overall system availability, data access and business operations.
  • The availability of system reaches 99.999%.

Modular design, user-friendly management

  • AS3000 major components are modular designed, so it can be easily selected, maintained, and upgraded according to client’s need. The management is simple and convenient.
  • Support automated RAID building; the RAID-level can achieve the online changing without affecting the data applications.
  • Comprehensive monitoring management methods are adopted. When the system is abnormal, in addition to the alarm light through the machine, the administrator will be informed of the abnormal status through email.
  • Centralized deployment and unified management.

Green and energy saving

  • The whole system adopts energy saving processor, chipset, fans, heat sinks and other components to improve the energy efficiency of utilization.
  • Adopt unique chassis design and optimized cooling in order to reduce energy consumption.
  • Support Maid disk energy-saving technology to reduce disk energy consumption as well as the expenses.
  • Support thin provisioning technology to greatly improve storage resource utilization.
