    3. Volume sectional dynamic adjustment can change the size of volume sections according to application requirement.
    4. The dynamic defragmentation function can efficiently manage the volume storage, integrate the idle capacity in the volumes, so as to optimize the utilizing and storage efficiency.
    5. Non-interruptible controller firmware updating
  3. The direct diagnosis and recovering program provide important fault diagnosis assistance, which provides diagnosis and recovering procedures for faults in storage system.

High-level data application function

1. Isolated mapping of data volumes

The isolated mapping function for data volumes can create as much as 512 volumes (LUN) for Inspur AS510H storage system. It can support different host computers, which enables the unity of storage in multi-platform environment. Its flexibility enables a series of host computers with different capacity, performance and data protecting requirement to share the single storage system efficiently. The isolating function of data volumes based on the storage system can only access data in the controller, which ensure the independence, consistency and integrity of data storage.

2. Data snapshot

The data snapshot function based on storage system can carry out timely logical copy of the volumes in the system, realize data multiplexing for backup, application testing, developing, information analysis or data mining. It enables the assisting server to access the snapshot of generated data.

As a complete copy, this high capacity and efficiency snapshot volume can save the disk space efficiently.

This function is also an optimal plan for online data backup and recovery, which enables fast data recovery.

3. Data replication function  

This function can create a cloned volume (complete physical copy) of the existing data volume within the storage system. This cloned volume can be allocated to any host computer as the data copy of the original volume. The read-write operating of the cloned volume will exert no influence on the performance and data security of the original volume, which is the best resolution for data multiplexing and migration.

In the process of creating cloned volume through data replication, all the parameters can be adjusted so as to ensure the full access of the original volume.

4. Data remote synchronization function

The data remote synchronization protect the date by forming copies through constantly copying or mirroring local data into remote storage system. It is also the optimal solution to build remote backup and disaster recovery.

The data remote synchronization supports various sync options, which is very flexible, allowing the administrator to optimize the data synchronization.

The data remote synchronization supports synch, async and other synchronization modes, which enables dynamic mode switch. Data synchronization can be combined with data snapshot, so as to extend information multiplexing and value.

The advanced data application functions provided by AS510H storage system can maximize its value for users on AS500H’s high-performance hardware platform.
