StoreWay Optima3000
All enterprises work on critical data, which are in the heart of their activity. The enterprise data centre infrastructures ought to be in line with the user requested service level agreements. Performance and capacity growth solutions needs must be deployed easily. StoreWay Optima3000 line is the only one on the market to fulfil efficient answer to these requirements, thanks to its node mesh architecture. This revolutionary architecture does not concede anything on reliability and data security.
  • Enterprise class storage for Fibre SAN
  • Performance and capacity growth via storage node addition on-line
  • Availability 24/24 7/7 with systematic component redundancy
  • Multi level storage based on SSD, SAS and SATA disks intermix, optimized and virtualizable
  • Up to 384 disks Storage capacity for the first node and expandable to 1536 disks for four nodes
  • Up to 16 12 Gb/s SAS links to disks
  • Energy saving with MAID feature

    Optima3000 Series modular architecture allows to building a very scalable storage mesh. An entry model (Optima3010) made of one storage node can be dynamically on-line expanded to a two-nodes (Optima3020) and ultimately four-nodes (Optima3040) configurations. Starting from 8 host ports/384 disks drives, the configuration can seamlessly be expanded to a 64 host ports/1536 disk drives.

      Availability and Maintainability
    Optima3000 Series guarantees exceptional business continuity by having all components redundant: host directors pair, cache modules pair, disk director pair and quadruple power supplies. Configurations installed and operated with best practices should show more than 99,999% availability. Optima3000 outstanding and unique RAID features choice, protects the data from any disk failure. Specific advanced technology (Phoenix and Extended Data Integrity Feature) avoid silent data corruption and bring preventive defect detection and generate appropriate actions to prevent any operational failure. Dynamic firmware upgrade is supported.

    Optima3000 Series X-bar architecture, up to now reserved to the very high end, allows to providing the best flexibility thanks to its building block architecture. Host ports, disks directors, cache memory, disk capacity and add-on nodes can dynamically be increased in accordance to business requirements. Starting from a minimal cost, Optima3010 is expandable and provides the best size/performance for the company’s service level user’s requirements. Mix of SSD, SAS and SATA disks also brings additional flexibility.

    Managing high volumes of data requires specific tools to optimize the access to data and get the performance from the storage array. Optima3000 enjoys disk pool virtualization and Thin Provisioning technology of high-end class storage. The Optima3000 Storage Manager allows optional dynamically optimized data location to improve performance and take benefit of the best disk technology according to the use of data within the storage array. The software set for Optima includes also: snap, distant and local replications, as well as power saver MAID and write protect software. Performance Management tools allow consolidation of performance data for all Optima and FDA of the site from a central control point. All this software is interoperable with Optima1500 and 1500i as well as FDA. Optima connectivity ensures interoperability with VMware, HP-UX, Solaris as well as Windows, AIX and Linux which take benefit of a full path control thanks to the StoreWay Multipath products.
