StorONE - TRU Software Defined Storage - Maximum Performance

StorONE S1 - Simplicity without compromise


A storage solution that unites everything in ONE product

The S1-Software solution delivers all the improvements in today's storage technology: high performance, density and price savings at a new level, for small, medium and large businesses. This gives you a future-proof solution, lasting integrity, unlimited snapshots, and up to 1.5 million IOPS delivered in a 2U system. Compared to similar standard solutions, you benefit from lower cost and about five times faster performance, regardless of hardware or protocols, whether on-premise or in the cloud.


The 3 main advantages of S1 TRU Storage/h3>

With Less More - The Lowest CAPEX

  • Pay less than your annual maintenance contract for the lowest total cost of ownership (CAPEX and OPEX). That means 5x higher performance and capacity per RU or 80% saving on storage costs, you decide.
  • Total Resource Utilization (TRU) - extract more from the drives, e.g. 70,000 IOPS / single SSD.
  • None of the proprietary drivers need to be installed on the host, configurations are also dropped
  • Up to 1.5 million IOPS / 15 Gbps, up to 368 TB of physical capacity in a 2U AFA JBOD.
  • Up to 10PB HDD in a single enclosure.
  • Up to 500,000 IOPS / 10GBps can be deployed with a virtual machine with only two nodes.

Integrated data protection and storage

  • Unlimited snapshots and redundancy without sacrificing performance.
  • Any drive failure per volume and no RAID restrictions.
  • Powerful storage capabilities in a single solution that supports all protocols, drives, workloads, and applications.
  • Instantly backup and restore the entire dataset in seconds.
  • Privacy for each redundancy level, configurable per volume.
  • Persistent integrity enables the mere delivery of virtual machines. Consistent troubleshooting does not require any special hardware.

Unified Enterprise Storage - Easy to use with cloud-like flexibility.

  • All storage services, including data protection and retention, work without sacrificing performance or planning.
  • All storage protocols (FC, iSCSI, NFS, CIFS / SMB and Object) are shared on the same drives. All you need is a suitable network card (HBA or IP).
  • You can mix and match different drives to get the maximum performance and density you need for your applications.
  • It is not necessary to manage separate systems, to plan and scale per protocol.
  • You will receive FC power at the same price as the object storage.
  • S1 can be installed in less than 30 minutes on physical or virtual appliances without hardware limitations.
