Meeting users' demand within organizational constraints shouldn’t be a challenge
1. Massive data growth
Keeping storage capacity in line with user demand requires constant adjustments. On the one hand, you do not want to over-provision because of the associated costs, but on the other hand, you want to easily increase capacity of your volume when needed. There are plenty of proprietary solutions out there that charge you a hefty premium each time you need to add more of their storage. Tiger Pool lets you organically combine multiple off-the-shelf volumes into a single namespace. The operation is risk-free and non-intrusive. Within seconds, users and applications benefit from more storage.
2. High performance applications
Running the fastest servers is good, but not enough. Storage performance and network latencies have a direct impact on the speed at which data can be accessed, and then processed by your applications. Tiger Store allows multiple servers to bypass bandwidth-limited NAS by connecting directly into the raw performance of RAID storage. By connecting directly to high-speed RAID, your servers overcome network latencies and reap the true speed of local-attached storage, while maintaining full read/write access to a shared volume.
3. Non-stop data availability
With the centralization of storage, ensuring data availability in case of hardware malfunction or disaster has become a real concern for administrators. Failure to sustain uptime can have severe negative impact on the business. With Tiger Store High Availability, you can easily configure a dual-node IP server that will deliver uninterrupted service. In many cases, you can take an existing server and add a failover server to it. When using an NTFS file system, there is no need to reformat your storage. Tiger Bridge provides easy disaster recovery using cloud, NAS or tape targets. Unlike traditional sync solutions, which need to restore all files before your recovery site can be operational, Tiger Bridge is ready to resume operations in a fraction of the time because it only relies on stub files being there.
Legal and/or corporate requirements to archive content for a given period of time adds further complexity to your storage infrastructure. With Tiger Bridge, you can easily configure a two-tier solution with policies that will meet your data retention plan. Once data has been pushed to the second tier of storage (minutes or days after creation), it can no longer be deleted by users (only by admin).
