IBM Scale-out NAS (SONAS) is a solution for cloud storage implementations. It is designed to consolidate files that are scattered in multiple storage locations and allow them to be efficiently shared and managed.
Sonexion system’s modular, pre-integrated and compact design keeps costs low while delivering the right performance for analytics, compute clusters and supercomputers of all types. Performance and capacity scale efficiently in modular building blocks, reducing the number of hard disk drives needed to achieve sustained performance at scale. Performance is optimized end to end, from the compute clients to the network to the storage subsystem, based on the application workload.
Data protection is provided through Grid RAID, a declustered parity form of data protection that speeds up rebuild times three and a half times over traditional RAID, while maintaining Lustre performance.
IBM Scale-out NAS is ranked 15th in NAS while Sonexion Scale-out Lustre Storage System is ranked 18th in NAS.
