BridgeSTOR has created V-NAS (Virtual Network Attached Storage) technology, the first NAS product developed with a Global Namespace and designed for multi-region storage access. The V-NAS architecture provides this unique capability by separating the NAS front-end file technology from the NAS backend storage while using an out-of-band metadata controller. For the first time, IT administrators may now use the same NAS interface with exchangeable backend storage platforms supplied from multiple storage vendors. V-NAS also extents Public Cloud and Object Storage into the corporate environment by adding Active Directory support, previous versions, global file locking, watch folders for data movement, security auditing and other high end features designed for corporate IT environments.
BridgeSTOR’s Coronado V-NAS for Enterprise is a scalable NAS solution designed for multi-site, multi-region or a global namespace. The Coronado V-NAS for Enterprise solution includes a Coronado V-NAS Global View Manager and two Coronado V-NAS Global Access Points. The Coronado V-NAS Global View Manager is a central metadata controller supplying all file and directory listings, deduplication lookup, ACL storage, file locking and other services required for global NAS environments. Coronado V-NAS Access Points are stateless servers that supply all existing file-based protocols including SMB, NFS, SFTP to end-users of the enterprise. Coronado V-NAS Access Points may be placed where required for performance or access and may be installed and configured within minutes. Each Coronado V-NAS Access Point has multiple caching options including a read-only cache or a read-write asynchronous cache which helps reduces cloud latency.
BridgeSTOR’s Coronado V-NAS Standalone Access Point has been designed for corporations that do not require a global namespace but still require file access to Public Cloud or Private Cloud Object Storage. Coronado V-NAS for Workgroups supplies SMB, NFS and SFTP file access for corporate users and is ideal for backup to the cloud applications. The Coronado V-NAS Standalone Access Point includes most of the features of the Coronado V-NAS Global Access Point, including a read-only cache or the read-write asynchronous cache reducing cloud latency.
The Coronado V-NAS Archive Access Point has been designed for all businesses that require a drive letter interface for storing backup or archive data to cloud storage. The Coronado V-NAS Archive Access Point translates existing file-based protocols such as SMB II/III, NFS to cloud storage. The Coronado V-NAS Archive Access Point acts as a sophisticated cache for backup applications while sending data to cloud storage as most backup applications read/modify and write the data. When a Coronado V-NAS Archive Access Point is deployed, all that is required are the bucket/blob credentials and the endpoint address of the cloud storage. Coronado V-NAS Archive Access Points may be deployed in less than 30-minutes.
The Coronado V-NAS Acceleration Server has been designed to reduce latency to Public Cloud or Private Object Storage while adding a central cache for all local Coronado V-NAS Access Points. Data sent to the cloud is much slower than data sent to local disk. The Coronado V-NAS Acceleration Server is a asynchronous server that allows data to be committed instantly to corporate users while backend processes send data to cloud storage. Active-Active options are available for IT Professionals that want to sleep better at night.
