Stotage Network Management
Lowers Management Costs and Extends ROI

A cornerstone of StoneFly Business AdvantageTM, StoneFly Network Storage Management provides key functions users have come to expect in an IP SAN: Centralized management, storage consolidation, access control, storage provisioning, volume management and mirroring. These features built into the Storage Concentrator®, powered by the StoneFusion® Intelligent Network Platform, reduce the total cost of ownership by lowering management costs and increasing storage utilization.

By adding block-level storage intelligence to the IP networking core, Storage Concentrators deliver all the benefits of SANs, including increased storage utilization through storage consolidation, feature-rich managed storage capabilities, rapid deployment of new storage and SAN-based backup capabilities.

Storage Concentrators enable storage provisioning, which turns physical disks into virtual storage units, or logical volumes. These logical volumes are presented to the host as local SCSI disks. Each logical volume points to physical storage in disk arrays by blocks. StoneFly’s Storage Concentrators also facilitate advanced storage management functions, such as synchronous mirroring through StoneFly Reflection and FailOver Clustering.

StoneFusion Intelligent Network Storage Platform

StoneFly’s IP SANs are based on the company’s patent-pending storage networking foundation architecture, StoneFusion. An intelligent iSCSI storage packet routing technology, the StoneFusion Intelligent Networking Platform effectively standardizes message/file and storage I/O onto an Ethernet/IP network to ultimately “converge” existing networking and storage architectures.

Storage Concentrators operate directly in the data path (in-band) between the servers and storage devices, and also provide disaster recovery and business continuance support, such as FailOver, mirroring and backup/restore.

About StoneFly Networks

StoneFly Networks® is the innovator of powerful, cost-effective data protection and management for departments, workgroups and mid-tier organizations via the StoneFly Business AdvantageTM solutions suite.

Storage Concentrator i3000 Benefits:
  • Centralizes storage management, control, and monitoring of logical storage volumes
  • Easy-to-use HTML-based management interface
  • Works regardless of the type of storage devices or network locations of the physical storage devices involved
  • Built-in StoneFly Reflection for local and campus synchronous mirroring of Storage Concentrator volumes TM
  • Built-in StoneFly Snapshot to protect against loss of critical data
  • Centralizes access and control, allowing administrator to designate which physical storage devices are accessible to individual hosts
  • Isolates departmental and work group storage from data center storage while delegating management authority to personnel at the workgroup or departmental level
  • Maximizes utilization of storage resources and eliminates waste by making the storage available on the IP network
  • Allocates Fibre Channel SAN storage to servers on the IP network
  • Allows administrator to quickly respond to changes in storage requirements
  • Supports a wide range of software, including StoneFly Replicator®, StoneFly Replicator® CDP, and StoneFly Business AdvantageTM
