The Vess R2000 series offers a cost-effective way to meet performance goals while simplifying administration and adding flexibility. Choose to use a FC SAN for heavy I/O applications like video editing, high performance computing or scientific research. Use the iSCSI SAN for less intensive I/O applications like data backup or remote replication. And use NAS for video surveillance, virtualized environments or general file sharing applications.
- 10G iSCSI and NAS support
The Vess R2000 series now includes the 10G iSCSI dual active-active solution and dual active-standby NAS feature which includes file level data services. As a NAS solution with dual controllers in a single box, the Vess R2000 saves costs and space over traditional single controller NAS devices that provide a cluster NAS solution for high availability which limits expansion capabilities, doubles the system configuration required, and doubles the total amount of disks. Plus, the Vess R2000's high availability dual controller design provides fast access to data and makes sure that if one of the system's controllers fail, the remaining controller takes over and provides the same outstanding service.
- Virtualization ready
Ready to confront any challenge in today's virtualized IT environment, the Vess R2000 is certified with DataCore SANsymphony-V, VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer, and Microsoft Hyper-V enabling customers to virtualize their IT infrastructure and start their move into the cloud. Additionally, the Vess R2000 series now supports VMWare VAAI which reduces resource overhead on VMWare vSphere ESXi hosts, significantly improving performance for storage-intensive operations such as storage cloning, zeroing, and more.
- Simplifying management and support
Simplicity and ease of use are absolutely crucial for SMBs with limited IT resources. The Vess R2000 series is designed specifically with SMBs in mind as it features One Plug Auto Service (OPAS) to reduce maintenance complexity and streamline an easier tech support workflow. Simply plug in a USB drive and the user can retrieve information about the system for tech support, upgrade firmware, reset passwords and much more.
