The PROMISE VTrak A-Class Shared SAN Filesystem storage appliances are the fastest and easiest to deploy as well as the most cost effective solution in the industry. Unlike expensive solutions that require complex multi-vendor interoperability and support, the VTrak A-Class provides a single-vendor solution that is as easy to setup, configure and manage as it is on the pocketbook.
- The VTrak A3800 shared SAN appliance is ideal for multi-user collaboration to ingest, edit, stream, and process rich media. The VTrakFS file system software integrated with metadata controllers and VTrak primary storage in a single box enables higher performance and workload productivity and for easier management. It is an “All in one” RAID storage subsystem, with integrated metadata appliance and embedded filesystem for Big Data with NAS Gateway
- With A-Class you can “pay as you grow” from 32TB to over 7PB for long-term storage investment protection. Additionally, VTrak x30 is the only Apple-qualified enterprise SAN subsystem, with high-availability dual controllers, hot-swappable modular disk array, and included 3-Year warranty. The A-Class can save 30-40% rack space and energy costs compared to nonintegrated multi-vendor solutions
- VTrak A-Class is optimized for high performance, high bandwidth rich media applications requiring large block sequential IOPs. Plus, it's much less complicated that competing solutions because it's an “all-in-one” metadata appliance, RAID storage subsystem, and file system (VTrakFS)
- A storage industry breakthrough
An integrated, turnkey SAN Filesystem solution, VTrak A-Class reduces the complexity of SAN configuration to a single unit. Requiring zero server hardware, VTrak A-Class allows for high-performance, collaborative editing right out of the box, using the high performing, low latency VTrakFS.
- Single, integrated management suite
Eliminate the amount of software needed to configure and monitor your SAN. VTrak A-Class provides a single application to manage the SAN, clients, and all data storage units connected to A-Class. The A-Class management suite delivers incredible feature support including advanced automatic SAN creation tools, online defragmentation tools, user quotas and directory services support such as active directory, open directory, and much more.
- Highly scalable, online expansion
VTrak A-Class supports huge expansion needs all without system downtime. A-Class supports scale out expansion using VTrak E-Class RAID Heads or scale up expansion using VTrak J-Class JBODs allowing over 7 petabytes of data to be managed by A-Class.
- Lower your TCO
With A-Class being an integrated, turnkey solution, it eliminates the need for extra servers to manage your SAN. No extra servers, equals less power usage, less heat generated and a fewer number of Fibre Channel ports required for your SAN.
- Broad support
A-Class delivers broad support across a heterogeneous environment that seamlessly run in Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux environments without any third party support. A-Class has also been tested to ensure compatibility with the most popular near line editor, backup, and asset management applications.
