Global, distributed deduplication is built into SanApptX file system, reducing the footprint of archived data wherever it is stored.
Support for multiple drive types
SanApptX supports multiple, configurable storage tiers – from SSD to cloud storage – allowing you to match storage costs to the workload requirements. Pay for performance when you need it, use lower-cost options when you don’t.
SanApptX includes automatic data tiering that places data on the appropriate tier based on access or policies. This allows for automated archival. As data becomes less frequently accessed, it will be moved to lower, less expensive storage tiers. These tiers are still part of the same file system, meaning that the logical location and level of accessibility remain intact.
Seamless Cloud Integration
SanApptX enables direct integration with cloud storage, not through an optional plug-in or gateway, but directly through the SanApptX file system. This extend deduplication seamlessly transitions into the cloud, providing an extremely low-cost storage option.
Distributed facilities can handle their local storage needs with local appliances, while all data is automatically replicated and synchronized across any cloud architecture for long-term retention and availability across the organization for immediate retrieval.
For geographically dispersed sites, data can be cached at each location to optimize access times and minimize bandwidth usage for popular content.
