Multi-Server EnvironmentMulti-Server Consolidated iSCSI Storage
As a business grows, so does the underlying IT infrastructure to support it. As time goes by, servers are added for each application, and the storage for these servers can quickly get out of hand. When dedicated storage systems are directly attached to servers, storage is typically inefficiently used, with too much storage on one system and not enough on another. Also, system managers spend more and more of their time, which could be better used elsewhere, managing their servers and individual storage systems. One key solution for simplifying environments, gaining better control and making the best usage of storage resources is storage consolidation.
The DroboElite connects seamlessly to your existing TCP/IP network and utilizes the industry-standard iSCSI protocol to provide simple, consolidated storage for your servers. With the award-winning BeyondRAIDTM technology with thin provisioning at its core, the DroboElite allows the efficient utilization of storage resources across multiple iSCSI-attached servers. The inserted drives create a common pool of storage that is allocated seamlessly across every server. Each server only takes the storage that it needs and releases storage to the common pool when files are deleted.
