RAIDIX 5.X
Software-defined storage for data intensive tasks and environments
Software Defined Storage for Data Intensive Tasks and Environments
RAIDIX 5.X enables you to deploy all-flash and hybrid storage with high-speed block (SAN) and file (NAS) access. Empowered by innovative RAID technologies RAIDIX storage provides stable performance for data intensive tasks and keeps integrity of your business workflow.

Key Features

22GBps in hybrid configuration
Performance penalty in degraded RAID mode less than 10%
Fault tolerant HA cluster
5M IOps in all-flash configuration
NAS protocols: NFS, SMB, AFP, FTP
SAN protocols: FC, IB-SRP, iSCSI, iSER, SAS

What's new in RAIDIX 5.1?

ALUA (Asymmetric Logical Units Access)
In ALUA, data paths between the host and storage nodes are flagged as "optimized" and "non-optimized". If the optimized path is lost, ALUA redirects I/O requests along the non-optimized path, keeping the system operating until the normal state returns.
vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI)
VAAI support has been improved and extended. This API framework from VMware allows virtual machines to perform some operations on storage instead of the virtualization server, thereby reducing the load on CPU, RAM, and SAN.
ERA Engine: RAID size changing
You can increase RAID size and change RAID level when adding new drives for an already created array.
ERA Engine: 512 bytes block size
Support for 512 bytes block size drives, which ensures compatibility with VMware and other operating systems that work with only this block size.
ERA Engine: RAID N+M
RAID N+M (previously not available in ERA Engine) — RAID with the highest rate of data reliability, where users can set the number of disks for checksums allocation.
S.M.A.R.T. drive health monitoring
The automatic drive health monitoring feature, which tracks S.M.A.R.T. attributes to alert you in advance about faulty drives.
High Performance SDS Solution for HDD and All-Flash Storage
Ultra-high bandwidth for the most demanding tasks
Internal logic of RAIDIX storage arrays was originally developed to get maximum benefits for working with massive sequential workloads. It significantly boosts HDDs performance even in low-end storage systems.

To interoperate with solid state drives, RAIDIX storage uses ERA Engine, an innovative software RAID with I/O handling parallelization and lockless datapath. These features raise up storage performance to the level of flash potential bandwidth. Moreover, the system shows high IOps and low latency even in mixed I/O workloads like VDI and financial transaction processing.
RAIDIX Storage Demonstrates The Lowest Impact of Drives Failure
The lowest impact of hardware failures
Driven by innovative RAID technologies, RAIDIX storage demonstrates minimum performance penalty when a drive goes out. It helps to maintain smooth application workflow and data integrity in case of emergency.

RAIDIX has dual controller configuration to eliminate single point of failure and prevent impact from the most common hardware failures. To protect data from natural and man-driven disasters, RAIDIX can create synchronized copies of data in a secondary data center.
RAIDIX Storage Is Ready To Be Integrated Into Existing Infrastructure
Easy integration into existing infrastructure
RAIDIX storage provides access via file (NFS, SMB, AFP, FTP) or block (FC, IB, iSCSI, iSER, SAS) protocols*.

To provide more hardware freedom, RAIDIX data storage works with any drive from any vendor. Software-driven architecture eliminates storage vendor lock-in and minimizes costs of regular hardware modernizations.

*file and block protocols cannot be provided at the same time
Ready for non-standard projects
Due to simple integration with parallel file systems, RAIDIX data storage can be easily adjusted to outsized and non-trivial installations. Depending on the file system features, storage will get additional scalability, ability to work with immense data volumes or gain performance in multi-node projects.

RAIDIX + Lustre. Collaborating with Lustre FS, RAIDIX storage meets the needs of data storage for HPC clusters.
