Sydney Scale-out NAS
The Sydney Scale-out NAS has been designed for businesses that require affordable scale out NAS storage for one or multiple environments. The Sydney Scale-Out NAS build on the BridgeSTOR Brooklyn technology includes Windows with Active Directory and NFS access to object storage. Most object storage today is built with Erasure Coding technology that removes traditional RAID support allowing for storage platforms to easily scale past 100TB, 500TB or Petabytes of storage. However, object storage has been built with just a standard S3 interface and most have multiple ingest heads to support high performance. Sydney adds Windows and NFS protocols to Object Storage while using a Round Robin algorithm communicating with the ingest heads creating a high performance tier of Scale Out Storage. Sydney will also synchronize NAS data with Cloud Storage or remote locations allowing multiple locations of the enterprise to accumulate the same data. This is ideal for backup, long term archive or collaboration of files.
