The extensible capacity of a yStor system allows storage hardware to be added on an as-needed basis. A yStor vSAN can employ virtually any type of disk hardware, as well as combinations of disparate disks. Since hardware-centric controllers are not necessary and arrays can be distributed across multiple chassis, ‘maximum device’ limitations are eliminated.
The yStor vSAN uses commodity, off-the-shelf hardware, providing an extremely affordable entry to highly available shared storage. Because the yStor vSAN is hardware-independent, users can leverage nearly any type of storage device. yStor software automatically handles block scheduling and caching, and optimizes performance based on the best-suited characteristics of the device used.
All features of yStor's software platform are accessible via a single, web-based administrative interface. The yStor setup program and web-based administration console guide and simplify configuration, making SAN on-boarding and administration available to the IT generalist.
