Compellent zNAS integrates the highly scalable Zettabyte File System (ZFS) with a Fluid Data architecture to consolidate all enterprise data onto a single platform. Users have file-level access and control for audit and regulatory compliance. The product enables organizations to consolidate file-based data and manage it together with block-based data. Ideal for mixed OS environments, this unified storage solution provides file-level access and control with block-level efficiency and scalability.


ZFS Architecture, Advanced Manageability

Compellent zNAS is ideal for midsize and large organizations with mixed UNIX, Linux and Windows environments. zNAS supports Common Internet File System (CIFS) and Network File System (NFS) protocols in the same name space. Data can be shared with ease across server platforms, regardless of size or type. All system administration is performed using a central, wizard-based interface. And built-in intelligence automates volume creation and mapping.


Features & Benefits

High Performance, Availability File serving operations remain separate from application operations to avoid bottlenecks from CPU-intensive processes. Yet all I/O requests are spread across the storage pool and processed in parallel, increasing overall performance and availability.Clustered configuration and hardware redundancy further enhance availability, with active/active failover and advanced multipathing (MPxIO) ensuring no single point of failure.
Unified NAS and SAN storage By consolidating all file-level and block-level storage into a single scalable storage environment, reduces overall storage complexity and costs.
Fully Integrated Support Delivers high performance, scalable network attached storage for customers with an emphasis on NFS in Linux/Unix environments.Supports CIFS for Microsoft customers while allowing for both protocols in a single, ZFS name space.
Clustered scalable and reliable NAS Supports clustering (two) and redundant hardware components that help organizations realize high data availability and protection through fault tolerance.  This provides no single point of failure for the solution.
