Imbalances of storage pools detection capable
Cleversafe, a provider of storage offerings, has unveiled new cloud storage platform, with increased storage and security capabilities.
The new cloud storage platform with its object store, disk balancing and secure network connections between the Accesser and Slicestor nodes enables storage administrators to adjust capacity as needed, ensures better utilisation, and eliminates malicious security attacks.
The cloud storage platform features built-in thin provisioning that provide alerting capabilities to automate the management of the storage system for storage administrators, and hard quotas which proactively restrict data writes.
The new disk balancing features equalises capacity across the storage drives within a storage appliance for better capacity utilisation and detects imbalances of storage pools and shifts objects across disks within a single appliance once capacity is past 50% used.
In addition, its secure network connections to the slice servers feature secures TLS/SSL network connections between the Accesser and each Slicestor node are available for situations in which users do not trust the network between the Accesser or software SDK being used and the Slicestor nodes, addressing malicious sniffing of the network.
The company said if network traffic is tapped or routed through an attacker, the attacker learns nothing of the content of the transmission, and any alterations will be detected and discarded.
Cleversafe president and CEO Chris Gladwin said with this release, they continue to address the needs of their customers as well as market demand, by optimising their platform for efficiency and security, and to enable storage administrators to ensure their data centres are more agile and responsive.
