DataCore™ vFilO™

Distributed File and Object Storage Virtualization

DataCore™ vFilO™ software offers next-generation distributed file and object storage virtualization for unprecedented visibility and control over widely-scattered data spread across NAS, file servers, and object stores through a multi-site, keyword-searchable global namespace.

Unprecedented visibility and control over widely-scattered data

vFilO combines the capabilities of a scale-out distributed file systems while delivering on the benefits of an object storage system, supporting NFS, SMB, and S3 protocol access to the same set of data.

It continuously migrates, load balances and safeguards data among on-premises and cloud storage tiers using ML and arbitrage modeling to optimize for cost, performance, capacity, availability, compliance as well as other business objectives.

Inactive data is de-duplicated, compressed, and moved to lower cost storage such as a cloud S3 bucket. DataCore’s enterprise-class, scale-out data services are unconstrained by hardware infrastructure or geography and include live data mobility, self-service undelete, snapshots/clones and replication at any level of granularity.

AUTONOMIC DATA PLACEMENT

Visibility & Control

  • Measurably improve productivity and collaboration across sites with faster, easier access to files and multimedia
  • Get all of the unstructured data in the organization under control, under one intelligent system
  • Fulfill data governance obligations through explicit policies or high level objectives
  • Derive new business insights gleaned from metadata

Ultimate Flexibility

  • Expand and modernize as needed with no dependency on device or manufacturer
  • Integrate new server and storage technologies alongside existing equipment w/out painful and expensive forklift upgrades
  • Store data where it makes most sense, traversing sites and hardware architectures, based on explicit policies
  • The power of object and file access methods in one system with multi-protocol support

Efficiency & Simplicity

  • Recover time lost shuffling files around and backing them up
  • Avoid disruptive data migrations
  • Unify management of different types and profiles of data under one system
  • Automate data placement and tracking to optimize capacity and control costs while meeting performance and availability objectives

Compelling Economics

  • Modernize while maximizing the value from existing equipment without having to rip out and replace perfectly good assets.
  • Save by transparently relocating inactive data and replicas on lower cost object storage, deduped and compressed, yet remaining easily accessible as before if needed.
  • Defer buying more premium storage by uncluttering it and fully dedicating its capacity and resources for the active data that deserves it
  • Avoid consuming costly space and bandwidth by performing functions quickly and cost-effectively at the file level rather than at the volume level
