StoneFly USS

USS™ is the ideal hyper-converged infrastructure solution to consolidate all of your video management server and storage systems into one easy to manage appliance.
 

USS™ is the ideal hyper-converged infrastructure solution to consolidate all of your video management server and storage systems into one easy to manage appliance. Use of virtualized operating systems allows for complete hardware utilization and considerable reduction in power/cooling costs. USS flexibility replaces the “fixed hardware model” of the past with on-demand resource allocation (such as CPU, memory, storage, etc.) based on your application needs.

The USS appliance includes a Virtual SAN Storage Appliance (SCVM™) and the ability to create additional Virtual Storage or Servers as needed. By migrating your existing Windows and Linux physical servers to VMware-compatible Virtual Machines on the StoneFly USS appliance, you can greatly reduce your hardware footprint and run many more applications on much less hardware.

 

With the StoneFly USS, you can:

  • Replace your datacenter by migrating existing Windows and Linux physical servers (including Video Management Workstations and Servers) into Virtual Machines hosted on the StoneFly USS.
  • Quickly spin up new Virtual Machines on the StoneFly USS.
  • Use the StoneFly USS appliance’s iSCSI (and/or optional Scale Out NAS) storage for your:
    • Physical machines
    • Virtual Machines hosted on the StoneFly USS
    • Virtual Machines hosted on third-party appliances running VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, or Citrix XenServer
    • Global shared back-end object/block/image storage for OpenStack
  • Create numerous delta-based snapshots to back up the iSCSI volumes containing your VMs and storage. Then use mountable read-write snapshot volumes for recovery.
  • Synchronously replicate (campus mirror) all of your VMs and storage to a second on premises USS appliance for business continuity.
  • Asynchronously replicate all of your VMs and storage to the cloud or a StoneFly USS at a remote site for disaster recovery.
  • Protect your data and increase system uptime with high performance hardware RAID.
  • Optimize your data with StoneFly’s optional enterprise-level features including data deduplication, encryption, thin provisioning, and more.
  • Scale out storage and VMs across multiple USS nodes.

Business Continuity

Perfect Solution for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Delta-Based Snapshots

Virtual Machines installed on the StoneFly USS along with their hyper-converged storage are protected by StoneFly’s advanced delta-based snapshot technology, which allow you to recover a VM, file or volume from up to 63 points in time. Easily restore files that have been accidentally deleted, incorrectly modified, corrupted, or infected by a virus. Snapshot volumes are fully mountable and feature read and write capability if needed. Optional VSS agents ensure that your databases are properly quiesced for accurate snapshots.

Synchronous Replication (Campus Mirroring)

StoneFly’s real-time Synchronous Mirroring of your Virtual Machines and hyper-converged storage to a secondary USS appliance (campus mirroring) on your premises over the Local Area Network (LAN) allows you to have a full and identical copy of everything on your primary USS. Delta-based snapshots on the secondary appliance maintain point in time recovery. To ensure that your recovery measures are fully-effective, you can easily spin up replica VMs on the mirror appliance for DR testing or compliance.

This secondary USS appliance not only allows you to do everything that you could already do on the primary appliance, but also allows you to spin up one or all of your VMs on the mirror appliance in the event that a VM on the primary appliance has failed or if the entire primary appliance is down. When the primary appliance is repaired, a bare metal recovery of the primary appliance can be performed from the secondary appliance to restore the mirror.

Asynchronous Replication

For complete business continuity and disaster recovery, StoneFly’s optional Asynchronous Replication to a remote site or to the cloud allows your Virtual Machines and data to be stored and protected off-site in case of disaster at the local site. As with the mirror appliance, you can spin up your Virtual Machines, replicate data back to the primary USS appliance (failback), or perform bare metal recoveries on replacements of the destroyed appliances.
