Background

Resilient and scalable storage is key to running an always-on internet facing platform.

The Bunker can solution a dedicated single array or a clustered array based on your requirements. We connect it to your platform on-site at The Bunker, and then manage the day to day admin, maintenance and part replacements over the lifetime of the Storage Area Network (SAN). A dedicated SAN is the best way to ensure consistent latency and throughput to your platform, for workloads that require it.

Alternatively if you need storage on-tap, with set minimum latency and throughput tiers, we can offer dedicated volumes from our enterprise SAN cluster over IP, on 10Gb uplinks. Network connections to our shared SAN are secured at layer 2 and layer 3.

Ceph and Gluster are software storage solutions that run on commodity hardware, stitching the local storage available on several standalone hosts into a single, resilient and high-performance storage system.

Commonly marketed under the term Software Defined Storage, these systems can help avoid the expense and scalability limitations of conventional vendor storage devices such as SANs and NASs.

Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) is used to extend the software-defined storage stack in your Windows Server, enabling you to build highly-available storage systems with local storage.

S2D is seen as an alternative to a traditional SAN/NAS product, providing a more cost effective and scalable solution by creating a pool of resilient storage tiers across Windows Server 2016 nodes. You can run your VM workload on the Storage Servers simultaneously, making the solution extremely cost effective.
