Seanodes has invented the Shared Internal Storage (SIS), a revolutionary technology that helps companies reduces and sometimes eliminates the need for traditional networked storage (NAS and SAN). Exanodes, the Seanodes'SIS platform, aggregates internal disks or DAS connected to application servers into a large virtual and shared storage space that is accessible via LUNs, behaving exactly like a traditional SAN array. Exanodes' access metrics are very fast due to parallel processing enabled by its architecture and it supports typical enterprise features such as redundant striping, providing High Availability in a cluster.
Exanodes is extremely versatile and can be used in both virtual (VMware ESX, Xen and RHEV) and physical infrastructure (servers running Linux or MS Windows). Exanodes is a perfect storage solution for infrastructure based on commoditized servers or blade servers and can radically alter the economics and possibilities in data storage and application processing.
Recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor, Seanodes has earned multiple awards from both industry analysts and media commentators for its technology. Seanodes was founded in 2002 by data-storage specialists with a proven and recognized track record.
Seanodes has offices in France (Paris and Toulouse) and in the UK (London).
Shared Internal Storage – SIS, allows users to aggregate and share disks and arrays directly attached to, or embedded in application or ESX servers as if they were part of a virtual external storage array.
You already know and appreciate the simplicity of NAS, the high performance offered by SAN and you regret every day the affordability of DAS. You think that it’s impossible to get the best of both worlds in one solution. Think again. And discover how Seanodes’ Shared Internal Storage can help you to do a lot more with a lot less.
