FlexPool

Brings together disk and flash management in a unified data pool.

We created the FlexPool technology to ease the pain of managing storage growth. It solves traditional storage problems like difficult scalability, low performance and business interruption caused by downtime for updates/upgrades.

Live expansion

Forget about downtime and performance penalties, pool growth can happen live while the storage is in production.

Unlimited scalability

Increasing the size of any FlexPool will not be a problem. Each pool is theoretically limited to 300 million petabytes.

Hybrid acceleration

FlexPool keeps “hot data” in a fast SSD/NVRAM cache layer. This creates an efficient mix of regular and high perf. disks.

Easy portability

With FlexPool, data pools, including their snapshots and shares, can be easily exported and imported between Syneto storage arrays.

Hardware freedom

We believe you shouldn’t be tied to proprietary hardware controllers that force you to always buy from the same vendor.

Instant upgrades

Upgrade storage array capacity by simply adding JBODS full of disks to existing SAS ports and expanding the FlexPool.


InstaSnap

Point-in-time data snapshots for easy backup, replication and recovery.

Don’t be part of the 93% of organisations which file for bankruptcy after loosing their data. Exiting storage disaster recovery solutions create slow and expensive backups and replications which are limited in number and lead to increased costs.

Instant & unlimited

InstaSnap technology makes your array capable of instantaneous, live, point-in-time “images” of your whole data.

Auto-scheduling

A time/budget saving tech. that allows automatic snapshot scheduling with variable retention policies for folders/virtual disks.

Incremental replication

Achieve true Disaster Recovery with fast incremental snapshot replication between sites with low bandwidth consumption and a 10 minute RTO.

Fast recovery

With InstaSnap, rollbacks, cloning, and any other type of point-in-time data recovery operations happen almost instantaneously.

Space efficiency

Snapshots and clones are created instantaneously, with zero space allocation. They take up space only when data changes.

Zero overhead

Snapshots with InstaSnap do not use resources and do not have any impact on the the performance of your storage array.


IntegriCheck

Ensures long-term data integrity with smart control instruments.

The job of any storage array boils down to this: when reading a data it should always return the same that was previously written. Traditional solutions can’t detect data corruptions caused by disk firmware bugs, drive errors, controller problems or hardware RAID vulnerabilities.

End-to-end data integrity

Long-term data consistency with checksums, instead of HDD sector-size modifications or dedicated hardware.

Self-healing data

Like a living creature, your array has the ability to heal data structures by returning corrupted sections to a working state.

No silent-corruption

Your array becomes immune to silent data corruption caused by bit rot, phantom writes, DMA parity errors and driver bugs.

Software RAID

Expensive hardware RAID controllers belong in the past. Syneto arrays use smart software RAID to ensure high redundancy levels.

Extended warranty

Gain peace of mind with the Syneto StorageCare program. Disks in your storage array carry a 5 years warranty.


SpaceBoost

Data reduction techniques to squeeze more data in the same space.

We believe in a greener, more efficient storage. We squeeze as much data as possible in the same amount of space reducing environmental impact and costs. Existing storage products apply off-line reduction methods, limited to 1 volume/filesystem and using slower algorithms.

In-line Compression

SpaceBoost uses an in-line block-by-block approach to increases IO efficiency and reduces write sizes for better performance.

In-line Deduplication

Performs live scans of the incoming data blocks. Duplicate data blocks are automatically removed to save the space being used.

Thin Provisioning

This data reduction method allocates space only when and where it is required, ensuring it is not wasted by over-provisioning resources.

Longer disk life

This technology greatly increases the lifespan of your disks by applying measures which limit the number of disk writes.

More data less space

With the SpaceBoost technology active, you can squeeze 2x-5x more data in the same amount of space, saving space and money.

Optimised reduction

For additional performance, data reduction algorithms are optimised for the latest generation of Intel E5 Xeon CPU’s.
