Atlantis USX SmartSnap – Snapshots for the agile IT infrastructure
Snapshots are one of the most widely used data services within storage. They have been around for a long time and most storage vendors support them. The traditional vendors however had designed their snapshot capabilities when the IT environment looked very different. Storage was primarily disk-based (HDD) and technologies like deduplication were still immature for primary storage environments with a big tag “try at your own risk” mentioned in user guides (usually the guides would first mention the performance penalty and then render the feature all but useless with best practice).
In the software-defined storage world, we have a new opportunity to re-invent how technology is used and deliver exactly what IT needs, leveraging our (Atlantis’) enterprise proven de-duplicating filesystem– without the limitations of legacy code and monolithic storage frames. So when it came to designing Snapshots for Atlantis USX (and HyperScale), we asked ourselves what would be the most valuable solution for our customers? And so we set out to provide the best snapshot implementation in our industry today. We focused on four key parameters:
