EMC CloudArray’s approach to storage management enables you to scale your storage area networks (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) with on-demand cloud storage, providing a permanent solution for block and file capacity expansion, offsite storage, and data archiving.
CloudArray’s software-defined storage modernizes your existing storage strategy by allowing you to:
- Instantly access a new tier of cloud-integrated storage with the look, feel, and performance of local storage
- Meet expanding on-premise and off-premise storage demands without relying on tape
- Automatically store data to a choice of private and public clouds
- Deduplication and compression reduce storage requirements by up to 10x
The result is a storage solution that is straightforward, affordable, and maintenance-free.
Instantly store data in the cloud
CloudArray gives you a virtually unlimited tier of storage in one easy package. Presenting as both an iSCSI or a NAS (CIFS/NFS) device allows CloudArray to work with almost any application. All the data you put on CloudArray—whether primary, file, backup or archive—automatically gets stored in the cloud with dynamic caching policies to improve performance.
Maintain local performance
CloudArray’s local disk cache allows you to keep a partial or complete copy of your data locally while safely storing it to the cloud. By using its sophisticated cache policy manager, you dictate exactly how much data is cached for each volume to help minimize cloud transfers and maximize performance.
Install in minutes
CloudArray software takes just minutes to configure as a physical or virtual appliance and easily connects to your existing direct-, SAN- or NAS-attached storage, as well as more than 20 cloud storage providers. Administration is through CloudArray’s intuitive web-based user interface and portal, so there is no need to deal with a command line interface.
Plan for the unexpected with CloudArray recovery
CloudArray automatically backs up its configuration, providing rapid recovery if your appliance is lost. By spinning up a new CloudArray at a secondary site or in a cloud compute environment, you can quickly access and recover your data.
Encrypt your cloud data in flight and at rest
CloudArray uses sophisticated 256-bit AES encryption to protect your data in the cloud, with metadata encrypted using a separate set of AES-256 keys. Keys are only kept locally on your CloudArray appliance, not with your data in the cloud, virtually eliminating the risk of unauthorized access.
Save space with in-cloud snapshots
CloudArray includes a snapshot scheduler and retention management system to preserve a view of your data at a specific moment. Since CloudArray snapshots take place in the cloud, there is no performance or bandwidth impact. Space-efficient snapshots provide up to a 20x capacity savings over traditional full backups, reducing space requirements while providing continuous, offsite data protection.
Minimize storage costs and network impact
With so much data going to the cloud, it’s natural to worry about the cost of storage and the impact on your network. CloudArray minimizes this impact with sophisticated deduplication and compression technologies that can reduce storage needs up to 10x! And with a granular bandwidth scheduler, you can easily limit the amount of data pushed to the cloud at peak times and throttle your bandwidth usage based on business requirements.
Quickly move data to, from, and between clouds
CloudArray can also be used for bulk data ingestion to rapidly get larger amounts of data into the cloud. Load data onto encrypted disks on-premise, ship those disks to the cloud provider for bulk ingestion, and gain access the data directly from the new provider. Once your data is in the cloud, CloudArray offers self-service cloud-to-cloud migration capabilities any time you want to change or diversify cloud providers.
