Scale-out Storage

Gluesys’ AnyStor Enterprise is a scale-out storage solution that ensures excellent scalability and availability.

Explosive increase in the amounts of data in the wake of changes in business and IT technology environments has resulted in such diverse key issues as increased storage capacity, securing of I/O capabilities in line with data characteristics, ensuring of the availability of services and data, maintenance of the compatibility of current applications service, and lowering of introduction/expansion/operation costs.

AnyStor Enterprise is an unified scale-out storage, designed to deal effectively with these issues, which will end up being economical because it not only warrants initial minimized introduction and subsequent expansions to meet increasing amounts of data as required from time to time but also enables effective management of storage capacities even under circumstances in which increases in data cannot be estimated.
