OSL Storage Cluster

Cluster framework and host-based storage virtualisation

Storage systems represent an important and central component in the IT ifrastructure. Here we take alternative roads, to be able to provide the maximal reliability, performance, scalability and automatization potential.

The central pillar of the integrated software package of our OSL Storage Cluster is the combination of the cluster technology with the Virtual Volume Management, so that all the storage resources can be used without wasting any storage. All additional functional features are based on these fundamental elements. If your storage has a multipath connection, our multipath driver ensures higher throughputs and high availability. Thanks to the integrated I/O bandwidth control, the data flow is distributed according to the needs and in a way that helps to have a good performance. Noteworthy side effect: I/O bandwidth control also helps to prevent processor bottlenecks.
