 The Intelligent Storage Element – An Introduction

Document:

At X-IO, we think of ourselves as inventors, not integrators. In a market like the storage market, characterized primarily by integration -- the assembly of hardware and software components, many sourced from a third party or based on open source technologies -- our focus on invention, on building storage systems from the ground up to serve particular market segments, is absolutely unique.

AUTORECOVER: Automated Service-Oriented Disaster Recovery

Document: WP-0015-2016027

X-IO believes that disaster recovery should not be this complex, and has a great deal of expertise and experience in this sector. For this reason, X-IO provides AutoRecover™, an automated disaster recovery tool as a key feature of iglu blaze. The AutoRecover tool automates complex disaster recovery tasks, bringing service-oriented recovery to both physical and virtual server infrastructures. This technical white paper discusses the concerns associated with disaster recovery, and explains in detail how AutoRecover technology addresses a full range of recovery challenges.

ISE 780 G3 Hybrid Storage Array Performance Review

Document: WP-0013-20150310

Evaluating the performance of storage systems can be a complicated and difficult process. Workloads can vary widely from one environment to another, making “standardized” tests meaningless when real-world workloads must be accommodated. Performing simple random/sequential, read/write workloads is not enough to emulate the performance demands of real-world environments. Thus, X-IO has developed methods to simulate observed customer workloads for the purpose of performance testing. This paper will detail one of the many tests that are performed at the X-IO world headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado, U.S.A. This test is one of a series of ongoing performance tests designed to evaluate new firmware versions for the Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) storage array.

ISE 820 G3 All Flash Array Performance Review

Document: WP-0012-20150310

The ISE 800 Series G3 All-Flash Array was designed from the ground up to unlock the performance of flash devices, while integrating with the ISE Management infrastructure. Performance profiling for the ISE 800 Series is critical for X-IO partners and customers, and this paper will provide a brief summary of three performance evaluation tests that were run as part of the ISE 800 series development.

ISE 860 Performance Review by StorageReview

Document:

X-IO made their name in enterprise SAN storage by figuring out a way to ensure hard drives and in the case of hybrid configurations, SSDs, never needed to be serviced in the warrantied fiveyear
window. To help achieve this goal, X-IO uses twin DataPacs that are inserted and locked into the fully redundant chassis, delivering a "set it and forget it" style of storage.

This review centers on the ISE 860 G3, with a limited subset of data also collected using the 820 DataPacs in the same chassis.

ISE Intelligent Adaptive Flash with Media Affinity Whitepaper

Document: WP-0010-20150125

This white paper provides a primer for the Media Affinity functionality with the ISE G2 and G3 platforms and ISE Manager. This document covers the configuration of a Media Affinity volume and also reviews the setup within ISE Manager. A Media Affinity use case is also included in this white paper and covers a VMware Horizon View environment, leveraging pin to flash (media affinity) volumes for VMware Horizon View replica disks.

VMware Backup Enabler White Paper

Document: WP-0016-20150728

Although VMware environments offer tremendous flexibility and increased resource utilization, protecting virtual machine data can be complicated, unreliable, and intrusive. The combined power of X-IO technologies provides a solution that enables virtual storage and fast, simple, reliable backups without interrupting operations. Today’s organizations can count on X-IO Software to deliver the storage intelligence that their storage environments need. Read this paper to learn more.

WAN-Optimized Replication White Paper

Document: WP-0014-20160218

This paper discusses how replication has become part of the fabric of IT due to its multiple uses and benefits. However, as IT and business managers know, replicating data can quickly increase bandwidth and storage costs. WAN optimization technologies can help reduce the amount of bandwidth and storage capacity used for replication, enabling cost savings while maintaining application performance. However, in most cases, WAN optimization requires the purchase and installation of expensive hardware. X-IO solutions include built-in advanced data replication technology that is far more WAN-efficient than other types of solutions, providing significant savings in bandwidth, storage capacity, and costs.
