|Dual I/O path protection
||Sustain availability and load balancing in the event of path failures.
||Gain access resiliency, increase data availability, and load balance for performance by working around path HBA and connectivity faults.
||Get synchronous and asynchronous volume mirroring, with consistency groups.
||Protect against site failures through remote mirroring of critical data. For RPO of zero, synchronous mirroring is available for short distances, while asynchronous replication is available for longer distances without slowing local processing speeds.
|Dynamic Disk Pools
||Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) enables dynamic rebalancing of drive-count changes and increased data protection.
||DDP significantly lowers data exposure during drive failure. It reconstructs data much faster while protecting performance. Drive failures or additions become non-events.
|RAID levels 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10
||Multiple RAID levels offer the flexibility to optimize for your workloads—and they can be changed on the fly.
||Optimize for your workload performance. You can even change the RAID group or strip size while a volume stays online.
||Support for T10-PI standard
||Data assurance, based on the ANSI T10-PI standard, offers enterprise-grade data integrity and protects against silent data corruption.
|Proactive Drive Health Monitoring
||Detect issues before a drive fails.
||Proactive Drive Health Monitoring examines drive health and notifies administrators much earlier that a drive is having issues—allowing time for replacement before the drive affects the system.
|Background Media Scans
||Background media scans proactively check drives for media defects and initiate repairs.
||Improve E-Series and EF-Series system reliability and robustness
||Create a point-in-time image of data or a set of related data volumes.
||Snapshot technology and views provide a look into the data at a specific time, forming the basis for RPO, test and development, and other modifiable datasets.
||Create a complete physical copy (clone) of a volume in a storage system.
||The clone volume is a unique entity that can be assigned to any host and used by applications that require a full point-in-time copy of production data (such as backup, application testing or development, information analysis, or data mining) without affecting the performance of the production volume.
||It provides troubleshooting assistance and procedure guidance.
||Recover your system faster in the unlikely event of an issue.
||Achieve automatic serving of high-reference data by up to 5TB of SSD via data-driven caching.
||Data-driven caching accelerates applications while providing low-latency SSD access for highly referenced data.
|SANtricity Storage Manager
||Manage the SANtricity OS and E-Series storage systems and EF-Series all-flash arrays.
Intuitive GUI and task wizards automate functionality, making it easy to set up and operate the E-Series and EF-Series systems. SANtricity Storage Manager also provides access to the detailed configuration for experts wishing to optimize manually.
Enterprise Management Window
|See a combined overview of all E-Series and EF-Series systems, with consolidated host-level administration and alerts, plus access to individual storage system management.
||The easy-to-use view of all storage systems, with consolidated reporting and host management, speeds common high-level storage maintenance tasks. Respond quickly and easily to systems needing attention.
|Array Management Window
||Manage individual storage systems, diagnose issues, and change configurations.
||Configure individual volume group attributes, define hosts and access rights, monitor system health and performance, and view event and performance logs. The Array Management window makes it quick and easy to deliver storage value to your enterprise SAN environment.
||Manage all operations online.
||You can manage your E-Series and EF-Series systems as 'no scheduled downtime' systems. Save yourself the headaches of coordinating service windows while continuing to deliver storage business value.
