QuantaStor Virtual Storage Appliances are Microsoft Azure-hosted virtual SAN/NAS storage appliances that support all major protocols including iSCSI and NFS/SMB. QuantaStor VSAs provide shared cloud storage that can aggregate and manage Azure storage resources with storage assets from multiple vendors across sites, on-premises, or across global data centers. QuantaStor VSAs can also be combined into a heterogeneous grid of virtual and physical appliances that scale to 64 nodes for increased IT efficiency and agility.
The Pogo Linux Storage Director series of SDS appliances is the ideal building block for creating a hybrid cloud storage solution. By providing many different storage and connectivity options, organizations can take advantage of the cost, performance, and security advantages of having local large-scale storage combined with the benefits of a cloud-based storage solution for archiving critical data or for use as a DR site. By creating a storage grid encompassing on-premise Pogo Storage Director and a QuantaStor VSA hosted in Microsoft Azure, organizations can seamlessly serve storage to both local and cloud applications in a completely integrated environment. This hybrid approach reduces costs, boosts performance, and simplifies security enforcement.
“The Pogo Linux Storage Director appliance series combined with QuantaStor VSAs for Microsoft Azure is a next-generation hybrid cloud solution for scenarios ranging from backup and archive, disaster recovery or any high availability storage need,” said Erik Logan, CEO of Pogo Linux. “Our combined offering is a great opportunity for companies to get the most out of their storage and IT infrastructure, both on-premises and in the Microsoft cloud.”
