The OSA-F60 would provide high performance and density in a 2U form factor with up to 128G of controller memory. The OSA-F60 provides a “high resiliency, no single point of failure” system including hot swap dual storage controllers. Other field replaceable units include disks, PSUs and fans.

SAN Protocols

Designed for high performance storage use cases, the OSA-F60 supports a range of SAN protocols including iSCSI, iSER, Fibre Channel and Infiniband. The OSA-F60, based on MPSTOR’s Orkestra-SAM software, provides a range of volumes services often required in multi-tenancy configurations, including in-line data compression and de-duplication, along with IOPS rate limiting.

Supporting a wide range of connectivity, the OSA-F60 is available in a range of SAN configurations including 8x8G-FC, 4x16G-FC, 4x48G-Ethernet or 4x56G-Infiniband. Ethernet ports can be bonded for increased performance.

The OSA-F60 can be installed quickly and managed easily within a data center, according to MPSTOR, using an automation API or conventional GUI. The Orkestra automation toolkit provides a set of python tools that allow a data center administrator to automate all storage array configuration tasks.

The MPSTOR OSA-F60 high availability dual controller multipath software has been validated with several RHEL and Windows versions for both Fiber channel and iSCSI environments. The Orkestra-SAM software is integrated with the full suite of Orkestra products including the software defined storage Orkestra-SDS and virtual machine management Orkestra-VM.
