Primary Storage: secure and Italian storage used as a file system and accessible via NFS, SMB and iSCSI

Primary Storage services include a storage space on Enterprise level SAN (Storage Area Network) NetApp with either cache SSD or full SSD, suitable for virtual machines file systems or as shared storage within a private cloud, dedicated server and cluster infrastructure.

There are many advantages to using Primary Storage services:

  • Security: SAN with dual controller, RAID configured disks and Spare parity, Snapshot on running VM.
  • Performance: Primary Storage is suitable for sites/applications with high number of reads/writes per second and is connected to Hosting Solutions' internal network with 20 Gigabit connection per single node.
    In the case of full SDD, the configuration guarantees storage access times even shorter than 0.1 ms.
  • Expandability: Primary Storage volumes, unlike the server's physical HDDs, they can be hot expanded with the server running.
  • Accessibility: multi-protocol accessibility exclusively from Hosting Solutions' private network (e.g. server dedicati, cluster or infrastrutture di cloud privato) via NFS,SMB e iSCSI protocols.

The service includes various storage spaces from 50 GB up to 1 TB, which can be dynamically expanded thanks to special additional services.
