Coraid EtherDrive VSX Storage Virtualizer

Coraid EtherDrive VSX brings network storage virtualization intelligence to your Ethernet Storage Area Network (SAN). With this storage virtualizer you can now centralize and streamline Logical Volume Management (LVM), snapshots, clones, and remote replication across your enterprise—quickly, and easily.

Snapshots and Clones Create read-only snapshots of any logical volume at an exact point in time. Create read/write clones of logical volumes.
Logical Volume Management Build and resize flexible virtual volumes that span multiple storage shelves.
Mirroring and Remote Replication Create simultaneous, exact duplicate versions of a physical volume to a local host server.
No-Single-Point-of-Failure Configuration Create no-single-point-of-failure configurations so data can be synchronously replicated to two separate storage arrays in any location.

Coraid EtherDrive Host Bus Adaptors

The EtherDrive Host Bus Adaptor (HBA) is the low-cost, simple means to turn Ethernet into a gigantic disk array. HBAs translate VMware, Windows, and Linux SCSI/SAS commands for the Coraid EtherDrive SRX media array.

Every additional HBA added to your host improves system performance linearly. Multiple ports allow the use of multiple switches for fail-safe operation, all without needing multipathing configuration on the part of the user. Available in the following configurations:

  • 10GbE BaseT
  • 10GbE SPF+
  • 1GbE Dual Port Base T
