Echo Systems Managed Storage
The Enterprise Storage Servers from Echo Systems, Inc deliver the ultimate storage solution for on-site installation and are fully managed remotely by our acclaimed support with 100% hardware replacement. In sizes ranging from 1U through 4U, our Enterprise Storage Server delivers a superior class of SAN/NAS capabilities for organizations of any size.
The only commodity component in our servers is the pricing. Every piece of hardware that goes into our servers is designed for reliability. We use only the best chassis, motherboards, controllers, memory, and enterprise class SAS and SSD drives. You will not find any off-the-shelf hardware in our servers. Every component is thoroughly stress-tested before shipment to you and after installation to make sure you are getting only the best hardware available.
Each server is designed with redundancy of active components in mind. If a power supply, drive, or fan fails during normal operation, you can hot swap them for replacement parts without incurring downtime.
World Class Support
Our managed storage support and maintenance agreement covers 100% of all components. If a drive or power supplies blows out, we send you a replacement next day. If the whole chassis goes up in smoke, we'll send you a new one. Everything is covered for the entire life of the support agreement. Our intelligent hardware and software monitoring can actively respond to events on the system and intervene on your behalf. Our 24/7 hardware and software support for high escalation items coupled with next day hardware replacement takes all hassle out of hardware replacement.
We use a highly tailored enterprise version of ZFS in all of our servers. This industry-proven self-healing copy-on-write filesystem allows us to take advantage of many superior properties which other SAN/NAS offerings cannot match, including:
Each of our servers is designed with performance in mind. Our drive arrays are some of the fastest on the market. We utilize a two-stage cache which serves the most accessed files directrly from DDR3 memory or super fast SSD arrays.
We believe that reputable companies pay attention to their environmental impact. We use only 80 PLUS certified green power supplies and partner with companies who share our commitment to lower our collective footprint on the planet.
Our servers speak all the common file storage protocols, including: iSCSI, NFS, SMB/CIFS, AFS, FTP, RSCYNC, and SCP(SSH). We are fully compatible with all modern operating systems and cloud solutions, including VMWare, Xen, OpenStack, CloudStack, Smart Data Center and similar products. We provide per-LUN metrics and throttling to make it easier to manage the deployment of multiple LUNs to different departments. Detailed introspection into cache and LUN performance is part of our administrative interface, providing you with deep insight into how well your workload is performing.
Each of our standalone servers can be used to seed an infinitely scalable storage pool. Contact us today for pricing for multi-server clustered storage in a unified mountpoint which can be expanded indefinitely to meet any demand over time.
Our geo-replication feature makes disaster recovery a snap. Any of our servers can act as an asynchronous recovery backup for any other server. With periods down to one minute, it does not matter if the servers are in the same rack or worlds apart, your data is always in a cohesive , replicated state in any disaster.
If you do not have another location, backup to Echo Systems for as little as 1 ¢ / GB Month.
