DDP SAN Cluster at IBC 2017

September 2017
The Dynamic Drive Pool by Ardis Technologies presents its scale out heterogeneous DDP SAN Cluster with one namespace

At IBC 2017, the Dutch manufacturer Ardis Technologies will present the latest software version of its DDP Ethernet SAN shared storage solutions. With DDP's heterogeneous scale out cluster, different types of DDP nodes can be “Here, There and Elsewhere” across different geographic locations and within one namespace. Desktop clients have parallel data access to the cluster DDP nodes. One DDP node's bandwidth can be up to 6GB/s.

With the Instant Replication feature, a cluster of two DDPs can be used as a real-time mirror, whereby clients write their data simultaneously to both DDPs. File based SSD Caching and Load Balancing is now expanded, so that it can be used across nodes within a DDP Cluster. Storage can be added or removed on the fly on the back end without changes at the front end.

The shared file system is independent from the locations where the media is stored, so media can be moved around without changes in the directory/folder structure and is transparent to operators. Individual DDP SAN Cluster nodes can be distributed over the network across separate physical and geographic locations while remaining within the DDP Cluster.

If necessary, a single DDP server can be removed from a cluster, used as a standalone device elsewhere, and after finishing the job rejoin the cluster with all the new media being available immediately. Both identical and non identical DDPs can be added. Due to parallel data access, bandwidth and capacity scales linear or non-linear, depending on which DDP is added.

The DDP will be exhibited by Ardis Technologies at IBC 2017 Amsterdam, booth 7H15.
