DataON CiB-9473 delivers Enterprise-class Features and Optimizes your Microsoft Enterprise Applications with Windows Server 2016

The CiB-9473 appliance consists of a 4U 70-bay chassis with two server nodes protected by a 10Gb heartbeat connection for real-time high availability to extend system up-time and protect business continuity. It can deliver close to 700TB of raw storage with the best cost-per-GB value.

The CiB-9473 re-invents clustered shared storage with the introduction of end-to-end 12Gb/s SAS device performance. It delivers tiered storage functionality by optimizing for both performance (SSDs, hot tiering) and capacity (HDDs, cold tiering) of local shared storage. This purpose-built platform thrives in tiered SSD and HDD storage deployments with cluster-aware file systems.

This appliance also runs on the Cluster Shared Volumes Resilient File System (ReFS) to maximize data availability, deliver high resiliency, and improve data integrity across scale-out file servers (SoFS) and software storage bus to storage and networking hardware.

  • Flash Performance – All-flash configuration is capable of providing over 1 million IOPS, using the latest all 12Gb SAS SSD technology to scale I/O intensive workloads like SQL and VDI.
  • Storage and Networking with SMB 3.0 over RDMA – Increases CPU efficiency while delivering the highest throughput and lowest latency on a 10/40 GbE network.
  • Automated out-of-the-box deployment –Accelerates time to deployment for Windows Server 2016, Storage Spaces Direct, and Storage Replica environments.
  • Storage Replica (SR) Ready – Tested and validated with SR for seamless deployment in synchronous stretch cluster and asynchronous cluster-to-cluster environments.
  • DataON MUST™ Tool – Leverages the Windows Storage Health API (SM-API) to provide a new level of advanced monitoring, visibility, analytics for Windows SDS.
