FlashNet: Scalable and Resilient
FlashNet is built around a clustered architecture, which allows virtually infinite scalability of the archive, from the smallest organisations to the largest network operation. SGL FlashNet comprises three base modules, which can be run on a single server to provide cost-efficient archive operations in a compact installation, or can be installed or extended across multiple nodes to form a cluster that provides automatic failover and high levels of I/O (input/output).
SGL FlashNet’s architecture also provides unrivalled resilience: in the event that a node fails, its duties are automatically taken over by other cluster members, without interruption to archive operations and without requirement for manual intervention.
