Enterprises increasingly need to distribute large, mission-critical data sets to multiple shared storage systems and teams in multiple locations. SyncIQ replication software is the industry's only policy-based file replication system designed exclusively for scale-out NAS, combining a rich set of policies for creating and scheduling storage replication jobs with innovative bandwidth throttling and cluster utilization capabilities. Replication policies can be set at the cluster, directory or file levels, and replication jobs can be conveniently scheduled or run on-demand - maximizing network and storage resource efficiency and availability.
SyncIQ delivers extremely fast replication of millions of files and terabytes of data over the WAN and LAN. SyncIQ enables replication jobs to be parallelized and evenly distributed across all sending and all receiving nodes in the Isilon IQ storage clusters. SyncIQ eliminates the inherent performance bottlenecks found in traditional storage replication products which utilize single servers or NAS "heads" to replicate data, enabling SyncIQ to achieve performance levels that are orders of magnitude faster than alternative replication approaches.
Now more than ever, protecting mission-critical business applications has become a necessity. SyncIQ delivers high performance, asynchronous replication of data to address a broad range of recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO), enabling customers to make an optimal tradeoff between infrastructure cost and potential for data loss in the event of a disaster. SyncIQ supports both LAN and WAN networks to replicate over short or long distances, providing protection from both site-specific and regional disasters.
Enterprise IT organizations today face increasingly complex backup environments with costly operations, shrinking backup and restore windows and increasing SLA requirements. Backups to tape are traditionally slow and hard to manage as they grow, which is only compounded by the size and rapid rate of growth of digital content and unstructured data. When combined with Isilon scale-out NAS, SyncIQ delivers a superior disk-to-disk backup and restore solution that delivers unmatched performance and simplicity, enabling IT organizations to reduce backup and restore costs, eliminate complexity and minimize risk.
Online delivery of content
As enterprises want to deliver digital content to more people and more geographies faster, having a solution in place that can ensure that the right data is located in the right location is critical to ensure maximum revenue opportunities and to achieve a superior end-user experience. SyncIQ enables businesses to improve bandwidth utilization, minimize costs, and increase speed of end-user access by distributing content across multiple networks, datacenters, and geographic locations.
