Igloo DC Cluster

Boston’s Igloo DC solutions are certified as being DataCore Ready, out of the box, and are based on DataCore's SANsymphony-V software defined storage virtualisation solution. The new Boston Igloo DC systems, based on hardware from leading server manufacturer Supermicro, are configured to deliver high availability and high performance to entry level SMB and enterprise organisations across Europe.

Organisations, large and mid-sized, will benefit from the performance acceleration through self-adaptive caching; automated storage tiering; unified storage to enable SAN and NAS integration; continuous data protection; snapshots; analysis tools; synchronous mirroring; replication; capacity optimization (thin provisioning); resource virtualisation; centralized SAN management, and the ability to integrate easily into existing SAN environments.

Igloo L Series

As digital media and content continues to change our lifestyle, the way we work and our need for increased storage and bandwidth continues to grow at a worrying rate. Storage needs have far exceeded expectations and clients are now looking for reliable storage solutions that offer genuine scalable performance without compromising large bandwidth applications and high performance compute clusters.

Igloo NXStor

The innovative Igloo NXStor SBB is a fully redundant, fault-tolerant, high-availability Storage Cluster "in-a-box".

The Igloo NXStor SBB supports up to 16 x 3.5" hot-swap SAS/SAS2 HDDs or SSDs with the option to expand beyond 16 drives via dual 24Gb external SAS connections. For enhanced read and write performance, the Igloo NXStor SBB can incorporate multiple SSD devices for use as non-volatile read and write cache.

Based on the revolutionary ZFS file system, many previously exotic and proprietary features are now standardised and inherent to the Igloo NXStor range including, multi-parity RAID, data deduplication, unlimited snapshots, copy-on-write data resilience, online volume expansion and many more.

Igloo Syncro Series

At the heart of the Boston Igloo Syncro Series are two RAID-enabled Syncro SC controller cards from LSI, offering the foundation for a redundant server failover cluster with a JBOD for shared storage at the back end. Advanced enterprise storage features are available courtesy of Windows Storage Server 2012, bringing technologies such as deduplication, compression, and snapshots as standard. A Supermicro dual expander SAS disk shelf acts as the shared back end data storage, eliminating the need for an extremely costly shared storage SAN implementation.
