Guardian OS 7.7 powers the SnapServer® Network Attached Storage Servers and is optimized to provide business-grade reliability and out-of-the-box integration needed to work with today's business applications and infrastructure. The award-winning GuardianOS has over a decade of proven stability, expertise and innovation you can rely on.
SnapServers attach directly to your network and install in minutes, and are easily deployed without application downtime. You can consolidate multiple systems by creating file- and block-level volumes on a single SnapServer. The DynamicRAID® feature lets you mix and match drives with ease as well as grow and shrink volumes on demand with Thin provisioning while protecting your data.
This flexible, cost effective platform allows you to expand seamlessly as your capacity and performance needs grow. It includes a set of data protection tools such as high performance Snapshots, Snap Encrypted Continuous Replication (Snap ECR™) for disaster recovery and Snap Enterprise Data Replicator (Snap EDR™) for heterogeneous data replication. It also includes SnapSync™ which is a simple, secure enterprise class file sync and share solution that enables unlimited access to content deployed on SnapServer™ or SnapCLOUD™ from any device and from anywhere.

Unified Storage - Freedom of Choice
Consolidate your storage by hosting both block and file level data on your SnapServer NAS system. Utilize common networking protocols for file sharing, collaboration and backup, or host database storage and virtualized servers on SnapServer iSCSI LUNs simultaneously.
DynamicRAID® - Automatic Capacity Expansion with Thin Provisioning
Don't limit yourself to the features of traditional RAID. With the combination of DynamicRAID and SnapServer your protection is automatically optimized for redundancy and capacity without manual intervention. Add or replace SnapServer hard drives at any time to expand existing storage pools and take advantage of drive size mismatches without wasting space.
Dynamic Volumes - Let GuardianOS® Do the Heavy Lifting
Forget about provisioning. Create limitless volumes on your SnapServer and they will automatically share the available space in the disk storage pool; this means that volumes will only occupy as much space as their data requires, leaving space available to other volumes on demand. Storage volumes can also automatically grow and shrink as needed, and administrators can assign optional quotes to control volume sizes across the storage pool.
Advanced Security - Intelligence Matters
The SnapServer can provide local security for small infrastructures or join larger networks that include complex security policies. With full integration into Windows Active Directory domains, UNIX domains, and cross-compatibility for mixed security environments, the SnapServer allows you to maintain consistent permissions for users with multiple system types, with minimal intervention, across your business infrastructure
Management - Make your life easier
With GuardianOS Web Management interface, deployment and set up of the SnapServers is made simple and intuitive. It makes creation of dynamic volumes, high performance Snapshots, Encrypted and heterogeneous replication and other features easy to implement. Command Line Interface (CLI), makes automation of routine tasks straight forward. The SnapStorage Manager makes the management of multiple SnapServers easy.
SnapSync™ - Get Data on-the-Go, Collaborate securely with Centralized IT control
It's time to get rid of your expensive cloud storage provider. SnapSync™ is a simple, secure enterprise class file sync and share solution that enables unlimited access to content on any device, from anywhere, where the data is residing on on-premise SnapServer or SnapCLOUD that is managed by IT and protected against data loss.
Continuous Encrypted Replication (w/ Snap ECR™) - Disaster Recovery solution at no additional cost
Snap to Snap continuous replication of 1:1 and N:1 topology. Replicates changed blocks only and does it securely with military grade over the wire encryption
Replication across Heterogeneous platforms (w/ Snap EDR™) - Across the Hall or Across the Globe
Prepare for disaster recovery with Snap Enterprise Data Replicator (Snap EDR™). With Snap EDR™ you can automatically replicate files between SnapServers, Windows, Linux, UNIX and Macintosh servers. Built for globally distributed businesses, Snap EDR™ will ensure that your files are moved off-site safely and securely.
RDX Integration - Rugged, reliable disk-to-disk backup
SnapServer administrators can take advantage of Overland Storage RDX direct to disc backup. Plug an RDX QuikStor device into the SnapServer USB ports and selectively copy data from disk-to-RDX. Utilize RDX media as a form of backup and offsite disaster recovery. Copy data and remove for remote archiving, or as an easy way to move data between devices.
Backup Support - So many data protection options
Protect your data against system failures and accidental deletions with standard backup solutions using 3rd party backup software. You can also transfer primary data on SnapServer directly to tape for archiving and lone term retention. Another option is to copy directly from SnapServer to RDX QuikStor.
