GuardianOS™ for SnapServer NAS

Product Description

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.
