Managed Storage

eHosting DataFort’s Managed Storage Services allow clients to store, manage and maintain data dynamically to keep up with the business requirements without worrying about performance degradation. The service ensures architectural compliances with no CAPEX and ensures scalability of the solution with the surging storage requirements.

Storage Area Networks (SAN) will give your business the best of both storage and network technologies. It provides high performance and high availability by virtue of its fully redundant architecture.

eHDF offers 3 Key Storage Area Network (SAN) Services:

Server SAN Connectivity

Allows customers to connect their servers to shared SAN that gives optimal performance for databases and cluster servers. Enterprises can avail high availability SAN services with guaranteed Service Level Agreements (SLAs) without investing on expensive SAN infrastructure themselves

SAN Storage

eHosting DataFort uses high performance disks (i.e. Fiber, SAS, SATA etc) with various criteria (RAID 0/1/10/5) to fulfil storage requirements for the hosted infrastructure

Multipathing

Automatically tunes your SAN and selects alternate paths for your data if necessary. Residing on the server, Multipathing enhances SAN performance and application availability. It also integrates multiple-path I / O capabilities, automatic load balancing, and path failover functions for complete path management

SAN Management

eHDF’s SAN Management solution delivers a robust, cost-effective, easy-to-use SAN storage solution for small and medium businesses. We help you organize the connections, storage elements and computer systems in SAN storage so that it is quick and efficient to enable greater flexibility within your IT infrastructure.

Our service looks after:

  • Initialization of Storage
  • SAN Switch configuration and Zoning
  • Creation of Raid groups
  • Creating LUNs and provisioning to servers

Snap & Clone Services

eHDF’s Snap & Clone services helps customers against data loss and protects databases by taking a snap shot at a storage level, multiple times a day. Availability of data for mission critical applications is of paramount importance to enterprises and even a few minutes of data un-availability can have a significant impact on business.

Generally, all IT departments employ HW infrastructure and clustered databases to increase infrastructure availability and depend on backup for data protection. However, this method is redundant and time consuming. The risk of data loss exists even in a BAU situation, as data loss can happen due to data corruption, manual errors in batch processing or while updating or editing data.

eHDF’s Snap & Clone service protects databases such as Exchange, SQL and Oracle, by taking a snap shot of the database, to address the RTO & RPO requirements. This eliminates the requirement to fetch tapes, achieving data recovery in a matter of minutes. In addition to protecting data, EHDF’s Snap & Clone services also allows its customers to take a copy of the production database and present it to a Dev server or a UAT server for testing new codes, patches, etc.

eHDF’s Snap & Clone Services include:

  • Configure Snap & Clone for applicable databases
  • 24/7 monitoring of scheduled Jobs
  • Take corrective actions for any failed jobs
  • Restore database to production or alternate servers upon request
