Starboard Storage Systems Overview
Starboard Storage Systems is an innovator focused on bringing disruptive new storage technology to market. Our passion is exploiting flash-based storage technologies along with intelligent caching algoritms to automate data management and enable storage to adapt to business needs in real time. Storage has been too complex, too inflexible and too expensive for too long.
Starboard Storage products are built upon pattented innovation. We surveyed the industry and realized there was a need for a disruptive storage solution that provided innovation built around Solid State technology and improved upon the storage management and operational paradigms found in both traditional block and file storage systems and in opensource projects like ZFS. The Starboard OS is a block based storage OS that also delivers file services. It features a single storage pool (an internal cloud) that can consist of multiple storage classes and removes the complexity of traditional RAID groups while improving availability. The hybrid Multiprotocol Accelerated Storage (MAST)TM architecture is also powered by innovative solid state caching algoritms enabling our systems to deliver the performance of solid state with the cost profile of hard disk systems.
The Starboard OS runs on industry standard hardware architectures enabling Software Defined Storage to be created and delivered that can capitalize on industry innovation rapidly. Our multiprotocol support with Fibre Channel, iSCSI, CIFS and NFS ensures that the Starboard OS can address 85% of storage market needs.
The SolutionStarboard Storage AC-Series Systems helps midsize enterprises simplify data management by consolidating their storage.
Starboard’s multi-protocol support, innovative Dynamic Storage Pool™ and SSD Accelerator Tier™ enable Starboard to deliver innovative Storage systems for the consolidation of mixed workloads with predictable high-performance. Starboard Storage Systems eliminate silos of costly and complex NAS and SAN storage. We provide customers with easy-to-manage, high-performing and affordable flash-enabled storage for file, block and virtualized workloads.
