and maintenance. Compact design maximizes rack space
usage
Ease of Deployment and Recovery
The actiNAS Series are relatively easy to deploy without drastic
reconfigurations to the network for file-level or block-level
access
Flexible and Compliant with Future Technology
The actiNAS Series is designed to meet today and tomorrow’s
demanding open-systems requirements while establishing a
new standard for life cycle longevity with field-replaceable host
interface cards
High Availability

performing and scalable operating system, data management
software and redundancy features
Easy Backup / Archiving Integration
The actiNAS Series offer connectivity support for external tape
unit or tape autoloader via its SAS controller which allows
direct connection to a tape device, autoloader or libraries.
Maximization of Resources
Highly efficient storage utilization makes it possible for
dramatically reducing consumption of raw storage, power,
cooling, and space.
Windows Storage Server 2008?
Advanced Storage Technologies
The amount of data supported
within the organization continues
to grow every year. Regulatory
requirements, archival demands
and data availability push storage
requirements to their limits. As the
datacenter grows, so does power
consumption, physical space
requirements and the need for
improved hardware to handle the massive volume of data.
Administrators need more than just raw storage capacity, but
to implement the storage techniques and strategies that help
them prioritize data and provide a standard of service. Storage
demands will continue to grow and a storage solution is
needed that can grow with the demand. Windows Storage
Server 2008 can enable your organization to optimize your
datacenter storage requirements.
Windows Storage Server 2008
Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2008 is built upon an
optimized release of the reliable and flexible file services of
Windows Server 2008 for better file serving performance.
Microsoft then adds advanced storage technologies such as
file de-duplication and an iSCSI software target for unified fileand block-based storage and packages it for delivery within
storage appliances. Similarly, actidata then offer specialized
hardware and introduce additional software components to
create WSS08-based appliances. Windows-powered storage
appliances give customers new storage capabilities, simplified
deployment and easier management while assuring seamless
synergy in their Windows infrastructure in a cost-effective and
high-performance platform, and is delivered through us.
Built upon Windows Server 2008
Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2008 (WSS08) provides file
services that are built upon the reliable and flexible file services
within Windows Server 2008. WSS08 provides a solid
mid-market to enterprise file serving solution with easy
manageability and powerful file serving features on a mature
base platform and using industry standard hardware. WSS08
is optimized from WS08 for performance in the file serving role,
as well as by the hardware partner from basic server
configurations - but maintains compatibility with other
Windows management tools from Microsoft and third-party
Windows solutions.
Windows Storage Server 2008 extends the basic functionality
of a file server providing advanced technologies including file &
block storage with iSCSI and data deduplication capabilities
with SIS. These extended functionalities are designed to be
easy-to-use and function transparently to the users of the
organizations file infrastructure and require very little
maintenance.
Simplified Deployment & Management
Windows Storage Server 2008 is deployed in an appliance
form-factor which means hardware and software
requirements are pre-configured vastly simplifying the
deployment tasks normally associated with a new file server.
The appliance form-factor also greatly reduces the required
amount of time to deploy removing many management tasks
and minimizing the impact of deployment on the organizations
file infrastructure.
Single Instance Storage (SIS)
Among the additional storage-centric capabilities provided in
Windows Storage Server (WSS) appliances over a traditional
Windows Server is file deduplication through Single Instance
Storage (SIS). SIS delivers built-in file de-duplication to
optimize storage capacity by actively comparing and
eliminating identical files on file sharing volumes. Duplicate files
are transparently replaced with file system links to the single
copy retained in the SIS Common Store -- saving significant
amounts of capacity.
Optimizes Storage Capacity
Single Instance Storage (SIS) provides data deduplication for
Windows File Services. It can significantly impact the amount
storage consumed within an organization. It’s not uncommon
to recover between 25-40% of existing disk space once the
file consolidation has completed. Easy-to-use tools and a
transparent operation means the technology is relatively easy
to use and requires very little maintenance.
Improves File Server Performance
SIS minimizes the amount of physical data allowing for quicker
backups and recoveries. Loads from file caching and file
accesses are reduced and everything operates without users
even being aware that many of their files are centrally stored.
