Enterprise grade NFS file storage, and robust block storage using iSCSI and NVMeOF
MayaNAS Cloud is a full featured enterprise-grade software defined storage solution that provides high-performance unified file and block services using the cloud native disks and object storages. The disks can be of standard to premium SSD disks from Azure. The object storage can be Azure Blobs , or other object storage from supported cloud providers.
The following enterprise-class features are included:Active-Active HA, Deduplication, Compression, Snapshots, Cross-region replication using incremental snapshots or block-level replication.
MayaNAS is architected to fully utilize the cloud native resources for these performance tiers.
1. For Capacity Optimized LVM Pool the software uses the standard persistent disk and provides Deduplication, Compression and Thin Snapshots with XFS file system. Optionally with bcache it can use Premium SSDs for read/write caching.
2. For high-performance NFS services, MayaNAS uses its own port of heavily optimized open-ZFS for storage pool built with Premium SSDs. In this configuration it will fully maximize the IOPs and bandwidth of Premium SSD to offer. Optionally one can use ephemeral NVMe as large read-caches known as L2ARC. There is no need to configure separate log devices for ZFS, as PremiumSSD can be utilized.
3. For Hybrid storage pool, the ZFS storage pool is comprised of Log device on Premium SSD and uses standard disks or Blobs for data disks.
