Storage Services

VTrak S3000 hosts a wide range of storage services providing any IT administrator the tools needed to efficiently manage your organization's data. Providing tools to consolidate multiple storage volumes into a single pool and allow storage volumes to be virtualized, VTrak S3000 makes usage of your storage more efficiently and eliminates wasted space. Thin provisioning support in VTrak S3000 prevents initial over provisioning of physical storage allowing for cost and power savings as storage can be added over time as needed. VTrak S3000 can seamlessly migrate your data from old storage to new storage with simple, easy to use data migration services.

Data Protection

Protecting your data has never been more manageable. VTrak S3000 offers point-in-time snapshot capability allowing for recovery of deleted or inconsistent data to a previous point in time. Using VTrak S3000 for synchronous mirroring, a real-time copy of production data and volumes can be created for data protection in the event of a system failure. VTrak S3000 provides asynchronous remote replication that allows portions of data or a full data set to be replicated across an IP network giving IT administrators a powerful tool in their disaster recovery (DR) arsenal.


  • Host Connectivity - 1G iSCSI, 10G iSCSI, 8G FC
  • Storage Expansion Connectivity – 6G SAS, 8G FC
Storage Services & Data Protection Features
  • Snapshot - Space efficient, application aware snapshot agents ensure point-in-time copies with 100% transactional integrity.
  • Mirroring - Synchronous and Asynchronous Mirroring are supported. Mirroring automatically manages real-time copies of data to protect from system failure.
  • Thin Provisioning - Maximize disk utilization while reducing storage cost and power consumption.
  • Replication - Data replication using DeltaScan technology improves network utilization by minimizing the amount of data transferred during replication. This provides granular protection from a site disaster.
  • Data Migration - Enables seamless migration of data from old storage infrastructure to a new VTrak environment
  • HyperCache - HyperCache technology accelerates IO performance for both read and write data, through intelligent disk caching algorithms using high performance media.
