Storage Optimization and Disaster Recovery Protection Provider StoneFly Launches New StoneFusion Version
May 9, 2019
Storage optimization and disaster recovery protection provider StoneFly, Inc. (StoneFly) has announced the launch of a new version of its StoneFusion solution. A subsidiary of Dynamic Network Factory, Inc. (DNF), StoneFly is a pioneer of iSCSI storage protocol virtual storage appliances. With headquarters in Hayward, California, United States, the company was established in 2000. Its vision is to provide “simple and affordable storage optimization and disaster recovery protection through IP storage area network (IP SAN) solutions”. The most recent version of StoneFusion is designed with Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in mind.
The software-defined StoneFusion MSP edition storage solution is an enterprise-level Storage-as-a-Service (SaaS) option that allows users to “configure and dedicate storage resources for different departments and branch offices”. It facilitates a range of enterprise data services including “image-based snapshots, synchronous and asynchronous replication, encryption, deduplication, thin provisioning, erasure coding, and more”. Being software-defined, the solution can easily be dynamically scaled to distribute dedicated storage.
StoneFusion’s simple storage and management provisioning reduces CapEx and OpEx, making it at least ten times more cost effective than some other solutions. “MSPs and organizations now can create dedicated, fully-provisioned storage resources for users, such as NAS, SAN and object, with full data services on-demand with StoneFly StoneFusion MSP,” explained StoneFly’s Director of Technical Sales, John Harris.
