PowerScale OneFS is the power behind the Dell EMC PowerScale storage systems, Dell Technologies’ industry-leading scale-out NAS platform, which thousands of organizations rely on to address their unstructured data needs. This complete storage strategy aims for simplified management, performance, and flexibility.

PowerScale OneFS 9.1

According to Dell Technologies, it’s estimated that unstructured data (file or object) often accounts for nearly 80% of an organization’s data footprint. That amount of data is expected to grow year-over-year and is increasingly spread across core data centers and clouds, causing significant complexity for customers. Organizations are looking for solutions that provide the performance needed to harness their data to accelerate outcomes.

The OneFS NAS operating system provides enhanced performance with massive scalability to support the most demanding file-based workloads while enabling organizations to reduce data center footprint and optimize storage resources. OneFS software can run on various hardware, handle unstructured data, and deploy anywhere – at the edge, the core, or the cloud.

The new PowerScale OneFS 9.1 offers:

Simplified management

  • PowerScale 9.1 includes a simplified, scalable, and robust CAVA-based antivirus software support, compatible with all of the leading antivirus vendors.
  • Alert configurations of node-level and cluster-wide data is now is configurable with a great deal of granularity to meet business needs.
  • Backups have been significantly enhanced and now include advanced restarting capabilities that provide faster backups and improve RPO and RTO objectives.
  • Increased cluster uptime, which is enabled by faster detection and resolution of node or resource unavailability.

Faster performance

OneFS 9.1 is optimized to provide maximum performance for flexible workloads. CloudPools software has been further optimized to deliver faster throughput and lower latency for seamlessly recalling tiered data from the cloud. Internal testing has also shown that it’s possible to have faster data access for encrypted NFS data for some workloads.

Increased flexibility

OneFS allows multiple PBs of storage to be managed by a single admin. OneFS 9.1 delivers even more features like flexible audit log management and purging to meet security, compliance, and business needs. Also, flexibility in configurable encryption settings of SyncIQ replicated traffic provides fine-grained control to admins.
