A Cluster in a Box (CiB) dual-node cluster server storage platform is made up of two individual server nodes located side-by-side within a single enclosure along with a shared storage pool of hybrid storage drives which are available for auto-tiering or flash-based auto-caching. Should one of the two cluster nodes fail, the system will failover automatically to the other node thus minimizing unplanned downtime and service disruption. The CiB also includes internal shared storage space—12 drives for the DNS-9220 and 70 drives for the DNS-9470—which can be expanded upon with additional external storage JBODs.
The DataON Storage DNS-9220 CiB is a hardware platform purpose-built to deliver High Availability (HA) to remote branch of a limited IT budget in a 12 bay 2U chassis.
The DataON DNS-9470 delivers an extreme high-capacity shared storage solution that fuses the density of a 70-bay JBOD with the performance and uptime security of a dual server node failover cluster into a single 4U enclosure.
