Water Panther Expanse delivers highly available and qualified expansive storage solutions. These enterprise data center hard disk drives and eSSD options are validated for storage-area-network (SAN) storage servers, hyper-converged virtualized SAN appliances, and hybrid SAN clusters with software defined storage management. Managed service providers and value-added resellers alike can streamline storage expansion with various encryption, sector format, endurance, and capacity levels. The Expanse series mitigates hardware bottlenecks and lowers software overhead through end-to-end data protection from using advanced onboard ECC algorithms. All Expanse drives further preserve data integrity by using non-volatile write cache flushing mechanisms which enable power-loss data protection in cases such as kernel errors and unexpected cold reboots. Expand your horizons and take data to new heights with the Water Panther Expanse series.
Water Panther Expanse drives deliver highly-available and validated expansive storage solutions and is qualified for storage-area-network (SAN) storage servers, virtualized SAN clusters, and hyper-converged hybrid SAN systems. Scale-up existing workloads with better caching and overall performance or scale-out with an array of servers for better throughput and I/O distribution.
SAN systems require highly available storage hardware in terms of redundancy, performance, and data integrity. With dual-port options, redundant storage arrays are made possible at the hardware level. Expand data to new heights with drive options that are compatible with existing infrastructure. Scale storage management with enterprise class components and technology.
The Expanse series mitigates hardware bottlenecks and lowers software overhead through end-to-end data protection. Expanse series drives yield advanced error-correcting code (ECC) which validates and resolves data discrepancies and faults. Expanse drives additionally feature non-volatile write cache protection mechanisms in case of power loss. Circumvent data corruption and data integrity tasks at the hardware level for highly scalable storage configurations.
