About the storage cluster

The storage cluster provides the most efficient usage of the hardware with erasure coding, integrated SSD caching, automatic load balancing, and RDMA/InfiniBand support. The cluster space can be used for:

  • iSCSI block storage (hot data and virtual machines)
  • S3 object storage (protected with geo-replication or cross-region replication between datacenters)
  • File storage (NFS)

In addition, Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure is integrated with Acronis Cyber Protection solutions for storing backups in the cluster, sending them to cloud services (like Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and AWS S3), or storing them on NAS via the NFS protocol. Geo-replication is available for Backup Gateways set up on different storage backends: a local storage cluster, NFS share, or public cloud.

Data storage policies can be customized to meet various use cases: each data volume can have a specific redundancy mode, storage tier, and failure domain. Moreover, the data can be encrypted with the AES-256 standard.
