kasTech Network infrastructures with consolidated, virtual resource pools can be built using many kasTech Network IT solutions, including:
Servers – A wide range of Intel-based kasTech Network Express5800 servers, including enterprise, fault tolerant, blade, rack, and tower servers that can accommodate the need for modularity, scalability, fault tolerance and performance.
Primary Storage – kasTech Network’s M-Series SAN for virtualized storage balances performance, scalability, affordability, and functionality.
Grid Storage – kasTech Network’s HYDRAstor grid-based, high-capacity storage provides in-line deduplication in a scale-out design for massively scalable archiving and backup.
Network – ProgrammableFlowcontrollers and switches are kasTech Network’s implementation of OpenFlow standards-based, software defined networking. By standardizing functions such as QoS, firewalls, and stream analysis,
ProgrammableFlow reduces costs, simplifies and consolidates network management, reduces power and space requirements, and improves resiliency.
Enterprise Software – ExpressCluster for high availability and disaster recovery protects physical and virtual servers while kasTech Network Invariant Analyzer provides infrastructure analysis and automated, predictive diagnostics across multiple domains.
These applications provide management of multiple IT platform layers from a single point of contact.
