SnapServer DX is the first data storage that you don’t have to provision. At the core of this revolution is DynamicRAID, a standards-based technology that gives you the ability to automatically expand storage pools and storage volumes independently, optimize your data protection levels and increase capacity with zero downtime. DynamicRAID provides the flexibility you need to manage your storage infrastructure without manual intervention, so that your business can grow without interruption. SnapServer DX is the simplest unified NAS and iSCSI SAN storage for modern business applications – from virtualized server and Microsoft Exchange environments to backup and storage consolidation. The SnapServer DX2 is a high performance, scalable NAS server; and the first storage system in its space that you do not have to provision. With DynamicRAID, hard drives can be added or replaced at any time to grow existing storage pools. Volumes grow automatically as drives are added, simplifying the management and reducing the time required to adapt to changing storage requirements. span>

With DynamicRAID, SnapServer DX RAID arrays are optimized and maintained automatically as drives are added, giving you the best redundancy and capacities available in the market. Easily add drives of larger capacities and integrate them within existing storage pools without sacrificing valuable new space. The DynamicRAID features apply equally to both file sharing and iSCSI volumes created on the SnapServer, making it ideal for both file level and block level access. With Dynamic Volumes improve storage utilization efficiency by making unallocated space available on demand for other applications. Volumes can be resized dynamically at any time, or set without limits. Lower your cost overhead by distributing all volumes across the available storage pool and adapt quickly to changing needs of your storage environment.  This 2U 12-bay SnapServer DX2 storage array supports up to 12 SATA or SAS hard drives and integrates out of the box with Windows, Linux, UNIX and Macintosh environments. Consolidate multiple servers into the SnapServer using the data import tool, or host virtual servers and database applications utilizing the iSCSI SAN feature. The DX2 supports Microsoft VSS/VDS integration to simplify management and ensure application consistent snapshots. For data protection, the DX2 has the ability to replicate to one or multiple SnapServers, take snapshots for point-in-time recovery, and perform backups to disk, VTL, or tape.


Limitless volume creation in seconds with a few clicks of the mouse
Capacity is easily added to volumes without business disruption or downtime
Volumes can shrink and grow independently – no volume migration
All the benefits of thin provisioning without risk of data loss when real capacity no longer exists
Reduce acquisition costs & manage growth through “just-in-time” storage acquisition
Improve – even double – storage utilization
