DynamicRAID
Software-Defined Storage Services

With DynamicRAID, remove the need to be concerned with storage provisioning. Install a SnapServer with any amount of initial storage and simply add more capacity over time by adding or replacing drives. All SnapServer hard drives contribute to an easy to manage storage pool that can be allocated into volumes for different departments, users or applications. The SnapServer volumes reside in the storage pool and share the amount of available storage, which eliminates the need to set volume limits or monitor volume capacities. DynamicRAID gives a truly provisioning-free storage administration experience.

Benefits:

Let SnapServer optimize your data protection and capacity with DynamicRAID. Select from single or dual parity during SnapServer configuration and simply add as much storage as you need. Pay as you go by adding drives at any time to expand available storage. New drives will be integrated into existing DynamicRAID arrays and be near instantly available.  Take advantage of larger drives when they become available by replacing smaller drives.

Why thinly provision, when you can avoid provisioning altogether with the SnapServer DX and DynamicRAID.  DynamicRAID removes the association between storage volumes and hard drives. All SnapServer drives are aggregated together to create a large storage pool on which the volumes reside. Each volume can grow and shrink at will and have no capacity limits. When volume capacities reach the storage pool capacity, administrators can simply add new drives to empty slots or replace small drives with larger ones and storage volumes will grow automatically.
