Challenges

  • For 24 × 7 running workloads, neither stability and performance should be absent

    Financial institutions and companies keep many systems up and running 24 x 7 to provide services over the Internet. No surprise, stability and high-availability are primary concerns. These open systems must also be scalable and powerful enough to handle enormous concurrent requests at any given moment. Being stable and fast at the same is no doubt a huge challenge.

  • Urgency for efficient data protection

    A solid data protection solution can effectively reduce the risks and losses brought by unexpected disasters. For certain financial services, there are also compliance and regulatory requirements on disaster recovery systems that must be met.

    The disaster recovery system must ensure the data is synchronized so that businesses can fail over to backup sites at any time and keep running. Traditional disaster recovery solutions are quite complex. There are software/hardware compatibility issues to work out, not to mention the line leasing and device costs.

  • Ensuring a secure and efficient environment for R & D

    Besides the production systems, medium and large financial companies also challenged to support their large R&D teams with a high-performance, scalable environment that can secure intellectual properties and sensitive data.

    SMTX OS features a fully distributed architecture with no single point of failure. Its self-healing and high availability provide a strong guarantee for 24 x 7 systems.

    By fully exploiting hardware performance and the use of intelligent I/O acceleration, SMTX OS can run both latency-sensitive transactional workloads and bandwidth-intensive analytical workloads with excellent performance. The scale-out architecture future-proofs the IT infrastructure against the pressure of continuous business growth.

    SmartX HCI products have proven and trustworthy stability and performance, as is testified in banking, insurance, securities, funds, futures, Internet finance and many other financial segments.

  • Simplified management unlocks tremendous power for business innovation.

    • Users no longer have to decide which RAID mode offers better performance, no need to pay attention to complex storage networking and cabling, no need to worry about large amounts of data and system migration after scaling.
    • All compatible x86 hardware can be managed through a unified console. A heterogeneous environment is managed with ease and efficiency.
    • Resources are fully pooled for unified planning and deployment. Resource planning is more informed and easier, without creating silos.
  • Secure and efficient development on virtual desktops

    SMTX OS features a fully distributed architecture with no single point of failure. Its self-healing and high availability provide a strong guarantee for 24 x 7 systems.

    All compatible x86 hardware can be managed through a unified console. A heterogeneous environment is managed with ease and efficiency.

  • Boosting agile development

    SmartX HCI products can provide persistent storage to Kubernetes, helping users to quickly set up DevOps environments. A better R&D and testing experience combined with improved development processes and efficiencies will no doubt shorten business release cycles in order to meet the challenges brought by highly intensive development and iterative tasks.

  • Effective homegrown data protection solution

    The SMTX OS MetroX (active-active) feature allows cross-site clustering and supports cross-site HA functionality. Real-time data synchronization between the two sites enables deployment of cross-site Oracle RAC database clusters. When any of the sites fails, the business can seamlessly fail over to the standby site and continue running.

    SMTX OS backup feature supports data backups between multiple remote sites and allows fast recovery of VMs at any site. The backup feature uses a variety of means to shorten the backup time and reduce the bandwidth used for backup.

    The MetroX and backup services are SMTX OS native services. Users can build  a simple, effective and verifiable disaster recovery system without any additional hardware or any third-party software. The complexity of DR is greatly reduced, and the risks within acceptable limits when unexpected failures or accidents occur.
