Metropolis Server Storage Workstations VTR

Metropolis Multi CPU Routing (MCR) is an simple shared disk and GVSAN (storage area network) configurations of up to 8 gigabit can allow users on your network a direct "pipeline" connection to the Metropolis MCR; without the necessity for a multitude of expensive switch and routers. Users appear as network device(as an independent zone or grouped by department) just like output devices and storage volumes; and each pipeline can be easily reassigned or truncated, for greater throughput. Cascading and multi-directional application failover is supported and application services can also be manually migrated to alternative servers for maintenance purposes. A Java-based management GUI provides a single point of administration for multiple Metropolis MCR server. Metropolis MCR provides a comprehensive availability management solution designed to minimize both planned and unplanned down time.

On-line storage management tools such as Metropolis Volume Manager and File System provide various data availability options as well as allowing common administrative tasks to be performed without shutting off client access to the data.

The following are Metropolis 2000 Series of the package product:

MCR   10GB  
Starnet   Starenet  

Metropolis Data Replication can replicate data between multiple nodes and multiple sites to support disaster recovery and replicated application environments.

Implementing cluster or availability management solutions is done with a single goal in mind: to reduce the impact of downtime on business operations. To maximize availability, a comprehensive approach that addresses potential failures and potential administrative causes of downtime should be utilized. GVS provides an end-to-end storage management solution that protects availability from the point of data creation, through storage and use, to backup and offsite archiving. Integration points (with the Metropolis Cluster Server) all along this "data life cycle" for all of GVS' Metropolis family of products.
