Information regarding to the software packages of the TopRAID M-series:
Storage Manager: Server application for centralized management and monitoring of multiple TopRAID systems.
Storage Manager Express: Graphical user interface (Java GUI) for Windows and Linux to configure and monitor a single TopRAID system.
Storage ControlCommand: The Command Line Interface (CLI) allows extensive adjustment and scripting possibilities, e.g. for replication or backup jobs.
I/O Load Manager: Allows a performance limitation of logical drives for QoS (Quality of Service).
VirtualCachePartitioning: Allows partitioning the system cache into several segments, which can be assigned to several logical drives.
PerforOptimizer: Block-based automatic data allocation in the optimal storage tier (SSD/SAS/NL-SAS).
PerforCache: Level 2 read and write cache to support the TopRAID systems with multiple or repeated access. The "Persistent Write" function allows mirroring the controller cache onto SSDs if the controller fails. This feature ensures continued high write rates in "Degraded Mode".
VolumeProtect: Allows the definition of general ortime-limited read/write user access rights for individual volumes.
SecureEraser: Feature for safe and permanent data deletion (National Industrial Security Program "NISP" DoD 5220.22-M9).
Performance Monitor: Module for detailed real-time monitoring and analysis of the TopRAID systems´ performance. Background measurement of thresholds and alarms in case of thresholds are exceeded support the administrator in controlling resources.
Perfomance Navigator: Additional module for easy performance analysis using graphical utilities.
Analyzer für vCenter Operations: The interface transmits performance data directly and easily to the VMware vCenter Operations Manager.
DynamicDataReplication: Enables snapshots and replication of volumes within a TopRAID system via Storage ControlCommand without interrupting the running application.
DynamicDataReplication Express: Enables snapshots and replication of volumes within a TopRAID systems without Storage ControlCommand. Running applications have to be interrupted.
RemoteDataReplication: Enables snapshots and replication of volumes over a larger distance to a second TopRAID system via Storage ControlCommand.
ReplicationControl: Provides a consistent snapshot of a Microsoft SQL database or a file system during regular operation.
VMware vCenter Plug-in: This module enables assigning vSphere clients to the logical drives directly in VMware vCenter.
VMware VASA Provider: Delivers information about all TopRAID storages in the storage network to the VMware "vStorage API for Storage Awareness".
Replication Adapter: The VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) interface supports the disaster recovery operations of VMware.
OpenStack: Enables the integration of TopRAID block storages into an OpenStack environment.
