Bespoke Storage Solutions for every Workload
Scan provides a comprehensive range of external storage and data management solutions, some designed from the ground up and optimised for bulk storage, archiving purposes or high performance computing; others provided by our partners to include feature rich functionality including deduplication, snapshotting, dynamic file provisioning and cloud integration. The Scan IT team can advise on the best possible storage solution for your needs - ensuring reliability, scalability and integrity of your data.
Expansion / Archive
JBOD or NAS device are two of the simplest ways to increase storage capacity. By either connecting directly to a server or adding onto the network, additional storage can swiftly be realised for organisations of all sizes - from simple desktop NAS offerings to rack mounted scalable solutions.
For expansion of GPU-accelerated servers, high performance storage systems are needed. Utilising all-flash technology, in the shape of NVMe SSDs to deliver maximum performance with minimal latency, these devices offer scalable options when speed is of the essence.
Larger organisations will have evolved vast storage requirements, but typically only a small proportion is needed on a day-to-day basis. Complete data management solutions allow tiering of your data and offer the ability to dynamically provision it into NVMe SSD for fast access, SSD for regular use, or HDD for archive storage - either on premise or in the cloud.
3XS Storage Solutions
The 3XS Storage philosophy encompasses specification - to ensure you are able to tailor your storage to the applications you require guaranteeing optimal performance; service - to provide a one-stop-shop for all your storage needs; and satisfaction - we are proud to say a large proportion of our storage customers return for upgrades and expansion.
Based on the award-winning hardware and software platforms of Synology and QNAP NAS, 3XS systems can provide either desktop or rackmount configurations to suit every budget and business. We are also able to specify the drives and RAID levels that best suit your applications too - even if that means two arrays in a single chassis
JBOD & RAID Solutions
Each JBOD & RAID appliance is professionally built in Scans state of the art 3XS Lab, and each system undergoes an 8-stage build process including a 24-hour burn test and 88-point QC check. Storage servers can be configured with either single or dual CPU options, SSD or HDD including M.2 slots, NVMe bays for fast caching and dozens of hot-swap bays for huge scalability.
Dell-EMC Storage Solutions
Dell PowerScale scale-out storage solutions are designed for enterprises that want to manage their data, not their storage. The storage systems are powerful yet simple to install, manage, and scale to virtually any size. The storage solutions that can be provided by Scan IT includes a choice of all-flash, hybrid or archive nodes to meet the most demanding business needs.
Dell EMC Isilon scale-out data storage solutions are powerful, yet simple to scale and manage, no matter how large your unstructured data environment becomes. Unlike traditional storage, Isilon solutions are flexible, efficient and stay simple regardless of how much storage capacity and performance is required, or how your business needs change. Isilon integrates easily with a choice of cloud services and, with built-in data analytics support, allows you to unlock data capital to accelerate the digital transformation of your business.LEARN MORE
NetApp Storage Solutions
NetApp provides data management for high performance systems for when only highly-available, scalable and resilient storage solutions will do. The range includes the EF-series and AFF-series appliances each delivering cutting edge capabilities and functionality.
The all-flash range of NetApp EF devices, offer scalable storage platforms capable of 100Gb InfiniBand, or 100Gb NVMe over InfiniBand connectivity and now includes the an all-NVMe platform too which can accelerate access to your data so you can derive value from it faster. The NVMe model doubles the performance of the SAS all-flash EF arrays to deliver the most powerful performance, smart value, and trusted simplicity in dense, 2U enterprise packaging to derive faster, more actionable results.
NetApp AFF-series systems support end-to-end flash technologies, from NVMe-attached SSDs to front-end NVMe over Fibre Channel (NVMe/FC) host connectivity. These systems deliver the industry’s lowest latency for an enterprise all-flash array, making them a superior choice for driving the most demanding workloads and applications. With a simple software upgrade to the modern NVMe/FC SAN infrastructure, you can drive more workloads with faster response times, without disruption or data migration
