The patent, the first issued to StoneFly, is for technology developed by engineers at StoneFly's development center in San Diego. This invention decreases latency and eliminates I/O bottlenecks, allowing communications to be classified into data or command "packets" for more efficient internal routing. The StoneFly innovation offers a scalable way to process communication requests, taking full advantage of the available system or network bandwidth.
StoneFly's storage virtualization engine resides at the core of StoneFly StoneFusion, an IP-based, block-level provisioning appliance that centralizes storage management, control and monitoring of logical storage volumes. StoneFusion 6.0 provides enhanced VMware and Xen support for fast integration of networked storage with virtual servers, and also includes StoneFly Reflection™ for local and campus mirroring, and StoneFly Snapshot™ for fast, efficient data recovery. StoneFusion is integrated into all StoneFly IP SANs.
