Products & Services
ProphetStor’s Federator™ SDS Solutions consist of three major components:
Storage Controller: ProphetStor Federator™ is an out-of-band storage orchestrator that virtualizes a heterogeneous storage environment into a well-defined service layer. Key features include advanced storage scheduling algorithms, traffic monitoring, Traffic Modeling Module (TMM), and predictive Elastic Resource Control (ERC).
Storage Hypervisor: ProphetStor Flexvisor™ is a ZFS-based scale-out storage hypervisor that, when used in conjunction with Federator, implements ERC by dynamically adjusting the allocation of CPU, RAM, and flash resources.
Data Services: A suite of modules and extensions, based on the Federator infrastructure, that provide high-value data services such as Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (DR Prophet), data mover, and near-zero-down-time data migration.
