Did you know?

The N3310, a unified storage platform that is based on ThinkServer and Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 innovations, offers the flexible choice of storage protocols (iSCSI, SMB, CIFS, and NFS) and can provide required performance levels for the most demanding server applications while significantly lowering deployment and support costs.

The N3310 features up to 16 TB of internal storage capacity (raw) in a compact 1U rack form-factor, with the flexible choice of network connectivity options (2-port and 4-port 1 Gb Ethernet with RJ-45 connectors, 2-port 10 Gb Ethernet with SFP+, or RJ-45 connectors).

The N3310 can be scaled up to 316.8 TB of storage with the optional Lenovo ThinkServer SA120 Storage Enclosure units (up to four units supported).

Unlike Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 does not require client access licenses and provides a virtually unlimited number of supported clients for storage sharing purposes.

Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 provides flexible support for Microsoft and ISV anti-virus and backup applications.
 

Key features

The N3310 offers storage-rich capabilities with internal storage and external scale-up storage expansion. It can perform file serving tasks hosting SMB and NFS file shares for Windows, Linux, and Mac based clients, SMB file shares for server applications (SQL over SMB and Hyper-V over SMB), and iSCSI storage targets for the server applications requiring block I/O. Client and server applications can use cost-efficient Ethernet LAN infrastructure (Gigabit Ethernet or 10 GbE or mixed).

Data Deduplication service can be enabled on the N3310 to allow the most efficient use of the storage space (especially for software distribution packages, image repositories, and archives because they are typically characterized by high data redundancy and infrequent changes). Optionally, if the storage server is at the central office and is a part of the distributed environment, more services (such as DFS replication) can be enabled to synchronize the content between the central and remote locations for the purpose of centralized backup operations (from the remote to the central location) and software delivery (from the central to the remote location).

The following figure shows an N3310 unified storage server solution.

With enhanced storage manageability features, the N3310 reduces the time spent on IT administration, helping your business to perform the following tasks:

  • Consolidate file-sharing resources on Windows Storage Server even in mixed, heterogeneous computing environments
  • Speed access to data across your entire network infrastructure while improving control of files and compliance via a single management interface
  • Make the most of simplicity, ease of use, and low-cost scalability to use your organization’s current IT skills to efficiently support a growing user base

 


The N3310 that is running Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 includes the following key features and benefits:

 

 

  • An affordable and reliable unified network-attached and block-level storage solution:
    • Reliable storage servers that are built on the proven Lenovo ThinkServer hardware platform.
    • Drive trays that are common with ThinkServer servers.
    • A common set of ThinkServer memory, storage and network connectivity options.
    • Low-cost software RAID or advanced hardware-based RAID configurations for protecting critical data.
  • A dedicated and optimized file and print server. Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 has all functions unrelated to file serving removed (while keeping essential infrastructure services for easier deployments), which helps increase reliability and lower the overhead on the server's processor.
  • Flexible installation and deployment:
    • Flexible configuration options enable clients to finely tune their storage server hardware to meet cost and performance needs.
    • The storage servers can be configured remotely via Windows Storage Manager, which makes them ideal for branch office, department, and store deployments.
  • Easy integration into your existing IT infrastructures:
    • Integrates easily into Active Directory environments.
    • You can use your existing backup tools and antivirus software on Windows Storage Server to protect your investments.
    • Files can be shared across heterogeneous file system environments and different operating system platforms through the integration of SMB and NFS protocols.
    • Compatible with existing Ethernet infrastructure.
  • Easy to use and manage:
    • Factory-integrated, pre-configured, and delivered to the clients with Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 preinstalled.
    • All storage tools are integrated into a single interface of Windows Server Manager.
    • Centralized administration and unified user experience in managing stand-alone storage servers.
  • Lower total cost of ownership (TCO):
    • Lenovo storage servers are a cost-effective storage consolidation solution in a network environment, which enables centralization of storage and storage management.
    • No extral licenses are required for users, which can help to significantly reduce Client Access License costs.
  • Fast data recovery:
    • Built-in data “Snapshot” technology. Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS) provides enhanced data protection through high-fidelity backups, rapid data restores, and data transport.
    • By using the VSS for SMB File Shares feature, deleted or corrupted files can be restored within minutes, instead of hours.


The N3310 uses Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 operating system, which is based on Windows Server 2012 R2 core technologies and is optimized for providing both block- and file-level storage services to the users and server applications. The following components and capabilities are included in Windows Storage Server 2012 R2:

 

 

  • Storage protocols:

 

  • iSCSI Software Target offers low-cost shared storage for applications that require block-level access to it.
  • Server Message Block (SMB) File Services provide network shares for the Windows-based user and server application environments:
    • Microsoft SQL Server supports placement of log and data files onto an SMB network share (SQL over SMB).
    • Microsoft Hyper-V supports placement of virtual machine files onto an SMB network share (Hyper-V over SMB).
  • Network File System (NFS) File Services provide network shares for the Linux or Mac based user or Linux-based server application environments. VMware vSphere virtual machine files can be placed onto an NFS network share.
  • Availability and performance:
  • Microsoft iSCSI Software Target supports Multipath I/O (MPIO), which allows iSCSI clients to use multiple network paths to a storage server for high availability, fault tolerance, and load balancing purposes.
  • SMB Multichannel allows the use of multiple redundant network paths between application server SMB clients and SMB file shares that are hosted on Windows Storage Servers for better throughput while maintaining network availability.
  • Vendor-independent network teaming allows combining of multiple network interfaces into a single fault-tolerant or load-balancing group for better performance and availability.
  • NTFS in Windows Server 2012 R2 improves availability by performing online corruption scanning, the use of self-healing techniques, and reducing file system repair times.
  • Data management:
  • Data Deduplication can help to significantly improve the efficiency of storage space usage.
  • VSS for SMB file shares allows performing of backup operations by using the snapshots of remote file shares that are supporting SMB-based server applications (for example, SQL over SMB).
  • DFS Replication provides synchronization capabilities across limited bandwidth network connections in the distributed environments.
  • Microsoft BranchCache® optimizes the usage of WAN links by caching the remote data locally based on predefined policies.
