LaScala Disto

LaScala Disto is an add-on component to LaScala Volume Manager that enables customers to remotely manage the volume structure for their entire SAN. It also provides volume and mount point scalability on top of existing LUNs, and support for Windows Volume Management (LDM) volumes.

LaScala Disto can be installed remotely on a laptop or server accessing the SAN through an Ethernet network or VPN, or locally on any server on the SAN. Administrators can use LaScala Disto to log into any domain or workgroup on the network, and then manage both volume structure and server access profiles to the storage for all servers connected to the SAN. Administrators use an intuitive WMI-based graphical interface to manage volumes.

LaScala Disto supports and manages all standard LaScala volume management functionality for SAN volumes. LaScala Disto brings simplicity and user friendliness to the SAN management by allowing users to provision volumes and assign them to user accounts on the fly using native Windows security (ACL). LaScala maintains consistent drive letter assignment across the SAN, and supports both NTFS and Sanbolic’s Melio clustered file system. The interface is intuitive to any Administrator familiar with Windows, thus minimizing the learning curve.

  • Accessible from any server in the cluster or from a remote terminal over VPN.
  • Entire disk structure for each server can be seen, including local
    LDM disks.
  • All operations are available for LaScala disks
  • Support for volume configuration for shared data application which use Melio FS, as well as ability to manage their uniquely assigned non-shared application volumes for Exchange, SQL and other single instance applications.
  • Support FC, iSCSI and SCSI connectivity, users can flexibly match connectivity with cost and performance requirements
