Storage Server Advantages

Performance

Optimized servers with up to 216 TB disk space, to give you the best storage-price ratio. SATA, SSD and NVMe disks available as an option for FS-MAX servers (add up to 36 disks to your server).

RAM ECC (Error Correcting Code). The ECC code prevents your data from being corrupted, guaranteeing stability and security. Available for all series.

Hot swapping: the ability to change disks without turning off the server

Hot swapping allows you to replace a defective disk or remove one from the server without causing any interruptions in the service. The feature is quite important for a high-availability infrastructure. Hot swapping can be performed on our FS-48T, FS-72T and FS-MAX servers.

vRack: the BULLTEN private network included

Along with its high storage capacity, the series uses the BULLTEN private network (vRack) by default. With vRack, you can connect your BULLTEN products to one another (dedicated servers, VPS, Public Cloud instances) via a secure network, whether they are based in the same data center or various BULLTEN data centres across the globe.

Uses for a storage server

Backup server

Designed to store large volumes of data, the servers in this series are ideal as backup storage spaces. Create secure backups of your operating systems or other files.

Multimedia storage

For projects that require many files to be readily available (images, videos, etc.), our servers have 500 Mbit/s guaranteed bandwidth, which is perfect for video streaming and file sharing.

High-volume database storage

Our storage servers can host up to 216 TB of data. You can use your server to host databases, or store SQL backups.

Backup methods

Data backup:

It involves creating a copy of the data that you would like to back up, and storing it separately from where your data is hosted on the server. Sometimes the data is stored in an independent folder, but located on the same disk. An important thing to note here is that the backup must be stored separately from the space where your data is originally stored in. This way, your data will be secured from any incidents that could result in data loss or corruption.

Differential backup:

Based on a full data backup, a differential backup creates a backup containing the data that has been created or modified after the full backup. Each differential backup compiles the modifications integrated into the previous backup, and also includes the new modifications. As a result, this requires more storage space than an incremental backup, but requires less processing time if a full restore of archived files needs to be carried out.

Incremental backup:

Incremental backup is an option that might interest you if you are looking to save storage space. Incremental backup is launched on D+1 (D = day) after a full data backup is carried out. On each backup, the data that has been modified, as well as any new data, is incremented in comparison to D-1. However, a full backup requires more time to restore than a differential backup, as each backup that has been incremented must be re-copied onto the disk.
