Heterogeneous DDP cluster
With the new V5 OS, DDPs can be clustered together so that when one system fails, all the data is still available. This technology enables clients and applications to continue their operations without interruption.
All clustered DDPs are able to act as a substitute for the one that failed, ensuring important data is still available. As data replication is carried on in the background, everything remains transparent for the client.
Load balancing across DDPs
DDP V5 OS allows multiple DDPs on the same network to stream (and I/O) data in parallel controlled by one master DDP, which holds the metadata. The master DDP tells all desktops connected to the network where to write, or read the data to and from.
