The EFS 40PLUS is a scale-out shared storage node that delivers the benefits of the EditShare file system while providing exceptionally high storage density in a single chassis. Because the EFS 40PLUS is optimized for storage capacity, large EFS storage clusters are possible with a lower number of nodes. The result is a lower cost per terabyte, yet the EFS 40PLUS still has all the robustness and reliability of EFS.

Metadata Controller:

The metadata controller comes as 2U rack mountable chassis and provides high availability to an EFS Workgroup and operates as the traffic management system, controlling and distributing data across the EFS Parallel files system on all nodes, confirming that no single point of failure occurs. A second metadata controller can be added to the primary to provide total redundancy, ensuring that facilities in mission critical environments need never skip a beat. Adding a metadata controller to an EFS workgroup enables a facility to grow up to 5PB – within a single EFS Namespace.
