KernSafe Software Defined Storage is true 100% SDS which can manage all disks and make them as pooled with the ability to create arbitrary, dynamic block volumes that can be utilized by any clients. These volumes are allowed to create unlimited and zero-copy snapshots. Storage Pool provides ways for building data in redundancy and scale-up, performance scaled by adding more devices.  Which is designed for high-end storage like All-Flash and of cause support Hybrid (SSD + HDD) disk arrays as well.
KernSafe Software Defined Storage is a own developed storage stack include scheduler, SDS storage pool and high performance optimized memory management.
KernSafe Software Defined Storage support popular transport include: iSCSI, iSER (iSCSI Extension for RDMA) and NVMe over Fabric (NVMF).
