  9. 9© 2015 IBM Corporation How the Cleversafe platform works CONTENT TRANSFORMATION Cleversafe software encrypts, slices and applies Information Dispersal Algorithms otherwise known as erasure coding policies to the data. Data Ingest Accesser Software Storage Nodes Site 1 Site 2 Site 3 Physical Distribution Slices are distributed to separate disks and industry standard x86 hardware across geographic locations. Data Retrieval Storage Nodes Reliable Retrieval An operator defined subset of slices is needed to retrieve data bit perfectly in real time. Site 1 Site 2 Site 3 BENEFITS The level of resiliency is fully customizable resulting in a massively reliable and efficient way to store data at scale as opposed to RAID and replication techniques. Accesser Software Slicestor Software
  10. 10© 2015 IBM Corporation Feature superiority 24x7 Operation – No downtime during software upgrades, hardware refreshes, and in the face of disk, node, and site failures. Security - Government grade security with inherent key management. Scalability – Scale performance and/or capacity at any time with no downtime to operations Efficiency – Less raw storage means less power, cooling and floors pace resulting in low TCO Manageability– No RAID sets or replication schemes to manage.
