The BlueArc Mercury™ Server is a next generation network storage platform that consolidates capacity across multiple applications and simplifies storage management for businesses with mid-range storage requirements—without compromising performance and scalability. The Mercury platform deploys BlueArc's SiliconFS file system, and its open architecture excels across a variety of application environments, including general purpose file systems, database, messaging and online fixed content. Mercury provides for an optimized storage solution that:
- Consolidates application storage requirements, leveraging advanced file system capabilities and virtualization to reduce the TCO of storage infrastructures
- Enables the highest performance and scalability of any product in its class through a hardware accelerated file system
- Simplifies management of large, dynamic data sets with Intelligent Tiered Storage to reduce the cost of keeping more data online
- Supports best-in-class storage devices and complementary third-party technologies through an integrated Storage Ecosystem to eliminate storage silos
Using Mercury, organizations can replace a number of dedicated legacy systems with far fewer Mercury systems, supporting multiple applications and a larger number of concurrent users. As a result, they can eliminate isolated storage silos, reduce infrastructure and energy costs, and simplify management—reducing overall total cost of ownership.
