Resource Monitor via Dashboard and Snmp
In addition to our Netdata Rock-on we have a build in Dashboard for top-level stats.
Rockstor’s dashboard has customizable widgets for storage capacity, network, CPU and memory utilization. SNMP is also supported to monitor Rockstor using other monitoring options. And of course we have a Netdata Rock-on.
Rock-ons (Docker plugins) - 'There's an App for that'
Rockstor has a built in engine to run tailored Docker based applications. There is a focus on easy-of-use and maintain. We call these Rock-ons and they provide many popular media streaming, backup, and cloud storage/service Apps. More Advanced users can also add their own apps of choice.
Fast Online/Live Capacity Scaling - Larger or Smaller
Disks can be added or removed to grow or shrink storage pools while simultaneously serving clients.
Directly from the Web-UI via step-by-step wizards. Similarly, Pool redundancy profiles and Share capacities can be updated without service interruption. Shares and Pools can be thin provisioned and can grow along with capacity need. BTRFS, our linux kernel based filesystem, supports practically unlimited capacity (16 EiB / Pool/Volume).
Instant/Efficient Share and Snapshot Clones
Shares or Snapshots can be instantly cloned into brand new Shares; directly from the Web-UI. The Btrfs (Copy-on-write) features allows clone creation in a instant. Cloning is instantaneous and takes not additional space until there is deviation from the source.
File Sharing for all Platforms
Rockstor supports all popular file sharing protocols including Samba, NFS, and SFTP. Samba (SMB) is excellent and the recommended protocol for desktop/laptop and Mac devices, with special Time Machine backup capability. In addition to these protocols, mobile devices have access using Rock-ons. For more advanced scenarios, NFS and SFTP are also supported.
