Persistent Public Cloud Storage

 

The revolutionary Block Storage Replication tool. Companies implement software-defined storage (SDS) in order to easily provision and manage data storage, independent of the underlying hardware. LINBIT’s groundbreaking SDS product ties together data availability, performance, and scale, making it perfect for your cloud storage environment.

 

 consists of:

Since the software simply presents a block device, users do not need to use complex, shared file systems. Because we can use a single node with a filesystem on top of a block device, backing disk failure is transparent to the end user.

Providers

As a provider, your clients demand a high performance, low latency cloud environment. You need to minimize CPU utilization to scale appropriately. Your infrastructure must be resilient and cost effective to remain competitive.

Leveraging LINBIT SDS software, you can build your cloud on common off-the-shelf hardware; whether those servers are spinning disk, all-flash, or hybrid. These setups can be hyperconverged or dedicated storage/compute servers. LINBIT’s robust open-source software-based platform enables the deployment of large server clusters configurable to your specific use-case.

 

Enterprise virtualization

From your storage’s point of view, an enterprise virtualization system has the same requirements as a cloud environment. Your storage needs to tolerate hardware failures. LINBIT SDS will provide this resilient storage.

 

Storage for cloud environments

Storage needs to be easy to provision, fully accessible, and as reliable as possible. Ideally, you can achieve this without expensive license fees from storage vendors.

 

Commodity hardware

Utilizing commodity hardware with open-source software, you can turn cloud storage into an affordable, distributed network storage. With LINBIT SDS, and without proprietary license fees, you can create highly available block storage for VMs and/or containers inside your IaaS or PaaS system.
