Value to the Enterprise

80% of enterprise data resides in siloed secondary storage systems. These islands of storage create inefficiency, waste and overhead expense. We consolidate silos into a durable, scalable storage fabric, dramatically improving IT productivity and reducing long-term storage operating costs.


  • Scalable distributed file system with no logical limits
  • Unlimited snapshots while providing instant restores from any snapshot
  • Application and VM-consistent backups
  • Multi-site replication
  • Unlimited cloning for provisioning Dev/Test copies
  • File services through NFS, SMB protocols
  • Object services through S3 protocol
  • Built-in Elastic search and MapReduce framework for in-place analytics
  • Interfaces to public cloud services for expansion and long-term retention
