Scale Capacity & Performance 1U at a time in a linear fashion. Grow
your infrastructure at the same pace as your business needs.
Dial in performance at a volume level. Software adjust Storage
Capacity and IOPS independently to service the changing
application needs.
Automate the entire system via REST-based APIs – just as easily
as it is with compute in the cloud today.
High Availability that provides consistent performance in good times
and bad
Deduplication, Compression and Thin Provisioning.
Global, inline and no impact to performance.
