About Avere

The cloud provides the foundation for innovation. Whether it's for building animations and special effects for the next blockbuster movie or discovering new treatments for life-threatening diseases, high-performance storage and the flexibility to store and process data where it makes the most sense for the business is critically important. In February 2018, Avere Systems joined Microsoft Corporation to enable us to drive even more industry-leading innovations that enable the largest, most complex high-performance workloads to run in Microsoft Azure.

Fast Data Access For Hybrid Cloud Infrastructures



Who We Are

Avere Systems was created by file systems experts determined to reinvent storage by changing the way enterprises thought about and bought storage resources. With decades of experience behind the company’s founders, Avere got its start in 2008 with a mission to use fast, flash-based storage in the most efficient, effective manner possible. What the team had discovered was a technology that optimized storage resources and reduced dependencies on sprawling storage installations. Launched as the Avere OS, this advanced file system not only boosted performance within standard, on-premises, network-attached storage systems but also within diverse, hybrid architectures that include cloud provider services and other types of object storage.

Located on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Avere serves many of the world’s top brands in technology, finance, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, and telecommunications as well as data-intensive organizations like healthcare research, higher education research, and government agencies. 


What We Do

Avere helps enterprise IT organizations enable innovation with high-performance storage access and the flexibility to store data where it makes the most sense for the business. We do this with the ongoing development of file system and caching technologies that speed access to compute and storage in hybrid environments. Our products enable drop-in performance that frees IT departments from buying more storage capacity for their data centers to solve performance-based issues and provide an on-ramp to the cloud.



Why We Do It

Storage is the backbone of all IT operations. Every application built relies on access to data to make it useful. Avere is motivated by the accomplishments of our customers making use of fast, efficient access to this data, whether it is building the next jaw-dropping special effects for a blockbuster summer movie or discovering new treatments for life-threatening diseases using genomic research. By optimizing storage performance and facilitating flexibility in where data can be stored, our customers are doing great things in less time than was previously possible.
