Avere’s vFXT NAS solution is easy to install and manage, provides multi-protocol file access (including NFS and SMB), and leverages its cluster architecture to deliver high availability, scalable performance and capacity. In a matter of minutes, thousands of Azure compute instances can be deployed on-demand to crunch data with low latency and no data migration. Businesses can tap into hyper-converged infrastructure of Azure with ease, without breaking the bank.

When demand for compute grows unevenly, cloud bursting to the Azure Compute Cloud provides a flexible, quick, low-latency solution that allows you to quickly offset peaks and take advantage of economical processing times. The Avere vFXT bridges on-premises NAS and cloud computing, caching the hottest data in the compute cloud and returning data back to on-premises storage automatically as it cools.
