FXT Edge Filers Optimize NAS and Enable Cloud Storage

FXT Edge Filers for Cloud-Enablement and Storage Optimization

Get an Edge of Your Infrastructure

Adding capacity to solve performance issues is an expensive solution that doesn’t always get the job done. Avere FXT Edge filers give you the edge, providing unlimited NFS and SMB performance scaling while making your data easier to manage, both in the data enter and in the cloud.


Edge-Core Architecture

When you add an Avere Edge filer cluster, you separate performance from capacity. The Edge filer sites in front of your “core” network-attached storage (NAS) or cloud storage, closest to the users of the data. The cluster optimizes response time to users and enables centralized storage for cost savings and simplified management.

Avere FXT Edge filers enable hybrid cloud and optimize NAS performance with most popular object and NAS core filers.
