Avere FXT Series Edge Filers

Get an Edge on Your Infrastructure

Storage architects know that 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/CIFS performance scaling while making your data easier to manage.

Edge-Core Architecture

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

FXT Series Models

Edge filers are configured to meet the various needs of the enterprise, balancing fast Flash SSDs with less expensive SAS HDDs to manage “hot” (currently active) and “warm” (soon to be active) data between compute user and storage. DRAM and NVRAM accelerate the read, write and metadata performance.
