The Avere vFXT is an enterprise-scale clustered file system built for the cloud.

Cloud Bursting to Microsoft Azure

Avere Virtual FXT (vFXT) Edge filers act as network-attached storage (NAS) within Microsoft Azure, freeing your data to remain on-premises, while giving you complete functionality. The Avere vFXT works to:

  • Connect your on-premises storage to Microsoft Azure compute services
  • Support for NFS, SMB and multi-protocol workloads
  • Allows you to offset peaks in compute demand with Microsoft’s pay-as-you-go services without moving large data sets from existing storage
  • Hides latency to cloud compute resources with cloud caching
  • Provides easy scaling from 3 to 50 nodes to meet growing demands in shorter periods of time
  • Reduces cloud compute costs by as much as 90% by using less of expensive Azure block storage during processing
  • Eliminates the need to expand owned compute capacity, reducing data center footprint and supporting data center consolidation
  • Provides secure AES 256-encryption
  • Protects with Cloud Snapshots
  • Insights with powerful analytics

Enterprises and companies working within HPC environments see immediate benefits of flexibility and agility to match compute resources with business demands quickly and easily.
