Hybrid Cloud NAS
Untether the Cloud: Your Data Stored Anywhere. No Sacrifices. No Roadblocks.
Hybrid Cloud NAS makes the location of your data flexible and easy to manage. It's NAS as you've never thought possible – in your data center or in the cloud. Your business is about creating, discovering, developing, and managing. It is time that these aren’t restricted by lofty storage costs, latency, and security concerns. Avere Systems is changing NAS. We do so not by supplying more capacity, but by giving you new options to leverage cloud and legacy infrastructure to eliminate roadblocks and open opportunities to more efficiently meet the needs of your users and customers.
Avere Hybrid Cloud NAS eliminates the latency associated with the cloud leveraging Edge-Core architecture to get active data right where users need it. It gives you the flexibility to choose the right storage at the right location for your business and access that storage from your on-premises or in-cloud computing resources.
Scalable Performance with High Availability
Built for the cloud, Avere Hybrid Cloud NAS uses object APIs to connect to public and private clouds, translating standard NAS protocols and protecting your application investments. Clustering enables Hybrid Cloud NAS to scale on-premises, tiered storage to millions of IOPS of performance and 450TB of capacity while ensuring high availability for your data. When used with the Virtual FXT Edge Filer, storage can also scale to support nearly unlimited compute resources while keeping your data located wherever you want it.
Easy Data Management
Whether data lives on premises or in the cloud, data movement is both transparent and easily managed. Integration of on-premises legacy NAS systems together with public and private object storage into a global namespace eliminates storage silos.
With Avere Virtual FXT Edge Filers, you can auto create and configure Virtual FXT nodes in the compute cloud without the need to touch any hardware. Applications are enabled with familiar NAS protocol interfaces and all of the NAS features enterprises demand. Avere Cloud NAS merges the best of cloud and NAS into one solution.
Cloud Snapshots allows data to easily be "snapped" to a cloud provider, giving users data protection beyond accidental deletion and data corruption to include protection from equipment failure.
Data Security in the Cloud
Your data remains secure as you add cloud to your architecture. Avere’s FXT Edge Filers, both physical and virtual, provide high degrees of security. Avere uses AES-256 encryption and is compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2.
Low Total Cost of Ownership
Avere Hybrid Cloud NAS provides the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO). Savings come from moving data to a public or private cloud, taking advantage of the most efficient storage for large-scale file stores. This movement provides operational cost savings from reduced (or even eliminated) footprint costs like rent, power and cooling.
In addition, by enabling easy access to cloud compute resources, savings compound by eliminating many infrastructure installation, expansion, and maintenance efforts.
