Common Use Cases

Avere FXT 5600 Edge filers can add a cloud-ready storage tier to many enterprise workflows that demand performance.

These models can be found installed in many industries to:

  • Provide seamless access to public cloud storage resources
  • Move large quantities of data from NAS-to-NAS or NAS-to-Object resources for upgrades, migrations, and data center consolidations
  • Offload performance from existing NAS storage to avoid expensive upgrades or expansion of storage infrastructure
  • Integrate private object storage installations with existing storage environment
  • Reduce latencies commonly experience in HPC and grid computing (distributed computing) environments
