Fastest and Most Efficient NAS

You won’t believe it’s the same storage! The Avere FXT 5850 Edge filer makes your current network attached storage (NAS) unrecognizable with high performance, an all-Flash tier, and high efficiency.

With the right configuration of FXT 5850 Edge filer nodes, you can support high throughput requirements, top getattr and read performance at an efficient cost per GB.


Common Use Cases

Avere FXT 5850 Edge filers can add a cloud-ready storage tier to many enterprise workflows that demand performance, including genomic analysis, financial simulations, rendering, seismic processing, software development, and more.

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
  • Optimize performance of existing NAS storage to avoid expensive upgrades or expansion of storage infrastructure
  • Build a modern, cloud-enabled infrastructure with the ability to integrate cloud with existing environments
  • Reduce latencies commonly experience in HPC and grid computing (distributed computing) environments



Grow your cluster easily. Installations of the FXT 5850 scale to up to 24 nodes. For high availability, a 3-node cluster is a recommended starting configuration.
