Exablox combines advanced Object-based storage functionality and usability with bring-your-own-disk-drives flexibility. Exablox is truly ending the need for storage hardware forklift upgrades.
Exablox’s cloud managed, scale-out, object-based storage appliance solves businesses’ common storage pain points: complicated installation, cumbersome storage management, limited capacity and forklift upgrades. Without the shackles of a legacy scale-up storage architecture, Exablox’s clean sheet approach combines the CIFS/SMB and NFS accessible OneBlox appliance with OneSystem, an elegant multi-tenant cloud-based management service.Inline Compression: Unlike existing architectures that store data as fixed-size blocks, Nimble CASL stores data as variable-size blocks, enabling real-time 2-4x data compression with no added latency.
Scale-out Architecture:OneBlox employs a seamless scale-out ring architecture supporting multiple OneBlox appliances presenting a single global file system. A ring may consist of one or multiple OneBlox, scaling from a few TBs to nearly 700TBs.
Dynamic Growth: Bring your own drives. No RAID, no LUNs, no volumes. OneBlox delivers the flexibility for organizations to mix-and-match drive types (SATA, SAS) and capacity (1-8TB) within the same OneBlox and within a OneBlox ring. Purchase exactly the capacity your organization needs at the beginning and then at any time in the future, increase capacity by mixing and matching any number of additional drives.
Agile and Affordable: The OneBlox agility to add storage at any time comes with the additional benefit of delivering significant cost savings. Exablox’s bring your own drive philosophy treats commodity disk drives as commodities..
Data Protection: OneBlox’s continuous data protection ensures that all of the information stored is fully protected. By taking continuous and unlimited snapshots of information written to OneBlox, every file can be easily recovered in the event of data corruption, deletion, or other errors.
