High IOPS data storage solution for

Managed Database Providers and Operators.

Why simplyblock for managed database storage?

No matter if you are an MSP and CSP, offering managed database services, or a company operating your own database in Kubernetes, you require a high-IOPS, reliable and well-integrated block storage solution and benefit from our flexible, shared, high-performance block storage that integrates into your Kubernetes environment as if it was a match made in heaven.


We combine the baseline performance of best-in-class SAN systems with the flexibility and scalability of software-defined solutions. A single block storage cluster may serve multiple or many service customers in a multi-tenancy setup.


System costs up to 5x lower per TB and up to 50x lower per IOPS


Expansion, resize and hardware replacement at any time without maintenance windows or operational impact


Easily scalable within and across the rack. Linear performance (IOPS) growth with capacity increase.


Available in Kubernetes as a StorageClass via the native container storage interface (CSI).

Drop-in replacement for existing StorageClasses.

Ultra low access latency and great scalability

Similarly to ceph, simplyblock solution is based on commodity server hardware and TCP/IP but rather than proprietary SAN technology, it provides very low access latency, high IOPS/GB and CPU core, great scalability and flexibility.
