Unified data storage solution for Hosting and Managed Service Providers of Kubernetes environments

Why simplyblock for Kubernetes hosting?

MSPs and CSPs offering Kubernetes hosting services require a performant, reliable and well-integrated block storage solution and benefit from simplyblock's flexible, shared, high-performance block storage as an alternative to SAN systems and other software-defined alternatives.


Simplyblock combines the baseline performance of best-in-class SAN systems with the flexibility and scalability of software-defined solution such as Ceph. A single block storage cluster may serve multiple or many private Kubernetes clusters in a multi-tenancy setup.


Easy to scale a single storage cluster within a rack and across racks. Output performance (IOPS) increases linearly when adding nodes to the cluster. A single storage cluster is enough to serve tens of thousands of containers and many Kubernetes clusters. The system provides full customer self-service capabilities via WS-APIs in a multi-tenancy setup.


System expansion and hardware change can be performed at any time without the need for
maintenance windows or impacting operations. It is possible to combine hardware vendors, server and drive models as needed to optimize costs and configuration.

Top Perfromance

Up tox lower system cost per TB and up to 50x lower system cost per IOPS while delivering baseline performance as best-in-class SAN systems in top configurations

Deep Integration

Simplyblock offers full, native integration for Kubernetes via CSI.

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.
