SHARED BLOCK STORAGE
Benefit from improved scalability and flexibility as well as significant cost advantages of our shared block storage.
Why simplyblock for shared block storage?
Enterprises, MSPs and CSPs have to rely upon fast, scalable, well-integrated and reliable shared storage for critical workloads. Simplyblock's shared block storage beats top of class SAN systems in performance, scalability and flexibility for a fraction of the costs.
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.
Access storage through a joint layer across distributed cloud and non-cloud deployments.
Linear scalability reduces operational efforts
With simplyblock Shared Block Storage output performance (IOPS) increases linearly when adding nodes to the cluster. A single cluster is enough to serve tens of thousands of virtual machines or containers and thousands of customers (in case of MSPs and CSPs). System provides full customer self-service capabilities via WS-APIs in a multi-tenancy setup.
Accelerate your performance while saving costs
Benefit from the first highly secure and scalable storage solution designed from scratch for hybrid clouds
10x cheaper per TB of storage and per k-IOPS than conventional SAN storage
Super-easy to switch
Switching between Amazon EBS Elastic Block Storage or S3 and simplyblock or back can be achieved in minutes
Linear scalability through distributed cluster architecture: scales beyond 100,000,000 IOPS
Designed for Hybrid-Cloud
Bandwidth-efficient (near) real-time replication from/to the AWS cloud independent of non-cloud storage infrastructure
Add, remove or replace SSDs and storage nodes at any time - the cluster will always re-balance storage usage and load across all available resources
Resilient against ransomware attacks
First block storage with zero RPO point-in-time recovery after ransomware attacks
