Quobyte software turns commodity servers into a reliable data center f​ile system

Data Center File System

Quobyte’s next-generation file system unifies file, block and object storage for enterprise and scientific applications. Backed by a decade of research, its parallel file system core serves low-latency and high-throughput workloads within a single system.


Linear Scalability

Starting with four servers, Quobyte can be extended drive by drive and server by server. As a shared-nothing architecture, its IOPS and throughput scales linearly with every added resource.


Lights-out operations

All hardware will fail, so we built high availability and data protection into every component. Together with extensive management functionality, Quobyte handles failures automatically and enables non-disruptive upgrades.


Quobyte is built upon ten years of research in distributed systems and the development of the open source parallel file system XtreemFS.
