The next-generation

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

Software Storage That Just Works

Quobyte provides next-generation storage technology that eliminates operations overhead and let’s you focus on running your business.

Unified Software Storage

All Workloads

Handle file, block, and object storage within one unified and high-performance storage system (POSIX and Windows file systems, NFS, Hadoop/Spark, Amazon S3).

Complete Software Storage System

Fully Featured

Check and monitor your system’s health and automate your storage workflow with our inventory management, graphical console and API.

Software Defined Storage

100% Software

Build a horizontal storage infrastructure from the server hardware of your choice and avoid vendor lock-in.

A Genuine Data Center File System


Scale out from four nodes to entire data centers and beyond in no time. Handle petabytes of data with ease.


High availability and fault tolerance protect you against misbehaving hardware and network splits – and whatever else can go wrong in a data center.


Policy-based data placement enables partitioning, isolation and tiering – and allows reconfiguration at any time.

How Your Business Will Benefit


Build your own Google-style data center

Public cloud providers like Amazon have set a new benchmark for enterprise infrastructure in terms of agility and cost. These improvements have been made possible by new software technologies that employ standard server and networking equipment as a raw resource and provide an infrastructure that is not dependent on individual pieces of hardware.

With Quobyte’s software storage system, IT teams of all sizes benefit from the latest generation of distributed systems technology and can build infrastructures with game-changing qualities.


Quickly adapt your storage to your business needs

Quobyte’s unparalleled policy-driven configuration decouples storage from its physical ties which makes it a truly software-defined storage. Data is no longer bound to physical resources. When business demands change, the assignment of resources can be easily and quickly adapted – no hardware reconfiguration or service adaptations necessary and without any disruptions. Infrastructure is managed in a future-proof way: the decoupling of hardware, infrastructure administration and applications allow IT teams to work more independently – that enables DevOps best practices and self-service management.


Lower your TCO and free resources

Quobyte’s technology combines resilience and policy-defined configuration in a way that enables a much lower TCO for infrastructure. Hardware failures are handled automatically, degrading hardware to a mere resource. Hardware problems are no longer a sure-fire way to affect service quality. Instead of caring for individual pieces, hardware is serviced when new resources are needed. Even huge infrastructures can be run with a limited amount of active care, freeing manpower for important infrastructure projects.


Use cost-effective and replaceable standard equipment

The data center of the future is built from standard server hardware and high-performance Ethernet equipment. The commodity hardware foundation allows choosing and mixing hardware and hardware service models from different vendors in a customized way – depending only on the needs of your business.
