Enterprise-Grade Provisioning

Quobyte is not just a file system, but host to any number of file system volumes. A composable quota mechanism limits their resource consumption. File system volumes can be assigned to tenants; these tenants form isolated compartments for file systems, users, and groups. Individual tenant administrators can be appointed to manage their respective file systems and quotas. Additional to file system-level access control, access to volumes can be also restricted to specific IP ranges or by using certificates.


Extensive Policy-Based Resource Allocation

Quobyte’s file system volumes are dynamically bound to storage resources through policies, which can control data location all the way down to the level of individual files. They enable tiering, isolation of workloads, subdivision into partitions, or taking advantage of heterogeneous hardware resources. When policies change, data placement is adapted accordingly without affecting service quality.

Policy-based Resource Allocation

Integrated Monitoring and Analytics

Quobyte’s detailed accounting, analytics, and monitoring tools provide valuable insights into the usage and dynamics of an installation. Analytics include graphs for top consumers, throughput, IOPS, file stats and creates. Built-in monitoring, alerting, and automation along with an interface to external monitoring systems make Quobyte a complete system out-of-the-box.


Built-In Hardware Management
