Quobyte provides your users and applications with the same high performance and reliable scale-out storage infrastructure on either bare metal x86 servers or your public cloud of choice. Use our features for data synchronization between clusters to combine on-prem and public cloud clusters into a grand unified global storage system.
For best results, use our recommended hardware and VM configurations. For custom configurations, such as those with separate metadata servers or to run multiple clusters, please talk to our engineers and partners.
Your choice of hardware and VMs depends on your workloads and performance requirements. You can mix different server types in a single Quobyte cluster, such as all flash for performance combined with dense HDD for archival, by utilizing our built-in policy based data management toolset.
When your workloads are a mix of random IO and throughput, or when you have cold data, mixed servers are a great combination of both media. They provide the best price/TB without compromising workloads.
Quobyte runs on all major public clouds. However, it pays to be discerning because picking the right VMs or bare metal machines helps you get the best performance. Since local NVMes on cloud instances are not persistent, we recommend a mix of local NVMe for scratch alongside persistent disks (EBS, PD...) for storage. Quobyte can automatically tier data to persistent disks and between different types of persistent disks (e.g. SSD and cold HDD).
The bare metal offerings on Oracle Cloud are ideal for latency sensitive and HPC applications. We recommend a configuration of three or more BM.DenseIO2.52 with local NVMes, each with
